4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
bottle from stirchley wines. the one i was least looking forward to was suprisingly good. Amber colour with nice white head. Grassy hop aroma. Nice earthy, spicy hop taste, very english i taste but with more oomph!. nice hoppy aftertaste with just a hint of malt. overall an american style but with british taste. much better than expected would have this again anytime.

Nice beer, but the other three of the 2012 series were better. Perhaps challenger is more of a supportive hop and not meant to be used alone.

(7/2012) bottle. Amberish clear. Nose has brewdoggy caramel maltynesd, earthy hops. Body good medium full, ipa bitterness. As for the hops, they feel mainly earth, a bit herbal. Nothing special. The points come mainly from the brewdog signature caramel maltiness.
