Citrus dominated IPA with a slight astringency in the first sip that warns you of whatís about to come and an enduring bitter finish (IBUs 65). Back end taste and aromas of tropical fruits from the New Zealand Kohatu hops with Dana hops giving the sensation of being smacked in the mouth with a jar of marmaladeÖ. kinda like Bob Dylan on acid.
Malt: Maris Otter Pale, Crystal Malt & Bamberg Cara Aroma
Hops: Bravo, Cascade, Dana & Kohatu

McTapps (4566) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - DEC 28, 2013
Pours out of the bottle in a amber colour with low head and medium body. Nice aroma of hops and nuts. Taste of fresh but mild hops, nuts, pepper, herbs, oranges and thyme. Light body and light texture but nice anyway. Easy drink- and enjoyable.

MichaelAwesome (4566) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - DEC 28, 2013
Bottle shared with McTapps. Well, a bit watery and thun, but quite good work. Some hops mixed up with straw, hay and even sweetish caramel. Crazily deep with that low abv.

kermis (5729) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear dark golden with an off white head. Aroma of caramel, biscuity malt, light weedy and citrus hops. Flavour is light moderate sweet and light bitter. Missing any real hop character. Light bodied with light carbonation.

Great name. Looks fine. Fairly ok aroma but the taste is too hoppy for my personal taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

renffisch (843) - london, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 6, 2013
Bottle @ cbsc golden colour, no head. Very sweet orange nose, and a quite hoppy start but not as strong as the name suggests. It quickly flattens out in a very stale old nothing... Awful

Bammers54 (57) - Camberely, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 3, 2013
For a beer called hop dog this was a little restrained. Well made with nice balance and initial hoppy attack, however faded a little in the glass. It had good thirst quenching qualities, but somehow just didnít press the excite button

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2014 Aroma: strong malts. Appearance: light golden. Taste: slightly bitter. Palate: flat, light carbonation. Overall: too malty for my taste. Bottle at the Craft Beer Social Club, London. 2nd tasting: Aroma: strong malts, hay, caramel, cereals. Appearance: light golden. Taste: slightly bitter. Palate: malty again, yet quite light, light sweetness, then bitters, flat, light carbonation. Overall: much nicer from tap than from bottle. Pint at Bath Brew House, Bath.
