Todd The Axe Man is an American IPA collaboratively brewed Surly Brewing Co. and Danish brewery Amager Bryghus. For the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in an IPA glass from a can.
The IPA pours a cloudy ruddy orange and is topped by a thick cap of rocky ivory white foam that shows good retention. Following the reduction, fine patches of sticky lace cling to the sides and a soapy collar rounds the glass.
Aromatics wafts the nose with a sweet scent of ripe tropical and stone fruit.
A hop-forward palate leads off with a taste of pine and is followed by toasted bread. A juicy bite of grapefruit citrus that lingers through the finish and blended with juicy tropical fruit.
Its feel has a grainy texture with a medium body and a shade over moderate carbonation. Finishes slightly dry and astringent.
Its palate has plenty of bite but is also wonderfully balanced. A relatively high ABV is masked well. The feel is a little sharp with carbonation but it is very refreshing and easily quaffed. Todd The Axe Man is an absolutely wonderful IPA.
