On tap at the Camden Brewdog. Slight haze on this orange - amber beer. Small pale cream coloured head. Smooth palate, carbonated sting. Bags of fresh Simcoe. Tastes very fresh but also has a good dose of skunk that I would normally associate with Nelson or sometimes Citra. Fresh pithy orange and tangerine. Mild floral and grassy notes. Smooth pale malt underneath. Minerally crisp finish with more intense grassy Simcoe and bitter pine. Intense! Phew!

Keg at BD on the Bush, 04/03/14. Orange amber with a good sized off white covering that retains well. Nose is floral, bitter orange, pine, grapefruit, mango, juicy hops. Taste comprises grapefruit, juicy mango, soft bread dough, light spice, good lick of pine, tropicana express. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Solid IPA - one for the BD haters to go seek out !

Draught at BrewDog Aberdeen, Aberdeen, Scotland.
Clear amber colour with small off-white head. Intriguing fruity aroma with Toilet Duck. Nice bitterness and gentle fruity hops in flavour. Tasty and enjoyable.

Scopey (5557) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2012
Keg at BrewDog Aberdeen. It pours slightly hazy orange-amber, with a thin off-white head. The nose is quite fruity - orange, peach, mango, pineapple and passion fruit as well as some grass. The taste is pine, resin, mango, apricot, tangerine, kumquat, passion fruit, plastic and grass, with a dry finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Some good flavours in there, but a bit restrained for BrewDog to be honest with you.

DanielBrown (3629) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2012
Keg at Brewdog Camden. Very orange. Very fizzy. Fruity hop: beautiful to start , slightly gritty in the middle. Some pepper, some agressive fizz. Overall very nice, though perhaps not the best in the series.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 12, 2012
On keg at the BrewDog Bar. Pours a dark golden colour with a fair white head. A lovely hoppy aroma of pine, passion fruit and alcohol. A huge chewy passion fruit flavour again which lingers nicely. Also a little grass, caramel and alcohol. Moderate bitterness with alcohol fairly present. Very tasty.
