Pretty special IPA, smells awesome (really fresh and hoppy) and tastes just as fresh balancing bitter, sweet and refreshing

2/3 pint at BrewDog Camden. BrewDog beers are never dull to look at and this is no exception - cloudy, almost ginger beer-esque colour with a decent sized head and some fine lacing. This one has a strong aroma of orange and passionfruit. Having recently tried several of its label mates I can say that they all seek to strike a balance between fruity, alcopop style flavourings and the more traditional hoppy deliciousness. This latest brew seems to get the mix spot on - fruity yet medium bitter with a gloriously smooth finish.

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.

Keg at BD Camden, though the Hopinator. It pours a clear golden body with a medium qhite head. Aroma is huge tropical notes, mango, pineapple, peaches. Some resiny and flowery notes. Taste is tropical fruits, pineapple, honey, violets. Mildly bitter. Mouthfeel is medium with lively carbonation. Overall, fantastic IPA, but I suspect the fresh hop infusion improved the base beer quite a lot.

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.

Quite a fizzy number with a lovely fresh hop taste and a rich mouthfeel. Perhaps a little one dimensional but I guess that is the point of the range! Educational on hops!

Keg at Brewdog Camden. Light amber coloured with beige head of little bubbles. Aroma is hops and fruit. Bit of pine and slight cat pee/b.o. hops, malt and pepper. Bit of peach there but not a massive smell. Taste is very fruity, grapefruit, peach, mango orange. Really nice. Touch of malt in the background. Finish is initially bitter and then malty. Bit of a spike in the texture. Pretty nice.

Tap at BD Shoreditch. Pours clear bright orange with a small white cap. Nose is splendid mango based tropical fruits, passionfruit and tangerine with bright pear. Sweet fruit focus, I like it. Taste is loaded with tropical hoppage - think mango, passionfruit, nectarine and mandarin. There is some light zest on the finish it ha nice blood orange hit. Tangy and refreshing. More sweet than bitter and probably a little too much carbonation which muddles the hops a touch but damn it’s tasty. Very enjoyable
