COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This brew bursts with hop character while still achieving a sublime balance due to a firm, robust malt backbone. It is a cross between an English-style and American-style India Pale Ale that is full-bodied and refreshing all at once.

Bottle, Brewdog.com shop. Dark orange pour with a biiig sullied white chef’s hat of a head. Aroma was spice, yeast, caramel malts, oak and tropical fruits. Slickish mouthfeel. Peppery fruit, more yeast and earthy hop in the flavour. Lingering bitter finish. Pretty decent stuff.

maekchu (2283) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUN 2, 2012
Bottle (gift from Neko-chan). Very strong and pleasant hop, thick pine notes, and yeast in the nose. Cloudy orange-amber with a full one-inch rocky head. Very much hop dominant but with a strong malt backbone. Great smooth hoppy aftertaste. Medium-full body, thick and satisfying. Tastes like it’s stronger than 6%. Good stuff.

eczematic (1320) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - MAY 25, 2012
not bad, nice mixture of earthy and fruity hops, plenty of biscuitty malt and english yeast esters. loose irregular and organic looking head over a murky copper beer. a bit homebrewy - nice components but a bit muddy and unclear in the palate.

Brodies_Best (257) - Auckland Central, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 1, 2012
330 ml bottle 6%. Pours slighly cloudy golden with decent cream coloured head. Good lacing. Aroma of pinenuts, alcohol, floral hops, malt and faint yeast and dust. Full flavour, crisp, fruity which turns bitter. Excellent balance and pleasant acidity. Very easy to drink and goes well with Chinese chicken fried rice. Well done!

Hazy amber color; big head. Nice aroma, caramelly and a bit hoppy. The mouthfeel is quite dry; caramel flavor, with strong bitterness, not impressive though; a bit dusty.
