look: 4.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

330ml Bottle:
Hazy, mild amber colour although the head is marginally better on this one and manages to hold as a quarter cm, bubbly and slightly off-white head.

Floral notes with some spice and fruits plus a little bit of citrus. Tropical fruits & elderflower and a herbal, slightly earthy smell too.

Sweet with some pine hops and a lot of citrus to start, helped out with some orange peel and and bit of peppery spice. Earthy hop taste to this one but the citrus takes over more towards the middle and the end and there is a tropical fruit flavour as well.

Chewy & medium bodied with a strong citrus tang and a sweet, almost pine like feel that is coupled with strong carbonation. The finish is a slightly bitter and hop filled one.

An improvement on the last IPA is Dead offering, Dana but only a slight step up and still not a great beer really. This one is more fruity and has more citrus that the last but the taste is a basic one. A step in the right direction but still not good.

Pours amber with a small head.
Nose shows earthy, spicy and herbal hops along with some sweet clean malt underneath.
Similar flavours. Earthy herbal hops in abundance with some soft malt underneath that fails to match the bold, sharp bitterness.
Carbonation seems a little sharp.

3.31/5  rDev -5.7%
look: 2.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

The colour is gold-orange (27 EBC), the liquid sis hazy. The finger thick head quickly sinks down to a thick off-white lid, leaving no lacing.

The smell is a bit chemical with notes of hay, grass and buttery flowers. Some (semi-tart) bitterness, hints of plastic and rubber. Strong candy-like sweetness, hints of chloride.

The taste is bitter, it is more powerful than I had expect. Grass, hay, straw. Buttercups, dandelions and other floral flavours.
The aftertaste is smooth with notable alcohol, bitter hops, dandelions and hay. The finish is semi-bitter with even more flowers and a touch of bitter herbs.

The carbonation is medium strong, the small long-lived bubbles are sharp. The liquid is mid-smooth.

More bitterness than expected. Apart from that, this one got the expeted Goldings flavours.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

A: Hazy copper pour with a medium tall off-white head, somewhat compact.

S: Bready malt, semi-sweet, yeasty and spicy. Bitter hops and floral hops. Pine and citric notes.

T: Again bready malt, but the bitterhops are way stronger. The floral hops is there but not as strong as the bitter hops. Floral hops brings pine and citric notes.

M: Long bitter aftertaste. Body is medium to full while carbonation is rather mild.

O: The bitterhops was too dominant, I think that the floral-part of the Goldings hops should have more to offer than this. Unbalanced.

Brewdog "IPA is Dead" take 3 involves the conservative classic stylings of Goldings (not sure of subtype, East Kent?), and sure enough it looks and smells like English beer. This brew pours a dark golden honey color with ample off-white foam, releasing a pleasing potpourri of rich pale and crystal malts, stone fruits, and a floral perfume almost like dandelions or some other yellow weed. Palate reminds me of a bitter or pale ale with decent malt complexity and the peach/apricot fruitiness and dry peppery spice that dry hopping with Goldings can provide. There is toast and burnt sugar, quite a bit of green leaf, and carrot/parsley flavors lurking in the finish, which is earthy bitterness plus the aforementioned floral notes. Makes me remember tasting dandelion milk as a kid. Moderate body and tea-like astringency almost like an Irish red but make no mistake. There is a persistent sweetness throughout that balances the strong hops. Not too bad at all. No frills brew without bells and whistles. This works and avoids the wonkey flavors showing up in its two stablemates, Waimea and Dana.

On-tap. Nonic glass @ Animal Bar (Madrid). Brass color, veiled appearance. White froth creates creamy crown leaving rocky spots on sides. Earthy & floral aromas rounded by slight citric hues. Malty mouthfeel & kind but intense bitterness. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Sharp hoppiness lingers into a long bitter finish.

One of my preferred choice of hops, I found it nice to have this single hop IPA version at its home country. On tap at BrewDog.
Hazy amber color with a one finger head with medium retention.
As expected, aroma of herbal citrus English hops, licorice and honey.
Flavor of English leafy tea with orange drops, Golding hops, sweet malt, pepper and resins.
Dry aftertaste with a long lasting bitterness.
Medium to full body with medium carbonation.
Interesting IPA, difficult to find this type of single hop. Worth it the experience.
