#Mashtag 2014 - a beer for the people, by the people.
The #Mashtag concept is simple. We invited the public to vote on each aspect of the brew, from hops to malt to the special twist and even the label design, and from the thousands of possibilities this presented, the result is an imperial red ale, brewed with copious speciality malts, a global blend of hops, and blood orange, lemon peel and orange peel.
On the nose, theres a riot of citrus, in many forms, from orange pith to lemon zest, via lime juice and even lemongrass. Fresh, bright resinous notes blend with light toasty malt aromas.
The palate is intense with toffee, with tiny hints of tobacco smoke coming through in little bursts, but the star attraction is an all-out bitter orange avalanche. A slightly psychotic, orange-that-thinks-its-a-grapefruit character builds upon and intensifies the hop bitterness, squaring up against the rich sweet malt base. The result is a huge red ale with a drinkable quality youd expect in a beer half this strength.

330ml bottle from Good Spirits Co, Glasgow (3.50):
Dark copper amber with a clear body & a 1cm beige, foamy head that fades to half that after about 5 minutes.
Hoppy with resinous pine, strong citrus & orange notes. Theres plenty bitterness with some sweetness (caramel malts mainly) & faint alcohol soon after.

Strong bitterness with pine, grapefruit & citrus taste along with some orange Sweet malts & caramel come through, some alcohol as well.
Smooth, medium body & light-medium carbonation. Some alcohol but very good balance & plenty bitterness.

This one was an excellent Brewdog beer, possibly my favourite of the 70 + beers of theirs Ive tried. There was an excellent balance & wonderfully hoppy, bitter taste that went down a lot easier than it should have. This is definitely on of their beers that I would love to see brewed on a regular basis, or at least on a semi-regular one; Ill have to grab another couple of bottles of the stuff before its gone forever.

dogbomb (1156) - ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2015
Bottle. Dark rusty ale with a quickly thinning, though lasting, off-white head. Smells hoppy, oranges, tangerines, that brewdog sweet maltiness. Taste is surprising! Toffee, smoke, some over-ripe fruits - tangerines, oranges. Rich and sweet malts making this feel a little sticky and full. Incredibly "chewy" ale with lots of body and a drinkable, full flavour.

Lhev 330 ml. Aroma je velmi přjemn, sladce pomerančov s jemnm ndechem karamelu. Pěna je zlato bl, jemn, vysok a poměrně drc. Barva samotnho piva je rubnov. Chuť je velmi vrazn, m přjemn ndech pomerančov kůry s trochou alkoholovho mrncu, fini je vrazn kakaově hořk a podkladem hořk čokoldy. V stech pivo působ mohutně, m středn řz a je i přes svou mohutnost dobře piteln. Jedn se o velmi chutn, uniktn pivo, kter mě svou kompozic velmi potěilo.

Bottle. Clear ruby-orange color with small unsteady head. Aroma of cranberry, grapefruit, some pepper notes. Taste is medium bitter, some earthy and citrus notes. Finish is long, with nice load of bitterness. 9% ABV cant be detected in taste or aroma, only by thickness of body. Nice beer!
