355ml bottle bought from online from the Brewdog Shop

Poured a nice bright clear coppery orange colour. Slightly off white head poured quite big and foamy then faded fairly quickly to wispy covering with thick edging... no carbonation at all... light patchy lacing...

Aroma - Lots of (over) ripe tropical fruits (pineapples, limes, mangoes, grapefruits), strong piney resin, light caramel sweetness, citrus and grassy hops, some rubberiness, floral honey, very perfumed, oaky traces, faint talcum powder / chalky notes, light almond nuttiness, some boozy esters...

Taste - Lots of strong piney and citrusy hop bitterness to the fore, quite herbal - hints of basil and rosemary, very floral and perfumed, some sweet caramel malts come through after the hops, very spicy and juicy fruits (grapefruits, limes, pears, some banana), some chalkiness, faint vegetal traces...

M&D - Fairly smooth with a little oiliness in the background then some sharpness comes through - your mouth will tingle for a while after drinking a bottle of this... medium bodied... dangerously drinkable as the alcohol is well hidden..

Overall - An excellent and very well balanced DIPA - up with the best i've had... definitely recommended...
