COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
One Trick Pony Series
So much beer with so little flavour. Conntemplating the blue pill? Wait! A new pony with a kick-ass facial horn. Power to neutralise poison from the faceless industrial brewing complex. No more green bottles, just green hops. No virgins needed to tame this. May contain traces of Alicorn.

Sticky syrup aroma. Such a smooth taste. Watermelon notes. So light on the palate. One of my favorites.

Bottled at Queens Head, Stockholm. Clear amber, creamy head. Rich aroma of pear, ripe mango, pine and grapefruit. Mid sweet with well sized soothing, super rounded caramellly body. Concentrated flavour of tangerine peels, grapefruit and caramel. Long bitter finish. Simply remarkable, what an awesome modern ale?

UPDATED: APR 14, 2013 Bottle at Cookie. Hoppy with good balance. Aromas of caramel, flowers, grain and liquorice. Taste is sweet and bitter with long length. Palate is velvety and medium-bodied. Amber with a frothy head.

Great floral nose and rich amber colour at first. Not bitter, but stacks of well structured hops and lingers on the palate nicely

Bottle from Plonk. Bright, clear orange/amber, immediate aroma was musk lollies which quickly disappeared, passionfruit, pine, lychee, mango, backed up by solid malt finish. Very special.

Epic.... Is there a bad beer?? NO. Another great take on an IPA, although I probably prefer the Armageddon. Nice amber colour, nice aroma and tastes of pine, citrus and caramels. Of course a great aftertaste on the palate. Epic beer? Yes.

4.1
HopRedHead (397) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 18, 2013
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours dark orange with a short, white head. Tropical fruit and floral aroma with a nice resiny spine. Taste is perfect: sweet caramel malt, pear and peach fruitiness with a nice passionfruit/grapefruit sour sweetness, dark resiny taste followed by a nice lingering bitterness. Awesome drop, prefer the armageddon though.
