650ml bottle, pours golden brown, a bit cloudy and murky, with a small white head. Nice malt backbone of caramel, sweet to start but a massive hop kick of pine and citrus. The finish is long and bitter. Carbonation average. Palate is oily.

Hazy gold with a good white head. Palate is smooth with fine minerally csrbonation. A light malt base, little cream. Touch of floralness. Little skunk and then robust citric peel bitterness. Fijishes semi dry and showing more hop skunk and bitterness. Hangs together quite well.

UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 22 Oz Bomber. The beer pours to a deep cloudy golden color with a citrus aroma. The taste was smooth & well balanced. The flavor had more of a IPA than a pale ale to me. Overall a very good ale.

Garrold (5269) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2014
Bottle from Brewdog, Leeds. Lightly hazed, golden colour. Butter tinged, thin, tight, white head. Nice looking beer. Dark sugar sprinkled, ripe tangerine. Dried (although the Missus maintains fresh (like it matters)) apricot. Some lemon sherbet spritz. Taste is an initial sweetness, followed up straight away, by a middle of the mouth, citric, pithy, bitterness. Smooth, slightly gloopy palate. Pithy bitterness on the finish. And the apricot thing... actually, it probably does matter. That’s why we do this?

Bottle, pours golden, nice nose pineapple and fruit bread with an ever-so-slight funk/sour nose which worked well with the fruit. Big sweet apricot on the finish for me and the more i had of it i could slowly but i could after much searching find the raisin, which is a pity because i wanted more.

allmyvinyl (10613) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 8, 2014
Bottle at Craig’s. Pours golden with a thin white head. Fruity aroma, passion fruit and grapefruit, golden syrup just about there, but no raisins. Bitter taste, clean finish. Not bad.

4.1
McNeillR (2315) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 7, 2014
Murky floaty golden, really odd visible sediment inside...and a decent bright contrasting white film to decent ringed head. Bright Crunchy Nut sweet cereral, keen enough hop in the nose. Lovely sweetness throughout wrestles a tupperware lid plasticyness on top of a mealy wholesome hop. Wee bit of a dragging bitterness, decent enough peppery/foamy carbonation combo. Finish is sweet, moreish but not over powering. Much nice.

Bottle, February Tasting, Brewdog Edinburgh

BeerandBlues2 (13308) - Escondido, California, USA - JAN 17, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours lightly hazy orange with a medium, frothy and foamy off-white head, medium retention with sticky lacing. Aroma is medium honey and biscuit malt, cantaloupe, peach and pear esters with moderate pine, resin, and spicy hops. Flavor is heavy hops and bitterness, medium sweet malt and fruity esters with a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.
