3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted this in BrewDog, Glasgow, on 31st January 2014. Cask, draft flow system dispense. Dull opaque amber in colour with a thin white head. Strong flavour of ripe mango in the long nose. Thin resiny mouthfeel and poor lacing. Pale malt base gives a powerful fruit flavour of mango, guava, peaches and Gaia melon. Powerful New World hops give a fruity intense kick to the long hoppy aftertaste. Finish is powerful and malty with tropical fruit flavours still in the palate. This is a decent Imperial IPA but there are better versions of this out there.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Tropical mango aroma. Flavour is fruit cocktail before a searing bitterness sets in. So much hops! No balance but all the better for it.

Golden colour with a white head. Aroma of hops, hops, hops. Tropical fruit such as grapefruit, mango, etc. Flavour is tropical fruit hoppiness with a massive bitter aftertaste. Very enjoyable IPA.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Craft at Brewdog bar in Stockholm
Aroma: very slight, fruits
Taste: Hops! Pure taste of hops.
Palate: medium carbonation is all you feel in addition to those hops.
Aftertaste: hops. That's all there is.
Very drinkable despite strong hoppiness.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Shared a 33cl bottle from Mi-Orge Mi-Houblon. Pours an almost clear pale yellow colour with a very small white lacing. Aroma is passion fruit, mango and floral hops. Soft carbonation and light body. Taste is bitter with a very suave sweet note and very very dry. Long bitter and dry finish. Overall, a fantastic beer but not very consistent between aroma and flavour.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Dark golden beer with a strong head. The aroma is lightly hopped, and the flavour is very well hopped with a large degree of bitterness and some malt. Overall a nice strong IPA.

Bottled 330ml. -from Magic Beer Room Zagreb. Pale golden coloured, small white head, citrusy hoppy nose, slightly herbal also. Sweet malty, quite strong herbal hoppy and heavy bitterness in the finish. Even too strong bitterness.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours golden. Hop aromas dominate and are very rich (grapefruit, orange, resin, mango, lychee, some pineapple). Very hoppy with high bitterness. Could use some malt for balance but still a very good beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2014 330ml bottle. Lovely hoppy, citrus, fruity and aromatic IPA. Very refreshing and easily drinkable for a 7.2% ABV beer. Better than Punk IPA which I also like a lot. I have to say though there was very little head from this bottle. The hops tend to dominate but there is some caramel present from the malt. Great beer.
