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.

Bottle from Sainsburys. Pours light, pale gold with short whit head. Aroma is light floral nothing to mad. however it really kicks off on the taste front. citrus, floral flovours are so well balance and a great use of the hop varieties make this a very nice drink. light in body but maximum flavour. Nice finish which hints at much strong ABV american IPA’s but without the massive bitterness you would associate with them. A great drink for a summer BBQ session for sure.

Syfher (315) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 27, 2016
Bottle of 33cl, in a Tulip glass; from the fridge. Nice and refreshing season ale, but with some deeply non-palate. The colour is lgiht-bronze, with a fuzzy white head. Aroma of citrus and pineapple, with a classic, fruity season taste. Great one.

bonev (232) - POLAND - AUG 24, 2016
Piwo klarowne w kolorze jasny bursztyn z dosc obfita grubopecherzykowa piana. W aromacie bardzo intensywne nuty cytrusowe i trawiaste. W smaku raczej wytrawne z grejpfrutowa goryczka. Dosc lekkie i pijalne, troche brakuje ciala ale to chyba akurat ok jesli chodzi o styl. Gdyby wysycenie bylo na wyzszym poziomie to piwo byloby bardziej orzezwiajace.

aleigator (758) - GERMANY - AUG 23, 2016
Pours a clear amber, copper color with a huge, spongy white head. Smells of cakey sweet malts, fresh cut grass and citrus zest. Malts are quite profound on the nose and define the aromas with a nice hoppy accent cutting through. Has a lower, not well fitting carbonation as it reveals the beers watery, overly light body to easily. Tastes of an aqueous beginning, mixed up with some cakey malts and dry, herbal, orange hops. Finishes watery and dull with a soft hop presence prevailing, which unfortunately is not able to safe this from being boring. One dimensional, not overly refreshing or clevery put together. Just making it a lower alcohol "session" beer does not justify it for me to tone down all the flavors till they are hardly recognizable any longer.

UPDATED: AUG 22, 2016 Bottle at kaschk in Berlin. Pours hazy orange. Smells of hops and fruits. Taste fills the mouth immidiately with the Same notes as the smell, bit heavier on the hops. A bit sour in the aftertaste, but great to Drink!

Rami Rami is drinking a Dead Pony Club by BrewDog at BrewDog Warszawa Baaaardzo cytrusowo intensywny aromat, w uscie gorzej, ale nadal bardzo milo. Dziwne, ze pieni sie na maksa z kranu a niskie wysycenie

Lele (408) - Padova, ITALY - AUG 19, 2016
ASPETTO: ambrato molto chiaro e abbastanza limpido. Schiuma giallognola chiarissima, abbondante, fine e persistente. AROMA: forti sentori di frutti tropicali, luppolo e pesca. GUSTO: si avverte anche un dolce delicato e fruttato, ma ovviamente la birra vira sull’amaro, un amaro erbaceo e un po’ floreale. Gustosa e molto dissetante. Buon lavoro!

ochniczek (257) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2016
33cl bottle. Clear medium orange colour with a average lacing, mostly lasting white head. Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, moderate hoppy, grass, citrus. Flavor is light sweet and bitter with a long duration. Texture is oily, carbonation is low.

kaserov (108) - Oviedo, SPAIN - AUG 16, 2016
Color ámbar con capa de espuma blanca de un dedo de grosor. Poca carbonatación. Aroma a lúpulo y más lúpulo, frutal, cítrico. Sabor muy similar al aroma. Adictiva. De lo mejor que he probado de Brewdog. No creo que sea una Session IPA, más bien una Session Pale Ale.

Pyobon (1269) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 14, 2016
(Can) Pours slightly hazy amber with very small white head. Lovely aroma of citrus and pine with maybe a hint of biscuit. Light bodied with bright carbonation. Lovely foretaste matching the aroma - citrus and pine over a biscuity malt. The mid-palate lacks body, which is I guess OK for a session beer. The finish has some nice hoppy flavours, but comparatively modest bitterness. Great for a session beer, but a bit lacking really.

UPDATED: AUG 11, 2016 Appearance: Golden color, white, light head. Aroma: Citrus, grapefruit, very nice though delicate. Taste: Citrus, hoppy, bitterness could be a bit higher. Overall: Nice and light session IPA. Very drinkable.
