330ml Bottle as part of the 2013 Brewdog Prototype Challenge (£2, Good Spirits Co, Glasgow):
Bright, clear amber with a finger-sized, foamy white head that fades to a foamy looking lacing on the surface with further built up on the edges of the glass and some lacing too.
Hoppy with some nice bitter notes coming through as well. There is a background tropical fruit aroma and citrus, although I was struggling to detect anything in the way of any wheat coming through. I did get some mango and a little caramel though.
Light tropical fruits and some bitterness, but now with some wheat that was missing from the nose.There is a good mix of fruits with mango, citrus and some all featuring and some pine hops in there too, as well as some caramel but this is minimal.
Smooth and slightly bitter with a juicy feel to it but that comes across as a little watery in areas but this luckily isn't throughout. Both the carbonation and the body of this one are about medium and the beer is quite easy to drink with a semi bitter, pine like finish that lingers a little.
Not too bad an effort from Brewdog although I wouldn't be rushing out to buy it if it were a year round offering due to the fact they have so many better, similar style beers already.
