3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice hazy copper with small white head. Aroma is huge for this ABV with earth, green hops, spice and some tropical fruit. Palate is weak compared to aroma, small carbonation. aftertaste is refreshingly bitter with some water in the end. Overall: Excellent aroma! boring mouth feel, but considering the ABV its very impressive. Its like a session version of a big IPA.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottle) Hazy blonde beer with a strong grapefruit aroma. Plenty of zesty scents in there too. Flavour is an initial hop and citrus hit with a slightly floral edge. Taste is ever so slightly disappointing after the aroma and thereís not a particularly notable aftertaste either. Drinkable enough but nothing special.

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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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 didnít even find it ligh. This beer doesnít 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, Iím a necropedozoophile.

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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
