500 mL bottle shared by Butters at the 12th Richmond Ratebeer Gathering on 9/18/10. Thanks! By the way, Butters Let the Dogs Out. Pours a clear copper color with a thin offwhite head. Aroma of floral and citrus hops, and some toffeeish notes. The taste is bitter citrus and leafy hops, and a bit of smoke. jyoungsbcp (6) - Limerick, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 25, 2010 does not count
Bottle shared by TomDecapolis. Tasted side-by-side with the Brewdog I Hardcore You.
Pours an orange gold with minimal head. Piney aroma with a good deal of fruitiness. Flavors of the same but a bit of metallic burn. I preferred the blended Brewdog version better. Very solid, but not spectacular. BeerBaboon (2095) - FINLAND - OCT 24, 2010
UPDATED: APR 12, 2011 Not much head. Orange colour. Slightly hazy. Very bitter and a little sweet. Grapefruit. Very hoppy with resin like flavour.
EDIT: toisella kerralla olut paljastuu myös hunajaiseksi, marjaiseksi ja kukkeaksi. Makeahko ja katkera. TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - OCT 22, 2010
Pours a hazy orange with a medium creamy off white head. Aroma of funky weed, pine resin and grapefruit, some caramel malt. Flavor of pine, grapefruit and toffee. armando629 (2456) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 16, 2010

Deep cloudy amber beer witha creamy off white head. Honeyish- spicy aroma with cinnamon and caramel, after a while the resiny pine hop aroma opens. Oily texture, honey and caramel, malt in the base of flavor profile, at the first slips the beer is a spicy one with cinnamon and caramel, honey, after that the resiny hop comes throught with a bittersweet feeling. Bitter resiny lupulin aftertaste.
Bottle. Poured amber, with a tan, lacing head. Delicious citrus, pine, resin, caramel, hints of plum, apple, and white grapes in the aroma. Medium body with high carbonation. Brown sugary sweet taste and a strong, hoppy finish. Long lasting honey sweetness. Very good. omhper (25138) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 12, 2010
Bottled at Stockholm Beer Festival. Cloudy pale amber, small head. Enormous grapefruit aroma. Dry and dense, medium bodied. Loads and loads of hoppytangerine. Hugely bitter finish. Pleasant though extreme. drfabulous (7948) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - OCT 11, 2010
12 ounce. Intense alcohol aroma. Old grapefruit and bitter taste. Malty and sugary. Amber color. Good, but overpriced. Die_Kapusta (191) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 10, 2010
Hazy bright orange pour with a warm white frothy head.

Aroma is really nice and complex. I get sweet flavours of caramel and honey, heavy fruitiness, leafy notes, floral notes, hoppy flavours of thistle, orange peel and grapefruit.
Taste comes at you like a shower of complexity and deliciousness. It´s sweet with a slight earthiness. I get honey, pine, grapefruit and massive hoppiness. I can sense the rather high alcohol content but it´s balanced enough with it´s body and hoppiness to handle it.
Delicious! One of my favorite IPA’s.
A: The pour is an amber-orange sort of color with a thin white (maybe slightly off-white) head.
S: A decent hop aroma comes through initially. However, it’s quickly followed by burnt rubber and alcohol. Not really what I was hoping for.
T: There’s a fairly substantial bitterness to this beer, with a moderate amount of malt sweetness and some slightly caramelized sugars. A sweet citrus flavor along with fusel alcohols and rubber.
M: The body is medium with a low to moderate level of carbonation.
D: Ah, Mikkeller and Brewdog, everyone’s favorites. I wasn’t really a fan of this one, obviously.
