3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Hazy orange-amber color with a nice frothy head that fades normally and leaves nice webbing. Aroma is a cool balance of Belgian bubblegum and banana with citrus and tropical fruit. Taste is more Belgian dominant than the aroma. Bubblegum and banana overpower and there are just hints of citrus fruit. Candi sugar sweetness up front and a moderate bitterness. Medium body. Mouthfeel is sticky and dry. Decent Belgian IPA but wish the Belgian aspects were more subtle. And itís a bit overpriced I think.

Clear deep amber color, small steady off-white head. Rye, citrus and overriped mango in the nose. Medium-bodied. Sweetish, stickyness, pine, pineapple, mango and then bitterness and some alcohol. Sweet, somewhat American hoppy with some Belgian-style fruityness. Nice strong brew.

Medium sized creamy foamy head on top of a hazy beautiful darker orange colored beer.
Aromas of hops, herbs, cream, malts, nuts, some fruits like peach, apricot, some resin, creamy herbal/floral tones and some sweet flowers.
Flavour has lots of hops, herbs and fruits and some nice malty, chalky and bitter tones (to say it in short)...
Good bitter, nice fruity (like the aroma) and herbal touch, warm and light spicy, some flowers, some yeast, light chalk (which comes more forward in the aftertaste), some herbs and flowers, light malty and some crispy spiced floral tones.
Aftertaste is fruity, bitter, herbal, yeasty and light malty with a chalky edge.
Low carbo, creamy oily close tonsilky mouthfeel, medium to fuller bodied an a creamy thicker lse to oily texture.
I like this stuff. Cheap and tasty!

Keg at Brewdog Shepardís bush. Light amber orange in colour with a thin lasting off white head. Aroma is sweet lime and orange opal fruit, surburt and light dried fruits. Very strange for a BSA. Flavour is full nutty biscuit sweet malt, orange peel and firm rounded bitterness in the finish. Palate is lovely and full silky smooth. Slight tanin in the finish. Low Belgian character.

Keg @ BrewDog. Muddy amber brown, big foamy head. Big flowery yeasty aroma. Spicy flowery flavour. Bitter sweet aftertaste. Does not feel like a 10.5% beer. Donít normally like beer this strong but this is a good one.

@brewdog Bar Edinburgh. Hazy golden color with small slightly off-white head. Aroma is sweet, fruity and hoppy, hints of peaches, orange and some citrus. Flavor is like aroma but with a nice and balanced bitterness. Low carbonation with a full body and dry sweet bitter finish. :) Awesome beer!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bit less crisp and more malty than your typical Belgian tripel. Also a yeast thatís a bit too clean to work with these malts. The brown bread malts are nice but donít get much support here from either a fruity yeast or, better, alcohol balance. Bit dusty now. I do like the mouth feel, but overall itís disappointing.
