jeremytoni (3008) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - OCT 17, 2012
From a bottle poured an amber color with a fair amount of head. Odd hoppy malty flavor with a quick finish.

omhper (19792) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 17, 2012
Draught at O’Connor’s, Uppsala. Hazy amber, minimal head. Spicy sourish ginger aroma. Medium bodied with clean, limp crystal malt character and some syrup. Loads of pizza spices, gingery and lemony. Low bitterness in a finish with syrup and alcohol.

EdKing (1965) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2012
Bottle from my friend Mike. Colour is clear chestnut brown with a thin white head. There’s lots of white amoebic stuff floating in it which isn’t very appetising. Nose is more promising. There’s fresh ginger, ground ginger spice, caramel. Hmmm... taste is papery, flat tasting, cardboard, ginger, but maybe not so fresh, and an not altogether pleasant tang on the tongue like ear wax. Not great.

WeissGary (285) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - OCT 9, 2012
This is a cool beer but isn’t my favourite out of the two International Arms Race beers, I feel that they are both pretty inactive, I wouldn’t call them favourites or even ones I would go out of my way to revisit however they are quite interesting no less and a good bit of international fun between two amazing breweries. Orange/red body, little to no head, dried apricot aroma, quite a leveled taste really feels quite a dried out fruit taste, back end taste feels quite watery and particularly lacking the punch you expect from a Flying Dog brew however It is pretty easy to drink and it is still a worthwhile drink!

BeerandBlues2 (9984) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Bottle. Pours clear orange/copper with a medium, fizzy white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is citrus and floral hops, passion fruit, apricot, and peach esters with light straw and honey malt. Flavor is medium hops and bitterness, assorted spices, fruity esters, light malt and a dry finish. Medium-light body, medium carbonation.

JDBaker11058 (1334) - Maryland, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Appearance: hazy, marmalade orange with half a finger of off-white bubbly head quickly shrinking to a thin collar. Aroma: like panettone--bready and sweet, with notes of candied fruits, nutmeg, cardamom, allspice, then under it all a bit of citrus. Taste: lightly sweetened grapefruit juice, light brown toast, a hint of pine. Finish: flat, slightly syrupy, bitter, and almost oppressively dry. Notes: Holy crap this beer sucks. I was very interested to try it. A "zero IBU IPA" collaboration with Brewdog? That should be interesting. But it’s just…not…good. The aroma is actually nice, and would make a good holiday beer, but certainly not what you’d expect in an IPA. The palate is boozy and slick but distressingly flat, and it makes up for the ostensibly lack of bitterness with a biting, unpleasant dryness in the back of the throat. Drain pour.

wyzzywyz22 (1996) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2012
Beer Ritz, Leeds. Slightly murky dark amber pour with a fast fading head. Herby, clove/spice aroma. Similar taste with floral and burnt orange notes. Very muddled and barely drinkable.I would expect a lot better from these guys. A failed experiment. I made the mistake of buying 2 bottles as well thinking it was going to be really good !

scottw86 (1118) - Maryland, USA - OCT 6, 2012
Poured a slightly hazy amber color. Aroma is slightly tart with fruity and veggie notes. Taste has more veggies with some slightly skunky fruit flavors. Some lemon and honey. Ginger and spices in the finish. Not bad!

AxlLives (288) - Maryland, USA - OCT 6, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2012 12 oz bottle - pours hazy orange with fizzy white head, bubbles and diminishing returns. Fresh black pepper black pepper black pepper on the nose. Incredible amount of black pepper with an undercurrent of juniper. Medium crisp palate. No bitterness or bite whatsoever. Tastes of cool citrus fruit with touch of acidity at the finish. Pretty nondescript but for the nose of BLACK PEPPER! Great idea though.

leaparsons (8251) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2012
Bottle. Golden brown with little foam. Aromas are caramel and brown sugar with lemon and marzipan. Lots of vegetable with ginger and herbal notes. Flavours are dry biscuit with sweet brown sugar and herbal, spices. Quite slick on the palate. Not as good as the Brewdog version.
