3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
October 6, 2012; 6.5% abv, 341 mL bottle, lager glass
Aromas of citrus and pine hops are dominant. Formed head was a bit too pillowy to get a good scent. Pours a hazy honey head that is thick and frothy. Though it takes away from the aroma, this is a piece of art. Interesting malty notes - sweet and banana - like banana bread. A bit of sweet raisin in there as well. Surprisingly absent are the typical hop flavours. However, there is a resin finish that reminds me of the style. A bit thin, runny almost compared with the head. Nice light carbonation. Interesting take; very malt forward taste. This is a great beer with great character.

Pours a hazy copper colour with thin white head. Deep caramel malts back a lovely resinous aroma. Earthy. Smooth oily body. Malt sweetness blends well with assertive bitterness for a perfectly balanced taste. Smooth finish.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein leicht trübes bernsteinfarbenes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch nach Citrus, Blumen. Geschmack sehr malzig, fruchtig herb, leicht nach Kräutern.

12oz bottle served in a pint glass. Very good IPA, though from the reviews - I think my bottle was a little bit old. Not as fresh or hoppy as I suspected it would be.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Cornelius. Hazy amber body with a medium off-white head. Steady carbonation. Nice lacing. Pungent aroma of lime, honey, pine resin and furniture polish. Flavour of wood, honey and musty citrus. Medium body with an oily texture. Soft fizz. Quite sweet and malty for an IPA, but pretty tasty.

Keg at Brewdog. Amber brown, small off white head. Aroma is earthy hops, slightly pine. Taste is biscuity malt, light bitterness, caramel at the finish, feels quite dry. Bit sticky too though and touch spicy. Nice.

Draft from BrewDog Shepherd’s Bush opening night on 29 November 2013. Poured a bright ruby colour with a tight white head and good lacing. Aroma of redcurrents, brown sugar and soft fruits. Maple syrup sweetness on the initial flavour mixed with chewy malt and pine needle hops. Finish was a mix of sweet plums, molasses and bitter hop resin.
