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.

i liked the color. Unfortunately for me the "massive citrus" smelled more like Durian....

Orange golden colour with a big but quickly fading head of foam. Full nose of fruits and pine. Lychee is prominent, but also other 'light' fruits like tangerine and peach are present. Very fruity taste as well, with the same kinds of fruit. Lemon and grapefruit add some bitter and sour here. Taste is a wee bit watery, but that's no problem with a light session beer like this. Taste is refreshing. Not a lot of carbonation, so it all goes down pretty smoothly.

Very refreshing IPA, a typical summer beer, but for now also a very good ale.

This I my usual 'go to beer' as it's such an easy beer to drink and to keep on drinking.

In the same mould as Brewdog's flagship Punk IPA.
A well rounded hoppy west coast IPA.

But where Dead Pony comes into it's own is it's lighter, hoppier, and ultimately more refreshing.
