Can. Cloudy yellow-orange with frothy white head. The aroma has lots of citrus (orange, grapefruit, clementine), onion, piney and tropical fruits (mango). Bitter flavor, quite fresh although it's almost the BBD, lots of hops and lots of citrus (clementine, grapefruit), tropical fruits (mango), piney, very juicy, can barely feel the alcohol. Lively carbonation, medium-bodied. Great NE IPA. zvsn (2443) - ISRAEL - FEB 20, 2018
Can. Cloudy pale yellow big creamy head. Splendid aroma of fresh hops full of tropical fruits. Sweetish, fruity hops, juicy, mango, grapefruit, peach, pineapple, bitter finish. Medium bodied, smooth. Great. surething_ii (1114) - Šenkvice, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - FEB 19, 2018
Can from BrewDog online store.
Very good NEIPA. Pours hazy yellow with white head. Pineapple is well noticeable in aroma. Starts juicy sweetish just to turn something like grapefruit in the end. Well done. willisread (3948) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 16, 2018
Draft at Craft Brewed for TN Brewdog launch. Pours a hazy gold with a finger of lingering white foam. Dank, lemon, pine and prickly durian. Sweet, then some tropical fruit skin bitterness. Lychee comes out as well. Clean and crisp on the palate. Interesting tropical flavors from the hops I suppose. Maybe a little too much prickly bitterness. superspak (6375) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - FEB 16, 2018
12 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 11/1/2017. Pours opaque hazy golden orange/amber color with a 1-2 fairly dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big tangerine, lemon, grapefruit, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, mango, melon, guava, berry, citrus peel/zest, light pepper/pine, wheat, white bread dough, light honey, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great complexity and complexity of citrus/fruity/tropical hops and bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big tangerine, lemon, grapefruit, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, mango, melon, guava, berry, citrus peel/zest, light pepper/pine, wheat, white bread dough, light honey, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very mild pine, zesty, herbal, grassy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of tangerine, lemon, grapefruit, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, mango, melon, guava, berry, citrus peel/zest, light pepper/pine, wheat, white bread dough, light honey, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical hops and bready malt flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, creamy/silky/bready, fairly sticky, and slightly resinous mouthfeel that is fantastic. Zero warming alcohol for 7.2%. Overall this is a fantastic NEIPA! All around outstanding complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical hops and bready malt flavors; extremely smooth and easy to drink with minimally bitter/drying finish. This is one of the smoothest drinking NEIPAs I have ever had, amazingly soft mouthfeel. Extremely juicy, vibrant, and fairly dank hops; balanced bready malt backbone, not overly sweet/heavy feeling. A highly enjoyable offering, and spot on style example. Loved the hop bill.

Low in bitterness? Well, maybe for a nano second on the up take but then it smacks you in the face with terrible IPA bitterness, to say this: "This juicy IPA is low in bitterness, but full-bodied and smooth, enhancing the soft ripe fruit flavours" is simply just a big fat lie. Now mind you, this is JMHO. The smell of this is volatile hoopy hoppy ipa rubber laced perfume and the the look is certainly hazy, but I just see it as another terribly bitter IPA. Come on now, how could something styled as an IPA not be bitter, wouldn't that be an oxymoron, moron? Does have some co2 which makes it a llittle less mouth coating than a double IPA but it still tread into IIPA territory fer sher. Disappointing, misled by the description. Get with it BD. Will somebody please give me a cheap pale lager for chaser? Not impressed. Just another rude ass beer. HogTownHarry (7287) - Toronto (Harbourfront), CANADA - FEB 12, 2018
September 20, 2017 - The Draft House (near Chancery Lane) - keg draught. Cloudy pale gold with a diminishing off-white head. Aroma is pretty much all fruit - pineapple, unripe citrus, with green fresh hop bitterness - very very enticing (could wish for more bitterness, seeing as it's an IPA - 8-). The taste is simpler, milder with little alcohol presence - mostly tart fruit, with SOME green whatever resin hop bitterness. Light body and carbonation, lightning-quick finish, with a little emerging tartness ... needs to be bolder. Jyrsa (1029) - - FEB 9, 2018
A NEIPA from BD, such original. Hazy very light yellow with yellow tinted head. Haze, mango, citrus, pineapple. A hint of cereal malt, pine, citrus, mango. The nose is underwhelming but the taste is superb. A nice and slightly off-mainstream NEIPA. amEIREcan (9) - - FEB 8, 2018 does not count
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2018 Keg at Edinburgh Brewdog II. Cloudy, pale yellow color with good lacing and decent head. Slight banana, peaches and cream aroma only when swirled. Aroma was lost if the beer sat. Earthy grass notes at first then quickly the grapefruit, mango and straw come next. Not very bitter
