Arrived via a friends suitcase from his overseas visit. drink by 12/16/14 on the bottle. Wowzers...Me love you long time. six-nine months max for a run of the mill ale.
330ml bottle. Brewdog was once ubiquitous in New England when it first invaded the shore of the continental US. Due to the surge in US craft beers I think this English outfit to a backseat du to it's geographic proximity.
It's appearance is outstanding. Bright and brilliant for a pale ale. Good lace, good head retention. Textbook qualities. This beer looks like it will taste outstanding.
This beer has no aroma. The hops are completely muted.I can't say it smells bad, or dank or good. It has no aroma. It tastes alright though with a slight warming bite at the end. Light mouthfeel that includes a tiny bit of clingy-ness with the hops. Must be something amazingly neutral they used as this despite it;s lack
The beer has some good qualities and some that just don't shine through. It could be old beer or just some crazy experiment that went slightly arrive and still ended up tasting good. I enjoyed this beer despite it's lack of character.

A 330ml bottle with a BB of July 2013. Picked up from a supermarket a little while back. Described as a Californian pale ale; no idea how they picked the moniker for this one.
Poured into a tulip pint glass. A light orange-amber hue with medium carbonation. Yields a large head of creamy white foam that lasts for a few minutes before reducing to a persistant surface layer. Aroma of sweet caramel malt with hoppy overtones; notes of grapefruit, orange rind, mango, pine, citrus and hints of tropical fruit. Smells lovely.
Tastes of caramel malt with a hoppy character and a clean bitter finish. Notes of grapefruit, orange, citrus, pine, mango, tropical fruit and stewed hops. Slightly sweet, though the malt seems a bit underpowered. A crisp, strident bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth, dry and tingly, but rather thin and watery. Quite astringent, with an aftertaste of bitter aromatic hops and subtle malt.
Pretty good and certainly tasty. Smells great; lots of juicy hop notes mingling together in delicious harmony. The flavour seems a tad unbalanced in favour of hops - the malt could benefit from being beefed up. The body is also lacklustre; too thin and insubstantial. However, it's a solid effort for a relatively low ABV brew and it still has good drinkability. I could see this becoming a regular drinking beer if the price/availability were right. Worth sampling if you come across it.

Pours amber with a fading white head.
Nose shows lychee and passionfruit along with biscuity and bready malt.
Flavours focus on the malt; more biscuity and bready characters. Not that much of the hops show.
Too much carbonation, body feels a bit watery.

Bottle: Poured a light hazy amber color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of fresh floral citrus notes with lightly sweet undertones. Taste is also dominated by fresh citrus notes with light floral notes and sweet undertones with fresh fruity esters. Body is quite full with good carbonation. Nice fresh hops profile with nice mix between Simcoe and Citra hops with plenty of character with little alcohol.

330ml bottle: BBD 25 Jul 2013. Poured into a Duvel glass at home on 5 Jun 2013.
Dull orange/amber body, with a slight haze within. Off-white head that started thin but stayed the distance.
Citrus nose with a malty biscuit aroma as the beer warmed.
The taste was also citrus in the fore with the malts arriving later: the hops re-asserting themselves towards the end of each sip.
I'm not a huge 'citrus' flavoured beer man but this had something extra to offer somehow.
