RichardGretton (4525) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2008
Cask@Derby Winter Beer Festival, 2008. Golden beer with a syrupy sweet aroma and a syrupy and quite bitter flavour. Overall an average beer.

rane (987) - Nibe, DENMARK - JAN 22, 2008
Bottle. Dark golden colour with small long lasting head. Quite pale for an IIPA, but I guess there is no norm for the way it looks. Aroma grass, hopps, citrus and some malt below. Taste full body. In the beginning (1 -2 seconds) it is very malty and then the hopps takes over and the beer becomes quite bitter and very dry. A nice beer, and given 0.1 extra for the label. Drunk by one man with wife, children and 10 cats.

Pours a clear dark yellow with a small white head. Light sweetness and quite bitter. Aromas of some hops and a bit of wool. Big alcohol aroma too. Medium to full bodied and slightly oily. Not so good.

thewolf (11728) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 16, 2007
Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph. Pours a beautiful clear golden copper-like with a small white-ish head. Average lacing. Aroma is heavily fruity hoppy, lots of oranges, pineapple and grapefruit. Quite low carbonation, somehow oily mouthfeel. Flavour is initially quite sticky sweet, then suddenly turns heavily hoppy. Not only that, it is very bitter as well. Pine, pineapple, caramel, apples, elderberries and very, very dry. Somehow Brewdog manages to merge the American and British IPA into something far more potent. Still prefer the elegance and puntuality of the Punk IPA.

cheeta (1181) - Langå, DENMARK - DEC 16, 2007
Heavy hoppy aroma and lots of flowers. Huge frothy, white head. Excellent lacing. Fully lasting longevity. Clear yellow body. Heavy bitter initial flavor with a tast of elderberry. The finish duration is very long. Medium palate.

33 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden yellow/orange with a white head. Peach fruity and solid caramel malt flavour. Sweet malt flavour, slight dark towards mild smoked. Fruity hops lingering on top and lifting the brew up. Nice balance. Solid bitterness into the finish. Very nice.
