3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
33 cl. bottle split with Kraddel. Procured by him. BBF 10/10/2014. After the bizarre pils & hefe yeast combo in this series, they finally picked a yeast that makes sense with their choice of hops, malts etc. Bright amber but more orange with white bubbles. Smells of orange peel hops, herbal hops, overall sticky fruity with candy sugar, sticky pine hops. Tastes of the usual BrewDog hop mix, orange peel, herbs, candy sugar sweet, marmalade, lots of toffee, light grass, sweet pine resin,… Pretty sweet for the style. Light body, willing to bet that this beer differs very little from Punk IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the 4 pack. Gently fizzing golden amber with a generous bleached foam going the distance. Fragrant with lychee and guava hints; background biscuit and cinder toffee; stewed green tomato stem, peach, curry leaf and ground seed spice. Fine condition, low carbonation, excellent stewed Darjeeling and dunked biscuit character sprinkled with more exotic tropical hop. Grapefruit and biscuit linger with some booze. Rather decent, hop-fresh, stewed IPA- whatever the yeast.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
33cl bottle from Appellation Wines.
Appearance - amber with a nicely proportioned head.
Nose - oranges with a little bit of toffee. Just a touch of fresher citrus, perhaps grapefruit on the end.
Taste - definitely some grapefruit this time and some more toffee and biscuits. However, there’s a soapy note that kind of spoils it.
Palate - medium bodied and textured, a fairly fresh finish.
Overall - good but shame about the soap, which does spoil it.
