Rough day at work? Crack open a Five O’clock Shadow and be at one with your stubble. This American IPA is the real Desperate Dan of the beer world, hoppy uncompromising and goes well with a cow pie. Embrace your inner cowboy. Yee Ha!

Niksko (588) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 19, 2014
Pours a light hazy golden with some frothy white head. Nose is pineapple, fresh citrus, slight caramel. Flavor is classic american hops, loads of grapefruit, some pine, lime zest. Lighter side of medium body, fairly low carbonation for the style. Doesn’t taste like 7% at all, which makes it very dangerous. Very tasty.

330ml bottle A dry tasting IPA but somewhat disappointed by the lack of bitterness that should have been coming through from the hops for an American style IPA. Disappointed given the hype around this beer.

Half pint from a keg at Wandsworth Summer Beer Festival. Hazy light orange with a good foamy head. Very dry, grapfruit notes. In fact very, very dry. Still it does have something to it. Zesty grapefruit aroma. Just a bit overhopped for me.

ATulloch (201) - Aberdeenshire, SCOTLAND - JUL 23, 2014
Bottle from deeside drinks emporium. Pours a lovely hazed light gold with a nice off white colour head which lasts. Amazing hoppy aroma with orange peel, pine and grass. Lovely hop taste with hints of caramel with a touch of something sweet. Maybe peach? Nice pine aftertaste.

Gary (1809) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2014
500ml : Rich sappy hop nose -Orange zest .spice caramel. Looks good in the Duvel tulip bright golden color. On the palate Saud fruit is there with intense rich hop texture. Personally I’d like a dryer, more bitter finish, the character retains a sweetness without the kinda finish to round it up. Nice elements

calm_dreamer (160) - GREECE - JUL 18, 2014
Great lemon aroma, lemongrass, with fruity notes too. The taste has fruit, orange peel, bitter lemon and bitter orange. Has a body like fruit juice. Bitter long and mouth-numbing aftertaste of medium power.
