COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A fury of dots and dashes come trough the receiver. The translator turns in amazement. "A Zero IBU IPA by two breweries separated by sea?" His commanding officer lays a grizzled hand on his shoulder as his eyes narrow toward the horizon. "No bastard ever won a war by playing it safe, son."
The International Arms Race is a new type of battle collaboration between hardcore American craft brewery Flying Dog and BrewDog.
’Zero IBU IPA’ is an ale brewed with berries and herbs.
2 IPAs that rock.
Hunt them both down and see which beer you think deserves to win the battle and the war.

AndySnow (3300) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 9, 2012
Bottle. Amber colour with an off-white head. Has a bit of herbal, spicy aroma. So far so good. Having tasted the Flying Dog version I didn’t have much hopes for this and it didn’t live up to it. Flavour can’t really be described. Couldn’t keep it down long enough to distinguish the subtle nuances of bad this has. This is just awful.

Cool_Bond (1405) - Kung av Öl @ Facebook, SWEDEN - DEC 8, 2012
Jeez the beer. Smelling something weird and strange. Tastes not so good but after a while, still a little good taste. The aftertaste is boring and is not as long.

aroma is malty sweet alcoholic berrylike. appearance dark orange white foam which dissappears quickly. this isn’t bad and the aroma is really interesting but overall mediocre.

LoFi (1593) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 6, 2012
Bottle. Dark amber to copper, white head. Aroma: very sweet and filled with spices. Taste: sweet maltiness, honey, spices, cloves and others associated with Christmas, but can’t identify them all. Medium bodied. Not very successful.

mile (2993) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 29, 2012
Bottle. Light amber, hazy, small to average and fully diminishing head. Moderate and sweetish aroma, herbal spiciness (ginger), berry fruitiness. Body is average and sweetish flavor with herbal spiciness, berry fruitiness. Finish is average and sweetish, lots of Xmas spiciness. Spiciness + beer = no not work for me.

Alexus (240) - Stavanger, NORWAY - NOV 28, 2012
Shared bottle. Pours pale golden with a white head. The herb aroma hits the nose at once. The same goes for flavor. A heavy focus on sage in this beer. An interesting beer to try out, and now i’m satisfied...

WilleLW (178) - Lund, SWEDEN - NOV 27, 2012
Clear amber colour with a crispy head that sank down, but was much more durable than the FlyingDog version. Aroma with something similar to hops. Also malt, some rosted caramell, herbs and something perfume-like. Taste of malt, berries, herbs, some spices (but no strong flavours), some caramell sweetness and some hints of alcohol. Some small kind of bitterness is apparent. Fruity and easy to drink. OK body (maybe a little watery but still OK). The "winner" according to me.

Beerhammaren (1071) - FINLAND - NOV 26, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2012 .33l bottle from BD webshop. Pours clear amber with medium head. Aroma is lots of herbs. Some malts, berries and fresh birch leaf. Flavor is very herby and some malts. One can taste Finnish forest. Pine, birch... Some berries and clear alcohol taste. Not bad beer, but very complex to rate. Somehow the aroma is a bit better than flavor.
