MarcoDL (1521) - 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 (1523) - 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.

Countbeer (4035) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - APR 6, 2013
Bottle: Batch 75: Small to medium airy and quickly changing (into a ring) white head/lacing on top of a cloudy orang colored beer. Aromas of malts, plants, nettle, some harsher hop fruits, soap and sweat. Flavours of plant extracts and bitters, honey, hops, floral, sweets, light honey and something sticky malts. Aftertaste floral, bitter, something like pilsmalts, hops a a hint of something sweet like honey. Low to medium carbo, soft tingly creamy mouthfeel, good as bit more than a medium body and a creamy texture. Decent IPA, unfortunately a bit old. But still pretty tasty.

Pours hazy golden yellow with small white head. Smells hoppy-fruity and herbal. Starts hoppy-fruity with some herbs. Middle part has caramel malts and very fruity hops, coupled with some pine woods. Finish has some caramel and bitter fruity hops with some herbs.
