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

0,5 flaske fra Meny Borups alle, København, på hytta en Mi2-mandag nov-17: uklar korngylden med ok skum. Ah, for en herlig og superforfriskende aroma og smak! Citrus galore, sammen med tropiske frukter og granskudd i en nydelig balansert maltkropp. Hyttelivet er dejligt!

UPDATED: OCT 15, 2017 Draft. Fruity aroma with mango, peach, soap. Moderate to slightly heavy bitter with apricot stone, lightly fruity. Not bad!

orbit (268) - Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - SEP 28, 2017
Tastes very much like a NEIPA/ wild beer and this is positive IMHO. Therefore it differentiates itself from many other random IPAs. But it's no instant classic.

Svesse (8832) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 11, 2017
(Bottle) Golden amber colour, slightly hazy, with big, frothy, white head. Fruity, hoppy nose with notes of citrus, grapefruit, apricots, tropical fruit, pine needles, honey and lychee. Malty, fruity, hoppy taste with citrus, grapefruit, pine needles, tropical fruit, apricots, a touch of ginger and a generous citric/piney bitterness in the finish. Medium body, quite dry. Fresh and tasty, with lots of citrus and tropical fruit from Citra and Mosaic and that solid bitterness from the Herkules hops. Solid and well made IPA (as expected from these guys). Very nice.

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2017 Good malt backbone. Quite hoppy for me. Aromas of mango and passionfruit. Hazy body. Lingering bitter finish quite comparable to kale.

Tangerine, lots of tropical fruit, little bit of peach. Hazy to cloudy yellow color with small sized white head. High fruitiness, mango, passion fruit, orange, elder, moderate bitterness, juicy as hell. Medium body, soft carbonation. //tap at Opatovina 2017

jinroh (2377) - ESTONIA - AUG 26, 2017
Pours hazy orange, just a bit of foam. Sort of clean hop nose, yeast mainly. Fresh meat? Taste has some sourish edge to it, quite nice and thirst quenching. Dry bitter finish, yeasty. Kind of easy tondrink.
