1.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Appearance: Pours a hazy yellow gold with a white cap of head.
Aroma: Wrigly chewing gum. Double mint and or big red. I know one is mint and one is cinnamon, but it goes back and forth from those two particular odors. Also some dog shampoo.
Taste: Selson blue, pine, earth, mint.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied.
Overall: In war, nobody wins, and in the case of this “Race” or “War”, we are all losers. This was barely drinkable, and I enjoy a good spiced/herb vegetable beer. The BrewDog version was even worse and stopped mid way through the tasting notes.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
"You can really taste the kale!"
Deep coppery color. Thin tannish head. Odd, vegetable and herb flavor overpowers the ale. Slightly bitter, but more like raw broccoli than hops. Pine needles and pepper are in the mix as well.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from SB. I rated BrewDog 2.1So I am still curious: can You make an IPA without any Hops and without any bitterness at all? This is also a fruity variance of "beer", with some ginger in taste? but to answer the Question above; NO! And Who won the race: it is a draw.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured a mostly amber body with a smaller foamy off white head. Aroma of dough, wet bread, berry skins, touch of alcohol. Thinner body with stronger carbonation and a watery mouthfeel overall. Flavor actually makes the aroma seem good, notes of rotting berry, spoiled dough, bad fruits and a touch of menthol. This is bad.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy apricot color with a thin white outer ring of "head". Aroma and taste are weird and mostly made of oxidized malt, and some cloying herbal sweetness (almost like stevia). Not sure what this is but it is not an IPA with or without bitterness. $4/12oz

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.
