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.

Encountered in the Ship and Castle in Aberystwyth. Up to this point we had been supping Erdinger and freedom brewerys Ubu and Wild Goose like they were going out of fashion, setting the tone to be very much a Teutonic/pint with assorted hedge cuttings within type affair. Craving something to cut through the cream like malty wheat-fest of proceedings thus far, I clocked the unassuming Dead Pony Club snuggled between some radioactive looking VK and San Miguel. Up to now, I have been partly terrified of Brewdogs offerings. With a penchant for paint blistering abvs and a most unfortunate first contact in a room temperature bottle of Punk IPA during my undergrad days, I had tended to steer towards my beloved European offerings and anything Wychwood could throw in the public domain. More fool me. On a gamble and a desperate need for hops, I took the plunge and opted for the Celt. And my word what a win. At a extremely suppable 3.8, this hop hand grenade immediately threw citrus, pine and the essence of sheer vibrance in my hooter, demanding an immediate and very un-connoisseur like gulp. On the palette Dead Pony Club continues the citric theme with an incredibly grapefruity bittersweet taste, the hop elements immediately forthright with a smooth transition to an dry finish, practically begging another sip. The body is difficult to comment as this superseded an erdinger, understandably the pint of liquid weetabix still dominating the mouth feel palette. Overall? As you can probably gather this wee Beastie of a bottle did not last long, a superbly refreshing beer, the bittersweet flavour profile perfectly suited for either a sumer scorcher refresher or a low abv counter-foil to creamy curries. A winner in my books, happy supping!

33 cl. bottle. Slightly hazy orange/amber coloured with a thin beige head. Aroma is very pleasant: tropical fruits, grapefruit, peach and some honey. Taste is mostly bitter but somewhat neutral (because of the watery mouthfeel), nice flavour though. Body is light-to-medium, texture is oily-to-creamy, carbonation is average, finish is dry and bitter. Overtime, however, it becomes a bit sticky on the palate. This is a nice sessionable beer.

Dzidrs, zeltainas krāsas alus. Mazas putas, nenoturīgas. Aromāts patīkams, citrusīgi apiņi, taču kā darvas karote - gumijotā apiņu smara un gara. Tāds viegls Pale alus, ar vidēju ķermeni. Tīri tāds vasarīgs padzēriens, ja tik nebūtu tā gumijas gara. Bet tā tāda subjektīvā garas sajūta.

The hops seem a little resiny at first, but turn in to tropical fruit flavor soon enough. It seems a little too bitter for a session IPA, which I expect to be more refreshing than bitter.

blariacum (45) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - APR 15, 2017
Tap en flesje. Sterke smaak en langaanhoudende afdronk. Beetje onbestemd van kleur, maar de smaak telt. Perfecte IPA. Gedronken paar jaar terug op tap bij Vierdaagsefeesten Nijmegen (en toen zelfs 5 sterren gegeven). Later ook nog op fles.
