COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
English: For quite some time the Amager crew has been discussing this question: which person is the most rocknroll in the whole craft beer world - is it Barnaby Struve of Three Floyds or is it Todd Haug of Surly Brewing? In the end it wasnt really all that difficult to decide since only Todd has played for Laura Dern in a David Lynch movie (yeah, Nicolas Cage was in that same movie, but since when did he count?) AND Todd plays the guitar in both a speed metal band and a stoner band. Add to that that Todd and his wife Linda are some of the nicest people to hang out with. So Todd, heres to you: "Todd - The Axe Man" - a potent IPA loaded with fresh American aroma hops on a base of rich Golden Promise malt, Surlys signature malt. Raise a glass to Todd, world class brewer - and master of the axe! Bonus facts about Todd: yes, he DID actually have a perm in his younger days (his wife confirms) and he does indeed love cats an awful lot.

Ingredienser: Vand. Malt: Golden Promise. Humle: Herkules, Citra, Mosaic. Gr: US-ale

Cudowny, świeży, mocny aromat owocw cytrusowych i tropikalnych. Rewelacja! Złota barwa, przejrzyste, ładna, średniopęcherzykowa warstwa piany. Smak: też rewelacja, mega świeże, orzeźwiające,pełne cytrusw i owocw tropikalnych, takich bardzo świeżych i słodkich, zerwanych prosto z drzewa. Ani śladu karmelu czy też landrynek, słodycz bardzo lekka, owocowa, rześka. W kontrze do niej super goryczka, średnia w kierunku silnej, cytrusowa,lekko żywiczna, w sam raz. Balans idealny, świetna gra chmieli: Citra- cytrusy, Mosaic- owoce tropikalne i Herkules- sosnowa żywica. Wysycenie wysokie, goryczka chwilę zalega. Jest słodsze i mniej gorzkie od innych piw z Amagera, ktre miałem przyjemność pić Pijalność na niesamowicie wysokim poziomie, piwo przepyszne. Chciałem być surowy, ale to piwo jest za dobre. Kolejne doskonała produkcja od Mistrzw z Amagera, tu oczywiście przy wspłpracy z Surly Todd. A już jutro Red Hetman :))

Cudowne IPA. Piana średnio wysoka, gęsta, zostawia obwolutę wokł kieliszka. W aromacie mango, pomarańcza, ananas, grejpfrut. W smaku soczyste, grejpfrutowo-pomarańczowe. Goryczka umiarkowana, krtka, bardzo przyjemna. Wysycenie na średnim poziomie. Bardzo lekkie. Świetne.

johndoughty (5306) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2017
Bottle. Slightly cloudy yellow appearance. Lovely fruity aroma which prepares you for a well balanced explosion of fruit and hops. Exciting but so easy to drink. Excellent.

The_Osprey (7731) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2017
February 2017 - Bottle share at CBC Islington for the Matteo Farewell tasting, as Amager Todd - The Axe Man, collab with Surly. Thanks to Dave for this one. Golden yellow, translucent with a foamy dense white head. Aroma is lemongrass and elderflower. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is quite restrained for the ABV, straw with light sugary malts, overlayed with lemongrass and elderflower. Pretty good. (3.7)
