33 cL bottle. Pours cloudy orange with a fully gone head. Aroma is dense grapefruity and peachy, sugarish/dextrose malt sweetness. Alcohol dense, overly solid hoppy and sugarish dense dextrose. Burning alcohol and dark hops flavoured finish. Marko (5711) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 13, 2010
Tremendous, enormous thanks to TBone who shared this one with us! Poured a red-gold body. Appley aroma hops in the nose, some sweet maltiness too but mainly alcohol. Aromatic hopiness mixing with saltiness in the taste, definitively quite malty too, maybe some notes of caramel. The alcohol is warming. You can definitely feel that this is huge, maybe not this huge but what can I compare it to? Still, I don’t care much for beers with some kind of alcohol presence, and this one fits the bill unfortunately. Still, huge respect and again huge thanks to Timo! jesperhammer (4735) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 8, 2010
Wouw, this is alchohol. Bitter, and not just from the hops, but also from the alcohol.
This is not beer. The TNP was (not being scientific here).
I liked the TNP a lot, and I had hoped for something fantastic since I am an IPA guy. But dissappointed. Too sweet, too strong.
BUT brewdog - I am with you all the way:) madsberg (11770) - Søborg, DENMARK - MAY 11, 2010
Bottled. Orange/amber coloured. No head to talk about. Sweetness, spice, alcohol, herbs and flowers in the aroma. Flavour dominated by alcohol, herbs, cloying sweetness and some liqourice. Medium to full bodied. Heavily burning alcohol totally domintates the end. Not my thing. Thx. yespr for sharing. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - SEP 6, 2010
(Bottle, ericandersnavy) Pours a deep amber-ruby body with excellent legs. Aroma of caramel, grapefruit, bread, earth, grass, and alcohol. Flavor of pine, alcohol, and resin with dry, extremely bitter finish.

Gold/amber pour with white head and lace. Resiny hops and abv and a paint thinner kicker. Harsh like eating orange and lemon zest combined with pga and a chemical flavor and some sweet. Rune (12765) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 16, 2010
Not exactly pretty to look at with its cloudy, almost muddy, apricot coloured body under film-like layer. Hoppy aroma with a solid punch of alcohol. Taste of orange and apricot with strong but surprisingly well integrated alcohol. Bittersweet fruity ending with alcohol sharpness. Good for late night sipping.

Bottle, that i somehow talked Andy into slamming with me, ah good times. Pours a reddish amber body with a scant head. Wow big vodka like warming blowing off the glass, i think it was displacing air around it. Cool there’s some fresh hop tones here, green hop leafs, grassy note, maybe a touch of pine. I say maybe only because the etoh so massive its difficult to discern other flavors. A nice novelty, and happy i had the pleasure of sharing. jsquire (4489) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - DEC 18, 2010
I was able to try this monster thanks to a hand bottled sample from cgarvieuk. Clear amber color with no real carbonation, which I attribute to the vessel in which I received this. The aroma on this thing is intense, with lots of hairspray, peach schnapps, condensed grapefruit rind and a menacing hop resin alcohol. This first sip is really disorienting. This beer burns like Scotch. It is like hop brandy. Really intense peach, grapefruit, hop resin, honey, and oh so much alcohol flavors. There is something almost celery like in the back. I think my tongue is swelling. This is like drinking purfume. This is an odd drinking experience... Blairgus (4613) - California, USA - MAR 12, 2011
First sample was room temperature
aromas of citrus hop, grapefruit, strawberries.
looks like an amber ale, no head, no bubbles
hops are in the background and there are a lot of fruity aromas
thick but not as thick as TNP
very bitter, long finish
it should have been chilled
second sample was chilled
smells the same (great!) slightly fizzier and still burns my lips a bit (due to the alcohol)
definitely nicer chilled
maybe more strawberry flavour comes out and hints of orange now as well
there is soooo much happening in this beer but the alcohol makes it hard to sift through.
i could possibly buy the TNP again but not this. alcohol obscures the beer
