Bottle at home, big thanks to Fin for digging this one out of the archive for me, 03/11/14. Lightly hazed golden orange with a decent off white covering. Nose is bitter orange, Belgian yeast esters, light oxidised notes but not too off putting, straw, mandarin. Taste comprises candied fruit peel, bitter orange, more Belgian yeast, lemon rind. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with hop bitterness and Belgian yeast licks. Decent enough, has held up fairly well.

Stale hazy pale light gold and very little head. Nice eggy skunk. Creamy lemon, nice and busy schnappy bitterness and fruitiness. Slimy yet plays out fairly crisp. Clean and smoothly bitter finish. Has done a fair shift since bottling.

Bottle from the Garvie Cave, Beers Of My Youth Tasting

UPDATED: SEP 12, 2014 Re-rate bottle at Craig’s. Hazy, more Belgian. Up a couple of points. Keg at Brewdog Edinburgh. Memory banks rate. I couldn?t tell the difference between this and the standard punk, especially given the quality issues they were having with normal punk at the time! (est. July 13)

Finn (6291) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 18, 2014
Fra kran på Bishops Arms, Örnskjöldsvik 31 Okt 13. Aprikosfarget. Uklar. Høyt tett skum. Sitter som en rullgardin til glasset. God fruktaroma. Syrlige plommer. Smaken er mer på det jevne. Litt metallisk - men fruktnyanser kommer gjennom.

På fat @ Ölrepubliken, Göteborg. Dimmig guldfärgad med vitt skum. Ananas, persika, blomster och tvål i doften. Tunn kropp, svag beska, medelsötma. Tropisk fruktighet, örter och citrondiskmedel i smaken.

Classic citrus hop nose. Rich malt, nice fruitiness, pine hops, sour finish. Nice malty IPA, quite different from your usual Brewdog hop bomb

BitchPls (763) - FINLAND - SEP 28, 2013
Clear copper beer with a small white head. Excotic fruity, citrus fruit aroma. Quite dry and earthy flavor. Not sweet at all. Very special and an unordinary IPA.

Hermod (6495) - Vantaa, FINLAND - SEP 23, 2013
On tap @ Rotterdam,Hki. Hazy amber, thick frothy head. Sweet, citrusy aroma, berries, hops. Flavor similar with yeasty notes as well. Punk ipa, sweeter, but still recognizable. I like this one.
