COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Previously known as ’Dead Pony Club’.

Bottle and keg: Filtered

Ingredients: Spring Blend, Cara and Crystal Malts; Simcoe, Citra and HBC hops.

This Californian Pale Ale packs a huge hoppy punch. A 21st century low amplitude, high voltage hop hit. Some people say slow is good. We believe fast is better. Being shot from a Hoppy Howitzer beats the hell out of trotting round a submissive paddock. That’s why the internal combustion engine got mounted onto two wheels. Screw down the throttle and listen for that dull banshee howl floating back from those malted mufflers. Drink fast, live fast, sleep late and rip it up down empty streets. This pale ale is chopped, tuned and ready to roll. Fuel up and hold tight, this little thoroughbred kicks like a mule. Perfect for drinking by the bottle, case or even keg.

Pours cloudy orangey brown with a fairly big light head. This isnt as hoppy as you would be led to believe, and that is not necessarily a bad thing. This is quite a light beer. This would be great as a draught beer on a warm day. It is also has a sensible alcohol content making this one you could drink as a session beer.

altonbrownd (3680) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 27, 2013
Bottle from De Molen online. Hazy grapefruit body with perky head. Nose is hops and grapefruit and ctirus. Lots and lots of hops in the taste, really nice. Sweet, fruity and very refreshing. Lots of hops in the bitter finish too. Well done.

mcberko (8062) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 27, 2013
On tap at Brewdog Birmingham, pours a clear bronze with a small off-white head. Aroma of herbal hops, some butterscotch notes and a bit of toffee. Flavour brings out slightly fruity, herbally hops, some butterscotch and some vegetal notes. Some weird off-flavours in here, but it’s still fairly enjoyable. Decent.

allmyvinyl (5159) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 26, 2013
Can @ home. Pours a golden orange colour with short white head that doesn’t last. Nose is trademark Brewdog hoppiness - very fruity. Taste is more hop fruits, but not as bitter as I’d expected. Pretty well-balanced. There’s a thinness to the flavour that you’d expect with this low an abv. Finish is good.

Bottle from Brugsen. Nice head with good duration. Color is golden. Aroma and taste are rich mango, grapefruit, apricot, flowers, hops and malt. Very nice and easy drinkable.

bierkoning (10794) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - APR 25, 2013
Bottle. Orange blonde. Pineapple, lychee and some oily hops in the aroma. Thin. Firm floral oily hopbitter flavor with grapefruit and lychee. Lovely!

JKaranka (47) - Cardiff, WALES - APR 25, 2013
Pours light amber, with some lacing, off-white head. Aroma is strong and fruity. There’s some caramel, mango and peach, offset with cat urine (I assume that is the simcoe). The taste doesn’t quite follow the aroma. Yes, it is hoppy, but a lot of the fruit is gone. There’s a tangy dryness in the finish, that turns into hop bitterness once the crystal malts recede. Overall it’s ok, but not quite as good as it promises.

Plovmand (6752) - Helsinge, DENMARK - APR 25, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear deep golden with a dense off white head. The aroma is heavy fruity hoppy with notes of peach, mango and passion fruit. The flavor is citrus, passion fruit and peach. Light bodied. Great session beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Deu (864) - Nantes, FRANCE - APR 25, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2013 Bottle at the brew dock in Dublin. Clear Orange colour. Taste of tropical fruit. Almost no bitterness at the end. Really impressed. Y
