On tap at Man in the Moon, January 2014. Labeled as Voodoo Doll.
Amber/golden with a white head. Nothing special with this one. Grapefruit, malt, pine and toffee. Also notes of earth. The finish was bitter.

Although he hops are not that obvious is aroma, there is some citrus, but not a lot. The taste is quit nice, some balanced malty caramel with some bitterness. Not too aggressive, but quite ok.

Happy Christmas to you too. A lovely IPA. Citrusy and bitter. A strong malt in background that takes the edge off it. Not sure what makes a Christmas beer but it’s strong enough so my throat’s glowing like Rudolph’s nose.

Delicious ipa. The aroma is a little bit underwhelming, but the taste makes up for this. It has tropical fruits, but also warmth in the aftertaste, medium bitter and overall outspoken and well balanced

Bitter met een zoetje. Wel wat te warm. Te dun schuim. Bij Arjan smaakte die beter, wat kouder denk.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Drank this a bit too late I guess.... Pours a slightly clouded, orange beer with a small white head on top. Has some floaties goofing around in the glass. No worries. Aroma is crisp, fresh. Light citric, touch of vanilla in the background and a nice malty backbone. Flavor is medium bitter, well balanced and good amount of maltiness to back up the hops. Hop presence has certainly not faded over time here, still very present. Medium long, light bitter aftertaste. Good level of carbonation going, juicy mouthfeel. Quite a very nice IPA. Merry Christmas..

330 ml from Beer&Deli, Athens Greece. Beautiful orange copper color with a not so strong but quite fluffy white head. Aromas of pine, pineapple, citrus and some spicy-sweet notes, honey, cinnamon and papaya!!!!! Dry and bitter aftertaste which leaves a nice spicy feeling of cinnamon and papaya! Light to medium body, with a low to none carbonation. A nice IPA, not so sure if it fits the Christmas type, as it’s my first try!!

From bottle. Pours clear ruby copper liquid.White head falls down quickly. Aroma of mango, citrus, pineapple, somewhat typical Brewdog, flowers. Medium body, average carbonation, much of hops, semi sweet, aromatic fruity aftertaste. Taste is the same like aroma, mango, citrus, pineapple, somewhat typical Brewdog, flowers plus some strange notes of ammonia or pitch?? All the way very nice hoppy beer for an evening.
