3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy orange with light head. Smells slightly funky and a bit soapy. Not very hoppy besides some earth. Balanced maltiness with bitterness. Quite full but not too special

Stockholm Beer & Whiskey 2012: Trevlig fruktig doft, smaken är fyllig med tydlig kola och humle.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Jag tyckte att det här var en lite märklig sak eller snarare öl. Kroppen är stabil och smaken är god men framförallt intressant. Smaken bär inslag av fruktighet och lakrits, beskan är dov och mörk, och ganska ihållande också när man tänker efter.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours cloudy orange with short off-white head. Aroma is very fruity, with honey, blossoms, ripe mango. Taste is sweet up front with a very balanced bitterness. Full bodied, creamy. Probably to match Yin...

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle (from Brewdog.com, 330ml):
Tropical fruit aroma up front and closely followed by some pine and grapefruit with touches of citrus, orange and from right out of left field, a little caramel as well. Hops, spice and alcohol and closed out with some subtle malts.
Cloudy, bright orange to red colour with some sediment in the glass and a thin, wavy foam head.
Tropical fruits, apricot and orange mixed with a background alcohol taste and a lot of spice to begin with. There is a good hop character and lots of pine and grapefruit flavours along with some caramel and peach.
Full bodied and smooth with a nice alcohol burn and a fruity, sweet bitterness and creamy, slightly bitter finish and a good balance.
This one was an excellent beer with a lot of depth and character and ended up being a lot easier to drink than I would have imagined. It was definitely a strong beer although I didn’t think it felt like a 10% one with at least some of the alcohol hidden and there being a good balance between flavours.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
The aroma is pretty straight forward with citrus pine hops and caramel malt. The appearance is deep cloudy amber with a small head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall a well crafted beer but nothing new here until you mix with Yin then it really shines.
