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.

Good one - lovely honeyed caramel citrus aroma mirrored on palate - a different spin on the usual - leans more to Anerica than England which is great for me being an APA fan. Interesting enough to make me want to sip more. Surprise package.

UPDATED: DEC 16, 2012 Bottle, 330ml and also tap at Alehouse Project. Great beer, complex. Aromas of caramel, cherries, and a hint of pine. Taste is sweet, with balancing bitterness throughout, and very long length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Amber, with a frothy white head.

Brodies_Best (233) - 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!

UPDATED: APR 15, 2009 Blooby beautiful... better from the cask than from the bottle though. Looks magnificent... that perfect red-brown colour.... and that aroma!! just like a field full of hops. Im sorry... this is probably the best non-belgian beer ive had. Im too excited to describe it.

Bottle from Brewdog website. A cloudy orange coloured beer with zesty juicy fruit and orange marmalade flavours with a sweet floral hoppy finish.

TimE (3086) - Tokyo, JAPAN - OCT 6, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2005 A dark amber color that has a thick white head full of PNW hops, full bodied and citrusy with a big bitter finish. Kinda of what I expected, but oh so well executed.

wetherel (1836) - Encinitas, California, USA - JUL 7, 2007
On tap at Copa in Machida, Japan. Burnt orange color. Nice 2-finger head, that dies slowly. Well done IPA: balanced sweetness and bitterness, leaning toward more hops as an IPA should. Nice grassy hoppy aroma and flavor. Great beer, probably a great session beer.

bluebetty (1019) - AUSTRALIA - APR 7, 2010
Bottle. Pours a hazy earthy brown colour. Beige head with some lacing. Great aromas of sweet malt, caramel and toffee offset and balanced by citrus (grapefruit & lemon) and resiny / graasy hop aromas. Flavours pretty much follow the aromas though with more sweet malt and caramel to offset the hop bitterness. Quite bitter finish. Mouthfeel is quite full and sweet. Great beer and very much looking forward to the others I have waiting in the fridge.
