Brewing great beer can demand great sacrifice. Blood, sweat, and skin burns were the ingredients that went into this DIPA from Ebeltoft Gårdbryggeri.
Brewer Ben Howe had a couple of unfortunate events happening to him which led to the name, and even though I think it speaks for itself, here’s a brief version of the story. As an open-minded American, Howe decided that he wanted to do what all Danes seem to do: take the bicycle. However, having consumed a considerable amount of beer was a factor he hadn’t taken into account when he mounted the iron horse.
It all ended with an asphaltic visit, and as if that wasn’t enough suffering, poor Howe managed to burn his hand whilst brewing the last batch. So, for Ben’s sake, you better enjoy 'Burnt Hand Bike Crasher'
Pours murky light golden with a small white head. Aroma is citrus, tropical fruits, a hint of pine, and hoppy notes. Taste is citrus, ripe fruits, light malty caramel, and with a hoppy, strong, bitter finish. Floral, depth and with a malty profile. Medium body, soft carbonation.
