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.

2/3 from Edinburgh Brewdog. Like a stronger Punk IPA, a little bit darker in body. Pours Amazing aroma, incredibly fresh hoppy whiff. Notes of spice, citrus. Overall big YUM factor.

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.

DanielBrown (3925) - 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.

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!

shoulderbroken (2202) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 17, 2012
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.

rosenbergh (7412) - 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.
