COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Also known as Dead Pony Club.

Bottle and keg: Filtered

Ingredients: Spring Blend, Cara and Crystal Malts; Simcoe, Citra and HBC hops.

This Californian Pale Ale packs a huge hoppy punch. A 21st century low amplitude, high voltage hop hit. Some people say slow is good. We believe fast is better. Being shot from a Hoppy Howitzer beats the hell out of trotting round a submissive paddock. Thats why the internal combustion engine got mounted onto two wheels. Screw down the throttle and listen for that dull banshee howl floating back from those malted mufflers. Drink fast, live fast, sleep late and rip it up down empty streets. This pale ale is chopped, tuned and ready to roll. Fuel up and hold tight, this little thoroughbred kicks like a mule. Perfect for drinking by the bottle, case or even keg.

330ml bottle. Pours clear copper with medium head that disappears pretty quickly. Great fruity aroma with hints of peach and mango. Not quite as rich and complex in flavour but still lovely. Light sweetness and fruit with some mild citrus hops. Some bitterness, but perhaps not quite enough to balance it out perfectly, leaving it a little short at the end. Minor faults, good beer. I could easily drink a lot of this.

Mega lekkie i sesyjne, dość płaskie, w aromacie nowofalowe chmiele z podbudową słodową, w smaku chmielowe, cytrusowe, nieco wodniste.

heavy (2817) - Split, CROATIA - MAY 29, 2017
Oct. 16. A 0.33 l bottle. It poured a hazy orange body with a smaller head. Decent aroma of sweetish tropical fruits, just a bit on overripe side. Bitter flavor, very light, but pleasant for a sassy style it is. Thin bodied with shorter, medium-bitter finish. Also quite chalky and earthy (clay). Well, fine, Simcoe was most beneficial among hops used, does well on a hot summer day.

jerohen (2268) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - MAY 26, 2017
Bottled. Orange colored, traces of yeast, medium head. Beautiful hoppy nose, tropical fruit. Pleasant hoppy and fruity flavor, Simcoe character showing, certainly not overly bitter. Impressive Session IPA.

roldano (131) - - MAY 23, 2017
Espuma blanquecina con tonos beige que permanece como una fina capa, color mbar con ligera transparencia y sin apenas carbonatacin brotando, aroma muy rico en nariz con notas de frutos dulces y exticos como el mango, sabor suave dado su baja graduacin pero muy sabroso que mezcla notas dulces de frutos y final ligeramente amargo y permanente.

Evilman (222) - Taverny, FRANCE - MAY 22, 2017
Brewdog beers are quite good, their IPAs are great so I chose this one without a single doubt about how Id feel about it. Im much more oriented toward strong beers but despite its quite low abv, this one had a pretty remarkable taste and a very sweet aroma. Clearly what you can expect from a good IPA, punchy hops, just a little bit of bitterness and a rather simple yet enjoyable taste in mouth. I cant say thats one beer Id choose among others in the future, but definitely one I enjoyed. APPROVED BY TAVERNYS BLACK METAL CREW!
