Notes / Commercial Description:
Formerly Dead Pony Club and Dead Pony

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. That's 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.

12 ounce can into pint glass, canned on 8/23/2017. Pours slightly hazy deep golden orange/amber color with a 1 finger fairly dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, mango, melon, berry, citrus peel/zest, light pepper/pine, caramel, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops and dark/bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, mango, melon, berry, citrus peel/zest, light pepper/pine, caramel, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light pine, citrus peel/zest, herbal, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, mango, melon, berry, citrus peel/zest, light pepper/pine, caramel, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops and dark/bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and no cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from lingering bitterness and carbonation. Medium-high carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy, and fairly crisp/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 3.8%. Overall this is a very nice session American pale ale. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical/earthy hops and dark/bready malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, and refreshing to drink, with the mellowly bitter/drying finish. Very flavorful and not watery for the ABV. Nice Citra, Simcoe, Mosaic showcase. Very juicy and fairly dank/earthy hop complexity; nice dark/bready malt backbone for the ABV, and minimal residual sweetness. Would like to revisit with a fresher can eventually, would likely be even better. A very enjoyable and well made offering. Very impressive considering the ABV.

Light amber with nice white foam. Amazing hoppy, citrus aroma. Gently bitter, long dry finish. Smooth, light and very drinkable.

Dull orange/amber body, with a slight haze within. Off-white head that started thin but stayed the distance.

Citrus nose with a malty biscuit aroma as the beer warmed.

The taste was also citrus in the fore with the malts arriving later: the hops re-asserting themselves towards the end of each sip.

I'm not a huge 'citrus' flavoured beer man but this had something extra to offer somehow.

Starts with a grassy hop aroma, pours a clear amber with a thin white head. Light bodied, with a little biscuit and caramel notes followed by a mild bitter finish. Easy drinking, not too complex, but that's not what you should be looking for in a session pale ale.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Arrives hazy and orange colored with a decent head that leaves shards of lacing

Smell: Fruit tones of pineapple and peach

Taste: Pineapple forward with peach undertones; the middle is moderately bitter and the finish is dry

Mouthfeel: Light body with moderate to high carbonation

Overall: Pretty surprised by the low scores here as on tap and fresh this is a nice session IPA
