Ölbeat 107: Amager/Surly Todd - The Axe Man

Brewery: Amager (in Danish) / Surly Brewing
Country: Denmark
Style: India Pale Ale
Abv: 6,5 %

What about the beer?
Colour is cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma has orange, lemon and a flowery hop note. Taste lifts off with sharp fruity bitter bite. Fresh bitter grapefruit with a sweet orange twist takes over. Towards the end sweet-sour citrus fruits and piny dry get in front, some tartness shows up, too. Aftertaste has strong fruity bitterness and light dryness with long-lasting warm feeling.

Delicious citrus-packed India Pale Ale with nice hoppy and growing flavours: it starts biting bitter & fruity, goes through grapefruit-orange domination and ends heavily bitter. Excellent way to show respect to a living brewer legend, Todd Haug from Surly Brewing.


Since the brew was an act of homage from Amager we'll continue on that line with the matching rhythms. Todd Haug has played and still plays guitar in this thrash metal band since 1984. This song is one from the band's early years.

From the 1988 EP The Madness Begins, the song was written by Powermad.
