Taste is hoppy (pine/grapefruit) -- going for broke and taking no prisoners. Medium body. (7/4/7/3/14)

Lubiere (12802) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 6, 2004
Hazy brown ale with a thin head. Resinous hops and citrus flatters the nose. The taste is even more intense, with hops which coats the mouth, and with creamy texture, this beer is an excellent Pale ale. Goes well with a gruyere.

Christian (12716) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 19, 2009
Slightly cloudy with a lasting off-white head, leaving some lacing. Citrus and pine hops in the nose, with caramel malty sweetness and a hint of green tobacco. Dry hoppy flavour with some malt, and intense bitterness.

Scopey (12245) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2011
Bottle at Brewdog Bar, Aberdeen. It pours mahogany with a thin off-white head and low-moderate carbonation. The nose is wood, polish, resin, peach and pineapple. The taste is varnish, resin, grapefruit, lemon, lime, orange peel, watermelon, wood and some caramel with a moderate bitter finish. I found it a bit too thin and a bit rough around the edges. I am left feeling a little bit disappointed...
