3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
from la Mise en Bière</> - pours a hazy reddish-orange beer with a moderate foam left; blueberries appear evident in front of a fair resiney and flowery hoppiness; full-bodied, a subtle yet fair carbonation, some sweetness and a late fruity sourness; a long resiney hoppy bitterness develops in the finish where the blueberries are more discrete

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
330ml bottle (Pudel, Tallinn)
Horrible brewdog aroma, stinky pungent rat cage that hasn’t been cleaned since their latest piss-fight. Looked better, rich red, if a bit flat. Taste is a horror. Grassy hops, bitter, probably poisonous red berries. Does get less horrible after a few sips, but it’s still that horrible brewdog sticky sweet malt pale ale taste which I detest. Crystal malts? Soapy finish, a bit acidic. Quite horrible as a beer, no thank you.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Brewdog, Shoreditch, Saturday 26th October 2013 Pours copper in colour to my eyes, but quite dark in here, good clarity with a snall white head. Robust malty and hoppy beer sweet but then a light almost casual dryness, like it is unintended. Full flavoured in mouth fruity sourness, alcohol sits quite heavily. A7 A4 T7 P3 Ov14 3.5

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330 ml bottle. #237. BB 09/10/14. Kahdet Kasvot, Tampere, Finland.
Clear amber colour with a small white head.
Strange hoppy aroma... I can't say what it is... maybe some exotic fruits... and mild bitterness. Not bad at all. The flavour is... well... interesting... Not necessarily very tasty. Moderate bitterness and some... caramel maltiness and something I really can't put my finger on... Mild sweetness there too. 8.2% is very well hidden. After all I won't need another one...

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Reddish amber capped with white. Good stewed ganja and celery-like hop aroma with grapefruit, mandarin and calamine back notes; also honeyed biscuit. Smooth and malt slick mouthfeel; clean cut brittle hop suggesting curry leaf, dried flowers, cannabis and subcontinental spices plus the usual soft tropical explosions. Not picking up much if any blueberry which is a relief, or melds so seamlessly with the hop profile it’s barely noticeable. Either way, beautiful IPA.
