1.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. A cloudy orange-amber coloured beer with sweet orange blossom, floral, vanilla and ginger notes and a slight sweet and sour finish. A strange and not particularly nice flavour.

Det här var en märklig öl med en märklig doft och en märklig smak. Kroppen är förvånansvärt tunn med tanke på alkoholhalten och smaken är något söt, syrlig och unken. Slutsats: märklig!

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Hazy amber liquid with medium off-white head. Aroma of spices (pomerance, rosemary, cinnamon?), bisucit, caramel and clove. Very spicy. Taste is dry and spicy... Spices! Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation. Just weird, not good at all. The big question is WHY?!

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Oh what horrors hath man wrought. Pours gold. No head. No lacing. No aroma. No resemblance to an IPA whatsoever. Tastes like a terrible, over spice/herbed pumpkin ale. Taste is grass with a dirt aftertaste. At least Flying Dog is consistent.

2.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from bottle-shop.co.uk
Small yellowish head, instantly disappearing. Lightly hazy orange colour. Aroma pineapple, grapefruit, orange, green apple, grass, overall fruity, fresh and quite tempting. Taste is hard to describe. Initially almost light heavy sour-tart, as if you lick a whole orange. Over time turns into medium bitter, very distant elderberry. The finish is long and literally earthy tart. Overall I think there is orange flavour floating over everything else, along with dirt. As it warms, also elderberry. This is very interesting, pity I can not say enjoyable. I must say this is much closer to IPA than the Brewdog one, but despite that I liked Brewdog better, they are my personal winners of the race :-)
