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.

Bottle from Stirchley Wines, Birmingham. Poured a clear dark caramel colour with a bubbly, off-white head. The aroma is a little dry and malty. The flavour is plain, wih some resin and slightly medicinal. An interesting experiment that didn’t work. An IPA without hops is not an IPA. No real flavour, no body, not very exciting at all and hardly refreshing. Needs to be served cool to get anything from it.

Pours orange with a light head that completely disappears within a few minutes. Smells spicy and fruity. Very sweet and malty with almost no bitterness. Sticky texture with little carbonation.

Ober (2812) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - APR 15, 2013
A clear orange/amber colored beer, with a small beige head. The aroma is spicy like clove with fruits and some hop. The taste is sweet spicy, a little bitter. The aftertaste is sweet with spices.

Bright clear amber beer, little white head. Light palate, dry and a little crisp. Sweetish herbs, touch of mint. Floral notes, little lavender. Whisper of bubblegum ester. Grains of paradise. Dry finish. This is a Gruit surely! Quite a sweet one at that.

A very interesting one. I think it could be pine, maybe some juniper berries? Quite flat, no foam (when it got a little warmer, it resembled congac).

BierFiend (248) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2013
Not good. Pours amber with little to no head. Not much of a smell at all, little bit of hops. Taste salty on the tongue with a little hops on the back end. Really disappointing.

Lowenbrau (2411) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - MAR 29, 2013
330ml bottle. Herbal tea, with some head. Some bitterness, weird flavours, too herbal, light body and carbonation. A really non pleasant one.

bierkoning (10800) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAR 19, 2013
Bottle. Orange amber color. Red berries and twigs in the aroma. Red berries, wood and twigs in the spicy flavor. Mint. Limited bitterness. Interesting experiment.

Abio (1678) - Waasland, BELGIUM - MAR 15, 2013
Comparing the two beers like it should be probably be. Thy both smell heavily herbal. The black label even unpleasant. But at the taste the flying dog is slightly favorite. But both are not my kind of beer for sure.

The_Osprey (2589) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2013 Oct 2012 - bottle. No hops, replaced with herbs and roots etc. Sweet, sasparilla, tastes like incense smells. Slight apple juice taste. Gives me a tickly throat. Doesn’t taste like beer. Isn’t very nice really.
