Bottle from Brewdog.com Online Shop (650ml, £7.55):
Dark golden colour with a great, two finger sized and foamy white head on top that looks to hold pretty well initially. There is some lacing left on the sides of that glass and the beer is a clear looking one.

Fruity with tonnes of tropical fruits on the nose to begin with, there is also a touch of spice and a solid, juicy aroma along with some nice, lighter pine hops and some bitterness.There mango and citrus along with some sweet malts, caramel, mango and some grapefruit.

Sweet malts and caramel upfront with some pine hops and grapefruit giving a sweet, medium strength bitter taste. The beer is a great one with plenty of tropical flavours coming through that includes some mango, orange and tonnes of hops yet the bitterness levels are not too strong.

Medium bodied and very smooth with an almost creamy mouthfeel and good, strong carbonation. There is some sweetness and a medium bitter finish.

Probably the best beer I've ever had, this one is as close as I've come to perfection in a beer. Starting with a great tropical fruits and pine hop aroma that matches the taste. The pine hops taste is amazing, coupled with the fact that the beer isn't overly bitter makes this truly outstanding.
