350ml can, filtered, from Tesco. I didnt like the pre-2008 5.8% abv Snake Dog, and putting in extra abv doesnt make this version any nicer. Not enough malt character, and too much focus on the hops for my taste. Each to their own. This is, however, drinkable. While the resulting beer is a bit like drinking a technicolor yawn with its vomit odour, it is drinkable, so points for that.

Smells of dried hops and crushed peppercorns. Fabulous rich orange colour on pouring. A little disappointing for me, I thought it would pack more of a punch considering its high percentage and the brand. A citrus orange flavour subtly underneath the body of the beer but not hoppy enough for me. Nice enough and a few will leave you feeling it, but not a knockout.

A restrained IPA especially for a 7+% alcohol content. It has a pleasant aroma and appearance but fairly lackluster flavor. Above average but not exceptional. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can from Tesco. Pours amber with decent head. Rather malt forward for an IPA, rounded with some honey and wheatiness. Alcoholic taste rather pronounced. Branches out from the norm.

355ml can. Sweet malt up front into a citrus hop bitterness. This one did taste like it was 7.1% unlike some other IpAs of similar strength. Pretty good without being amazing.

scotty (1172) - SCOTLAND - NOV 14, 2016
Can from Tesco. Clean burnt gild in colour, white head is thin but lasts well. Lovely big hoppy nose, full bodied, but perhaps a bit out of balance, the alcohol is quite noticeable. However, it is a cracking flavoursome brew!

Zlotta (2603) - Hagen, GERMANY - NOV 14, 2016
0.355 l can from Biermuda, best before July 2017. Clear, golden amber with a medium large, frothy, slowly diminishing, white head. Sweetish, fruity and a bit resiny aroma of mango, orange jam, tangerine and some pine. Sweetish, quite fruity and slightly resiny taste of mango, orange jam, some honey and a touch of pine, followed by a medium long, moderately bitter, slightly resiny and a bit dry finish. Medium body, slightly creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Nice!

Puszka 330ml. Zloty kolor. Piana biala,wysoka,opada dosc szybko do pierscienia.w zapachu dominuja cytrusy i owoce tropikalne. W smaku moim zdaniem bardziej owocowe niz cytrusowe. Sosnowe nuty gleboko w tle prawie niewyczuwalne. Alkohol dosc wyrazny co daje niezbyt przyjemny posmak.
