3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Craig’s. Pale copper, thick bubbly white head. Surprisingly juicy hop nose, peach and grapefruit, quite grassy though, lightly sweet caramel too. Tastes a bit tired though - light malts, some soap, pine grassy bitterness on the finish. Very tired but not disastrous.

29th March 2010
Cloudy brown beer. Thin off white head. Malt and a good amount of hop on the nose. Crisp palate. Toffee malt base plays second fiddle to aggressive hops. Very bitter orange and grapefruit. Toasted malt bitterness adds to the aggression. The bitter attack lets up a little as the beer warms up but overall the beer is too aggressively bitter.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
In bottle at Craig’s BrewDog tasting. Pours a dark amber colour with a decent yellowish head. Aroma of pine, pineapple, grapefruit and caramel. Similar flavours with moderate carbonation and a foamy mouth-feel. Moderate bitterness also. Not bad.

Dense earthy leafy hop aroma. Clear bronze. Great contrast. Light caramel, heavy hops! Black pepper and a raised eyebrow.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle with no best before date, but I am assuming it is pretty old. Slow gusher. Pours with a hazy deep bronze body, large, off-white head. Creamy, good retention. Aromas are still very hoppy. Immediate notes of grapefruit, orange and tangerine peel. A bit harsh and grassy smelling. A medium amount of papery oxidation. Cigar humidor, peppery, cedar, tobacco aromas as well. Caramel and toffee. Flavors are roughly bitter, very ashy, earthy, soil, tobacco, dirt. Vegetable, coffee grounds. Minimal hop flavors remaining. I am giving it the benefit of the doubt scoring wise. I am pretty sure it is not a fresh bottle, but there is no best before date filled in. Strong bitter balance. Surprisingly light oxidation. Astringent, lively bubbles. Not very dry either. Benefit of the doubt, but not a good beer now, score is on the generous side.

Herber, ziemlich bitterer Antrunk, im Ansatz merkt man aufgrund einer penetranten Andeutung, dass das Bier nur wenig Alkohol enthlt. Weiter bitter, was das Bier deutlich dominiert. Zitrusnoten im Abgang. /8/8/8/9/8

smells like holding whole leaf hops in your hand. almost too hoppy, which slants towards a pellet hop flavour in my mind. or in some way fabricated.
amber colour, clear and slightly fizzy
i liked the first two bottles but this finally seems over the top.

2.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
[330ml bottle, Cornelius Beer&Wine, Edinburgh] This one pours an inviting dark gold and has a fantastic strong hop aroma – very much like an imperial IPA. Unfortunately that’s as good as it gets. On the palate it’s frightening – the tasting notes say ‘it messes you up’ (for once an understatement from BrewDog). It’s a great idea to make a 8%+ monster without the alcohol, but it just doesn’t work. The result is empty, unbalanced, and ultimately undrinkable. Spoiled by the agonisingly bitter aftertaste, it’s so acrid and unpleasant I ended up pouring it down the sink

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottled, sampled 2010-07-10) Quite hazy reddish brown with a small, lacy head. Very strongly aromatic nose with American hops, fermented strawberries, and caramely malt. Flavor quite aggressively hopy, woody and caramely - but unfortunately also ashy-stuffy. Light to medium body, nice for the ABV, with low carbonation. An interesting try, but like many of the low ABV hop bombs, it falls into the irritatingly stuffy category.
