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.

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!

Pours a darker gold colour with light head that dissipates. Aroma is strong pineapple, hoppy and citrus. Body is medium carbonated but well rounded. Finish is slightly bitter very hoppy but not too dry and quite short. A drinkable summer ale!

In the Aroma i can find a hint of caramel and nice strong hops, citrus. Nice hazy orange colour with a white head. The hops play the main role here and the bitterness is rely good. Light body with a nice medium carbonation. A nice refreshing beer low in alcohol.

#35 BrewDog. 33 cl. bottle @ ’t Antwaerps Bierhuyske. BBF 02/05/2014. Appearance is dark textbook amber with a stable off-white head. Nose is typical BrewDog hop-profile, herbal hops, pine resin, pretty hoppy but not brutal mixed with some caramel malts. Taste is full of Brewdog herbal hops, some pine, faint mango mixed with caramel malts, hint hay, resin, crystal, oily, some sugar that balances out,… Easy body, hoppy. I am not a big fan of the BredDog hop profile but this carries a nice hop profile, is very balanced & easy to drink. This is a nice sessioning brew & would be pretty nice if sold at an appropriate price. This is comparable to their Punk IPA but way better, this makes their Punk IPa obsolete in my opinion. Lovely name.
