Bottle. This beer is a hazy brown with a small head. There is some scotch flavor up front that evolves into a chewy finish. Interesting and nice to try, but not one of my favorites.

UPDATED: SEP 30, 2012 Bottle from a boutique in Arras, France. Pours a lovely clear blood red with a small beige head. Aroma has some really nice pine to it, with inviting caramalts. Flavour is sweet but balanced by the sharp, spicy hops that really shine. Well balanced, and everything shines on its own. Feels very light and almost watery, but in a good way. I could drink this a lot.

On tap. Amber/brown body beige head. Aroma of grapefruit and herbs with some caramelly sweetness and a hint of chocolate. Lots of caramel, a tiny chocolate, herbs and citruses. Very complex, and also very refreshing. My personal favourite from Brewdog.

Slightly beige, slightly spongy foam from caramel, caramel and citrus aroma and resinous hop waving to us. The body of the beer is lighter than expected to hop the waves traveled digs caramel malt taste with a sense of the happier scenes.

Bell’aspetto ambrato/ramato con una schiuma beige poco persistente.
Naso intenso, persistente e complesso con note di passion fruit, pompelmo, cedro, resina....
Secca, corpo snello, abbastanza amara, pulita e persistente....finale lungo che rimanda ai luppoli aromatici usati per brassarla....

33cl bottle. As usual filtered, red amber liquid with small dirty white head. Nose ; strong hop notes of grapefruit and pine. Zest. Some little tart with delicate cherry. Sip ; Low carbonation, low density with oily texture. Moderately sweet bread feeling with strong but well contained hop burst. It develops a fine bitterness, like a grapefruit but still not overwhelming like it is with IPAs. The beer is refreshing and tasty. Pity it’s that expensive abroad.

Red-orange amber, decent head. Sticky, hoppy nose with candi malt. Flavor is similarly juiced with candi malt, some bubblegum, and candied pineapple. Skunked candy finish.

Hazy red appearance, citrusy hop nose. Mildly hoppy, bitter West Coast IPA hop taste which fades into a roasty,malty sweet red ale finish. Mild carbonation pours into a two finger foam head.
