4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2013 9/13/13 version. Pours a translucent, golden orange color with a finger length head that dissipates somewhat quickly and leaves a sticky lacing. Aroma is amazing. Tons of of overly ripe pineapple, some grapefruit, orange, papaya, mango, peach, more tropical fruit notes, pine, tiny bit of breadiness and sweetness from the malts. Taste starts with some bitterness, but more tropical and citrus fruits like pineapple, papaya, apricot, mangos, some floral qualities as well. Was already smooth on the front end, but then gets even smoother and creamier in the middle from the malts that somewhat balance it. Then finishes dry with more tropical and citrus fruits, as well as some pine qualities. Very smooth and crisp finish that cleans the palate and makes you want to take another sip. Has a slight sweetness throughout, which complements the hop characters and gives the hop flavors almost a gummy bear-like taste. High medium, oily body. No alcohol detected at all. From what I read, this beer is made with mostly flavoring hops and not many bittering hops. I agree with this, as there are just massive amounts of juicy fruits in this. Better than Ruination in my opinion. Well done. I may grab another one before it’s taken off the shelves!

By far one of the most incredible IPAs I’ve ever had the pleasure of trying. Great aroma and a fantastic taste that washes over your entire mouth and leaves you wanting more. Definitely fresh and definitely hoppy BUT not unpleasant or overly bitter on the finish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Brewdog, enjoy by 08.16.14. Amber orange, slight haze, lightly sparkling, big foamy white head. Aroma - lemon and peach, light caramelly malt character. Body - medium, spritzy, slightly foamy. Taste - grassy, corn, grapefruit concentrate, tangy alcohol, fairly bitter finish. Another ’Emperor’s New Clothes’ beer from the USA. If this was made in the UK it would get a far lower rating.

Bottle 08-16-14, Brewdog, Glasgow. Excellent aroma of pine, citrus, tropical fruit. Superbly well balanced, hoppy, pine, grapefruit, with nice malt backbone. Some warming from the alcohol, but very easy to drink. Basically an excellent California IPA.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Golden with white head. Served very warm thanks to the good people at Brewdog bar. Massive hop aroma, very piney and resinous, also notes I’d associate more with NZ hops, guava, melon, very little citrus. Taste is a bit more straight forward, mostly pine, resinous with a little grapefruit and poorly masked alcohol. Medium to light bodied with a bitter finish. I’d have preferred it to be chilled, even slightly, the beer was very warm. They could have taken some of the turds out the fridge to make room for all the Enjoy By

Enjoy by 16.08.2014, drank 23.07.2014.
Clear bright light orange with a thin white head. Aroma is thick, heavy, wet, juicy hops, fantastic.
The initial taste was less intense than expected, but the mid and end palate hits with thick sticky wet hops, oily finish, not too bitter, big big flavour, very fresh, very happy!
Amazing beer, say what you want about Brewdog, but getting this to Leeds in such a short time and into my hands is amazing.

Light bronze in the glass with a 2 finger head that disappears quickly. Aroma of pine, citrus and tropical fruits. Taste like a creamy peach desert in your mouth! Then the bitterness comes in and appeases the hop head inside!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
At a tasting, thanks Levi, smallish head, just a little hazy lightish orange with yellow hues, aroma of pine and grapefruit, malty biscuity flavour with strong herbal grapefruit bitterness. Straight forward and quite enjoyable.
