330ml bottle from Brewdog online operations. This is the shit. What Brewdog do best (outside of the sometimes wonderful stouts). Pours clear gold, thin white head. Massive hop aromas- tropical fruit, grapefruit, mango, peach, pineapple, amazing. Touch of caramel/biscuit at the back there too. Damn. Good. They should make this all year round.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Söder om Småland, Malmö
Hazy amber color with creamy head. The aroma is moderately fruity, but the apple side doesn’t belong here. Lean mouthfeel, round too; moderate sweetness, simple malt flavor, rather nice fruity touch for the hopping; regularly strong bitterness. Not enough malt flavor, not enough hop freshness.
Good beer, no thrills.

2012-12-03, bottle from La Cave à Bulles, Paris, batch 319 bb 11-10-13,
Beautiful golden/amber color, clean, with medium sized creamy head. Wonderful hoppy aroma, fresh and pungent, fruity, and light manure in the end. The mouthfeel is lean and rather dry, a good canvas for the nice toffee flavor, and without the crystal-like notes found on draught; strong bitterness, providing mostly resins, but also light orangey fruitiness. Long final.
2012-11-28, draught at La Fine Mousse, Paris, 9-5-7-3-15=39
Beautiful copper-amber color with compact head. Fantastic hoppy aroma, with plenty of fresh fruits, then some pungent character, passion fruit, light manure character. Medium body strength; malt flavor, but also crystal malt, therefore a bit cloying; very moderate sweetness; quite strong bitterness, the hops is fruity; but overall not cohesive.
Confused hop bomb.
