Half pint from the draught menu at BrewDog Bar in Glasgow where it was perfectly served at a fine drinking temperature. Cloudy, apricot coloured body. Film-type layer, spotty lace. Fresh and dried fruity hops to the nose. Fresh citrus fruity taste with dried apricot beneath added by a modest touch of malty sweetness. Deep bitter ending. Very pleasing, 10.04.2012.

On tap at Beer Temple. Amber gold body with nice head. More cheese dairy nose. Bitter taste. Quite simple this one and perhaps too bitter for me. jamestulloch (4053) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 16, 2012
Aroma: Peach, apricot and tangerine aromas.

Appearance: Clear orange body with a cream coloured head. Medium carbonation. Good lacing.
Taste: Sweet fruit flavours with subtle pine notes. Even though the IBUs are the same, this tastes more bitter than the woody Motueka IPA.
Palate: Medium body, sticky mouthfeel. Fizzy carbonation and a dry finish.
Overall: Hoppy and fruity, but just a tad on the sweet side.
Last of the series tasted. This is very reminiscent of Hardcore IPA in my book. Similar grapefruit and mango flavours with a lighter malt body. I think though the lower alcohol content makes for an easier, if a little sickly sweet, experience. Fairly classic Brewdog flavours, so in that regard, less interesting than the rest of the series. teorn88 (7671) - Rimini, ITALY - APR 15, 2012
On tap at Brewdog Camden, London. Pours a bright clear golden color with a medium white head. Aroma is hoppy and fruity. Huge amounts of grapefruit and mango. Taste is similar, little malty backbone and aggrassive hoppy bitterness. Mango, peach and grapefruit are the stars of the show. Body is medium and carbonation is lively. Overall, an outstanding IPA with tons of fruity flavors. Amazing. WASW (50) - - APR 15, 2012
On tap at Brewdog Newcastle. Compared the Motueka, which I also had, it was a bit too heavy-hitting and unsubtle for my tastes. Nonetheless, it was an IPA by Brewdog so was inevitably quite taste. Very intense fruit flavours. JohnRMurdoch (4826) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - APR 14, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2012 Keg @ BrewDog Camden & bottle from BrewDog Glasgow. Orange brown colour, good head. Slightly sickly sweet hoppy aroma. Fruity hoppy flavour. Sharp with citrus fruit & hop aftertaste. Not the best of the series but still a decent beer. Bottle better than keg spacecube (1705) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2012
Citrus aroma, pours an almost clear amber. Well balanced ale with lots of citrussy fruits, medium body and a lingering bitterness. A tasty brew.
