4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle to tulip at home, batch 284.
Pours golden with small head, which reduces to none in two minutes. Carbonation can be seen, as bubbles work their way up.
Intense and beautiful aroma of tropical fruits, mango and pine. Flavour seems sweet, fruity at first, then quickly comes down to intense and bitter grapefruit.
Medium body, lively carbomated with long, herbal finish. Great beer overall, the smell is incredible, but appearance isn’t shockingly good.

Bottled. Hazy golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is sweet malts, fruits, toffee and some slight herbal notes. Flavour is a bunch of fruits, a bit boozy along with a quite nice bitterness to go with it.

Beautiful IPA. Tropical fruit, gooseberries, and grapefruit aroma. Mandarin, pineapple, gooseberry, mango, passionfruit - well all kinds of wonderful exotic flavours - combined in the taste. Fruity bitterness in the aftertaste, very well balanced.

Bottle from Brewdog online. Gold with a moderate white head, a nice frothy fizz. Lots of sediment- unusually so for Brewdog, maybe they’re considering moving to bottle-conditioned beer! Delicious tropical fruit aroma- peach, lychee and passion fruit. Massive pine bitterness on tasting, but to my surprise the tropical fruits still shine through and provide an excellent balance. A delicious beer, apart from the bitterness coating my mouth and still being there the next morning, by which time the balancing tropical sweetness had long since departed. Nonetheless, it’s still a superb beer, one of my favourites of the year. Just need to tone down the floaters a bit... maybe I’d serve it through a sieve next time!
