3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured a light orangey color ale with a large foamy7 head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of citrus hops is quite powerful with not much else being discernable. Taste packs a powerful punch of citrus hops with a real bitter finish. Malt base is present though doesnítí make much of an impression. Body is about average for style with good carbonation. One-dimensional for sure but canít really argue with the citrusy hops punch of this one.

Bottle. A well crafted and balanced DIPA. Herbal and quite spicy. Grapefruit bitterness. Caramel. I prefer DIPAs to be a little sweeter and fruitier. Nice.

08/06/2011 11.2 Fl. Oz. bottle @ home - BB: 14/10/2011 (2011-255)
Little cloudy reddish brown beer under creamy beige head. Stable and a bit adhesive. Aroma: very fruity, peaches, pineapple and passion fruits, a bit flowery. MF: good carbon, medium to full body, creamy texture. Taste: fruity, hop bitter, sweet malts to balance, even a bit of milk chocolate. Aftertaste: fruity bitter hops, grapefruits, citrus, bit of wood, alcohol notes, dry finish. A bit strong, but complex enough to keep things interesting while drinking.

Another fine beer from Brew Dog. Strong hops abundant in taste and smell. Reminded me of one of the beers from Revelation Catís Woodwork series.

I drink this beer on a quite regular basis. Itís a great double IPA. Love the Brew Dog style and this is my favorite beer from them. Iíve never had the 9% one, so i canít compare them.

Sampled at Texas Beerfest. Pours a clear orange with a small beige head that lasts awhile leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is apricot and peach aroma and floral hops. Light mouthfeel with a smooth hop and light lingering bitter finish. Hides the alcohol well making it easy to drink, a very impressive IIPA from Brewdog.

Bottle; Pour is clear dark golden with a modest beige head that retains on the average side; heavy piney hop nose with grapefruit zest present. I have to admit; this brew works better than any brew Iíve had from BrewDog thus far; it may be heavily hopped, but it is not off putting; the caramel malt profile is fairly balanced with the hop profile; grapefruit, and pine resins. Just a nice brew here, overall.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
My first BrewDog experience. Citrusy nose. Smells of grapefruit and pine. Pours a beautiful hazy orange color with a creamy head that looked like cappuccino foam. WOW packs a punch, hops up front and assertive and linger through the rest of the sip. The malts are delicious; perfect for this style of a DIPA, and really showcases the grapefruity notes. Flavor lingers in your mouth as if every one of your taste buds is anxiously waiting for that next sip. My first BrewDog experience and surely not my last. Great.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Serious bitter hop aroma. Both oak and cat-piss. Tangerine and grapefruit. Tremendous. Appears hazy yellow, like a hefe. Little to no head. Tiny, stray, upfloating bubbles. Pale amber/gold. Flavor is blood orange and tangerine. Bitter grapefruit aftertaste. All citrus with a mild okay aftertaste as well. Roasted burnt cookie malts. The palate is thick and creamy. A nice bitter fizz. An outstanding beer. Hops of a harvest ale; malts of a burnt nature.
