3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught (6.8%) @ Olutexpo 2013
Aroma is fruity and fresh with hops, some resiny tones and mango. Flavour has lots of resiny notes, some caramel, exotic fruits, minerals and dstant woody notes. Refreshing and nice, the minerals and wood do distiurb a bit though. Also this gets some harshly bitter and vegetable notes at the end of the glass.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap@bdsthlm. Coppery slight hazy. Really fruity, fruit desserty. Mangos, pineapple juice, tangerines. Feels actually quite fanta- like at times, for those who know that pop. Bitter super fruity body. Not much malts, only fruity hops in flavour. A very soda like beer. Nice to try, but I dont think I could do a session with it.

Bottle. Copper amber, clear. Nose is loaded with hoppy grapefruit and pine, some tropicality/florals, caramel, malts. A bit of butterscotch and butter and.. honey? Body is slick, medium light. Good soft bitterness. I’m wondering where’s the xmas in here? Seems like a fresh hoppy ipa to me.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Brown to copper coloured beer with some beige head. Typical BrewDog huge pine woody hops aroma. Lots of bitterness and a long finish. Taste-wise reminds me of 5 AM Saint with more ABV and more hops.
