Busy as usual. Friendly, enthusiastic staff.

BrewDog - Hazy Jane7.20ExcellentBordering on 5* this NEIPA was juicy and sweet with soft mouthfeel and limited bitterness.
BrewDog - Cloudwater collab NEIPA V28.50ExcellentComplete contrast to Hazy Jane, this beer bordered on the elegant/austere. Much more focussed it seemed closer to a DIPA but very enjoyable. 660ml bottle.

Busyish early evening. Good to see some staff from Gallowgate working there.

Beavertown - Gamma Ray5.40Good
BrewDog - Jet Black Heart4.70GoodThey've changed the dispense and now use a CO2/N2 mix. What a difference! Body and flavour in abundance. Wonder how they'd work that trick with cask?
Fourpure - Hoptart3.70GoodLiked this but wouldn't have recogised it as Berliner Weisse. More of a very pale ale with dominant lemon flavours. Eyewateringly priced.

I like lined glasses but not when given short measure and told 'It will settle'. It would but not by that amount.

BrewDog - Jet Black Heart4.70PoorNew beer to me but barstaff said it was a black IPA. Surprised then to see BrewDog describe it as milk stout. It was neither; lacked body and any discernible flavour profile.

Opening night and the place was heaving. Staff having fun except those in the kitchen who were trying to keep a grip. Sound first impression but needs settling time.

Beavertown - Gamma Ray5.40GoodInitially served Punk in error but quickly changed. Solid, hop forward pale ale.

BrewDog's second Aberdeen bar. This one is much larger with a club downstairs - UnderDog, of course. More food on offer and a bottle shop which, to start with at least, offers excellent value.

We have visited this pub 5 times, seen 6 different beers and tried them all.
