On draft. Pours crystal clear bright orange with a nice white head. Amazing hoppy aroma. Flavor is strong citrus, mango, and peach. Lighter body than the flavor and aroma let on. Great great beer. Palme (4816) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 9, 2012
0.65l bottle from BrewDog webshop. This one pours a golden orang-ish - almost glowing - bod with a nice medium sized egg shell-colored head. The aroma is lovely fruity with a good amount of piny hops. It’s really intense peachy with mango and a kiwi-like sweetness. Also something here that reminds me of summer-barbecue. Lovely and fresh aroma. A fantastic smooth and almost creamy mouthfeel that really sets the good old taste buds in action here. Lots of that lovely fruitiness in the aroma follows the flavors. It’s peachy and with pine cones, a fresh summer strawberry tone, honey and the finish is perfectly balanced between hoppy-bitter, passion fruity goodness and malt sweetness. Goes on and on in the aftertaste. A really nice one this. 01.02.2012 AndreaDel (56) - Rome, ITALY - FEB 8, 2012

Tycho52 (65) - California, USA - FEB 5, 2012
Location/Date: 22 oz. bottle bought at local grocery store on 2/5/12 (pre-Super Bowl, but post Chelsea/Man U - a perfect beer day!)
Appearance: Pours to a clear gold with a light white head.
Aroma: sure doesn’t smell like a fish! There is a citrus aroma with a balance of hoppy scent.
Taste: Not overly hoppy for a San Diego IPA. It doesn’t taste like it looks. Citrus/Apricot & delicious hoppiness and a definite fruity aftertaste.
Palate: excellent body, nice creamy front end with a great transition to a lingering finish that is slightly rough and tough (in a good way!).
Summary: A great example of the west coast IPA. It doesn’t need to hop it up any more to show off. I think it really does as the label says - it has a sting, but tastes great. larsga (7627) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 3, 2012
Medium offwhite lasting head. Amber body with strong carbonation
made hazy by little floaties. Strawy strawberry chewing gum
aroma with citric notes. Dry strawy resiny taste with citric
grassy notes. Mid-bodied. Dry resiny strawy aftertaste with
grassy wooden notes. Nice, but a bit harsh. Probably was much
better when fresh. Should rerate. (0.65l bottle, City Beer, San
Francisco.) BayAreaBeers (85) - Fremont, California, USA - JAN 28, 2012
Pours a slightly hazy golden hue with a 1/2 finger. Aroma is big apricot, mango, lemon. Taste follows with a super crisp mouthfeel. Very drinkable and damn tasty.
