3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Brewdog Bar, Aberdeen. It pours a hazy straw yellow colour with a foamy white head. The nose is hay, farmyard, floral notes, straw and citrus fruits. The taste is of farmyard, biscuit, bread, lots of lemon, grapefruit, passion fruit, pine and spicy ginger towards the decent bitter finish. Quite a bit lighter than I expected, especially with the % and IBU it boasts.

Bottle. [thanks for getting me a bottle, joergen]
Pours hazy pale yellow with a firm, frothy, white head. Good duration. Aroma is lovely fruity hoppy. Good grapefruit, peach, apricot, lemony. Medium carbonation, very creamy and kinda fat mouthfeel. Flavour has a good dose of lemony hops at first, quite citric bitter. Some mild maltiness in the middle giving it a good mouthfeel. Long, lingering bitter finish with some grapefruit and peach. Lightly warming. Nice.
