Keg at BrewDog Camden, London. Pours clear, vibrant gold with a fine, white cream head. Nose holds lots of pee, some flowers, wet grass. Big sweet flavor with bready malts, pine, juicy orange, grapefruit, light caramel, mild urine. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish, moderately resinous, some ripe citrus, pee, pine, grass, lightly toasted sugars. Very nice IPA.

Keg at Arcadia. Pours a golden orange, small white head. Aroma is super fruity - mango, mandarin, lychee, apricot. Almost Ribena-ish, too. Taste is really nice IPA - hoppy, bitter with a juicy fruity character (individual fruits not quite as distinguishable as in the aroma). Bread sweetness too. Orange peel and citric bitterness hangs around subtly for a good while after the drink. Refreshing and not too bitter finish. Very good, this one.

Bottle. Unique fresh hops aroma. Bitter taste that last long. Hart to believe that this is so strong. It's so easy to drink.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle through the BD shop. Fresh fruity hoppy aroma with some reshly cut grass and "green hops" bordering on dill. The hop aroma is held back in the taste, hop resin finish with a fairly thick body and mellow bitterness. Decent IPA, it feels very much lika BrewDog beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cl bottle. Pours hazy orange with thin bright white head and plenty of lacing. Aroma is a big hit of sweet tropical hop character - mango, pineapple, passionfruit, tangerine; caramel malt prominent on the nose too. Taste gives plenty of pithy grapefruit, peach, orange, mango alongside a fair amount of sweet caramel malt which somewhat overshadows the hop character. Mouthfeel a touch thin. Not too much bitterness on the palate, could do with more. Pretty easy going, refreshing IPA, but could do with a paler malt bill in my eyes.

Nice! - simcoe hop juice with malty backbone. Citrus, pineapple, passion fruit - sugary hoppy IPA with solid bitterness but would not have hated a bit more bitterness.
