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.

TBone (13707) - Pori, - SEP 21, 2012
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.

Pours amber orange with sweet aroma of citrus and hops and bubbly head which disappeared instantly. Bitter-sweet hoppy palate of orange.

Estebanik (102) - Lublin, POLAND - MAY 14, 2015
Pite z puchy. Ladny zloty kolor. Piana drobna, ale znika bardzo szybko. W aromacie grejpfruty, karmel i po ogrzaniu niestety lekka kanaliza. W smaku o dziwo nieco kwasne. Goryczka niska. Dziwne piwo, w ktorym slodowosc balansuje kwasek.

wiwetu (60) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAY 15, 2015
Butelka, 0,33. Bardzo przyjemne w aromacie, cytrusowe, lekko wyczuwalne mango. Niezła piana, choć dość szybko się uszczupla. Lekka goryczka przełamywana owocowością, trochę ziółek. Drobne ciało, bardzo przyjemnie przepływa przez gardło, bez zalegającej, nieprzyjemnej goryczki. Z takim woltażem - to niczym piwo zamiast herbaty. Czekam na polski odpowiednik po polskiej cenie

at_the_hop (57) - Worcestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2015
Beautiful pure botanical hop smell. Lovely rich and hazy amber colour with a sticky looking head. I really like the simplistic balance of this beer - toasty dry malt and bitter hops. It’s clean, refreshing drinkable but still full of flavour and loads of body for what is really an understrength session ale. Really clever brew.

huineman (300) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 11, 2015
Pours honey amber. Big bubbles. Not so rocky white head. Aroma is grapefruit, rucola, orange peel, honey. Fizzy, thin, quite powerful. Long bitter finish.

Cokemonkey11 (149) - - MAY 12, 2015
Brown bottle, co-op. 330ml. Pours medium amber and very transparent. No head. Scent is extremely citrus and grapefruit. Taste is overwhelming medium range hops. Slightly sour and a bit dry. Finish is smooth and complex. Great

Alengrin (3019) - BELGIUM - MAY 17, 2015
Low-alcohol APA with stable, off-white, sticky head and beautiful deep orange blonde, almost amber colour with a lot of fizz. Nice and perfumey aroma of pine resin, grapefruit, orange peel, bitter honey, peanuts, walnuts, nettles, caramel, toasted bread. Soft and restrainedly fruity taste, some banana and apricot, malt ’fruitiness’, very smooth, light on the tongue, medium carbo, biscuity and herbally, citrussy hoppy finish, bittering and a bit resinous. Brewdog has done pretty extreme things in its existence, but this one is clearly about drinkability and balance, and achieves very well at that.

minihame2 (260) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 23, 2015
Orange pour, small white head with a yellow tint. Hops on the nose, hint of caramel and some grass. Taste has a hoppy rush at first. Other than that it’s very light as one might expect. You get a bit of citrus in the background. The end is quite amusing as it almost feels like it dissipates in your mouth. Mouthfeel is very light with some carbonation to soften it up. It’s alright for an lighter IPA, very easy to drink and enjoy.

Gangstergafje (169) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - MAY 14, 2015
The beer has a beautiful orange amber color. The beer is clear. There is a layer of rough white foam, wich disapears quickly. The smell is really good. There are fruity citrusy hop aroma’s wich fulfill the nose with a sensation of spring. The smell is resly sweet and refreshing. The taste also has this citrusy hop aroma’s. The taste is perfectly bitter, very nice.
