330ml bottle from Brewdog.com (£6.00):
Bright amber to orange colour with a thin, half centimetre head that is bubbly and stays solid for well over 5 mins.

Hoppy with tropical fruits and hops upfront with a strong smell of apricot among others . There is a sweetness to the beer as well, with a touch of spice and orange rounded off with a subdued citrus aroma.

Hops with some orange and citrus flavours and the apricot from the nose. There is a touch of peach and some sweet malts, some bitterness and some pine with tropical fruits.

Smooth with lively carbonation and a touch of alcohol around the middle. The body is about medium and goes down easy with a dry, semi-bitter finish.

A pretty good beer all round that fell somewhere between an English and an American IPA with plenty of hops and bitterness but also managing to strike a good balance between flavours and the aroma. Well worth a try.
