3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear amber pour with a small white froth. The nose holds huge orange peel citrus, with necar fruits, fruit cocktail, herbal evergreen, and caramel biscuit. The flavor is much heavier on the malt side, with toffee, caramel, and bread prevailing. The hop profile is very citrus oriented, with grapefruit and orange being most prevalent. The palate is thick and rich for the style with a sticky sweet resinous finish.

Bottle. Pours a clear and copper beer with an offwhite head. The aroma is malt, caramel and hops with pine. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is bitterness. Overall a good beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours beautifully with a medium beige head and a rusty orange body, smells lovely of fresh citrus hops and a bit of sweetness. So the taste nearly had to be a dissapointment. Its good but like every beer I’ve been drinking from Brew Dog It’s not balanced, and the wrong ingredience is the caramel malt I guess. It’s absolutely possible to feel the strong taste of alcohol, but the great amount of hops still makes this beer enjoyable. It’s bitter, in a good way.

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.
