After Amager's homage to Master Brewer, 'Surly' Todd Haug, comes Linda – The Axe Grinder, a tribute to his wife and brewing partner.
In the glass, this imposing Imperial IPA shows off an attractive red-amber body under a sudsy white head, releasing powerful caramel and toasted malt notes, with a piny, woody, orange-zesty backdrop.
This woody motif is echoed on the tongue, with a crisp berry dryness and more zesty, bitter orange, while the picture is completed by an honest hops bitterness that offsets a final brown sugar sweetness perfectly.
