3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. It’s a clear, copper colored beer, a beige head sits patiently on top. The aroma has lots of piney, resiny hops, some peaches too, leaving the malts in the far, far back. There’s some malty caramel sweetness in the flavor, balanced, or rather drowned (in a nice way), by piney hops giving a certain bitterness. Medium body. I could wish for more bitterness in this one, which is certainly the best beer I’ve had at such a low ABV. 100521

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. (Sampled November 2009) coppery orange brown color with a thin tan head. Loads of grapefruity hops in the aroma, with a decent amount of balance from the malts. Minerals in the flavor in addition to some of the citrus hops. Clearly very bitter, and different. I give a lot of credit to Brewdog for how drinkable I found this extreme experiment.

Redish color. Aroma is metal and hops. Taste is quite unbalanced, bitter and dry. A bit boring.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Gnarly beer. Good amount of dark roast to it - aromas of chicory. Mouthfeel is a bit thin, but not surprising for the ABV. By far the most flavorful low alcohol beer I have ever had.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 13/20
[330ml bottle, Cornelius Beer & Wine, Edinburgh] Quite a dark russet pour, aromas of hops, blackcurrant fruit and a bitter astringency. Initially a real assault on the palate, as a bitter bomb it’s like drinking pure hop juice, but after a while you adjust and start to get used to it. The problem is, having a total lack of alcohol there’s no sweetness to offset the ‘hops n’ water’ and it never stops being extremely bitter. As an Anti-Portman Group protest beer it delivers – but it’s my tastebuds that are doing the most protesting. [02/11/2009]

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Deep brown pour with a very light head. The nose is herbal and very spicy with a lot of soft caramelly maltiness. Pine and lots of bright hops. It’s very thin-bodied (as might be expected) but has a lot of pine and citrus. A little bit of resinousness. Intensely bitter with little else to balance it. It’s pretty interesting, but I’m not sure I really dig it.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. The IIPA is definitely double IPA all the way, though there is a surprising syrupiness to it, though one that is not at all sweet. Unsurprising, considering this is basically a hop tea. The flavor, well, lets just say you shouldn’t even put this in your mouth. The bitterness is out of control, with all hop aromatics lost in the watery mess. There is literally nothing to taste here but bitter. Blech.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Super earthy floral hoppy nose, light citrus, a good dose of toast and iced tea but in this sense its good. Pours amber, nice lasting thin head, light lace. Iced tea, a shit ton of hops, dry with decent bitterness. 1.1 percent! Yes! Awesome!
