#Mashtag 2014 - a beer for the people, by the people.
The #Mashtag concept is simple. We invited the public to vote on each aspect of the brew, from hops to malt to the special twist and even the label design, and from the thousands of possibilities this presented, the result is an imperial red ale, brewed with copious speciality malts, a global blend of hops, and blood orange, lemon peel and orange peel.
On the nose, there’s a riot of citrus, in many forms, from orange pith to lemon zest, via lime juice and even lemongrass. Fresh, bright resinous notes blend with light toasty malt aromas.
The palate is intense with toffee, with tiny hints of tobacco smoke coming through in little bursts, but the star attraction is an all-out bitter orange avalanche. A slightly psychotic, orange-that-thinks-it’s-a-grapefruit character builds upon and intensifies the hop bitterness, squaring up against the rich sweet malt base. The result is a huge red ale with a drinkable quality you’d expect in a beer half this strength.

DSG (10564) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 22, 2015
Bottle sample at a tasting at Max’s place. Thanks troubles. Clear amber. Aroma of malt, caramel, and stale hops. Sweetish flavor with malt, caramel, stale hops, and some bitterness. Medium-bodied.

cagou007 (837) - FRANCE - APR 16, 2015
Pours dark copper color with very small tan head that quickly disapears. Nose is molasse, red fruits, caramel. Aromas are roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, caramel, and some pine notes. Oily texture, medium carbonation. Medium bitter finish, with a metallic aftertaste. Rather well balanced between sweetness and bitterness, but the persistent aftertaste is deceptive. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mlkmn (23) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 9, 2015
Beautiful lively aroma of citrus fruits. Tastes similarly like BrewDog’s very own 5 A.M. Saint, but a somehow "deluxe version". Quite sweet, but not too much. Wonderful notes of chocolate on the palate. Democracy at its best.

Mars276 (89) - Cracow, POLAND - APR 7, 2015
Kolor: Miedziany. Piwo jest klarowne. Piana: Drobnopęcherzykowa. Niezbyt obfita. Niezbyt trwała. Lacing śladowy. Aromat: Żywica spod której wyłazi odrobina karmelu. Mógłby być bardziej intensywny. Odrobina rozpuszczalnika Smak: Karmel pomieszany z rozpuszczalnikiem. Żywiczne aromaty chmielowe gdzieś się tu gubią. Piwo jest półsłodkie. Lekko grzeje w przełyk - poza tym alkohol jest dobrze schowany. Goryczka co najwyżej średnia, ale za to zalegająca, mało szlachetna. Piwo jest nieprzyjemne w odbiorze. Wysycenie: Średnie - w porządku. Opakowanie: Etykieta niezbyt w moim guście. Brak informacji o chmieleniu, zasypie i użytych drożdżach. Uwagi: Warka ważna do 27-05-2015. Wielkie rozczarowanie. Nie polecam.

Dzhigga (343) - Kirov, RUSSIA - APR 4, 2015
Bottle. Clear ruby-orange color with small unsteady head. Aroma of cranberry, grapefruit, some pepper notes. Taste is medium bitter, some earthy and citrus notes. Finish is long, with nice load of bitterness. 9% ABV can’t be detected in taste or aroma, only by thickness of body. Nice beer!

Bottled at Ugglan, Stockholm. Hazy nut brown, small head. Caramelly nose. Sweet with medium-full body and rounded, sticky mouthfeel. Syrup, molasses, not much else. A sticky mess.

From bottle in tulip glass. Beautiful head on a crimson body. Rich taste as expected from an Imperial Red: toffee through to citrus. Plenty of ethanol in the finish.
