Remember the stuff we were promised as kids? The flying cars, manned space stations and jet packs? The malty and caramelly flavors of an amber ale melded with the hoppy punch of an ipa? The future is not far off – and may be in your own hands.

Bottle from Brew-Dog on-line store. Shared with Slothez, Superbowl session. Copper looks with a mid range beige head. Piney nose with notes of caramel and berry fruit. . Sweet malt driven flavour with some tidy hop bitterness lurking. Overall a pleasantly drinkable and above average amber ale.

rodenbach99 (3158) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 28, 2014
Bouteille. Un liquide cuivré près du ambré avec une mousse beige crémeuse. Un nez de caramel avec un fond de houblon. Une bouche simple avec une touche de caramel. Cette bière semble vieille. La finale est légèrement amère. Passable.

SlovakSniper (3169) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 7, 2014
Une bombe partagée avec rodenbach99. La robe ambrée est fière de sa tête qui génère une longue traînée. Au nez, le caramel est au beurre et les houblons sont passablement affectés par le temps. En bouche, rien que du sucre malté et des notes citronnées qui m’apparaissent comme une infection. Au palais, une effervescence un peu sauvage. En fin de gorgée, des notes de parfum mélangées à une douce résine.

Bottle from Brewdog. Pours clear dark amber with a big creamy off-white head. Nice hoppy resiny aroma, super inviting with dusty and cellary malts. Taste is light sweet clean & dusty malts, resiny bitterness towards the long finish. Good.

MartinT (7811) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 9, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Caramel/butterscotch notes pierce citrusy hops and doughy yeast, while mild acidity morphs into a peanut-like aftertaste.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A stable cloud of foam tops the murky dark amber.
-The acidic touch in the finish clashes with the resinous bitterness.
-Can’t tell if this is fresh or really tired (there is no date on the bottle...).
-Effervescence is rather expansive which, with the acidity, points towards an infection.
-Hops are also grassy throughout.
