4.8/5 rDev +19.1%
look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75
473ml Can from the Brewdog Online Shop:
Light caramel amber with some orange and a 0.5cm, bubbly white head that stays pretty decent for such a strong beer, leaving some nice lacing too.
Plenty pine hops and tropical fruits on top of a caramel base that hints at some vanilla too. The smell is great with plenty of strength and fruity mix of grapefruit, pineapple and citrus, some floral notes & a subtle hint of alcohol as well.
Tropical fruits but with the caramel and sweet malts coming more to the forefront in the taste. There is a great caramel flavour mixed together with the grapefruit and pineapple I mentioned earlier on the nose. Subtle alcohol & the citrus & pine hops feature heavily.
Smooth, sweet and quite rich with a smooth and medium body that features some stickiness in places. There is some hints of alcohol but the beer is frighteningly easy to drink.
Almost perfect and very probably the best beer I've ever tried (thankfully it has at least limited UK distribution into the bargain). Phenomenal with an amazing taste. I'll be picking this up again the next time I see it anywhere.

Born on date : 4/24/14 - Enjoyed 7/27/14
A: Honey colored with 1 finger of white head. The head settles relatively quickly. The can includes a very obvious, and readable, born on date on the bottom!
S: Piney and floral. There are mild hints of citrus. As it warmed I got more grassy smells.
T: Sweet on the front of the tongue. The finish is piney and grassy with just a hint of bitter.
M: Smooth and easy to drink. The carbonation is low.
O: Great overall beer. All of the parts play well together. Only a slight hint of the 8% ABV. This beer is complex and has lots of flavors going on. Also the bitterness is kept in check - which I like.
