Vaiz (3336) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - SEP 7, 2012
Hazy orange. Aroma of spices, laurel, pickles, stew. Flavor is sour spicy and quite thin. Great to make meat stew, but hardly nice to drink

TheCametron (1780) - CZECH REPUBLIC - SEP 4, 2012
Keg at Brewdog. Over cold. Hazy Amber with no head. Red berry Red wine nose. Tastes sour. Not sure how much that was the intention but it’s disconcerting in an IPA challenge. If you’d presented me this as a Belgian sour challenge, I’d have been more sympathetic. Pretty poor.

jamestulloch (1351) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 4, 2012
Aroma: Very minty - it smells like toothpaste! Some black pepper.

Appearance: Clear amber body. Holds its head less well than the BrewDog version - it disappears almost immediately. Light carbonation. No lacing.

Taste: The spearmint is, for me, far too overpowering. Sour flavour. This is pretty horrible, unfortunately.

Palate: Thin, watery body with a slightly oily texture. Prickly carbonation.

Overall: Brilliant experiment to brew a beer without hops - definitely something different! The BrewDog version is definitely better than this. Sadly, Flying Dog have come up with a cross between beer and a minty mouthwash - truly disgusting.

RichTheVillan (2766) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2012
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; drank shortly after the brewdog offering. They pour almost the same colour amber/red but slightly cloudier, lively head disappeared rapidly. This has achieved more bitterness than BD and a better mouthfeel but the flavour is odd like a puncture repair kit patch. The BD edges it. What are they going to do next?

tommann (2704) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2012
355ml bottle. Pours dark gold with no head. Aroma is lemon, rosemary, elderflower and other herbs. Taste has rosemary, elderflower but also a bit of sick. Lemon on the finish.

SimplySike (851) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 1, 2012
355ml. Bottle. Poors cloudy orange/brownish with no head. There are white flakes in it. Aroma is sweet, peache, ginger, herbs, citrus. Taste is citrus sour, hint of sweet, little bitter. Mouth-feel thin. First of the 2, don’t like the sour.

teorn88 (1923) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2012
On tap at BD Camden. It pours a hazy golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is an amber ale on spices. Some caramel, grass and loads of sage, mint leaves and other spices. Taste is similar: some nuts, grass and sage. Lots of spices in this. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. Overall, a lesser attempt than the BD IAR to me.
