COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Also 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.

Birra bevuta in pizzeria a Conversano. Bottiglia da 33 vicina alla scadenza. Naso leggero, pungente, corpo leggero, bilanciato. Sovracarbonato rispetto ai precedenti assaggi. Peccato per la bottiglia vecchia e forse mal conservata.

Aromas of pine resin and citrus peel/oils with some background bread and slight caramel. Palate is medium-light body and medium carbonation.

Slightly hazy. - Aroma: good aromas of tropical fruits: mango, passion fruit, peach, grapefruit, citrus zest and hints of some weird aroma i couldn’t identify. - Taste: light sweetness, light-to-medium bitterness, a little bit of sourness which provides a light citric touch. - Palate: light-to-medium body, watery-to-oily texture, under average carbonation, long dry finish with hints of tropical fruits like mango and passion fruit, peach, grapefruit. - Overall: very good appearance and aromas except for a weird and light aroma i couldn’t identify.

Mousse légčre. Couleur or foncé. Au nez su litchi et un mélange de souffre et d’eau de cuisson. En bouche c’est léger et frais. Amertume assez présente, mais franche. Arričre bouche dans la continuité du nez. Pas mal dans le genre.

bunget (844) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 13, 2016
On tap at Brewdog pub in London. Hazy golden body with minimal white head. Amazing fresh and fruity aroma: oranges, mangoes, peaches and apricots, all bursting fresh. Taste is very juicy: orange caramel, grapefruit zest and sweet malt. Very light bitterness yet full of flavor. Light, refreshing and exceptional.

Really fruity and hoppy, little bit of herbs go through my mind too. Super easy to drink, still vivacious with it’s bubbles but smooth enough to enjoy all day
