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.

yngwie (15380) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 17, 2012
Bottle. A clear, dark golden beer topped by a dense, finger-thick off-white head. Lots of ginger on the nose, too much I think, hiding most of the other scents. Some caramel maltyness. It’s full-bodied, softly carbonated and with too much ginger. Some ginger warmth too. Caramel maltyness, and a generic spicyness too. Pleasant, but too ginger-ish that I find it pleasant. 121017

mjakopa (232) - Maribor, SLOVENIA - OCT 15, 2012
Nice darker colour with some head. Aroma is grassy, dry and incense. Taste is almost spicy and the incense taste overwhelms the body. This is not too drinkable.

You’re right you know, it’s like bubblegum that is losing its flavour. Really disappointed with this. I hate disappointing people but I’m very poor. It’s all this craft beer I’m drinking. And nights out watching American punk bands. Beer for punks with no money, that’d be something to sign up for wouldn’t it scamps?

Ktwse (2798) - SWEDEN - OCT 13, 2012
Yeah, this is not working... Pours a clear dark amber with off-white head. Aroma is, well, what you would expect: berries, fruit, maybe a hint of spices.Very sweet. Taste has caramel malt up front before a finish of, again, sweet berries. In between a fairly rich carbonation to add some element of edge to it, but overall, it ends up way too sweet.

armando629 (2448) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 12, 2012
On tap/bottle, Csakajosor, Budapest.
Poured clear amber with a medium pillowy head that slowly went to a small lacing white one. Freaky aroma with juniper and herbs, laurel, rosemary, pine, dead fallen leaves. Medium sweet flavor with pine again, juniper, herbs. Yes, this is not an IPA but very interesting, good one!
