3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Brewdog bar Aberdeen. It pours hazy light brown with a foamy off white head and high carbonation. The nose is wood, orange, pineapple, mango, apricot and some grape. It’s medium bodied and the taste is wood, smokey, nut, orange and lemon rind, caramel, astringent and some sourness with a bitter-woody finish. I will have to re-rate this at some point because it has tasted a lot better on keg and cask previously.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home. This beer has become my standard PA since my local supermarket started selling them.
Pours amber red with little head.The aromas of american dryhop reaches the nose almost instantaneously.
Very grassy, citrusy nose. The carbonation is medium-high and the mouthfeel is delisiously dry. The malt-flavour is at a minimum. A faint caramel flavour balances the aromahop dominated taste.
A bit watery in the aftertate with a medium-low pleasent bitterness.
Very good in with a danish lunch (rugbrød med leverpostej, æg, pølse (godt med løg til det hele)) .

Bottle from Utobeer, London. Aroma has some hints of roasted malt, some tropical fruits and citrus. Pours a dark amber with a thick foam that leaves a lot of lacing. Taste is quite bitter on the onset and some roasted notes from the malt as it rolls over the tongue. Great mouthfeel, just right carbonation.

(bottled) I liked the propaganada on the bottle blurb; Vibrant hops (no shit, it is brewdog) but the types of malt used have an assertive personality, kinda cloying , which mixes cool with the hops. Very plesant.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The beer in the glass is beautiful amber-colored with a lot of medium, brown foam. Very hoppy, aromatic smell of american hops. Cascade and Amarillo ruled! The beer starts very hoppy-bitter, with the pleasant aroma of the amarillo and cascade! The aftertaste, is more aroma hoppy than bitter, drawn very short. The further course is hoppy aromatic with a slight bitterness and a good spice. Dry Finish!
