3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma: Grassy-ish pine, grapefruit, tropical fruit.
Taste: Grassy pine, grapefruit.
Mouth feel: Sessionable, crisp, high quaffable.
Overall: Plethora of hop aroma and taste without the bitterness. Amazing.
This and Ruth by Hair of the Dog are some of the finer session ales I’ve tasted to date.
Interesting that nelson sauvin hops are used - with after-the-fact knowledge of this, can discern faint goose berry aroma.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Red-amber colour with medium tan head. Aroma of fresh hops, flowers, herbs, citruses and some blackurrant. Very mature but still refreshing. Rusty bitterness and smoothe fruit notes in the taste. A great beer experience!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy, medium amber body with a good-sized, off-white, fully lasting head that covers the glass in lacing. Good start! Super fruity aroma that is all hops, for the most part grapefruit, but there might be some pine and resin there as well. Despite the hoppy aroma the taste is initially light sweet, that’s a nice touch! Then the finish comes, and it is of course aggressively BrewDog bitter™. A subtle sweet malty caramel flavour is followed and partially mixed with a firm grapefruit flavour. Medium body, soft carbonation, quite dry feel. It’s a bit like a more complex, more interesting, beefed-up version of the BrewDog Trashy Blonde. Another good one from the f-ing doctors!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Interesting beer, comes across like an IPA up front but without the bitter finish. Has almost no aftertaste. Interesting, but not amazing. Looks great, nice body and decent woodsy pine aroma.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled at Texas Beerfest. Pours a cloudy amber with a thick creamy beige head that lasts awhile leaving sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is strong floral and grapefruit. Medium mouthfeel with a bitter hop and light malt with a nice lingering dry finish. A very good amber from Brewdog.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle; pour is naturally, golden amber, with a nice fluffy beige head that does retain well. This one does indeed have bucketloads of dry hops present on the nose, as well as the tongue ; the hops are piney and slightly astringent - the malts are slightly sweet, but give way to the bitterness of the hop profile. The body is on the light side, and that is quite alright. This is a decent drinker for me, at least.
