3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, golden colour with a short and slightly cream-coloured foamy head. Mildly bready (cara-)malty aroma with fruity (citrus, grapefruit, mango), resiny and herbal hoppy notes. Quite bitter flavour, medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Initially mildly malty with present herbal, slightly resiny and fruity hops; extremely dry mouthfeel, astringently bitter hoppy finish with a lasting grapefruity and herbal aftertaste. Not really balanced but a hammer indeed. 08.XI.13

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy orangy color, nice fluffy white head. Flowery hops, old cotton, something funky, yeast, thick malt, freshly cut trees, grapefruit. Taste is sweet at first, with a bitter kick and a touch of salt. Medium body, slightly sticky texture and average carbonation. Maybe this is past it’s prime, but it feels unbalanced and has some weird aromas in there along with some very good ones. Gets better after being in the glass for a while though.

Light hazy beer with a white fluffy head. Unbelievably clear and distinct aroma of hops with, grass, light fruits, elder blossom, pine and some citrus. Taste of fruity hops with a clear bitterness. Some caramell, light fruits, pine and a light note of elder blossom and apples.

330ml bottle @ALEhouse, Riga
IMpressive brew from perspective of IPA not DIPA, pale amber in color with off-white frothy top, min lasing. Aroma of citrus-pine hops with some caramel-sugary touch at the end, complex aroma but weird is that all Brewdog samples of pale ales are quite similar on nose. Taste is sweet with heavily to style but for me average bitterness. Pleasant indeed. Quite thick also, min sour from hopping level seems at the end. Sampled before "I beat you" - and I prefer this one more.
