A 330ml bottle with a BB of Nov 2011. Features a cool purple label with the usual Brewdog blurb.
Poured into a Sam Smith's pint glass. A hazy pale gold colour with light carbonation and indications of live yeast. Produces a huge head of white foam with remarkable stability; this eventually reduces to a thin surface layer. Lovely aroma; light malt with floral hops and notes of citrus and yeast.
The taste is nicely balanced between malt and hoppy bitterness - a well judged flavour. Slightly sweet, with plenty of floral and citrus notes from the hops. Mouthfeel is pleasingly smooth and tingly with a mildly astringent finish. Aftertaste of aromatic hoppy notes.
A very nice beer, and easy to drink. I was worried that it might be too weak or lacking in flavour compared to their other brews, but it achieves an excellent balance. Light and refreshing - well worth trying if you come across it.

3.45/5 rDev -2.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
Bottle: standard brown 355mL brown bottle, typically funky BrewDog label.
Appearance: pours a slightly hazy amber in colour with a reasonable off-white head that lasts. Decent lacing too.
Aroma: plenty of grapefruit and pine hops, tropical fruits and some bready malts.
Taste: the grapefruit and passionfruit from the aroma are definitely present, along with some pepper spice and grass.
Aftertaste: a good dose of hop bitterness comes through afterward with a touch of malt.
Mouth feel: a moderate mouth feel with a lower carbonation. Possibly could use a bit more bite.
Overall: a pretty decent pale ale per the BrewDog norm. A nice combination of hops and bread malts. The price of AU$78 a case of 24 x 330mL (2014) seems a bit steep, but maybe a 6-pack every now and then.
