Aberdeenshire micro BrewDog has been creating a bit of a stir since it started brewing in April 2007 - mostly for making a range of bold and generally well-thought-of craft beers, but also for upsetting self-appointed, megabrewery-funded watchdog the Portman Group with their amusing labelling, which could only be construed as offensive by those with (a) no sense of humour, or (b) a vested interest in suppressing innovative craft brewers. You decide which one the Portman Group is guilty of. BrewDog's own blog is well worth a read on this subject (click here).

Bottle, RBESG 2007 in Glasgow, Grand Tasting. Pale yellow colour. Very nice hoppy aroma, notes of tropical fruits. Hoppy and sweet flavour, too hoppy and sweet for me. Score: 5.5
One of the best IPa's around AND its from the UK!! Easily an 8
I picked up a few bottles tonight at Tesco... LOVELY STUFF!!!
I will be recommending this to friends and family.
