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

Bov (12360) - Bienne, - JUN 27, 2015
from Erzbierschof - hazy orange beer under a long lasting white foam; evident grapefruity hoppiness with notes of oranges and tangerines; full-bodied, assertive and very tasty; subtle carbonation and fairly bitter; very aromatic fruity hoppy finish where grapefruit dominates again; quite dry - very good one

The_Osprey (7414) - 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)

From Cervezalandia. In Teku glass. Watching Los Sorpano 5x02. Great mixture between soft citrus and tropical fruits, one of those brews that gives pity to end. But it is very drinkable!

romanstep (416) - Warszawa, POLAND - NOV 25, 2016
W nosie intensywnie, bardzo owocowo, dominuje marakuja na zmianę ze słodkimi cytrusami, na drugim planie aromaty młodego lasu sosnowego. Barwa jasnego złota, średnie zmętnienie, piana nie za wysoka, ale gęsta o drobnych ziarnach. W smaku poezja, bardzo soczyste i owocowe, marakuja, grapefruit, ananas, brzoskwinia, wręcz sałatka z tropikalnych owocw, w tle jakby lekkie nuty saisonowe. Goryczka średnia, grapefruitowa, wyraźna i krtka. Tak powinna smakować IPA, klasa, szacun, good job. Butelka do 04/2017
