3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On-Tap at Brewdog Aberdeen (Schooner):
Lychee and bitter hops to begin with some pine and citrus along with a bit of grapefruit making up most of the rest. There is a solid IPA aroma to this one with a fruity smell in the background.
Light amber with a clear body and a thin, foamy white head on top that is more of a lacing.
Dark fruits and bitter hops to begin and a helping of grapefruit and pine too. There is some strong bitter notes and and touch of sweet malts as well as some tropical flavouring.
Bitter with a medium body and moderate carbonation. There is a nice citrus tang and a slightly dry finish.
A nice, very bitter IPA that had some good fruit notes and a strong, hoppy taste. This one would fall somewhere in between Brewdogs Punk IPA and their Hardcore IPA in both style and taste.

Pours hazy yellow with bubbly head. Aroma of lime, lemon, pine, very hoppy. Taste is very bitter but balanced with sweetness of malt. Reminds me of a more powerful Punk IPA (which I love). Slightly oily and slick mouthfeel. A lovely beer, powerful and satisfying.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle BB 14/07/16 from Ammersin 5, Vienna.
Golden, clear body, with a big, fluffy, white head.
Aroma of grapefruit, lime, resin, grass, pine, some pineapple, biscuit.
Taste follows this pretty much.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishe bitter, dry, resinous, zesty, piney, grassy, a bit alcohol warming.
Very nice. A straight, bitter, dry IPA, with a dominant grapefruit and resinous taste. Still well balanced, with the right amount of sweet malts. Alcohol is noticeable, but doesn’t drink too heavy. Not my favourite style of an IPA, but enjoyable.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a hazy orangish copper with a frothy white head. Aroma of grapefruit, caramel, light pine, resin and more grapefruit. Taste is grapefruit, resin, sweet pale malts, more grapefruit and a smooth bold bitterness throughout. Very well balanced and never astringent!

Nice, fruity aroma with the malt shining through. The taste is hoppy at first followed by a long, bitter aftertaste.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Color naranja turbio, espuma fina que desaparece rápidamente. El aroma es cítrico, resinoso y algo maltoso. En boca es suave, con presencia de malta, caramelo, pomelo, pino, muy equilibrada. Buen cuerpo y carbonatación baja, pero suficiente. Final amargo, no exagerado, bastante persistente. Una IPA excelente.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle BBE: 14/07/16. Well-chilled. Pours a slightly hazy golden body with minimal, patchy, off-white head. Bubbles quickly dissipate giving a flat appearance. High-intensity aromas, most strikingly grapefruit with some resin. Very juicy, tropical fruit squash; slightly herbal, some mint. Dominant bitterness, as fits style, with a moderate sugary sweetness holding up well against the hops. Medium-bodied with a slick, oily texture, low carbonation and a disappointingly short finish. A pretty good American-style IPA with masses of tropical fruit on the nose without much of the associated bitter resinous notes. However, its impact is lessened slightly by the low carbonation leading to a lack of crispness or even a lasting finish.
