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.

Flaske 0,33l fra Vinmonopolet, bestillingsutvalget. Drukket hjemme 11 Jun 13. Gyldenbrun. Lavt luftig skum. God aroma av nåletrær. Smaken er skog: Einer, furu. Blir for ensforming. Mer original enn god. Litt julestemning - og sannsynligvis et eksempel på hvordan øl kunne smake før i tiden.

Doftar fläder fruktigt. Smakar citrus och honung. En god öl med en mickro bitter eftersmak.

pivnizub (9159) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JAN 11, 2014
Flaška: Honeyish-golden, a bit unclear, quickly collapsing loose off-white head, sweet herbal-spicy nose - some caramel detectable - very similar to cough-syrup; moderate to solid bitter and sweet flavour, medium bodied; warming sweet-bitter finish. A Jägermeister-like brew, who really needs such "beers"...

Pours hazy amber into a pint glass. Tan head with medium retention recedes to skim surface. Sweet and sour herb satchel aromas (yarrow, lavender). Medium bodied with lavender and twigs front to back. Lasting perfume finish. The marketing gimmick of a zero IBU IPA definitely brings it down a notch or two.

oh6gdx (21553) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 31, 2013
Bottled. Hazy deep orangeish amber colour with a small slightly off-white head. Aroma is spices, citrus, spruce and caramel. Flavour is spices, citrus some herbs and mild notes of spruce. Balanced. IMO a bit more spicy than the FD/BD version.

angel77 (1214) - oviedo, SPAIN - DEC 20, 2013
Botella de 33 cl mayo de 2013. Esto casi entra de lleno en el mundo de las infusiones. Cerveza muy especiada con aromas muy marcados a hierbas silvestres. cuerpo ligero de color turbio. Muy peculiar como experimento, aunque eso de los cero ibu no convence demasiado a un amante del lupulo. Se podria repetir? ... Aún me lo estoy preguntando.

Svesse (6716) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - DEC 8, 2013
(Bottle) Amber colour with frothy, beige head. Fruity, spicy nose with ginger, honey, heather, clove, ginger-bread cake, dark bread, orange peel and a touch of mint. Malty, spicy taste with notes of ginger, cardamom, clove, anise, rye bread, orange and a perfumy finish with low bitterness. Medium body, with a certain herbal sweetness. Strange beer, but quite interesting. More interesting than brilliant actually. But quite enjoyable.

JefVerstraete (1836) - Ghent, BELGIUM - NOV 25, 2013
Dark amber/copper, small white head. Low carbonation. Floral aroma, nose of spices (anise). Bitter taste with sweet notes. Weird beer, but interesting experiment.

Collaboration bryg mellem brewdog og Flying dog. 7,5 %. IPA UDEN Humle. denne øl er der ikke brugt humle. der er brugt krydderier til at give smag og bitterhed. lækker øl med fin duft af forskellige krydderier

kraddel (4251) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - NOV 10, 2013
Bottle side by side Pours a bit darker than flying dog no real foam I like this label better Smell is sweeter , and fuller than FD Taste is bit sweeter ( sugar ) and slightly less weird than FD . So this is less ’ special ’ but in a way better . Not in the aftertaste , wich is to perfumed , but i think brewdog won , even though its close , they mostly won cause of the better atrwork , i guess ;-)
