Looks like a blonde ale as its poured and the smell is on the weak side. Not off to a good start.
Hmmmm I think the Scotts got it wrong with this brew. Its nowhere near an American IPA. Rather this is more of a slightly spiced pale ale at best. Crispy mouthfeel with no resinous texture at all. Sharp carbonation. This is sessionable as its right down the middle without much edge.
Notes: I'll pass for the price as there are much better options without the import charge.

This is exactly what I want in an IPA. I'm not an overly big IPA guy and this might be sacrilege to my IPA-loving friends who always obsess over the hop character of every beer, but this one pretty much tops the list for me. It is full of flavor without going overboard. It is balanced between hops of a vaguely pine or pineapple sort, malts which taste like good bread, and an altogether pleasant medium between the two. It's an IPA which doesn't just taste like an IPA. It tastes like a beer too, and a very good one at that. It was my first introduction to BrewDog's brand of no-nonsense, punk-styled offerings and it will not be my last. So far I have found this to be good in bottles purchased here in the states as well as on tap at their Edinburgh location which I was fortunate to visit last week while vacationing there. This beer goes well with cheese and will forever occupy a place in my palate as the perfect example of hops that aren't over the top.

Clear golden, frothy lingering ivory head. Aroma is floral, resiny, oniony, and slightly citrusy. Flavor is more minerally and earthy, with a resonating bitterness at the finish. Malt is light and crackery, and there's a savory, herbal character throughout. Aroma and bittering hops override the flavoring hops. Not extreme in any direction.
