3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle. Pours amber with only a slight haze, moderate white head. Aroma is bready malt and pine and grapefruit hops. Taste is pretty much the same, maybe a little earthy in there too. Body was a little thinner than I was expecting, but not too light. Overall, this was pretty much text book IPA. Nothing especially unique, just hit all the right notes.

Bottle at home 20/5 2013. Opaque orange, with a big white head. Hoppy aroma, with some grapefruit, citrus, grass and some sweetness. A clear hoppy taste, that lingers. At the price it is amazing.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Blonde dorée légèrement trouble, quasi-asence de pétillance, mousse presque inexistante. Bien houblonnée et épicée, caramélisée, arrière-goût fruité, un rien de douceur, petite sécheresse sur la fin. Première IPA pour moi, merci au boss du Malting Pot de me l’avoir fait découvir.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
5.6% 330ml bottle into a tumbler. Pours a clear golden colour with light carbonation and a quickly dissipating head. Floral notes and citrus aroma after the pour with the suggestion of a hoppy punch forthcoming. Doesn’t deliver the kind of hoppiness I was anticipating; more light and crisp with a bit of a bitter back end. Quite pleasant!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear orange color with small and quickly dissappearing head. Powerful aroma of bunch of citrus: passionfruit, mango and grapefruit. Incredible! Taste is also citrus and completed by malty sweetness perfectly balanced strong bitterness. Finish is long and really bitter. Fantastic example of IPA.

De chez brewdog je préfére largement la 5am, celle-ci sympa au nez mais on en retrouve moins en bouche

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2013 Bottle at home. Bought in ’Geers’ Oostakker that day, so I suppose it was the 5,6% edition. Since the 6% edition is retired. Shared with Mathieu87.
Appearance: clear blonde beer, small white stable head.
Nose: spices, apples, grapefruit, florar, amazing IPA nose, some mango.
Taste: a rather uni dimensional taste, bitterness is nice and long lasting, but I preferred the scent of this IPA. Very dry when drinking.
