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.

Bottled 330ml (Birger, BB 08/2013)
Clear amber color, small white head. Strong aroma of cat piss/gooseberries. Light bodied. Fruity, tickling gooseberry hoppyness. Session beer with unconventional hop profile.

mahkus (45) - Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - FEB 22, 2015
Bottle from sainsburys. Golden colour. Hoppy aroma. Flavoursome aftertaste s. Jus don’t see the point of pale ale with so strong hoppy flavor but lacking in alcohol.

Stew41 (1783) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - FEB 21, 2015
Dry, herbal, some faint aniseed and gradually hardening bitterness. This is not massively hoppy, despite the commercial description, but rather a very good session beer. Excellent flavour depth at 3.8%.

willisread (155) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 17, 2015
330ml can from a friend. Poured into a shaker half pint. Copper color with a nice off-white head that dissipates quickly. Grassy and citrus aromas mixed with some tropical fruit as well. Nice crisp dry finish. Awesome session beer.

cityzen (19) - FRANCE - FEB 16, 2015
C’est bien simple, il n’existe pas mieux, ni plus équilibré. Amertume parfaite, gout fruité exquis avec des notes de fruits de la passion subtile. Systématiquement une réussite.

bewyder (160) - FRANCE - FEB 16, 2015
Un nez intéressant, et en première bouche amertume sur agrumes, pamplemousse, mais finale désagréable sans longueur et goût d’eau. Bouteille achetée en grandes surfaces, Paris, France, bue le 07/02/2015.

alberti92 (105) - - FEB 16, 2015
Bottle from cellarbrations super store in hami hill. Pours hazy orange with a thin white head. Aroma is fairly delicate with some sweet malts and tropical fruits. Body is light like the carbonation. Taste is so good for a midstrength. It has heaps of passion fruit, a little grass and citrus. Really good beer this was!

hank37 (139) - banksia grove, AUSTRALIA - FEB 13, 2015
Can from mane liquor. Pours hazy dark amber with fluffy head that thins quickly. Smelling pine, splice ’pineapple’ icecreams, Taste is out of this world for a lower abv APA. Thick maple, with dank resin notes alongside salted caramel and piney freshness.

Pours copper with a decent white head. Aroma of citrus fruits. Taste is initially sweet citrus with a bitter finish. Nice for a main production beer.
