Thrown with (almost) abandon into an old pint pot making a ruby red body with a big head that subdued but kept in the glass.
Aroma thrown up of grapefruit, blood orange, cherries and freshly cut grass.
The taste is so, bitter fruits and sour tones creating almost a sweet and sour sensation then hoppy snaps goes the aftertaste.
I like bold brash big tastes but this was getting almost too much for me.
Very lively carbonation paired against a good mouthfeel leaves me with pondering.
Give it a go, you never know you might like it
but for me the jury is pretty much still out.

Poured this Brew Dog staple from the 330 ml bottle into an English pub glass. I was greeted by a nice brick red hue, just short of brown, with around three fingers of tan head. Features a toasted caramel aroma with some citrus rind and hop spice apparent. Stated plainly, I was impressed by the flavor: Malt-forward but provides a decent flavor hops punch. I get raisin biscuits, faint molasses, and lightly toasted cereals providing the scaffolding, while tangerine rind and flesh, tobacco, floral pollen, black tea, pineapple, and maybe a hint of bramble fruit provide the decorations. Tasty. Smooth body is on the thin side perhaps but does coat the mouth a little, oily with a moderate soft carbonation. The fruity flavor notes develop nicely as the beer warms up. Finishes fairly crisp but does leave a malty echo and some earthy hops. One of the better red/amber ales I've tried in recent memory, clean crystal malt flavors and not cloyingly sweet, with a decent hop spice. I will be back.
