Bottle from BrewDog online store (Nov 2013). Hazy copper-orange, 1cm lasting white head, floral/grassy/earthy hops, woody, pencil shavings, resiney bitterness, medium-full body, long dry bitter finish. Not a big, fruit/citrus driven IPA, more subdued, earthy, quite good. pentaz (1264) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 15, 2014
Bottle @ Yespr. Pours clear orange with a lasting small off-white frothy head. Aroma is grass, vegetable-ish, toasted malt, phenols. Taste is light+ sweet, bitter and very light tart. Body is light+, texture is oily, carbonation is moderate. Finishes balanced with lingering bitterness. simont1 (620) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 12, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2015 Yeah, pours orange with a nice head. Smell is kinda just not a lot, maybe some sprucy hops, and some honeyish malt, but not much. Taste is very crisp, and quite dry, a very sharp bitterness, with no real hop aroma except some grassiness to come with it, maybe the description of this doesn’t sound that great, but it isn’t bad, it actually is kinda good, just that it’s not an IPA that you normally, or atleast I normally sough for - extremely juicy with tropical fruit & hop bursted, this is not it, this is a nice balance between malt and a sharp bitterness which gives a crisp nice beverage.

Bottle, BBE 10/14, thanks bluus. Pours orange with a good, beige head. Aroma is quite malty, caramel, some citrus and grass as well as a tad of earthiness. Taste is dry, somewhat bitter. Malt-forward though. Dry caramel, orange marmalade, some earthiness. Pencil shavings, some citrus and grass. Full palate with decent carbonation. Feels more like an English strong rather than an Indian pale. Vignale (3960) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 12, 2014
Flaska från systembolaget. En malttung söt IPA med trött humle. En aning tall och grape, medelstor beska, men mest bara tråkig. Obegriplig utifrån Brewdogs ölportfölj och varumärke. Den punkiga uppstickaren har blivit en trött medelålders storbryggare.

Bottle. Semi hazy orange beer with a large white head. Aroma is malty with notes of herbs, citrus, black currant and licorice. Flavor is malty with notes of caramel, black currant, toffee and dried fruit. Very unique, but I like it. JimmyBoy74 (637) - Örebro, SWEDEN - APR 6, 2014
50 cl systembolaget. En ipa som nästan helt saknar sötman och de härliga citrusfrukter jag är van vid. Dock kommer denna med en rejäl bäska. Ok men inte fantastiskt. suurjuust (3674) - ESTONIA - APR 5, 2014
Slightly hazy amber, medium off-white head. Nose is malts, sweetness, metallic notes, hints of caramel, citrus and hops. Flavour is toasty malt, water, caramel, hops in the finish. Not bad, but a bit flat. martjoobolut (4947) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 5, 2014
0,66L bottle, BB 14.10.2014 (shared by suurjuust, thanks! ). Pours slightly murky amber with big white head. The head stays. Aroma is malt, caramel, slightly metallic, hint of pine and citrus. Taste is sweet and bitter, caramel, pine, citrus, and fruits. Finish is pine bitter and caramel sweetness. Alcohol is rather well covered. Overall: not bad, but was expecting more.
