3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Fantastic tropical hop aroma of passion fruit, mango, citrus and peach. I find the mouthfeel a bit too dry however. It’s crisp, refreshing and flavourful though, and not too bitter (this is good, given the almost non-existent malty base), so it serves its purpose well.

Bottle sample at a tasting at kerenmk’s place. Thanks kerenmk. Cloudy dark orange color with an off-white head. Lovely hoppy aroma with tropical fruits and a bit of piney notes. Bitter flavor of fruity hops. Light to medium-bodied. Very tasty and quaffable.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bright slightly reddish colour with good head that stays nicely. Scent blew me away, so awesome! There is citrus and tropical fruits, I’m already feeling those hops. Taste explodes to my mouth, hops bring sweet and sour notes, at the end being a little bit on the sweet side. Slightly thin mouthfeel, but not disturbingly. Another epic beer from Brewdog!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fat. Bärnstensfärgad med vitt skum. Ananas, grape, lime och svagt av kåda hittas i både smak och doft. Oljig munkänsla. Att det är en öl med förhållandevis låg alk.-proc. märks inte på smaken.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a clear orange beer with a small white head on top. Aroma is tropical, grapefruit and even some sweet malts. Flavour is incredibly powerful for such a low abv beer. Intense grapefruit and tropical flavour hit you the moment this beer touches your tongue. Nice full and bittersweet with a medium long, faint aftertaste. Wow, what a pleasant surprise here!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours dark yellow with a nice white head, falls down after a while. Aroma: sort of grassy, pine-ish and hoppy, some tropical fruits. The taste is extremely nice for such a low alcohol beer, it feels much heavier than it actually is - in a good way. You get finely balanced tropical fruits blended with nicely balanced malts and hops, the finish is a little bitter, but generally very well balanced. Pine and hop notes. A very nice beer I definitely will buy more of.

A very well-balanced lowish-alcohol heavily-hopped pale ale. I wish there were more beers like this.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Pours clear pale, amber with a medium sized off-white head. Leaving a fair lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, piney notes and caramel. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and pleasant bitter. Light to medium bodied, oily texture and soft CO2. An OK pale ale. ★★★
