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.

Citrus and pineapples... bitter taste with balanced sweetness... soft carbs and a long bitter hoppy finish... good strong ipa that lacks its own character

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle @ La Capsule, Lille - FR. Color: clear amber beer with medium carbonation and medium white foam. Smell: high hoppy nose, with fruity (mango and peach) notes and some caramel taste. Taste: big hoppy explosion with mango and exotic fruits notes. Aftertaste: nice wet bitterness and fresh sensation. Really drinkable this beer can be the step between the Punk IPA and the Hardcore IPA.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
This one came after a Deviant Dale’s Oskar Blues so might be down rated after that beauty. Really smells like dacka.........very nice aroma, super floral. Bit of a one trick pony though. Nice bitter length......maybe a music festival or long Sunday picnic tipple?

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
£2.20 Bottle. What you would expect from a good BrewDog IPA. Tropical mango fruits with waftings of skunky weed. Slightly bitter after taste, but a full hop flavour and aroma. Very nice!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle. A clear yellow ale with a fine textured white head. Nice hoppy, citrus aroma. Taste a sharp metallic citrus hoppy flavour and a nice balance bitterness. Resembles Punk IPA in many respects of course, rather nice in consequence.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Good spiky hop nose when 1st opened. Crystalline yellow colour with fairly decent off white head. Decent lacing too. Deep Long huskiesh dense bitterness which end strong & very dry. Lovely taste but needs more core strength and complexity for greatness.
