Had this one on cask at Deep Ellum:
A- Poured a sort of opaque amber brown color with a bubbly white head. There were also some lighter orange tones.
S- Very hopy aroma with a subtle almost vinegar like smell that gives it a sort of roundness and brightness.
T- Lots of floral hop flavors. Malts take a back seat here. It finishes with tart bitter hop notes. This was an excellent portrayal of hop depth.
M- Light feeling for the style, almost silky.
D- Thoroughly enjoyed, but is the type to take one at a time due to the higher abv.
Serving type: on-tap

Galway, Ireland, 33cl bottle.
A: Dark amber or copper. Poured medium head, small bubble / cell size, some lacing, lingers. Lovely appearance. Fresh look.
S: Twang of a single IPA. Thick toffee orange. Not much dankness, which is disappointing for a IIIPA.
T: Bitterness and concentrated toffee orange (oily). Not much else coming through for me.
M: Medium body, I like this in some beers, but a IIIPA? Probably not.
O: Nice beer. A IIIPA’s spirit fighting to get out of a dark ales body.
Too much caramel flavours for style. For me, >IPAs should have minimal caramel flavours to allow the hop character come through; hasn’t happened for me here. Lovely beer to try. I’m a big Brewdog fan, but won’t go out of my way to purchase this again. I wouldn’t like to try this beer in the US, or in Europe, I don’t think it would travel well.

This a very well balanced IPA that goes down very easy.
Poured a dark amber orange with a small head and some lacing. The beer was not too bitter and the malt helped smooth it out to make it a very drinkable IPA. Mouth feel was smooth with hints of citrus and pine.
Will definitely buy this again.
