3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brownish/orange with a large white head. A lot of malt in both the aroma and taste, not that hoppy. I think that the bottle was on the old side. Still quite good but not that fresh anymore.

330 ml bottle. Finland.
Hazy amber colour with small white head.
Mild fruity/berry hoppy aroma with some alcohol.
Cranberries, berry hoppy and malty flavour.
Quite mediocre IPA for BrewDog. I want my €12 back.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle @ Kaunis Kampela, Helsinki
Pours dark orange with a tiny head. Aroma is woody and has hints of oak. Taste is malty with woody and oaky notes and hints of vanilla. Smooth, salty finish. Not your typical IPA, but a nice beer nevertheless.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
dark amber and slightly hazy.
smells mainly of sweet malt, hints of raisin and less so hints of hops
tastes like hop stems, w/ a kind of astringent bitterness
has huge hop finish. by the end i was picking up oak in the flavour and finish. this is a pretty good beer. not amazing but lots better than many. i certainly don’t think it’s worth £9 a bottle!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Last of my 3 bottles. This one has been in my possession over a year. ($25 per bottle). Pours a nice dark tan color with a thick head. Smells floral and citrusy with notes of cereal and toast. Taste is not overly hoppy, but you get that in the aftertase. This beer is not that extreme of an IPA as the story made it out to be, but it’s quite good nonetheless. Don’t think I’d spend this much again for the novelty.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 once bottle, shared with Josh, Ryan, and the newly-turned-21 club at Paradiso Georgetown. Cloudy golden color, edge head. Aroma of bourbon, oak, rhum. Taste is very malty, with smooth brandy and pine, slight edge of lime. Interesting and delicious.

3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light hazed muddy brown a little green when he’d to the light. The sweetest, saltiest, maltiest and balmiest mild ale flavour with amazing toffee aftertaste deep and powdery. Fun. That is good
