4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma: The smell is citric and floral, grape-fruit with pine resin.
Appearance: This beer is slightly hazy, golden, an off-white head that leaves god lacing.
Taste: The brew has an initial caramel sweetness, then freshly squeezed grape-fruit juice, pine needles and resin.
Palate: Medium carbonation, small bubbles, soft and refreshing feeling, a medium body, a dry finish.
Overall: This is very clean and nice, well balanced but full flavors that really turns me on! (This is the new version, better than the can as I remember it)
Note: Bottle 330 ml. Reviewed 2011-06-06.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A hazy, orange-yellow beer with a medium and white head. The nose is strongly tropical, mangos, some papaiyas and fructose, enjoyable. Taste of tropical fruits, mangos, grapefruits, some pine needles. Medium bitterness, but enough and smoothly. The end is quite dry, piney and grapefruity. Medium bodied, nice carbonation. Enjoyable beer with nice tropical fruits.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Powerfull hop aroma with intense grape and mango with some pine to be found beneath. The taste is mostly focused on fruity hop. The malt is just subtle in the background as it should. It could however have done with more bitterness. It is light in body and has lively carbonation just as an IPA should. The finish however is a bit dissapointing, not as bitter and powerfull as it could have been. There is even some disturbing yeast taste in the finish.
A really nice IPA. Its not extreme in anyway but it is good example of the style even if it could have been more bitter.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
One of the first IPA’s that I’ve tried. Fair priced, always available and always tasty, even if it’s not the same beer anymore. It’s getting better though.
Good balance. Citrus, grass and bread in aroma. Some sweetness. Pretty big bitterness.

Bottle at home. Pours lightly hazy gold with a medium, frothy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is fragrant grassy, citrus, and earthy hops with cracker malt and peach esters. Flavor is heavy hops and bitterness, supporting malt, light fruity esters and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle): Pours a slightly hazy pale gold with a medium white head. Aroma of grapefruit, lemon zest, floral and slight tropical fruit juice character. Fruity hop flavour - lots of grapefruit, passionfruit with a nice subdued malty background. Just enough bitterness to make it a great session IPA.

Great IPA. Very drinkable for a brewdog IPA. I only expected more body and more bitterness. Still a great beer.
