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 :-)

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.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.
