Bottle, pours golden, nice nose pineapple and fruit bread with an ever-so-slight funk/sour nose which worked well with the fruit. Big sweet apricot on the finish for me and the more i had of it i could slowly but i could after much searching find the raisin, which is a pity because i wanted more.

Bottle at Craig’s. Pours golden with a thin white head. Fruity aroma, passion fruit and grapefruit, golden syrup just about there, but no raisins. Bitter taste, clean finish. Not bad.

McNeillR (1645) - SCOTLAND - FEB 7, 2014
Murky floaty golden, really odd visible sediment inside...and a decent bright contrasting white film to decent ringed head. Bright Crunchy Nut sweet cereral, keen enough hop in the nose. Lovely sweetness throughout wrestles a tupperware lid plasticyness on top of a mealy wholesome hop. Wee bit of a dragging bitterness, decent enough peppery/foamy carbonation combo. Finish is sweet, moreish but not over powering. Much nice.

Bottle, February Tasting, Brewdog Edinburgh

BeerandBlues2 (10616) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 17, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours lightly hazy orange with a medium, frothy and foamy off-white head, medium retention with sticky lacing. Aroma is medium honey and biscuit malt, cantaloupe, peach and pear esters with moderate pine, resin, and spicy hops. Flavor is heavy hops and bitterness, medium sweet malt and fruity esters with a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Scopey (8544) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2014
Bomber at BD Sheps B. It pours clear oranger-amber with a small white head. The nose is juicy orange, tangerine, nectarine, big flapjack character and toasted oats. The taste is bitter-sweet, tangerine peel, orange, raisin, light golden syrup, candied citrus peel, light toast, pepper and light alcohol with a bitter, somewhat citric finish. Good depth to it and rather well balanced. Fun and interesting.

JohnGalt1 - thank you for adding this! Golden raisin with lumps of light, creamy foam. Lots of lace. Smells real nice to me. Citrusy, piny, bitter grapefruit, a bit of peach, lighter caramel malting. I like the assertiveness of the nose. Taste follows suit nicely with bitterness well balanced with a solid crystal malt background. The hops are resinous, and carry some pine needle, a bit of grapefruit pith, lemon rind and a touch of cattiness. Medium bodied with lighter carb. To be honest, this reminds me of Duet from Alpine, a really nice beer. Well done Elysian - after November’s absolute strike out, this was nice. Serving type: bottle 12-22-2012

onceblind (5232) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 30, 2013
Cloudy golden with a thin persistent foamy/rocky white head. The nose kinda reminds me of Christmas, with spruce and pine an a bit of burnt caramel, with a floral twang. The flavor is sweet with a bit of burnt earthy caramel, but quickly acquires a bit of floral and piney bitterness, and finishes dry-ish with a leafy hop bitterness and light caramel pale grain malt sweetness. Bitter and earthy-pale.
