Appearance: lovely toffee orange colour with a small white head. Aroma: awesome cat piss, caramel, pine, orange peel, marmalade, smells wonderful. Flavour: Bitter, pine cone, rich mango, tons of hops, quite sweet but in a great way, tangy fruity finish. Alcohol barely detectable. Lovely.

33 cl bottle @ home. Pours reddish amber with an off-white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is citrusy and resinous hops and some malt. Flavour is hoppy with hints of citrus and resin and some malty sweetness as well. Abv is quite well hidden and the finish is not particularly bitter.

(Flasche) Es hat eine Kastanienbraune Farbe, ist unfiltriert mit einer weißen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist fruchtig, mit Aprikose, Mandarine und ein bisschen Cranberry. Der Geschmack ist süß, fast sirupartig mit einer leichten anhaltenden Bittere.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A mio avviso una delle migliori double IPA sul mercato.
Bottiglia 33 cl. Ambrata, limpida (la bottiglia è filtrata....), con schiuma bianca poco persistente.
Naso imponente di frutta tropicale, resinoso, con note di miele e biscotti....
Bocca calda, corposa con una esagerata luppolatura bilanciata da note dolci alcooliche e maltose.....
una bottiglia non basta....occhio ai 9,2%.......

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at Brewdog Camden. Clear orange-amber with decent lasting creamy offwhite head. Smells of alcohol, fruity malt, a whisper of toasty nutshell, but mostly fresh perfume/floral lush fresh hops. Taste has more tangerine and hibiscus flower, with alcohol. Average body, decent catbonation, finishes fruity and dry with a turn toward booziness, but quite pleasant for all that. Nice one!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
The aroma is quite hoppy as advertised but I have smelled more so. There is pine, citrus and a bit of metallic. The malt is super sweet and caramel like. The taste is like the aroma being overly hoppy but not quite astringent. The palate is smooth and right for the style. Overall a good example of the style but a bit to bitter for me.

This is a wonderful beer. Smells super citrusy, with lots of fruitiness and floral hops. Pours red with a good head, lacing. Taste has lots of florals and a little bitterness and alcohol, though the high alcohol hides a lot of the bitterness. It’s a pretty original beer, heavy on the fruit-like aromas and tastes without being excessively bitter on the aftertaste. Even my girlfriend liked this one, and she usually hates IPAs. Bottle at The Rhino.

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2012 Bottle - Crazy grapefruit hop bomb with some malts peeking through with sweetness. Clear amber with medium dissipating head. Bitterness and alcohol are prevelant along with the citrus hops. Unbalanced but wonderfully so.
