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

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 (370) - 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

The best new IPA Ive tried in the past few years. It was a homerun for me.

adasko (2038) - Poznan, POLAND - OCT 7, 2016
Super hazy, yellow color. Nice but very non-persistant head. Aroma surprisingly is full of passionfruit. Some orange and mango in the back. Very fruity, juicy in the nose. Same in taste in the beginning. A lot of passionfruit, which even gives a feeling of sulfor. Then in the end it has some flower notes, more calm and polite. Its super dry all the way to the aftertaste where bitterness punches in the mouth. Medium body, very drinkable, even a bit refreshing, and still its so full of flavours. Awesome beer.
