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.

Apa comparison session. This one was easily distinguished by the brewdog aroma of hops and peaches. A bit lacking cause of the abv, but generally really good beer.

Golden-amber with normal head. Carbonation is medium. Good body though its light in alcohol. Big hop aroma. More floral than citrus, some grass. Dry finish, not very bitter, well balanced. Good one

Flanfl (248) - Bordeaux, FRANCE - AUG 1, 2015
Clear deep golden body. Medium white head. Nice grassy aroma with citrus grapefruits and light caramel notes. Flavour of grassy hops, citrus and light caramel notes. Thin body and medium carbo. Short lightly bitter finish. Quite a good pale ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Excellente ! Très fine et désaltérante ! Très peu de corps, elle porte très bien son nom de pale ale. Le nez montre de belles notes herbales typique du houblon simcoe. La bouche est très peu amer et montre de l’herbal de manière très subtile.

Hazy orange beer, medium off-white head. Nose is citric hops, some earthy notes. Flavor is hops forward, grassy notes, citrus, caramel. Earthy hops and bitterness in the finish. Has more body than I expected for the ABV. Not a bad quaffer.

Bottle. Light orange colour with minimal head. The smell is very nice, fruity, citrusy, grassy. Rather mild, sweet and fruity taste with some herbal tones. Followed by a bitter finish which is quite heavy, but not very long-lasting.

Krigla (123) - SLOVENIA - JUL 24, 2015
Bottle, 0.33l. Clear light orange color with big, frothy white head which leaves nice lacing on the pint glass. Lively carbonation. Fruity and citrus aroma. Taste is mild sweet followed by some herbs and strong bitterness. Overall delicious beer.

Fashawn (430) - Montesarchio, ITALY - JUL 22, 2015
Aolidissima, rinfrescante. Ambrata, velature rosse, aroma di arancia e pompelmo oltre ad un po’ di caramello. Estramente dunk, appiccicosa al palato e piena di agrumi. Croccante e buona, sì lascia bere con molta facilità

Kolor: Złocisty, piwo jest lekko opalizujące. Piana: Obfita, drobnopęcherzykowa, ale niezbyt trwała. Koronka śladowa. Aromat: Słodkie owoce tropikalne wymieszane z żywicą. Intensywny i bardzo przyjemny. Smak: Wytrawne, pełnia niska, ale piwo nie jest wbrew moim obawom wodniste. Goryczka niska (mogłaby być dużo wyższa) i krótka. W smaku więcej jest żywicy niż jakichkolwiek owoców. Jest przyzwoicie. Wysycenie: Średnie do wysokiego. Jak na mój gust trochę za wysokie. Opakowanie: Fajna puszka z nowej serii opakowań Brew Doga. Brak składu na minus. Uwagi: Dobre APA z fajnym aromatem i niezłe w smaku. Niski woltaż na plus. Na minus zdecydowanie piana i za niska goryczka.

On tap: Orange / light brown haze colour, with creamy stabil white head. Visualy medium carbonation. Aroma is sweet, prevails notes of fruits. Taste is also Friuty sweet, with notes of oranges, mango, pineapple, etc. Finish is bitter and slightly dry. Malt sweetness and hop bitterness are medium and they are very well balanced. Surprisingly good beer for so low abv.
