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.

gnoff (7979) - Mölndal, - NOV 12, 2012
Draught at Ölrepubliken on November 12, 2012. During the BrewDog tap take over/week.
Clear copper color, dense yellow head. Sweet, caramel, hoppy, citrus, pine taste. Rather well balanced and tasty. Smooth yet a bit spritzy mouthfeel, medium bitterness. Pine aftertaste. Citrus, hoppy, herbal scent.
I like tasty low ABV beers and I like hoppy but not overly bitter beers, so all in all I like this beer!

Wie der kleine Bruder des Punk IPA. Noch mehr Aromen, fruchtiger. Wenig dünner, flacher. Aber fein.

I think I got an old bottle. The aroma from the bottle was great with lots of citrus, but when poured the beer smelled of honey. A decent bitter finish is still there.

Gregmcfish (8) - SCOTLAND - DEC 7, 2014 does not count
330ml bottle. Pours a little hazy with a medium and diminishing white head. Aroma of gorgeous hops, caramel, toast and honey. Taste is bitter sweet grapefruit and hops. Good mouth feel due to the mild and steady carbonation, thin and wet finish. Hop heaven. The founders of this top performing Scottish brewery should get knighthoods. Very very competent american styled IPA. A MUST TRY.
