look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Pours a dirty orange brown, some sedimenty bits. Head is off-white, not bad but not great. Some lace, just sparse bubbling after a while. Decent, could look stickier maybe for the style.

Smells pleasant. Rich, sticky caramelly malt with a mild tangy hop note - some citrus and melon. Mild herbal note but could just be hop-related rather than brambly. Decent DIPA smell.

Taste is starting to get old. Definite musty character before true malt character comes through. Caramel, toffee and nutty notes with some walnut and hazelnut in there. Finishes quite bitter, with herbal medicine notes and a peppery bite on the back. Interesting, could work up to that slight astringent bite with stronger, tangy fruit hop notes, but has a decent balance overall and a smooth front-to-back journey.

Decent body, but has an odd carbonation fizz. Goes down alright.

Decent DIPA with an interesting twist. Not sure I love the twist, but it's interesting.

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.

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.
