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.

larsga (6446) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 8, 2013
Medium offwhite head. Hazy amber body with light carbonation. Catty mango aroma with faint dried durian notes. Dry-sweet pineapple taste with salty mango notes. Light body. Mildish mouthfeel. Dryish salty mango and resin aftertaste with catty oily notes. Long lingering resiny finish. It’s quite nice, and far less harsh than one would assume, given the low ABV and high alcohol. Really quite a feat to make this. (0.33l bottle, Meny Oslo City.)

fantasticfilm (3) - Essex, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2013 does not count
Bottle: pours a nice amber colour with a decent head. It's the smell that gets you with this one... The hops smell amazing (the Simcoe I guess) only problem is the taste doesn't live up to the smell. Faint hoppy taste and a barely existent aftertaste. Mouthfeel is very thin and watery. Such a disappointment after that smell needs much more of a punch! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Meny Oslo City enjoyed at home
Copper hazy, beige head. Smells of grapes and grapefruit, hints of cat pee, quite refreshing aroma. Taste is light sweet and disappear almost instantly to the heavy bitter finish. Feels like eating unripe fruits - this mouthfeel don’t appeal much to me. The light body is totally overrun by the hop show here. Sad, because the aroma was very promising
