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.

Draft - Nice grapefruit with a pale malt sweetness. Clear gold with a rich white head. Lots of grapefruit and a big bitterness that is out balanced. Wonderfully hoopy and bitter pith, out of balance but a bitter hop bomb.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Murky orange with a huge amount of yeast particles and a minimal head. Aroma is sweet caramel malts and peachy, floral and fruity hops. Rather good, but maybe too obvious brewdog. Taste is hoppy with sweet malts, nothing special really. Bitter long finish.

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

Light amber. Smells of citra, grapefruit, like it. Tastes bitter but well balanced. Want to smell before each sip :-) also nice maltyness.

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 itís 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.
