Poured a soft gloden color that thins out as you go down the bottle. Had a soft bread-looking head on top that dissipated into an oily white.
Smells wonderful! This brew has a caramel and grapefruit nose that is deep and fulfilling.
What a hop monster! This guy is all bitter, which is awesome imo.It's very light, not much of a malty backbone, and has a piney flavor of hops. It's good, but it's not as complex as some other US IPA's.
Overall, this is a brew that I'd order if I was at the pub, but isn't one that I would buy a case of. Not bad, not amazing.

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.
