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.

Thomasalias (320) - Budapest, - NOV 10, 2012
0,33l bottle from Csakajósör, Budapest. Clear, orange color with medium white head. Strong pine and resin odor. Intensive, agressive, resin, pine and a little bit grass aroma. Clear, dry, medium bitter taste. Light body, slick texture and lively carbonation with small bubbles. Dry, hoppy finish. This is a nice, delicious, small bodied, well-hopped beer. The malty flavour can’t be really felt. Intensive, "kick ass" hoppy one. Easily drinkable, light beer.

BuckeyeBoy (2938) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 2, 2015
330ml can pours out a nice golden color topped with a small white head. Nose is lemon zest tropical fruit and some sweetness. Taste is more of the tropical fruit a nice light malt to help keep it good. A tasty session ipa

Lemon candy, caramelized orange. Rich fruity hops, sweet caramel, grapefruit peel, hints of cinnamon bittersweet finish. Quite a classic citrus/caramel brewdog ale, does the job fine.

heman (130) - Tychy, POLAND - MAR 1, 2015
Piwo ma jasno bursztynową barwę i bardzo ładną pianę, intensywną, ale szybko opadającą i zanikającą. Aromat czuć już z daleka, potężna dawka bardzo świeżych i soczystych cytrusów. Już po zapachu obiecujemy sobie dużo. Smak także zdominowany przez cytrusy, głównie jest to grejpfrut. Piwo jest minimalnie kwaskowate, niezwykle orzeźwiające, lekkie i bardzo pijalne. Goryczka jest na średnim poziomie, bardzo przyjemna.

0,33 box fra systembolaget. 2cm hvitt skum som forsvinner øyeblikkelig. Ingen kraftig aroma eller smak. Litt slapp i smaken.. Er nok alkoholstyrken som gjør at dette smaker litt som et "lett" øl.. Greitt nok som gressklipperøl ��

Abrakarl (364) - SWEDEN - FEB 27, 2015
Ultimately a slightly disappointing effort. Good amount of bitter hops that has a worse taste.

BRW (1219) - Barcelona, SPAIN - FEB 26, 2015
On tap at Brewdog barcelona. Amber colour with white head. Citric aroma. Citric, grass, hoppy taste. Medium body.

mahkus (50) - 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 (1784) - 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 (200) - 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.

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.
