Pours a golden orange with two fingers of white head. Aroma is orange and faint pineapple. Flavour is clean and hoppy, with slight malt on the mid palate and a pleasant bitter floral and hoppy finish. Pretty basic but tasty.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours amber with a receding head of a dark off-white head. that leaves good lace.
Aroma of hops and sweet fruitiness.
Taste is initially just roast, quite astringent/bitter, then it leaves a hoppy, dry aftertaste. Medium to light bodied. Quite a lot of fizziness in your tongue.
Overall a good beer, but I would prefer a wee bit of sweetness.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cl bottle. Colour is clearly amber with a yellowish small head. Medium body and average carbonation. The smell is typically IPA, so hoppy, citrusy and fruity. Taste is hoppy as well, but the malt is noticeable. Refreshing, easy to drink, and pleasant overall. Very nice.

2.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
I saw this beer the other night at Total Wine & More. It was new, so I grabbed a single bottle. I poured it, and it smells incredible. It smells like a barleywine. But then I took a sip, and almost spit it out. It has a very thin mouthfeel, and a weird metallic flavor. I am drinking this ice cold, so maybe that has something to do with it... but I am not impressed by this beer whatsoever. I expect more from BrewDog. Hopefully, as this heats up, more flavors will begin to show up... but ice cold, I will be lucky to finish the entire bottle.

330ml bottle - Amber colour. Wonderful hop aroma, fruity, with sharp grapefruit and a hint of passion fruit. Fairly good caramel flavour bit of citrus hops in there, but a bit of a let down overall.
