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.

bluejacket74 (1797) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - AUG 27, 2010
330 ml bottle. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours a slightly hazy gold color with about an inch off-white head. Head retention and lacing are both nice. The aroma is all tropical fruit and bready malt. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there’s some peppery spice flavor too. There’s also a lingering bitter finish. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it’s a bit slick and creamy with good carbonation. Drinkability is decent, too. Not a bad brew overall.
