3.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark orange pour. Nice foamy head that dissipates reasonably quickly. Smells of everything that I love about DIPAs... hoppy, citrusy and with a twang of bitterness. Tastes a lot like it smells. Very bitter aftertaste. Draws obvious comparisons with my current favourite DIPA (Magic Rock Human Cannonball) but I find this to be a bit too thick and syrupy to really compete on the same level (still rather nice though).

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Explicit Imperial Ale. Allright!
Dark orange pour with tiny head. Strong potent aroma of piney, grapefruity hops, oranges, sour candy. Really big on the aroma front.
Taste is just as forward: Sweet and resiny with a full mouthfeel, sweet malts, pineapple and very nice bitter aftertaste. A bit too sweet and sticky but a great finish that leaves you tasting the hops for quite a while.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear amber with a red tinge. Aroma of mandarin orange, grapefruit, pine, caramel. Palate is quite sweet, but not cloying, and quickly fades into a lingering bitterness. Alcohol is well hidden. Quite a contrast with this one. Nice.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a two finger head that recedes very slowly. A real good citrus aroma accompanied with malt and hops. A fairly bitter taste with malt and hops. A very solid Double IPA and one to have more of in the future.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Big bottle, poured a sort of dark tan hazy color. Medium head retention. Houston, Whole Foods. Aroma is a blend of malt and floral hop. Medium bitter. Ave carbonation. This has a balance of strong malt with hop, with malt tilting the scale. Nevertheless it will do. Well done.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear, dark amber colour with a tanned and short foamy head. Pleasantly piney and resiny hoppy aroma with fruity accents of lime and mildly cara-malty background. Bitter and slightly sweet flavour, full bodied with a calm carbonation. Hearty cara-malty base with the full dosage of mainly resiny and slightly fruity aroma hops; dry and bitter lingering hoppy finish. Very good

Tesco finest @ £6 for 4. Bargain of the century so far. The problem is that the more of these you drink the more intense a flavour you need... feels like iím slowly joining the hop-hunting mission

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a dark amber with a somewhat foamy dark tan head and some lace. Aroma is of orange, grapefruit, pine, lemon, resin. Very strong flavour, grapefruit, orange, pine, hops, resin, some alcohol. Very bitter but it dissipates fairly quickly leaving a nice fruity, alcoholic aftertaste.

This beer is actually BrewDog's hardcore IPA that has been branded for tesco. The beer is incredible value for money at £1.99 a bottle rather than over £3 for the brewdog bottling. Great flavour, and strength. A must buy
