Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 30, 2013
THOUGHTS: Not too unusual or special for a pale ale. Actually my first impression was that it seemed like an IPA with a Double IPA balance. Very nice balance and transition, but not much of the flavors promised on the label. Some of the grape started to come out when it was very warm. The flavor became almost overwhelming by the end. I’d say cloying but it wasn’t just sweet. It was sweetness and bitterness both in large quantities. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a dark yellow to light orange with a large, off-white head that mostly diminished and left excellent lacing. The aroma had moderate caramel and sugar water; and heavy pine and citrus hops; The initial flavor was moderately sweet and lightly bitter; while the finish was heavily sweet and heavily bitter with fairly long duration. There was caramel malt, piney citrus hops, more pine hops, a little white grape juice, grapefruit rind and honey. The medium body was a little syrupy with fairly soft carbonation and not much of a finish at all. The flavors were a little harsh, but it felt easy going down.

22oz bomber at Maxs. Unfiltered golden orange-body. Foamy, frothy, patchy head. Big Golden Ale, with some odd raisin tones. Kind of an odd creature all around. Biscuity malt, oxidized a touch. Not so great. Probably a bad bottle from Maxs.

650ml bottle, pours golden brown, a bit cloudy and murky, with a small white head. Nice malt backbone of caramel, sweet to start but a massive hop kick of pine and citrus. The finish is long and bitter. Carbonation average. Palate is oily.

Hazy gold with a good white head. Palate is smooth with fine minerally csrbonation. A light malt base, little cream. Touch of floralness. Little skunk and then robust citric peel bitterness. Fijishes semi dry and showing more hop skunk and bitterness. Hangs together quite well.

UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 22 Oz Bomber. The beer pours to a deep cloudy golden color with a citrus aroma. The taste was smooth & well balanced. The flavor had more of a IPA than a pale ale to me. Overall a very good ale.

Garrold (1710) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2014
Bottle from Brewdog, Leeds. Lightly hazed, golden colour. Butter tinged, thin, tight, white head. Nice looking beer. Dark sugar sprinkled, ripe tangerine. Dried (although the Missus maintains fresh (like it matters)) apricot. Some lemon sherbet spritz. Taste is an initial sweetness, followed up straight away, by a middle of the mouth, citric, pithy, bitterness. Smooth, slightly gloopy palate. Pithy bitterness on the finish. And the apricot thing... actually, it probably does matter. That’s why we do this?

Lonick (781) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 13, 2014
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 (1325) - 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
