Notes/Commercial Description:
This Californian Pale Ale packs a huge hoppy punch. A 21st century low amplitude, high voltage hop hit. Some people say slow is good. We believe fast is better. Being shot from a Hoppy Howitzer beats the hell out of trotting round a submissive paddock. That's why the internal combustion engine got mounted onto two wheels. Screw down the throttle and listen for that dull banshee howl floating back from those malted mufflers. Drink fast, live fast, sleep late and rip it up down empty streets. This pale ale is chopped, tuned and ready to roll. Fuel up and hold tight, this little thoroughbred kicks like a mule. Perfect for drinking by the bottle, case or even keg.

Amber color, beautiful off-white foam, quite creamy.
In the smell a citric hppiness, something like nettle, something floral.
In the mouth malt, citric, light body. And again something floral.
Quite short aftertaste, again citric and fruitiness.
Drinkable, but nothing exceptional.

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.

3.16/5  rDev -17.1%

Pours a clear dark amber with a small foamy white head.

The smell is citrus, oranges and grapefruit.

The taste is bitter, some citrus, fishes very wet and watery.

The mouthfeel was light and watery.

Not terrible but way too watery and thin bodied.

3.18/5  rDev -16.5%

The liquid is almost clear, the colour amber. The finger thick off-white head is airy.

Sweet-tart notes of lemonade, lots of lemons. Some tobacco and green plants/hops.

The taste is dry with some dried vegetables and algae. Medium strong bitterness with tart hints. Weak body, the beer gives a somewhat empty impression. The aftertaste is even thinner with some bitterness and sweetness. The finish is short with an unexpected cream flavour.

Medium strong carbonation, small bubbles. Light liquid.

Surprisingly thin and “empty” for being a British beer at 3.8 %. On the other hand, BrewDog isn’t very British after all.

3.25/5  rDev -14.7%

Golden amber that is very slightly hazy and a very foamy white head that is about an inch thick and slowly fades to leave a two millimetre thick, foamy lacing.

Hops to begin with along with some floral type notes and some grassy ones too. There is citrus, mild pine and a mix of light, summery fruits.There is quite a lot going on but it comes across as being well balanced in aroma at least.

Quite hoppy but not as strong as an IPA. There is some grapefruit, pine and light tropical fruits. I would compare this one to Punk IPA but a watered down, weaker version of the Brewdog flagship beer. A nice beer but nothing outstanding, although it must be noted it is only 3.8% and packs a punch for such a light beer.

Medium in body with a bitter hop tang to it and some bitterness but not a lot. The finish quite dry and crisp.

A very nice beer but not truly outstanding, perhaps slightly watery in areas but it's certainly not that noticeable and is full of flavour for a beer that comes in at under 4% abv.
