mutz (622) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 7, 2013
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.

garthicus (2712) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 25, 2013
Bottle. Appearance: clear caramel, no head. Aroma: super malty, chartreuse, pumpkin, rosemary, mint, flavour : rosemary, mint, chartreuse, spices. So odd. Good though.

BierFiend (248) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 19, 2013
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.

ansjelaah (1500) - Westelbeers, NETHERLANDS - MAY 19, 2013
Tap @NBF’13 oranje en niet heldere kleur, ruikt en smaakt naar PEPER, kruidig, prikt op je tong, licht fruitig smaakje, maar de peper overheerst de smaak

DutchDrebus (4250) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - MAY 19, 2013
Tap @ NBF13. Very hazy, opaque orange with a medium, creamy white head. Smells a whole lot of pepper. Way too much. Blows away all other smells. Tastes bizarre. A mix of non-warming peppers and green twigs/leaves. Herbs. Medium body, soft carbo.

mansquito (3513) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAY 15, 2013
New Beer Distributors, NY 355ml ($3): Pours a weird cloudy orange with no head. Aroma is ginger, juice, and more ginger. Taste is a bit sweet. Heavy ginger undertones mixed with a berry flavor. This doesn’t really taste like beer. It wasn’t bad, but I think we need to experiment a whole lot more before hopless beer takes off again, which I hope that it does. Perfectly drinkable though and alcohol is covered well.

sebletitje (6859) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 6, 2013
33cl bottle side by side with the Brewdog version. Orangée trouble, col jaunâtre disparaissant vite. Arôme donne de suite le rythme avec un bouquet généreux d’herbes et épices. Le laurier et romarin se font bien présents sur un zeste de pelure d’orange. Parfum est agréable avec en effet pas de houblons et une versions dont le malt reste bcp plus en retrait que la version de Brewdog. Palais est ici aussi poussé sur les herbes et épices avec le romarin et laurier et une subtile pointe de baies de genévrier. Le tout domine le palais obstruant de ce fait les malts plus dans les notes carapils. Amertume reste modérée même sans les houblons. Note douce tirant sur un mielleux. Reste ici plus proche d’un gruut ancien. Sympa à boire.

ShaneJ (564) - AUSTRALIA - APR 23, 2013
Bottle from Slowbeer. Deep copper, berries, cinnamon, nutmeg, taste is slightly dusty/musty. Not great, I think they come second to BrewDog’s version.

jmgreenuk (4794) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 19, 2013
Bottle from Stirchley Wines, Birmingham. Poured a dark amber colour with a bubbly, broken, thin. glass-hugging head. The aroma smells a little like ginger and spicy. The flavour is a little ginger too, but ultimately weak and watery on the palate. A truly awful beer really, but marginally better than the Brewdog version I feel.

Slipstream (2061) - USA - APR 18, 2013
Wow, why such low ratings? Too unusual perhaps? I liked it! Aroma of strawberry rhubarb pie, grass, a dash of lemon, and a touch of brett or other Belgian yeast perhaps. Superbly extreme brewing assignment - a zero IBU IPA - huh?? Which I guess means no hops? There must be an interesting blend of leaves and spices here. This would be a really nice summer brew. Pretty darn special to be truthful about it.
