COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
keg, special
2013 Single-hop release. Part of the IPA is dead series. Single hopped with Amarillo @6.9%
Re-Released as part of 2014 selection. @7.2%
One of our favourite American hops; all about the fruit. Think blood orange, orange zest and citrussy goodness fruit, the fruit is balanced by floral notes in the most classic of new wave IPA hops.

Leighton (13578) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2013
Keg at BrewDog Camden, London. Pours clear, deep gold with a small, creamy white head. Nose holds some urine, ripe citrus, nips of spicy pine. Medium sweet flavor with restrained bitterness, some drying orange, light grapefruit, hints of dank grass. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation, very light resinous grass to finish, some dry pine needles, orange, grapefruit, light pee, some dry pale malts. Well balanced overall but not particularly bright. Still, good and tasty.

Koelschtrinker (12210) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAR 22, 2013
Trockener, stark grasiger Hopfenantrunk. Bitter, trocken würzig, mild herb. Nicht ganz rund, vielleicht etwas zu viel Hopfen. 11/10/9/9//9

Theydon_Bois (12130) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2013
Keg at Brew Dog Shoreditch, 25/02/13. Note for self - 6.9% ABV request style change to IPA. Lightly hazed golden amber with a thin bubbly off white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Nose is malt, citrus, orange, lemon sherbet, biscuity, wheatabix. Taste comprises bitter orange, grass, hops, caramel, sugars. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, bitter dry finish. Ok drinkable stuff but a bit one dimensional and not one I’d bother with again given a choice.

imdownthepub (11197) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2013
Keg at The Brewdog Bar, Nottingham. Hazy gold with white head. Initially quite a harsh, resinous flavour moving towards quite a peachy flavour, bitter, lasting. Interesting beer but not a quaffer for me.

Bottle. Orange golden color. Oily hops, orange and pineapple in the aroma. Biting oily hoppy flavor with hints of grass. Lots of orange and tropical fruit, also in the aftertaste. Oily mouthfeel.

Bov (10248) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - OCT 2, 2014
from Erzbierschof - hazy dark reddish-orange beer with a little foam left; fruity hoppiness of peaches and citrus; full-bodied, light earthy tartness and decently bitter; juicy and long fruity hoppy finish with more notes of peaches and apricot - clean and straightforward
