2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2013 Aroma is of rosemary and bay leaves (spaghetti bolognese or beef stew), but the taste is flat and bitter. I think the combinations of herbs clashes. Big disappointment.
Update: we let the beer breathe for over two hours. Afterwards, the taste was much better. I recommend drinking this at room temperature.

Bottle. Slightly cloudy with some sediment floating around. Quite spicey but in all honesty not one of their best. A bit dissapointing.

Bottle. IPA with spices is a good idea. Nice appearance, nice flavor. Would definitely buy more.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle. Amber with small head. Gruit style with plenty of herbs. Seems a bit smoother and more balanced than the Brewdog version. Perhaps a bit less distinctive, but I think the flavors here work a lot better together. I could drink a lot of this.

Like no other you better cook with all the herbs and spies to like this one. Aroma is sage,thyme and pepper. Full of flavors that are kitchen oriented. Very good beer but ones is enough for me. A must try at thanksgiving with the turkey.

Van de tap@ 24 uurs Maastricht. mberkleurig, de kraag verdwijnt snel tot een randje op het bier. Ruikt en smaaktheel apart, kruidig en medicinaal.
Dampo, pepermunt, peper, eucalyptus, menthol. Wat dun mondgevoel, wel apart op geproefd te hebben.

Pours golden orange with a fleeting white head. Smells of grass and spices. Tastes mellow, with spices, mint, and pine. Watery on the palate. Not a big fan of either of the International Arms Race beers, but I have to say that Flying Dog’s is better in my opinion.
