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.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

BrewDog is brewing 1000% as far as I am concerned. Red Tail (Mendicino) was my first craft back in the early 90s and this beer out performs my fond memory of that beer.
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.
