Notes/Commercial Description:
Start the car. The lights are about to turn amber. Buy the ticket, take the ride. Past the alley where thieves and pimps sell corporate brews and good men soak it up like vermin, blissful in their ignorance. Past the jackhammers who want their three and a half percent. Keep going. Towards that golden orb, the size of Zeus’s ass, that hovers over this crazy town. Sleep late, have fun, get wild, drink amber, and drive like a bastard towards that saintly light.

Poured into straight half glass.

Pleasing deep amber appearance, very clear with a small head of tight small foam that rests comfortably upon the liquid. A light lacing flatters the glass.

An profound aroma of hoppy resinous pine with citrus and tropical notes, appealing and enticing.

Taste - intriguing, expecting a hit of hops, but whilst a grapefruit and pine flavour lingers on the front of the mouth, tropical hints of mango and pineapple, rye and brown sugar brings a depth to the taste. The feel is smooth and creamy, mild carbonation aids the subtlety.

A pleasant, above average beer, of a style that can be drowned out amongst the shouting hoards of extreme beers that are becoming the norm.

BrewDog is brewing 1000% as far as I am concerned.
A:
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.
Appealing.
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.
