COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
5am Saint is The Holy Grail of red ales. We live in a world of disposable deities. Someone, somehow has managed to press that big, flashing moronic override button and we’re hard wired straight into the pockets of false idols trying to make a quick buck. Sadly, for a lot of people the same mentality applies to beer. But who’s to know what’s worth worshiping when monolithic advertising budgets have you sucked down the rabbit hole in the blink of an eye? At BrewDog we are on a mission to open as many people’s eyes as possible. Cast away any aspersions and let the crook of BrewDog be your guide in a whirlwind of conformity and mediocrity. Once this ruby liquid forms a foamy halo around your glass, you’ll never want to look back.
Malts: Maris Otter, Caramalt, Munich Malt, Crystal and Dark Crystal Malts
Hops:Cascade, Amarillo, Nelson Sauvin, Simcoe, Ahtanum, Centennial
Twist: Loads of late hops and bucket-loads of dry hops

peponi (1317) - Mainz, GERMANY - JUL 26, 2013
Aroma: hoppy (resin and light citrus). Appearance: clear amber color, no head. Taste: nice (resin & pine) bitterness, dry. Palate: low carbonation, medium body, nice long bitter finish. Overall: The icon of the style, not outstanding and not disappointing, very nice bitterness, but only one-dimensional.

Monchito_IPA (185) - SPAIN - JUL 26, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2013 Precioso ámbar oscuro. Espuma perfecta, persistente. Con mucho cuerpo a pesar de no tener muchos grados. Intenso aroma frutal y floral con notas cítricas pero sin ser una explosión de lúpulo. Sabor intenso, amargo, muy equilibrado con el dulce de la malta. Por decir algo negativa quizás demasiado carbonatada.

Jorn69 (2551) - Ängelholm, SWEDEN - JUL 25, 2013
@ Röhällavägen. Flaska från Kvickly, Helsingör (15 DKK). Bärnstensfärgad med en rejält humlig doft av tallbarr, citrus, fläder och exotiska frukter. Mycket amerikanskt humle i smaken. Medelfyllig med bra beska.

DrStrangelove (75) - ITALY - JUL 20, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2013 Bottle. Dark amber with reddish reflections and a small, frothy, mostly to fully diminishig off-white head. Aroma is fruity, caramel, peach, orange, grapefruit. Flavor is heavy sweet and light bitter. Dry, hoppy, slightly bitter finish. Aftertaste is kinda waterish. Not very exciting.

McTapps (6396) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - JUL 20, 2013
Bottle. Clear red colour with low steady head and medium body. Nose of aromatic hops and citrus. Taste of intense but mild aromatic hops, light malt, citrus, spruce and grass. Very dry and medium bitter finish. It was as good as expected. Enjoyed it a lot. Maybe it was a little bit too week and thin in character and body.

MichaelAwesome (6342) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUL 20, 2013
Once again BrewDog put up big numbers here. Citrus hoppy nose with an interesting clear amber look. Bit thin on the tongue. Slightly bitter end. From start to end full of aromas - reminded me my first London Pride. Very good one for sure.

Holmen1 (4618) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUL 17, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2014 Flaske fra polet: Brewdogs ordgyterier har en tendens til å være tøvprat, og mye av sorten. Det som er interessant er at de kjører på med humle: "Simcoe, Chinook, Nelson Sauvin, Centennial. Twist: Loads of late hops and bucket-loads of dry hops", og det gjør virkelig noe for aromaen. Jeg blir allikevel litt skuffet etter de første munnfullene, den er god men har ingen umiddelbar staying power. Skulle vært interessant å prøve denne fra fat. Iconoclastic, my foot. Fra fat på Kooperstiven Nordsiden, Hønefoss: vi kommer rett fra Hønefossrevyen og heldigvis er der plass ved bardisken. Mye fint fatøl å velge i, og denne var en av de vi hadde. God aroma av citrus, blomster og brent sukker. Kraftig smak med middels munnfylde og bitterhet, en fruktig amber ale med noe brent karamell/knekk mot slutten. Kort skum.

A red colored ale. The taste is balanced though is a BrewDog beer so is easy to drink.

Bosbouw (2535) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - JUL 12, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2013 Mooie roodbruine kleur. Goede maar weinig schuim. Ruikt, kruiden, hop en iets honing. Smaakt ligt en fris. Lekkere hop tonen. Lekker tussendoor bier.
