From notes: November 7, 2013. A: Grapefruit, pine, a bit earthy and some other tropical aromas happening as well... fairly certain I recognize the simcoe hop presence as well. A: Pours a clear deep amber color with a off-white head that thinned to a ring. T: Alcohol is overwhelming, drowning out the simcoe hops and everything else. Subtle malts try to present themselves, but just get muted. M: Medium bodied, smooth and warming. O: Alcohol was overwhelming.

Arômes de pamplemousse, robe cuivrée, très amère par rapport au corps. Bonne bière, mais la punk est meilleure.

Brewdog stworzył rzeźnika, który jeńców nie bierze. Aromat chmielu, lekko alkoholowy. Barwa bursztynowa, klarowne, piana biała, drobna, średnio obfita. Goryczka jest głównym aktorem tego piwa. Przejmuje inicjatywę i nie oddaje jej aż do końca - przyjemna, potężna, szlachetna po uderzeniu od razu znika. Alkohol mistrzowsko ukryty. Piwo degustacyjne - nie dla wszystkich.

On tap at Hair of the Dog Bangkok. Colour is dark orange like sweet honey, the smell is of two ripe mangoes got in a fight and bruised the shit out of each other. Taste is strong dank juicy and a little sweet. I remember it being sweeter. But this was quite nice.

Form the bottle. Pours amber with huge head. Nose is american hops citrus, pine flowers sweet and fresh. Taste is a complex Boom of all Kinds of hops aromas you can imagine. Kind of oily texture and mouthfeel but then again fresh and crisp. Overall a awesome winner. But, yes there is a but... But its simply to much. The 125 IBU’s simply overwhelm you but the Aroma is awesome. Kind of split apart by this one... Always a good beer once in a while...

From old notes. 330ml bottle. Light unclear dark golden orange color with off white head. Hoppy and malty aroma, pine, grapefruit, caramel, light alcohol. Sweet and heavy bitter taste. Medium oily body with soft carbonation.

Bottle 33 CL alc 9,2. Copper color with white thin lacing head. Notes of grapefruit, citrus, caramel, pine, plenty of hops. Alcohol well hidden behind the plethora of hops. Slightly one sided tho. Still decent stuff.
