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

tradycyjnie udana spółka duńsko-amerykańska, Amager wie jak robić poważne ipa, bez kitu, bez fałszywych smaczków, wchłanialne z zachwytem: takie piwa śnią mi się po nocach, przyjemnie oczywiście.

Tap at Beerfox. Hazy orange, small white head. Aroma is very juicy and tropical, pineapple. Taste is creamy, juicy, very tropical, very fresh. Pineapple, spruce in taste. Crisp finish, bit scratchy. Medium bodied, average carbo. Well done IPA!

On tap at 7 West. Pours a near clear yellow gold with a white head that dissipates nearly completely. Aroma has a combination of citrus and pine with light grains backing. Flavor has a good amount of citrus with some grass and pine supporting.

Keg @ 7West, Duluth. Golden pour with a small head. Aroma has some candied orange peel. Some general dank green hoppiness. Nicely herbal flavor. Just a bit of pine. Some chewy honey cake underlying. A bit sweet. Medium body, soft carb.

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 (5753) - 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!

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.
