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: Marris Otter, Crystal Malt Hops: Simcoe, Chinook, Nelson Sauvin, Centennial Twist: Loads of late hops and bucket-loads of dry hops

Vrij weinig maar mooi schuim en goede kleur. Geur is typisch IPA en smaak ook, lekker dus!

HerrBierkoenig (105) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 21, 2014
From tap. Pours clear intensive dark red-amber liquid, big white to tan head. Aroma: intensive hoppy, litchi, american hops, resin, Taste: light body, heavy bitter, light sour, hops, light sweet, Palate: average to lively carbonation, long bitter aftertaste, Overall: very good, aromatic, bitter amber ale, only perhaps... would expect more in taste.

jan23778 (73) - SPAIN - APR 20, 2014
Nice clear red colour that has a nice white foam but disappears fairly quickly. Aromas of loads of hops, fruity and slightly tropical. Pineapple jumps out from the aromas and other tropical fruits follow. Smooth taste, just a hint of bitterness followed by some fruit sweetness then a little malt sweetness. Lovely

TXBadger (115) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 19, 2014
On the nose I get the floral notes of the hops, some pine as well. Palate, has the feel of a typical amber, pretty smooth, some caramel malt but more hoppy than most reds. Overall, a great example of the style.

martjoobolut (366) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 17, 2014
0,33L bottle, BB 16.08.2014. Pours slightly hazy red copper with off white head. The head stays for a moment. Aroma is fruity, acidic, malt, slight diacetyl.Taste is sour, fruits, berries, grapefruit bitterness, but also some diacetyl. Overall: ok, but nothing special.

Drank with Rik 17/4/2014. Brown amber color. Smells really nice, hoppy. Taste also begins this way but finishes watery, it lacks depth.

EdwinLitzau (241) - NETHERLANDS - APR 11, 2014
Bruine kleur (amber?), troebel, amper schuim , ruikt naar wijn, metalig en hoppig. Smaak bevalt me niet. Niet zoet, niet fris, weinig bitter. Niet mijn ding.
