COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
English: For quite some time the Amager crew has been discussing this question: which person is the most rock’n’roll 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 wasn’t 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, here’s to you: "Todd - The Axe Man" - a potent IPA loaded with fresh American aroma hops on a base of rich Golden Promise malt, Surly’s 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. Gær: US-ale

On tap at Fakin Craft bar, Zagreb. Mead, pine and hop aroma. Sweet and hop bitter taste. Interesting.

Hrc_Cro (525) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 24, 2017
0.3l draught. Misty orange color with white head. Aroma of malt, tropical fruit, and hops. Taste is sweet and bitter. Don’t know what all the hype is about.

Marko (5597) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 22, 2017
On tap at Fakin, Zagreb. Misty golden-amber body, big white head, medium retention. Multivitamin juice fruitiness, backed with some clean maltiness and dry mild herbal notes. Oh yeah, the taste continues that way, tropical and peachy fruit, dank herbal touches, big herbal bitterness and a mild but noticeable malty backbone (perhaps a vague brown sugar touch taste wise but most definitely not sweetness-wise) to bring that all together. Quite drinkable too. The aftertaste is remarkably soft after all that bitterness in the finish. Just slightly flatter than I hoped it would be, but those are nuances. Amager, you rule!

3.7
Echon (535) - Århus, DENMARK - JUN 19, 2017
Hazy pale straw. Lots of citrusy hops, but also some grape notes. Low sweetness, and a highly bitter finish. Medium body. Overall, a very good IPA. Refreshing and smooth beer with hops aplenty, but there is very little malt to be found.

3.6
kaserov (680) - Oviedo, SPAIN - JUN 19, 2017
UPDATED: JUN 20, 2017 Color amarillo, ligeramente turbio, con capa de espuma blanca de dos dedos de grosor (poca retención). Más turbio al final, repleto de sedimento, casi recuerda a una NEIPA. Carbonatación media. Textura oleosa. Aroma a cítricos, fruta tropical, cereal, con suaves notas ácidas. Sabor pleno, frutal (cítricos y melocotón, así como fruta tropical), con base de grano perceptible. Amargor final medio. Seca. Amargor in crescendo en postgusto, aunque sin llegar a límites que no deben sobrepasarse. Rica. Mejora si se deja reposar un rato.

mmmeinike (153) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 16, 2017
Hazy orange golden with a white head. Citrus, fruity, malty and spicy aroma. Taste of pinne, grass, lemon and lime.

4.1
Alusmamuts (1903) - LATVIA - JUN 6, 2017
Light amber with medium white head. Mild hops aroma. Strong but mild bitterness with remarkable fruity sweetsourness and fruity notes. Lasting bitterness in the aftertaste.

3.9
copestx (227) - Vesterbro, DENMARK - MAY 24, 2017
Pours a slightly cloudy golden with a small white head. Aroma is tropical fruit and citrus hops. Taste is sweet grapefruit/guava/citrus with some spice and caramel malt. Medium-bodied, medium carbonation, slightly oily mouthfeel with some juice to boot! One of Amager’s best IPAs, top 3-4 in any case!

3.5
ogivlado (7764) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 18, 2017
Bottled 500ml. -at Pivoteka Zagreb. Unclear golden coloured, medium sized white head, citrusy hoppy nose. Moderate malty, citrusy/grapefruity hoppy, light herbal and discreet piney notes with pleasant bitter hoppy finish. Nice one.

guitartown (186) - SPAIN - MAY 14, 2017
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2017 Pinta (s) @ Malte - Coruña. Delicada y untuosa, seda para el paladar. Camarero!
