The smell is aggressively bitter and hoppy with a distinct almost sharp sour-fruity flavour that makes me think of kiwi, lime, bitter oranges and a touch of cloudberries. Some sweetness and alcohol in the background.

The colour is deep amber with a tint of gold-orange (27 EBC). The liquid is almost clear. The finger thick head is warm off-white and very compact. It sinks very slowly leaving some lacing.

The flavour is hoppy and bitter with warming alcohol, too. Sweet jam-like notes, some cloudberries, raspberries, oranges and lime. Grand bitterness and full bodied. The aftertaste is fruity and hoppy with dry bread-like malt. Cloudberry jam in the finish.

The carbonation is medium strong with small bubbles. The liquid is smooth and a bit thick.

An very elegant DIPA with a fruity twist that really works.

330ml bottle from Brewdog online shop (£2.95):
Nice stuff from Brewdog, I can see what all the fuss was about when this one was first released back in 2011. Starting with quite a fruity taste that was loaded with pine & grapefruit hops but still seemed fairly juicy & fresh; there was a nice bitterness to proceedings & the alcohol content remained well hidden. Not an all-time best from the brewery but it is a pretty nice beer & one that I'd happily go back to again were it to find itself as a regular offering from the brewery.

Off-white frothy head stayed well on a still, murky light oak coloured body. Light fruity aroma with tropical fruits. Smooth, very smooth, minimal carbonation & a silky feel on the back. This is so subtle, light fruity tastes, berries, & absolutely no alcohol flavours.

The pour is a hazed amber color with a white head. Very fruit forward on the nose. Lots of citrus, tropical fruits, and berries. As expected, quite a bit of sweet malt aroma, mostly caramel and brown sugar. The flavor is very sweet, some of which is from the caramel and brown sugar of the malt. The remainder is in the form of sweet hop notes such as citrus and tropical fruit. The cloudberries are also still fairly well pronounced.

Tried once before, wasn't sure then, this time around something's different.

Pour is a deep amber. Two finger head. Settles into a nice cloud. Holds all the way. Looks nice.

Smells great. A lot like Loose Cannon or better, Nugget Nectar. Very malty. Citrus, pine. Rich malt backbone. Can't wait

Taste is same as smell. Very similar to Nugget. Makes you pucker! Like this one, surprised. Very malty, sweetness counteracts the bitterness

Mouthfeel is thick, syrupy. Sticks to your taste buds. Again, like the two before mentioned brews.

Like this one after the second time around. Don't know what's different. After the first sip, it was obvious. This is s once off brew, and I wish I could find a few more because it was very tasty. A good alternative to Nugget . Great job BrewDog

Testing this beer well chilled, poured from the bottle into a tulip glass.

A: When poured into the glass i thin foamy head is created. The beer has a clear amberish color.

S: The smell got load of hoppy, almost sweet nectar-like tones giving you that great feel that there are lots of hops in here!

T: Just as hinted from the smell, the taste is loaded with hops giving you that very bitter tones that turns into almost sweet nectar-like tones.

M: The gentle carbonation of this beer that left after pouring it into the glass gives you a smooth juicy feel.

O: Just as expected this is a strong double IPA that is loaded with hops. The gentle carbonation gives the beer an almost nectar like feel.

Bottle obtained in a trade with some friendly Swedish guys I met during SF Beer Week. Batch #303

A-Pours clear amber with 1/4 inch of foamy light tan head. Minimal soapy lacing.

S-The tropical fruitiness of the Nelson Sauvin hops come through stronger than anything else. Hops smell faded in general. I think this might be a bit old, though the bottle has a best by date of 07/08/12. A musty vegetal aroma behind the fruitiness of the hops.

T/M-Again, heavy on the tropical fruit hoppiness. Medium bodied with a crisp finish that is marked with a lingering under-note of thin malty sweetness. That musty vegetal flavor presents itself right up front, but soon gets lost in palate drying bitterness and tropical fruit sweetness mid-palate.

O-Weird beer. Not really sure what to make of it. One of the better BrewDog IPAs I've had.
