kingvit was dead on. smell is maybe bleak, hoppy, but then the pine hits you. it’s light though, refreshing carbon. time to feel the hops come out. but there is that solid aftertaste, still bitter, buttery. look at it! great red, amber glow beautiful pony.

On draught at Brewdog Shoreditch. Small head. You smell the passion fruit from a distinance already. Lots of exotic fruits + lemon/lime. In the taste, the resin side of the hops come to the foreground more.
More evidence that you don’t need a massive amount of alcohol to make a good beer.

Aroma: resin, pine, butter, citrus; Appearance: pale urine, small foamy head; Taste: medium bitterness, medium sourness, slight sweetness; Palate: bitter finish, medium body, soft carbonation, oily texture
This is a "forest butter" ale. Highly drinkable, aromatic, smooth, sessionable.

BB 07/04/15. Poured a hazy brown amber colour with 5mm of white foam for a head that diminished to a collar that laced OK. Carbonation high and coarse. Aroma of sweet fruity hops with citrus, grapefruit. Taste of moderate level of nice fruity hops and a touch of sweet malt. Light body. Crisp and smooth on the finish.

Smells nice and hoppy but not as tasty as expected. A little thin and too sharp, over carbonated.

Dry, woody short aftertaste.

Orange. Good beige head and lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, lime and pine shoots. Similar taste, with orange marmelade. Perhaps too much taste of lime juice. Otherwise decently balanced. Slightly waterish mouthfeel. Fine bitterness

A sessionable alternative to Punk IPA. Frickin excellent aroma, a real cleanser. Shame about the completely ludicrous and over-the-top marketing gobbledygook written all over the bottle. In the battle against corporate beer, it seems Brewdog are getting very rich indeed. Let’s hope their ’punk’ values enable them to do some good in the world.

Pours somewhat hazy yellow with a fairly big white quickly dissipating foam leaving some minor lacings. Aroma is fresh tropical fruit, pine, zest, mango. Taste is quite wattery, with tropical fruits and a moderate bitterness lingering. Light body, medium carbo. High drinkability.
