COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
5am Saint is The Holy Grail of red ales. We live in a world of disposable deities. Someone, somehow has managed to press that big, flashing moronic override button and we’re hard wired straight into the pockets of false idols trying to make a quick buck. Sadly, for a lot of people the same mentality applies to beer. But who’s to know what’s worth worshiping when monolithic advertising budgets have you sucked down the rabbit hole in the blink of an eye? At BrewDog we are on a mission to open as many people’s eyes as possible. Cast away any aspersions and let the crook of BrewDog be your guide in a whirlwind of conformity and mediocrity. Once this ruby liquid forms a foamy halo around your glass, you’ll never want to look back.
Malts: Maris Otter, Caramalt, Munich Malt, Crystal and Dark Crystal Malts
Hops:Cascade, Amarillo, Nelson Sauvin, Simcoe, Ahtanum, Centennial
Twist: Loads of late hops and bucket-loads of dry hops

Tom303 (136) - Northumberland, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2013
Nice dark mahogany colour, tanned head. Smells quite sweet and fruity. Taste is lovely roasted nutty caramel type thing again with some tangy frutiness and a nice bitter/sweet balance. Quite a lot going on with this beer. Another fine beer from Brew Dog

Obier (47) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - SEP 7, 2013
Herrlich frisches Citrus Aroma, leich orangener Schaum der schnell zerfällt. Leicht hopfig, wenig malzig, ausgewogen. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Garrafa 330ml. Cor âmbar, vermelho cereja. Pouca espuma, não branca. Aroma lupulado e maltado, com notas de frutas vermelhas. Gaseificada, paladar é maltado em equilíbrio com torrefação. Final amargo e refrescante.

allmyvinyl (10618) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 5, 2013
330ml bottle at home. Pours clear light red-brown with a pillowy white head, good lacing. Big piney and spicy aromas, some grass, fruit and nuts. A lot of hop bitterness, then dark sugar-sweet, maybe toffee. Bitter finish. Good.

3.6
DwarfeD (3513) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - SEP 5, 2013
33cl bottle at home. Clear amber/red with a medium white head. Medium body with ditto carbonation. Great balance between malts and hops. A very decent ale.

3.7
Pizd (435) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2013
(Bottle): Pours amber with a small off white head. Aroma of hay, grapefruit, peaches, tropical fruit juice and caramalts. Hoppy flavour with the citrus and tropical fruit notes following. Some malt and caramel elements but mostly a nice hop bitterness dominates, but not overpowering at all.

3.2
HampshirePhil (241) - Portsmouth/London, Hampshire, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2013

Good amber IPA. Nice combination of hops, fruits and a bit caramalt. And the Nelson Sauvin is amazing as always.

3.5
DCLawyer (2845) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - AUG 29, 2013
Bottle->shaker at RFD. Amber with small offwhite head. Caramel and malt with some light citrus hops. Brighter than most amber ales I have had, and pretty good overall.
