A 330ml bottle with a BB of Nov 2014. Given to me as a Christmas present - many thanks! As this is Brewdog, I'm expecting a red ale with some extra hops....
Poured into a tulip pint glass. A deep reddish-amber hue with medium carbonation. Yields a large head of creamy off-white foam that lasts for a few minutes before reducing to a thin surface layer. Some lacing. Aroma of abundant hops with hints of pine, orange peel, subtle grapefruit, citrus, caramel malt, stewed hops and earthy yeast. Good stuff.
Tastes of intense aromatic hops with a powerful bitter finish. Notes of pine resin, grapefruit, peel, citrus, caramel malt, subtle yeast and stewed hops. Well-attenuated, followed by a strident hoppy bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth and tingly, with spritzy carbonation and a somewhat insubstantial body. Quite astringent, followed by an aftertaste of pine, bitter stewed hops and mild caramel malt.
Tasty - another satisfying brew from the punk brewers. Looks good, while the aroma and flavour are a showcase for American hops and the malt stays firmly in the back seat. Body is OK but could be a shade thicker. Goes down a treat; would make a great fridge beer to keep around. Worth sampling if you come across it.

BrewDog is brewing 1000% as far as I am concerned.
Burnt orange mahogany, khaki head. A bit of lace.
S: Real beer pungency. Massive nose, with dark malts, hops, balance, and a late night, beer hall, deep dark wood finish.
T: Follows smell, and builds with more complex hops flavors. Bitter and dark, and wine like.
MF: Just right. Classic EURO feel. Like beer used to taste in Germany, British Isles, and Ireland.
A must try.
Core offering. Love the red hoppy style.
