Surly Todd The Axeman
Tomorrow at the Portland store and Wednesday at the Gorham store we will get a release of Surly Brewing's Todd The Axeman IPA. This is only the second release in Maine of this beer, and the first since June when it sold out in just a couple days. Currently the 8th rated IPA in the world on Ratebeer where it has a perfect 100/100 score, it also has a 4.46/5 on Beer Advocate and a 4.3/5 on Untappd. Surly is brewed in Minnesota, this batch was brewed at their brewery and shipped directly to Maine to be as fresh as possible and it arrived in the State of Maine today. Double dry-hopping with Citra and Mosaic hops creates intense tropical fruit and citrus aromas. Brewed with Golden Promise malt and just a hint of haze, this beer finishes rich and dry and is 7.2% abv. Not quite a West Coast IPA, not quite a NE IPA. It was first brewed in collaboration with Amager Brewery in Denmark.
