UPDATED: JUN 1, 2011 Caramel sweetness and citrus hoppy character. Much like Stella 0, has a sort of strange clash between malt and hops rather than a harmony. Balance isn’t all there, and there is too much malt for an IPA this hoppy IMO. Merely good.

Hazy amber with a small off-white head. Herbal and fruity hop aroma with a touch of tobacco leaves. Sweetish and fruity flavour, but with a somewhat harsh bitterness

Deep autumnal orange. White head that remains with lacing. Massive citrus, earth....everything hops! Malt actually balances well to give it an earthy, bitter balance.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Copperbrown beer with a weak and blond head. Aroma is sweet, tropical fruits, some pine needles, fructose and peaches. Taste is quite dry, lots of piney bitterness, some fruits, long and lasting aftertaste. Slippery and nice to drink. Dry and strong bitterness, Brewdog IPA’s friends probably likes this beer also, I would like to more fruityness.

Fantastic IIPA with great balance. Powerful hoppy nose and malt-balanced taste. Does not taste like a mix at all.

Amber orange thin persistent head ant great lacing. Really fresh hop aroma of citrus and pine. Super hoppy (just as i like it). Nice bit of sweet caramel in there to match the massive hop finish. Awesome 2IPA.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I think I paid $7 or $8 for this bottle, and while it is a solid IIPA, I’m a bit disappointed. Pours amber with a frothy white head. Nose reveals malt and pine. The flavor is piney, somewhat sweet, and perhaps a bit floral. Nothing spectacular here, but a solid IIPA.
