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.

Bottle @ home, shared with Ansjelaah. Hazy orange colour with a small white head. Smells fresh, hoppy, fruity, chive.. Smells amazing. Too bad it tastes quite watery though. Luckily you can taste some hops, pine, resin, orange peel and other fruits. Thin body, lovely crispy carbo.

brnandersen (2379) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 5, 2013
33 cl. bottle. Clear, light amber colour with a golden tint. Dense, white head. Fruity aroma with citrus, floral and grapefruit hops. Light caramel malts. Taste is light bitter. Light to medium body, lively carbonation. Finishes bitter with citrus fruits, resins and malts. A bit thin bodywise however, very flavourful - and no soapy notes as often seen on hoppy beers with a lower alcohol content. Good.

kerolasa (409) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2013
Smells hops. First taste has lots of hops, and some sweetness. Oh, the description text is talking about simcoe and citra hops, they must be the nice floral source of aroma which I have related to many other nice beers. Apparently these hops are magic powder which make nearly any beer if not great at least better. But back to this beer. Other than the crisp hoppiness there does not seem to much else going on, which is not necessarily bad thing. If it would a good non-complex beer such as this would get by mistake lower score than it deserves. From other qualities fairly slick texture, and lively carbonation combined with long finish makes this recommendable. I bet this beer would be spot on choice with food which has potatoes as primary ingredients.

BeerCast_Rich (1903) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 5, 2013
[keg, BrewDog Edinburgh] Clear golden pour, decent puffy white head. Aroma is that classic BrewDog Simcoe bolt – musty fruit, tangy and yet sweaty at the same time. Loads of grapefruit on the flavour – I imagine from the Citra, battling back. Tastes like PunkLite – which is no bad thing, of course, these days [29032013]

Bottle @ home thanks to Dutchdrebus. Full sized decently lasting off-white head on top of a clear rusty orange-golden colored beer. Nice aroma of grapefruit, bitter and hops. Taste is very bitter, some hops, slightly grapefruit. Thin body, medium carbonation.

Lowenbrau (2517) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - APR 4, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2013 330ml bottle @Cimmeria, Oviedo. Really nice fruity aromas, peach and citrusy. Pours clear dark gold, with nice white head, persistent, some lacing. light to medium body, average carbonation, crispy texture. Taste is citrusy, hoppy, fresh. Very quaffable, well balanced and enjoyable.

fiammanghilla (765) - Genova, ITALY - APR 4, 2013
Bottiglia 33cl Piuttosto chiara con schiuma fine e non molto persistente. Non troppo amara, si fanno sentire i luppoli americani, un fruttato davvero particolare. La bassa gradazione alcolica non fa che aumentarne la beverinità...

Bottle purchased from Beer Cellar in Singapore. Amazing strong aroma but then has a real watery mouth feel. Could drink all afternoon and might even end up hydrated. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Strong hoppy aroma, nice frothy head. Aroma misleads however, nice bitterness, but the just turns to water. Ok beer.
