3.41/5  rDev -12.1%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours deep amber with a fading white head.
Heavy sweet malt on the nose along with resinous pine and grassy hops.
More malt as a flavour, but also heavy booze and piny hops. A bit harsh.
Too much carbonation.
Expected better from Brewdog, not to say this was bad....

330ml bottle from Vino Wines, Edinburgh:
Pours a clear and light copper colour with a pinky sized, bubbly white head that leaves a little lacing on the glass.

Tropical fruits to begin, this one smells quite juicy with some pine hops coming through and some berries with a touch of citrus too. Some fruity hops and a combination of peach and mango like aromas finish things off quite nicely.

Fruity with a lot more grapefruit and pine hops this time round. There is a good mix of oranges and peach with some citrus and a nice alcohol kick to compliment the tropical fruits. It is rounded off with some sweet berries and tonnes of bitter hops.

Medium body and lively carbonation, the beer is quite sweet and definitely dry with plenty of bitterness.

Not a bad beer, a lot more fruity than I had been expecting for the style and quite juicy as well with a good aroma but the taste, whilst good probably wasn't as good as some of the more well known American double IPA's out there.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Amber colour with a small, white head. No head retention.

Citrussy and fruity. Touches of berry. Sweet, sweet malt. Very nice.

Sweet malt with a hefty fruit hit. Nice berry and citrus. Touches of alcohol. Good.

Medium body with moderate carbonation. Nice.

A delicious IPA with good berry notes. It comes together well. Nice bitterness and it all works well.
