A real hop-bomb! This beer is so hoppy that itís not balanced with the body anymore. Still a treat!

oops (203) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 15, 2013
Pours orange (at least in Alehouses lights) with a small white head. Aroma - citrus, hops and a little bit of sweet smell of high alcohol. Tastes salty and gives somehow the feel of a raspberry. Salty raspberry it is! Was expecting a little bit more bitterness, but anyway - good, oily, dry and hoppy beer!

SlackerMads (1439) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2013 Bottle. Hazy orange with a small off white head. Citrus, biscuit, light caramel, sweet tropical fruits. No alcohol showing and no rough bitterness. Medium body, oily texture, perhaps a bit thin, medium carbonation, medium sweet and bitter. Good balance, quite pleasant to drink, but nothing mindblowing. 20 minutes after finishing this I can still taste the hops, which is nice. I canít make up my mind about this one. Hop driven and pleasant, a bit thin, then again itís nice that itís not too heavy. Would drink again.

KyleCameron (21) - NEW ZEALAND - NOV 30, 2013
A big double IPA, 9% and 90IBUís. A little light on the nose for a double but a lovely pink colour and a serious palate. Well balanced with the malt and hop bitterness, very dry. I highly recommend this beer to anyone wanting to try a beer that is supremely well made in all aspects. The bitterness is lighter than you would think, but I expect thatís because of the big malt bill and not the lack of hops. Maybe could use another dry hop to bring up a bigger nose.

Beersiveknown (2777) - NORTHERN IRELAND - OCT 12, 2013
Bottle at home from brewdog online
big Seville orange, gooseberry, raspberry and a touch of lime sherbet on the nose. Hazy dark amber with offwhite lacing. Guava appears on warming. Very light bodied for abv. Fruity hops, pithy bitterness, lupulin burn at end. Brutal beast of a DIPA. Perhaps a few too many yeast esters/ rough notes in finish to be truly great.
