COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle and keg: Filtered
Ingredients: Spring Blend, Cara and Crystal Malts; Simcoe, Citra and HBC hops.
This Californian Pale Ale packs a huge hoppy punch. A 21st century low amplitude, high voltage hop hit. Some people say slow is good. We believe fast is better. Being shot from a Hoppy Howitzer beats the hell out of trotting round a submissive paddock. That’s why the internal combustion engine got mounted onto two wheels. Screw down the throttle and listen for that dull banshee howl floating back from those malted mufflers. Drink fast, live fast, sleep late and rip it up down empty streets. This pale ale is chopped, tuned and ready to roll. Fuel up and hold tight, this little thoroughbred kicks like a mule. Perfect for drinking by the bottle, case or even keg.

Butleka 0.3L Zlocisty, opalizujacy z plywajacymi drobnymi klaczkami. Bujna piana z duzymi pecherzykami, szybko się dziurawi i calkowicie znika. Aromat intensywny, melon, marakuja, porzeczka, zywiczny na koncu z lekko mydlany. Piana w smaku gorzka i mydlana zarazem. Piwo w smaku owocowo mydlane z wytrawnym finishem i lekko sciagasjaca goryczka. Wysycenie na poziomie srednim. Cialo srednie do niskiego. Od polowy butelki piwo stalo sie bardziej owocowe a mniej mydlane, bardziej przyjemne w odbiorze.

Bottle from Bierzwerg
Pours pale hazy yellow with huge white head. Smells citrus hoppy, slight malty-grainy. Starts with fresh fruity hops, tropical fruits and some sweet yeast. Finish is grassy and fruity, with a nice malt base.

Glouglouburp (6022) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 25, 2013
In short: A dry, hoppy and highly aromatic APA that feels bigger than its size.
How: Bottle 330ml, consumed a few months before expiration date.
The look: Partly cloudy golden-orange body topped by a persistent small off-white head leaving lots of lacings on the glass.
In long: The bright aroma is floral and piney, this is quite aromatic for such a low abv IPA, Taste offers a solid crisp malt backbone, very crackery, no sweetness whatsoever. Generous hopping that adds grapefruits in mouth in addition to the piney and floral components. A bitterness of low-medium intensity. Not only is the body not watery but I didn’t even find it ligh. This beer doesn’t taste like a 3.8% APA, it tastes like a very dry 5%+ APA. Very satisfying for a 3.8% APA. An actual Dead Pony Club sounds cool but a Dead Baby Pony Club would be even better, I’m a necropedozoophile.

MichaelAwesome (4100) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - OCT 23, 2013
What a nice piwo for that kind of low abv ! Bit of sweat with hops and citrus in the front combined with a slight deep brown colour. Easy to drink but with a huge bandwidth of aromas. Would have loved a second one.

McTapps (4100) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - OCT 22, 2013
Pours out of the bottle in a clear amber colour with low head and medium body. Wonderful aroma of hops and citrus spices. Taste of ripe Citra Hops, light hints of mint, grass, coriander seeds, light malt, mandarinas with their bitter peel and green nuts. Very easy and nice to drink - delicious and intense. Mild bitter finish. I enjoyed this beer a lot - it was a perfect start into the evening. I just missed some certain body and deepness, otherwise it would have been even better.

RickFifty (312) - Fredrikstad, NORWAY - OCT 21, 2013
Peach color, big white head. Passion fruit, pineapple and peach nose, hint of caramel. Grapefruit taste without the bitter finish, hint of pine. Full of flavor and surprisingly good.

UPDATED: OCT 28, 2013 33cl bb 06/2014, bierpost. Finally, another below the critical par 4 standout sessioner. Enticing exotic aromas of maracuja & mango luring you into a juicy, light & still crisp dry pale/blonde ale. Simcoe? coming in with a quick bitter kick. Short finish, cliffhanging into the absent next bottles. Great, sessionable stuff fit for the Mrs & co. Another benchmark for Brewdog, I hasten to begrudge - the vapid boasting on the label (along with the import price) makes it hard to truly love their beers for being confident pinnacles and rejuvenators of quite a few styles. Rerate 2nd bottle 1 week later: have to admit that their is a distinct air freshener aroma to the hop profile, also spilling over into the taste and faint aftertaste due to low ABV. 4.1->3.9

330ml bottle from Sainsbury’s. Bubbly off-white head, disappears quickly with little lacing, clear amber body. Load of hops on the nose, tropical fruit. Flavour is grapefruit, apple, grass with a slightly bitter aftertaste, lingering grass and citrus. Lots of flavour in there considering the low ABV. Mouthfeel is good, medium carbonation.

Drank from a bottle at home. A really tasty low-alcohol beer. There’s some fresh fruits and sweetness in the taste in addition to some hops. Really good!
