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.

Nose of caramelized malts and hops. All return in mouth followed by a brief floral and hopped final.

Appearance – Deep amber even leaning towards reddish with deep head of off white foam that is long lived and leaves some pretty decent lace. There is also a good amount of busy CO2 activity in the glass.

Smell – Very leafy aroma of coriander mint and some fruit salad. There is also floral notes in here and heavy pine notes of American hops.

Taste – The taste follows the nose pretty well. Great minty and herbal hops, rich sweet malted grains with caramel flavour and a final deep hoppy flourish at the finish that like the smell is very pinney.

Mouthfeel – A little Cloying in the finish but very smooth and creamy at the front. Mild body.

Overall – A very good red ale that is very easy going down and has a decent finish. Like all of BrewDog's I have had this one has very heavy pine hops. The hops are nice but to be honest it tends to make all their beers taste very similar

Nice freshness and tartness, real zip. Nice smell. Would have liked a bit more heft and for it to have been a little boozier.

Aroma is the best thing here- floral & a bit exotic. Appearance is average. Flavor on the malty side; body chewy. Overall decent n drinkable.

Poured a hazed deep ruddy amber with a light tan head that doesn't last long but leaves a small amount of soapy lacing. The aroma is a mild blend of grain, fruit, and earthy hops. The taste is a little more robust, but follows in suit. The body has a pleasant thickness to it and and a good smooth finish. A tasty red ale.
