Bottle from systembolaget, sweden. Big bubbly beige foam that is semi lasting. Very clowdy orange color. Much piny hop aroma. almost like terpentine but also a bit of smooth caramell. Short initial hop taste then a lasting crisp bitterness that lasts long. No perticular maltiness and a medium body.

MarcoDL (2386) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 24, 2013
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.

jookos (2612) - FINLAND - MAY 9, 2013
(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.
