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.

HUGELY hoppy nose with tons of citric, grassy, piney notes. Pours a medium gold with a strong head. The flavour is excellent given the strength of the beer with mango and lychee coming through and finishing into pine needles, orange and lemon peel and candy. Trust Brewdog to produce a session beer of such distinction. A little thin perhaps if one had to criticise but at 3.8%, waddya expect? Excellent.

(Bottled) Drinking this after jogging was nice and for context sake did an excellent job, this would be cool to sink on a warm day with its refreshing palate dominated by zesty peppery fruit hops -grapefruit.pine and toffee notes . I will purcase often .

Sizzler80 (488) - Dublin, IRELAND - FEB 15, 2013
Amber cloudy pour with a frothy white head and lace. Aroma: lots going on. Hops, mandarin, lemon peel, caramel, grapefruit, pine, slightly soapy. Taste and mouthfeel: Silky, tangy with good carbonation. Lots of hoppy bitterness. Sweet from the malts and fruit. You do pick up a little soap. Still very good.

planky84 (2189) - , Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2013
Bottle from Lee Green Sainsburys who have slightly improved their shockingly dull beer range with this offering and 660ml bottles of PUNK IPA...hooray!! Amber pour with a white head. Grapefruit, peach skin, pine and pear drop aroma. Light citrus tang and a lot of bitter fruit. Hoppy, bitter finish. Not bad.

garthicus (2745) - Dublin, IRELAND - FEB 13, 2013
Appearance: golden yellow with a large Snow White head. Aroma: wonderfully hopped, cat piss and pine cones, lemon & mango. Hop-tastic. Flavour: lots of hops, pine cones, a little catty, mango skin, lemon peel, medium hoppy lemon finish. Really great example of a session beer that can be suitably flavorful. Beautiful.

Piero1987 (686) - Iglesias, ITALY - FEB 10, 2013
Golden clear color with ivory head, not persistent. Intense citrus aroma, also herbal and resin. At taste is bitter with little malty flavour and good body for a 3,8%.

gyllenbock (5079) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 10, 2013
On tap at Bishops Folkis, February 2013. Clear amber with a medium white head. I liked the aroma of this one, fresh with citrus and orange. The taste was ok but not as good as the aroma. Crisp mouthfeel with a medium bitter finish. A tasty session beer.

ciaranc (1015) - Dublin, IRELAND - FEB 9, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2013 Clear copper-gold, with a soapy head that bubbles away to nothing. Doesnt look great. Big citrusy, grapefruit hop nose, pretty strong. Taste is mellower than the aroma, more grapefruit bitterness, an understand malt sweetness. Hops again to the fore in the finish, quite strong, numbing even. A touch watery in body. OK, but not my fave brewdog. Nice to have so much flavour in a 3.8 % ABV beer though. 114 calories too!
