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.

Bottle at De paas. Pours clear dark golden with an off white head. Aroma of grapefruit, peach and pineapple, HBC very evident. Flavour is light sweet and moderate bitter. Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Heavy hopping makes this a very nice low ABV beer.

seritomi (308) - HUNGARY - MAR 15, 2013
Szép tiszta, borostyán színű. Sajnos a habja nem túl erős. Illata csodálatosan friss, gyantásan fanyar a végén kevés kávés bukéval. Íze savanykás és keserű, élénk. Kellemes gyógynövényes. Csak sajnos erőtlen teste van tehát elég "vizes". Hiányzik a maláta karaktere. Tudom, hogy itt egy hígabb sör lenne a cél de nekem ez nem jön be... A komlók keltette aromák viszont nagyon tutik. Általában megfognak a punkok a söreikkel de ez most nem kapott el...

Det har är inte bara roligt utan ocksĺ jävligt bra. Jag är verkligen imponerad ätt de lyckats fĺ ihop en riktigt bra öl pĺ bara 3,8%. Smaken är fruktig med inslag av grapefrukt och ananas, visst är kroppen i minsta laget men det blir sekundärt tack vare himlen.

Cloudy golden. Small offwhite head. Aroma of caramel and ripe bananas. Grassy hoppy taste. Great for it’s abv.

UPDATED: OCT 16, 2014
Sep 2012 - cold bottle. Pineapple and mango, with a sharp bitterness. This is a very well balanced example of the American pale ale. Very drinkable, enjoyable. Would have again. Good stuff (4.0)

Oct 2012 - V cold bottle. Mild bitterness, but with a sweet fruitiness. Possibly a bit too cold, and some of the flavours seemed dampened. well balanced and drinkable nonetheless. (3.5)

Feb 2013 – Very different to the first time I tried this. A rounded bitterness that starts in the middle and lasts. Straw is the main thing that comes to mind, with some lager flavours. No fruitiness at all which is a stark contrast to the first bottle. Interesting in its own right though. (3.5)

May 2013 - Again, straw, mint and lager. Must have changed the recipe, as this is not an old bottle. (3.4)

Oct 2014 - I thought I’d never have this again, and then a free glass arrived courtesy of Brewdog staff. My thanks. Hazy orange, small ring of white head. Body is medium, smooth, medium carbonation. Taste is herbal, grassy, straw, touch of cucumber. Similar to last time. Pity that this has changed so much - I still have memories of the original recipe. (3.3)

Fresh strong hop aroma. Pale, translucent, medium white head. Taste plane but hoppy. A very good 3.8% beer

javiercrasher (175) - Granada, SPAIN - MAR 13, 2013
Color ambar bastante pálido con esponjosa espuma blanca aunque va desapareciendo dejar muy manchados los bordes. Aroma muy floral y cítrico. De cuerpo ligero y bien gasificada. En boca cítrica y bastante lupulada. Final amargo Muy buena cerveza de sesión.

Lovely dark golden colour with frothy white head. Smell of citrus flowers, gives me a feeling of spring. Flavour is sweet grapefruit, with a nice bitter finish. A refreshing beer that I'm glad my local store has in stock :) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jfb (4081) - Freising, GERMANY - MAR 13, 2013
(bottle) pours a slightly hazy amber colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of herbal hops, lemon peel and grapefruit, quite resinous, with notes of freshly cut grass. flavour is slightly green and yeasty, with notes of straw, again lots of lemons, grapefruit and a light-bitter slightly minerally finish. light to medium-bodied with lively carbonation.

Borresteijn (4925) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 10, 2013
33cl Bottle from De Bierkoning. Clear golden amber colour, dense white head. Aroma of strong citrus hops, light cat piss, passion fruit, grapefruit, light crisp malts, really nice. Flavour is sharply hopped, citrus and pine, grapefruit, hint of weed, light grainy, crisp malts, strong bitter hoppy pine and grapefruit finish. Light-bodied. Excellent summer beer I guess, love the low ABV as well.
