Poors cloudy orange/brownish with no head. There are white flakes in it.
Aroma is sweet, peache, ginger, herbs, citrus.
Taste is citrus sour, hint of sweet, little bitter.
First of the 2, don’t like the sour.

On tap at BD Camden. It pours a hazy golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is an amber ale on spices. Some caramel, grass and loads of sage, mint leaves and other spices. Taste is similar: some nuts, grass and sage. Lots of spices in this. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. Overall, a lesser attempt than the BD IAR to me.

355ml bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours amber with very gentle bubbles and virtually no head. The nose has powdered ginger. The taste is more powdered ginger and some malty notes. The palate is medium bodied and balanced with a gentle finish. Overall, preferred the Brewdog one. This one is a little one-dimensional, that is powdered ginger from start to finish. mrtavora (27) - - AUG 31, 2012
A surprising good head for a no-hop beer, however it disappeared quite quickly. Orange to brown colour with a dominant grassy, herby aroma.
Taste: Awful. Medicine, liquorice and overpowering citrus taste that lingers in your mouth forever. The palate is pure orange peel.
I’m afraid to say that BrewDog had the best of these two terrible brews.

Draft at In de Wildeman. Pours hazy gold with a small off white head. Aroma of citrus, lemonade and a little chalk. Flavour is medium sweet and light bitter. Citrus completely dominates in a not particularly pleasant way. Light to medium bodied with soft carbonation. Would be a lot better with some IBUs.. mR_fr0g (13977) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2012
Draft at Brewdog Camden. Hazy orange with a decent off white head. Aroma is sharp grapefruit with grassy notes. I feel that Flying dog have tried to replace the hop bitterness with the sort of G+T bitterness with the Juniper. The falvour is somewhat dominated by this ingredient. I felt this beer was more flavoursome and most resembled an IPA. DnAuK (112) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2012
This is like a strong wheat beer! It's also quite sour & refreshing. The strength comes as a slight alcohol hit at the end. Not bad but not great. 1 up to Brewdog in this round I feel.

Off keg at brewdog notts. Offensive in its taste. So tarte, so sour, just bad. Not a fan at all. rjkreid (191) - SCOTLAND - AUG 25, 2012
Pours a very thin beer, with a feint head which disappears immediately. Has the look of a Cider as a result. Orange is the word I would use to describe this beer. Orange pith and cardamon domiate the flavour with a certain sourness the reminds one a lambic. Not the most pleasant to start, but grew on me.
