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.

Dzhigga (185) - Kirov, RUSSIA - MAR 23, 2015
Bottle. Orange color with thin unsteady head. Aroma is hoppy, grapefruit. Taste is mildly bitter. Medium carbonized. Light-bodied beer. Finish is rather long with fine bittersweet notes. Nice IPA for long drinking.

Very floral on the nose, the palate is warming but fades too quickly. A lovely drop that just doesn't follow through on the potential. Put this the eaky for a long day of session beers, but nothing to take your hat off too.

wiedrzensky (98) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAR 17, 2015
Bottle. Hazy amber with thick white head. Aroma is fruity, peachy, caramel, light roasted. Aroma is light bitter, light sweet, bit acidic for me. Light bitter finish.

neongolden (680) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 17, 2015
(330ml can, new label/name, from Systembolaget Tornby) Pours pale gold. Aroma of grapefruit rind, orange, grassy, slightly earthy funky dank hop note, slight pale malt. On the palate, lots of grapefruit rind, a little orange too, grassy, slight grain and a touch of wheaty feel. Lightly sweet at most. A light but dry grassy and herbal bitterness. Mineral in the finish. Light bodied with fairly high carb. A pretty decent session IPA really, nothing spectacular here but it ticks the boxes for the style with a brisk, fairly fruity hop driven refreshing feel.

cervmagpt (286) - PORTUGAL - MAR 17, 2015
Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 10A). Bottle 33 cl - Batch 239. AROMA: a nice blend of hop aromas with notes of passionfruit, peach and floral, with a sweet and caramelized malt background. APPEARANCE: amber, coppery color with material in suspension. medium ivory head with average retention. TASTE: predominant hop flavour with citric, floral and resinous notes. very faint malt background. high bitterness that vanishes after a while. finishes semi-dry. PALATE: thin body with average carbonation. OVERALL: a nice american pale ale with good aromas and hop predominant flavour.

Przyzwyczajony do APA, IPA, IIPA przeżyłem mocne zaskoczenie po spróbowaniu season IPA. Takie cieńkie, wodniste z aromatem amerykanskich chmieli. W sumie ciekawe doświadczenie, ale czy bym powtórzył? Nie wiem...
