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.

This is a fast drink. 3,8% Hoppy and enjoyable pine, grass and citrus aroma. The immediate aftertaste is sort of grapefruit. I love the way the bitter long aftertaste is actually PLEASANT - reminds me of dried Himalayan pepper.

hoplover66 (65) - Barcelona, SPAIN - AUG 29, 2015
Color ámbar turbio, espuma blanca persistente. Aroma fuerte de resinas, mango y cítrico. En boca resulta un poco aguada, con poco cuerpo, pero bastante agradable, con un puntito picante por la carbonatación. Final muy amargo y persistente. Refrescante.

Hopmaestro (660) - Örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 26, 2015
Aroma is very hoppy and the taste is even hoppier, yes, it has a super thin body but what do you expect? If you look on it for what it is, a low percenter that is perfect for when you want to have one (or a few) and don’t want to get shit-faced. Excellent beer!

chrisbruce (18) - SCOTLAND - AUG 25, 2015
Clear honey golden with a stable off-white head. Strong fruity aroma. Clear notes of yellow fruits, grassy hops and something malty (caramel) as well. Sweetish and moderately bitter taste with lingering fruity and herbal tones. Tastewise pretty mild with a fairly long duration.

jinroh (802) - ESTONIA - AUG 23, 2015
Pours clear, amber-ish, bit of white foam. Aroma is surprisingly fruity, with some nice hops - and the taste does it also justice. However, when it warms, it breaks apart and it is more difficult for me to enjoy this. I wonder if this is why I am not very big on session IPA’s? Maybe I should just drink faster :)

Bottle 330ml. Clear golden with small beige head. Aroma of tropical fruits, lychee, citrus, maybe notes of fringed rue, floral with some graininess. Citrusy flavor, notes of onion, piney, light hoppy bitterness with, light caramel sweetness. Medium-bodied.
