dogbomb (930) - ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle. Dark builders tea, amber with a thick fluffy cream head. Nose is "classic" brewdog. Tropical fruits. There’s an addition of some toffee in there. Taste is - hehe - out of this world. There’s lots of fruit as epexcted, but not the fruits I was expecting. Strawberry, peach, bubblegum, you can just about eke out that grapefruit and mango from the nose, but it’s pushed to the back by the sweeter fruits and malts. This is DELICIOUS!

Garrold (1144) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2014
Bottle from StarmoreBoss, Sheffield. Clear, reddy amber. Bubbly, sticky, white head. Ripe, plummy fruit. Thick hop. Bubblegum. Taste is light tart. Woody dry. Chewy bitter. Chomp on the palate. Big, thoroughly chewy, bitter finish. Is this beer right? Not too sure. Still tasty, mind.

Psytron (1287) - Turku, FINLAND - JUN 25, 2014
Smell of rye. Mud colour, small white head. Aroma of rye bread, syrup, some tar. Flat carbon, oily texture. Main taste is a light rye sourness, some sweetness also. Excellent if you are expecting rye flavour, otherwise probably mostly kilju.

netty (66) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAY 25, 2014
Zlatojantarova farba. Vo vôní chýba typicky BrewDog-citrusova. Iná? jemná, cítim nejakú bylinu.. neviem to identifikova?. Ale je to nie?o nové. Chu? sladucko horké. Krásna kombinácia. Ve?mi dobré príjemné osvie?ujúce pivo. Mô?em. . kedyko?vek.

Karol (603) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAY 25, 2014
Bottled. Aroma not so strong, very weak but malty and some notes of dark fruits. Color is beautiful golden brown copper clear. Head is white with some beige. Stable. Taste is great! Malty, sweet, fruity with a pleasant mild hoppy finish. Overall a very drinkable rye ipa.

Gurthnar (1568) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAY 20, 2014
Bottle from Bottle Park. Aroma is mostly hoppy with a hint of roast. Nicely fruity, Amarillo is a significant player here. Slightly hazy amber to red colour, short lasting head. Taste is full of hoppy goodness, well rounded and playing off the decent caramel maltiness. Fruity, resiny, Amarillo being the top player again. Bitter, earthy, piney finish. Rather light bodied, easily drinkable. Very good.
