4.58/5 rDev +13.6%
A - Very dark orange, almost red. Poured a two finger, light khaki, head. Lots of big bubbles and the head faded pretty quickly leaving a nice ring of lace.
S - Lots of orange and lemon. Very citrusy and pretty aroma. Smells like it's going to be very smooth and not have a lot of hop bite.
T - Just as I suspected, very smooth. Not an astringent hop flavor, but the hops make themselves very present. Very drinkable for an 8% IPA.
M - Decent carbonation and a sweet aftertaste that lingers. Very pleasant.
O - One of the best IPA's I've had in a while. Great showing from a great brewer.

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.

3.91/5 rDev -3%
16oz can dated 10/8/13 poured into a pint glass
A: Clear orange color with a lingering 1.5-finger head
S: Bold pine hops, citrus and a hint of malty notes
T: Again hop-forward, mostly pine but a bit of grapefruit. The midpalate is also hoppy but adds malt which is a big obtrusive. Usually I like malt to balance the hops but here it just tries too hard so gets in the way
M: I love the smoothness that the lingering head adds, something not seen nearly often enough these days. The rest of the beer is medium-bodied, fairly crisp other than the malt-slam in the middle. Long finish
O: I like the regular Dale's at least as much though this is also a welcome addition to the lineup

Poured into a pint glass from a 16 oz can.
Pours golden amber and very clear. Light carbonation with minimal head.
Lacing is incredible.
Malty presence with balanced hop flavor and bitterness, but the bitterness does linger in the finish. Perhaps a little grassy in the end, but still very enjoyable.

I like this beer, but it was a bit to malty, and caramel sweet for me. Resin taste didn't sit well for me. Not my kind of IPA, wasn't pleased. On the other hand, I could taste the complexity of this beer.
A- The look was a dark orange look. Lacing was good, head was gone quickly.
S- Pine, sweet, but bitter aroma.
T- Pine, bitter, sweetness of mild tropical fruit. Very pine driven.
