One of the cleanest IPA’s on the market. Bottle pours a white fluffy head that sticks around for a bit, and laces well. The flavor is citrus fruit followed with a crisp hop finish. For a 7% ABV IPA this beer drinks like a session beer. It has great drinkability and will kick your d!#k in the dirt if you drink too many. Believe the hype and go buy a six pack.

You can’t go wrong with this IPA. Great from start to finish. The citrus is well balanced with the hop. Use this as your standard for comparison.

The crystal clear amber color. The nose was the one and only thing fell a tad short on this awesome brew. Loved the taste bud killing bitterness! No words can describe the hop flavor, perfect!

Bottle from BrewDog Birmingham; clear amber pour thin white head glorious hop aroma at pour, taste doesn’t disappoint tropical hop with mango and citrus, perfect level of bitterness, decent body quite viscous mouthfeel, quite high ABV for an IPA.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Best before May 16, 2013.
Appearance: Pay attention other breweries, this is exactly how an IPA should look. The body is a crystal clear amber, not too dark like many other IPAs, showing off carbonation throughout lazily floating to the thick and creamy white head that takes up 1/3 of the glass on the pour. The retention is average, but it settles into a creamy thick coating.
Aroma: Hops, hops, hops. The aroma is dominated by the hops, but hints only slightly at bitterness. The aroma is strong of oranges and grapefruit in good balance.
Taste: This is balanced beautifully, the malts are mild on the intro and provide a pleasant backing for the flavorful orange hops with mild grapefruit bitterness. The flavor lingers for a bit of oranges then grapefruit.
Palate: Medium bodied, oily texture, with hints of carbonation.
Overall: World class IPA, this is the epitome of a West-Coast IPA. Everyone needs to try this, it’s balanced beautifully and very drinkable. Great beer.

Light soft gold pour, thin white head. Ripe soft fruit in the nose (mango & peach) with pine wafting through the back. Pleasant, sharp bitterness. Oily and coating with light dancing malt and and hops through the middle. Creamy mouth feel at the end with a strong, but not overpowering, bitter hop finish. 7% alcohol is so well blended that it only show up now in my notes. Spend the $ and try this one.
