COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is an aggressive beer. You probably wonít like it. It is quite doubtful that you have the taste or sophistication to appreciate an ale of this quality and depth.

MMM now this is what I go for when I want something real strong and real good to go with dinner. One glass and I was instantly a fanboy. Donít even think about buying it, just buy it.

22 oz rocket. Pours a opaque, hazy, copper. Medium light tan head w/medium lacing. Nice & fragrant aroma with citrus, fresh pine present. Slightly yeasty & malty. Mouthfeel is nice and smooth with a crisp, bitter finish. A great beer. Though its 7.2% abv, no alcohol aroma. Very drinkable.

UPDATED: MAY 3, 2015 1/3 served in teku, Brewdog Notts. Taste of every dark thing that exists, coffee, carmel, whisky, cherry and so much more. perfectly balanced. Slight taste of alcohol, great appearance and great aroma. Really nice one!

One of the best beers I have ever had. Strong solid ale in both hops and malt. Not a unique flavor, just enough of it that you wonder why you donít demand it of all the ales you drink. As strong as it is the balance of hops and malt is very good.

This is a very nice fruity aroma. The taste of alcohol and hops were very apparent in this beer.

The white grapefruit flavor was overwhelming and honestly I couldnt taste anything else except for hoppy bitterness. The bottle claims sophistication but I sensed no such subtlety. I havent seen (tasted) an ale more undeserving of the 99th percentile.

Smells of citrus and hops. pours a dark amber color (slightly brownish) with a small tan head. Taste of fruit, but changes to a citrus flavor that leaves a bitter aftertaste. Multiple flavors. The palate isnít to thick. Overall a good buy, but not my favorite.

Bottle pour. Dark brown with tan head. Aroma is citrus hops, slight malt. Flavor is caramel, citrus, raisins. Very full bodied, slightly chewy, but still smooth.
