2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
660ml bottle from Bradley’s. Pours a clear syrupy gold with a thin white head that dissipated relatively fast. Lovely appearance in the bottle itself though, gorgeous design! Aroma is strange, with green vegetables prominent, but grass and light tropical fruits lingering in the background. Taste is worse, with a light grassy sweetness followed by an astringent bitterness, that just tastes, well, bitter. Abrupt bitter finish, quite dry and with lively carbonation. Very surprised to get a poor beer from BrewDog!

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Orange with a small head. Not as hoppy as I had expected. Medium body but the lack of hops put me of a bit. Still better than a lot of other beers so why am I moaning. Perhaps my expectations where too high.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear amber body, small white head. Mellow bittersweet aroma with lemon, caramel, grassy and dusty hops, blackberries and leather. Full body, perfect carbonation. Flavour has blueberries, coriander, orange, alcohol, a hint of liqueur. Unique and exciting.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ Chmielarnia, Warsaw. Well, it’s an example of classic british IPA, it’s not like a typical Brew Dog beer. Orange/amber colour, pours with medium, nice head. In aroma there is a lot o caramel, buiscuits and another malty aroma with some light hoppy herbal note. For me it’s a little bit to sweet, bitterness is ok, but I would prefer it to be more intensive. It’s not bad, just good, old style IPA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle@home. Poured hazy orange, with an offwhite lacing head. Bread, caramel, nuts, honey, raisins in the sweet, fruity nose. Yet, the aroma has hops, citrus, dry, almost tarty, a completely different character. Dry finish with caramel, hints of vanilla. The 200 year old recipe does not disappoint, good one.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Roundhouse. Looks great. Very musty, yeasty hop with dry finish and a bit of sweet hard candy flavour. Lots of English hop character but dialled up to 11.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Roundhouse. Hazy bright orange pour. Slight spicy hop aroma with a bit of sweetness. Taste is unusual - big DIPA but with English hops instead of new world. More crisp, bitter, spicy. Less pine and tropical. Crisp finish with a bit of booziness. Better than I expected - probably not a repeat but definitely worth a try.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
is bottle contains an India Pale Ale from a bygone era. An era of towering sailing ships, burgeoning empires and world shaping beers. This is an ale hand crafted with British malts and English hops to recreate the epic IPAs that were sent on monumental ocean voyages from England to India by sea in the 1800s.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours cloudy Amber with a White head. Aroma is intensely hoppy yet somehow dull. Flavour is also swimming in hops but with a sullen earthy character that doesn’t exite. Grass and Hay. A nod to what IPA used to be. I prefer what it is now.
