COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle and keg, occasional
previously available cask conditioned
"You know you shouldn’t."
Ingredients: Maris Otter, Caramalt and Munich Malt; Motoeka (Belgian Saaz) and Amarillo hops.
A titillating, neurotic, peroxide, punk of a pale ale. Combining attitude, style substance and a little bit of low self esteem for good measure; what would your mother say?
The seductive lure of the sassy passion fruit hop proves too much to resist. All that is even before we get onto the fact that there are no additives preservatives, pasteurization or strings attached. All wrapped up with the customary Brewdog bite and imaginative twist.

Dark golden/pale orange and clear. Good lacing. Some malt in aroma, as well as hops and papaya. Moderate bitterness, balanced with hints of caramel. Medium long aftertaste. A refreshing and well-balanced beer at 4,1 %.

Botella de 33 cl en el lupulo. 08-01-14 especiada y ligera con ciertos toques hervaceos. Color ambar bastante transparente. Poco Amargor final. Para tomar de tranqui una a tarde de calor en una terraza, sí la tienes claro!

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2014 Bottle 33 cl.
Nice big, white and fizzy head. Sparkling and lightly clouded yellow to amber colour. Sparse lacing. Grassy and nice hops, with some citrus. Feels maybe a bit overly lively in the mouth.

varanid99 (431) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 21, 2013
Gold, slightly cloudy with big foamy head.Lots of passionfruit on the nose, slight cough medicine smell too. Taste wise, lots of passionfruit, quite sweet malt, and bitter/sour finish.

Stilig Ale med lite bett i smaken avsaknaden av eftersmaken drar tyvärr ner betyget ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

djoeye (889) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 8, 2013
330ml brown bottle, 4.1%, b@Eurospar or Rema1000. Slowly diminishing pearl white head, dotty lacings, hazy golden body. Scents of spruce, hops, yellow apple, and faint hints of newly washed dog. Tastes herbal, spruce to grapefruit, or citric peel, on a backbone of herbal malts. Nice carbonation and serious to palate. Fresh too, a bit watery, but it seems necessary to make exactly that herbal freshness. Half dry ending with nice underlying bitterness. Lots of taste out of just barley, hops, yeast and water on the modest abv.

BiffNilsson (168) - Perstorp, SWEDEN - DEC 6, 2013
Ganska tråkig doft av jäst och blöt hund. Utseendet imponerar inte heller. Grumlig gul färg med ett skum som försvinner snabbare än snabbt. Smaken övertygar inte heller. Här går den "blöta hunden" igen. Klassisk alesmak med en bismak som inte faller mig i smaken. Fullt drickbar, men jag förväntar mig mer från brewdog.

Tomy63 (172) - Clermont-Ferrand, FRANCE - DEC 4, 2013
on sent un peu des agrumes et des fruits exotiques de la Punk ou de la Hardcore mais c’est plus léger, beaucoup plus de céréales ici. Belle amertume cependant. Niveau correct.

BMA (111) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 22, 2013
Pale and cloudy. Fresh with a touch of citrus. Soft and a bit thin. Taste of hops with a medium long bitter aftertaste.
