Amber body, nonexistent head. Decent herbal and spicy aroma with caramel, toffee, clove and other spices. Sweet flavour with spices (mainly clove) and caramel. Interesting but not that impressive.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Orange golden color, cloudy. Orange, juniper and peppermint in the aroma. Malty sweet, very spicy flavor with peppermint, juniper, red berries and laurel. Spicy floral bittersweet aftertaste. Not my idea of an IPA, but tasty enough.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
Tastes and smells like 7 Up. I am not a fan. Do like the dryish palate and body. Too much ginger for me.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the Mullingan Grocer in Dublin. Pours a light amber gold with minimal head. Aroma is cinnamon and clove and other spices. Taste is very dry. Sweet and syrupy up front with a thick mouthfeel. finish is bitter, but only subtly so. Very interesting. No more than one on a special occasion.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Flattish looking browny bronze beer. The aroma is herbal, gingery and lavender. The flavour is gently bitter, herbal and ginger like with a vinous touch. Overall quite a strange tasting beer that lacks the best things about a beer.

Pours a an amber colour with lots of resin in the bottom. Very little head. Slight aroma of herbs. Whatever this is supposed to be its not very good. Would not have this again.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nov 2012 - bottle. Sweet tasting. No hops, so no bitterness. Not very nice, but OK and a lot better than the Brewdog International Arms Race attempt. They’ve captured some of the resin that hops brings. Wouldn’t have again.

Comparing the two beers like it should be probably be. Thy both smell heavily herbal. The black label even unpleasant. But at the taste the flying dog is slightly favorite. But both are not my kind of beer for sure.
