3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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!

Bottle from Central City Liquor Store, Vancouver
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.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from BrewDog Glasgow. The most lively one for a long time - half of it went on the floor when I opened it. Muddy brown colour, big head, lot of sediment. Big hoppy aroma. Hop & fruit flavour. Sandy mouthfeel. Bit disappointed with this one.

In bottle at Craig’s. Pours a dark golden colour with a fair beige head. Aroma of tangerine’s with caramel, floral notes and alcohol. Similar flavours with moderate carbonation, light CO2 prickle and a foamy mouth-feel. Quite bitter to finish.
