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!

harrisoni (14015) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2012
At BrewDog Camden. hazy amber lasting white head. simcoe aroma. Decent simcoe ipa. Quite smooth. Ok. Could be more simcoey. Up against grand union single hop simcoe not simcoe enough.

Leighton (11631) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2014
Keg at BrewDog Shoreditch - London. Pours perfectly clear gold with a toght, creamy white head. Lots of ripe, expressive citrus in the nose, some sticky pine. Medium sweet with some sugary pale bread, more sappy pine, ripe orange, grapefruit, tangerine, light urine and grass. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Lightly resinous to finish with some boozy kick, more ripe citrus, pine, pale bread. The hop character is great but it’s a little too cloying. Close to being great.

Theydon_Bois (9636) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2014
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 !

Tap (Birofilia2014, Zywiec)
Pale orange, almost no head. Horrid crystal malt sticky aroma. Bland watery palate. Dull. Messy mashy malts. One of my favourite hops ruined - where are they? Weak in aroma, unsophisticated leafy bitterness in the mouth. None of the good aspects of a very nice hop. Classic blowdog.

rosenbergh (7238) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 21, 2012
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 (7183) - 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.
