4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2014 Pours clear amber with moderate head. Nose is pine, mango, tropical fruit, hops. Taste is pine and peppery spicy hops on the front, on the back end it smooths out a lot with mango and tropical fruit notes. Very smooth and creamy mouthfeel for an ipa. For my money the best IPA out there.

On tap, BrewDog Edinburgh. A fantastic IPA. Dark yellow/golden in colour, sweet pine and grapefruit aroma, taste is sweet, bitter, hoppy and delicious. A fantastically balanced beer.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2011 22oz bottle. Pours golden copper and a nice fluffy head. Amazing scent of mangoes and guava. I was ultimately disappointed with this beer, however, as the taste of this did not match the expectations provided by the aroma. There is a sweet bitterness here that I wish was featured a bit more, and there is definitely no "sting" that supposedly earned this beer its’ name.

Magnifique mousse assez durable. Absolument translucide (un point négatif pour moi, visuellement j’adore les bières opaques!). Très fuitée, assez complexe tout en restant fraiche. Il y a des notes agrumées mais aussi des notes moin acides, comme le cantaloup. Une amertûme bien balancée. Une bonne IPA, définitivement axée sur les houblons. Bravo!

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
I have had this beer more than a few times but never written a review. This one is based on a 22 0z. bottle. Poured a light golden amber with an ample two-finger head which dissapted into a white covering fairly quickly. Lacing was on the lighter side but lasted. Nose is a wonderful collection of orange and mango, some pine and floral hops. Taste starts with a some sweetness and citrus and then quickly folds into a pleasantly dry and mildly bitterness. There is some alcohol warming at the end as well. Feel is medium to light and oily. This is a very refreshing beer you must try - IF it’s fresh. Highly recommended and near the top of my favs.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2011 Pint from my pal Jess down at the Local 4th and broadway SD.. The pour is typical ballast point,,, a little lighter in shade than some others but enough murkiness to let me know there is something behind the veil. The aroma is powerful.. Its deep robust experienced hops.. and the first hit to the palate is that of an impecably constructed ipa, hops yes, powerful yes.. Pine, bitter hops, but the surprise is how smooth this thing is on the afterbite.. I think its neck and neck with the Alesmith, or even nose to nose.. Now thats a heavy weight fight worth ordering.. Well down ballast point.. Oh and by the way.. the coolest name for a beer.> EVER!!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Nice cloudy golden amber, about an inch of head settles to a half finger, pretty good lacing.
Aroma is full of fruit and citrus. Lots of mango, pineapple, apricots, hops, grapefruit, and little honey.
Taste is pretty close to the nose. Lots of mango and hop. It is sweet, tangy, and bitter all at once.
Mouth feel is pretty bright, lots of "zing" from the carbonation. Smooth going down with some hop bitterness and a little sweetness in the body.
