pmuzz (400) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 28, 2012
Needs to be left open for a number of minutes as is way too much carbonation. Really enjoyable after a period standing, a solid beer.

JanLaursen (3122) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2012 Bottle at Brew Dog, Edinburgh. Hazy golden with a beautiful stable white head. Sweet citrusy and floral nose, subdued light malts. Taste is sweet and light malty, citrusy and floral light bitter finish. Watery texture, but medium body. Average carbonation. Tasty welldone, very aromatic. A little too sweet for my palate. 7 4 6 3 12

Scopey (6871) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2012
Bottle from BrewDog AGM. It pours slightly hazy light orange, with a massive white head. The nose is grass, orange fruit, creamy and sweaty sock. The taste is straw, resinous hops, orange squash, citrus pith, grapefruit, spice and grass, with a bitter-dry finish. Medium body and average carbonation. Not bad.

Bought it in a 50cl bottle in NZ. Nice golden colour. Good amount of froth , Bit too bubbly for my taste though. Very nice bittery taste typical in pale ales and accompained with a full body.

Pyobon (922) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 24, 2012
(bottle) Poured one pint of hazy amber beer and one pint of foam. Nice zesty grapefruit hop aroma. Light body and fizzy. Pleasant malt with lots of hop flavours, but not a lot of hop bitterness. Tangy grapefruit and some peppery spice. Some pleasant bitterness in finish. Overall a nice APA but spoiled by the ridiculous effervescence.

omega (698) - NEW ZEALAND - JAN 14, 2012
A good rich ale which has good flavours. Not overly hoppy, but you know you are drinking a good beer. Quite dry which means for Joe Bloggs not going to be a favourite.

Brenhophead (559) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 30, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2013 amazing 500mL bottle. Pours slightly cloudy deep golden with a small white head and a nice grapefruit/grassy aroma. Very nice resinous/fruity flavour with a sweet malty backing (golden promise?).

BenH (2333) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 5, 2011
From bottle. Pours golden with white head. Fruity hop aroma, pineapple and grapefruit. Taste is same with slight caramel malt backbone. Lots of hops on the taste, plenty grapefruit, vert tasty. Slight bitter finish. Good shit
