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.

JorisPPattyn (7816) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 14, 2010
Huge, very fine, just off-white head over chromate-golden, clear beer. Milky nose at first, with some faintly-familiar unknown herb. Then, nice hops with some C-notions impose, making it nearly IPA-like. Hops come out in the taste immediately, but peter out in a spicy, dry way. Revived with every sip, however. Light MF, creamy texture mainly thanks to the tenacious head. It lacks maybe a bit of alcohol and/or cakey malt to beef it up. Still, rather appreciated it.

dEnk (3734) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 10, 2010
Golden pour, medium head. Aroma is malty with faint hops. Flavour hands out some hop bitterness, but in a weird way.

DanielBrown (3737) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2010
Bottle from shop. Enticing slightly brisk, oily aroma. Nice bitter taste, with some orange and mainly seaspray hops. Dies in the aftertaste, leaving a wrapping paper trail. Nice.

Botella. Hazy yellow with nice medium well lasting white head. Lots of hops in the aroma, fruity and pleasantly sweet. Good mouthfeel indeed. Very pleasant fruity bitter citrus flavour with caramel and pine. Well lasting dry fruity hoppy finish.
