mcberko (5352) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 28, 2013
On tap at Birmingham Brewdog, pours a clear golden / copper with a small beige head. Aroma of English hops, biscuity malts, and some vegetal notes. Flavour is chaotic as the name suggests, with abrasive zesty hops, some resin and wood. Very harsh hops on this, not blended or balanced well. Finishes absurdly astringent. I am a huge hophead as usually love nelson sauvin hops, but this recipe didn’t do it for me.

2013 batch very disappointing compared with previous years. Should be all about the hops, instead this year they’ve brewed a strong English ale, with little hop character to speak of.

Bottle at home from Brewdog online shop. Burnt nelson hop aroma. Some caramel nose as well. Dark golden loose thin white head. Crisp dry finish. Flavour is nelson sauvin dominant burnt cluthplate. Very palete.

Nische (530) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - APR 7, 2013
Deep amber color with light creamy head. Malty, grassy and spicy aroma. Light sweet taste with spicy flavour and finish in dry bitterness.

maekchu (1756) - Hirakata, JAPAN - APR 7, 2013
Bottle from Asahiya. Winey, yeasty, cherries, and deep caramel nose. Dark straw, small head. Harsh, rude hops in initial / scratchy sort of rye notes in mid / some weird prune and medicinal flavors in final. Medium-heavy body. Not as bad as it sounds, really. Not entirely pleasant, but drinkable.

spacecube (650) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2013
On keg at Brewdog Leeds, found this to be a very English style, malty IPA, with added cardboard and an unusual dry fruity hop profile . I was surprised to see that it was Nelson Sauvin hops. OK.

Cuso (3775) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 5, 2013
Bottle from brewdog.com. Orange golden color with medium off-white head. Earthy aroma with yeast, hints of grapefruits and oranges. Taste, barley, orange, orange zest, Nelson Sauvin hops, yeast, grapefruit zest, hints of pine. Harsh bitter finish. Weird but tasty.

DanielBrown (3625) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2013
Keg at Brewdog Brum. Hoppy, and yet extremely malty. Weird huh? Clean, council-pop style flavour, with water, and a ’hard to pin down’ combo of UK and foreign hop. Overall, liked quite a bit. But could have been of been oh so better.

ACD (568) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 3, 2013
33cl bottle - nice and fresh. Deep amber pour with thick and lasting white head. Aroma is citrus, overripe mango (a bit dank), some grape and melon, a touch of caramel, and a bit of woodiness. Taste gives some zingy mango and passionfruit, pithy grapefruit, orange, and a dollop of caramel malt. Pithy grapefruit bitterness lingers as does some juicy tropical fruit. Fairly sweet finish - caramel aplenty. Medium mouthfeel. Fairly drinkable. Tasty, but I prefer a paler malt bill to showcase NS as a hop.
