Pour from can into pint glass at Brewdog Camden Town. The second you pour it’s a full blown herbaceous, tropical fruit blast! Lovely golden orange pour, tight Lasting head, superb resiny, sticky citrus, hay, medium to strong malt spine with some nice caramel hints, laying bitterness on the palate. ABV is masked.....very nicele done.

Daase> Gammeldags duft af s’dlig malt og humle. Bringer tonsvis af minder frem. Super laekker oel med et rigtig flot humlebid og en soedlig maltbase. Hvad ved jeg bare en god oel selvom den ikke er helt frisk.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour from a 16 oz. can, consumed on 2-28-14. Dry, clean smell features biscuit, shortbread cookie, caramel, and mineral scents. Nice but underwhelming aroma. Pours a clear bronze with a large amount of long-lasting, cream/light-taupe-colored head. Produces good, thick lacing. Good-looking beer. Sweetness dominates the taste. Candy, apricot, strawberry, and watermelon flavors. Syruppy and excessively fructose-esque sweet. Black pepper spice. A bit of alcohol bite in the back of the throat. Pine dry finish. Medium body. Soft, frothy, and a touch lively in the palate. Much less substantial in terms of palate effects than I expected. This is the second from a four-pack that I consumed. I quite enjoyed the first one, which I had just a few days ago, and I estimate I would have given it a 3.7 to 3.9. I’m not sure exactly what made me appreciate this one so much less. I purchased the pack recently, so it shouldn’t be due to diminishment of the hops. I have been on an IPA (and its relatives) kick lately, and maybe Deviant Dale’s doesn’t hold up well against strong competition.

2014/02/24 - Pours a clear, burnt orange-amber colour with a think, foamy off white head that lingers and leaves moderate lacing. Aroma is grapefruit, floral hops, grass, pine and tropical fruits. Taste is a sweet caramel backbone with notes of pine, grapefruit and tropical fruits. Mouthfeel is medium with smooth carbonation and a bitter and juicy finish. ABV is well hidden. Very enjoyable.

Love the slogan - "SIPPIN' ON A TALL BOY." My wife and I buy tall boys in te summer and smoke cigars while we just chill in the sun. This will be perfect.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cold can, 3 months old, into a tulip. Orange with a red hue, clear, sparkling, a cm of foamy head, full coverage on the lacing. Looks decent. Smell - pineapple, sweet and malty, hops, grapefruit. Body is medium, quite smooth, carbonation lowish. Taste - sweet caramel backbone, pine, pepper, very crisp. Mild bitterness, not sharp and no alcohol noticeable. Still drinking really well after 3 months and being shipped halfway across the world - this is a quality beer.
