After two tempestuous months aging aboard BrewDog founder James Watt’s mackerel trawler on the North Atlantic, Atlantic IPA will be the first commercially available, genuine sea-aged IPA in two centuries - a project which is typical of the scale, audacity and boldness characteristic of BrewDog in its quest to take the UK beer industry by storm.

Greasy, hazy bronze and a thin bubbly head. This was never a punchy, impaling IPA but now is a neat sherry sheen on the nose and soapy grapefruit. Still quite punchy bitterness, but mellowed sweetness. Wee pop of carbonation but a farily solid thick mouthfeel. Finishes lean peppery and a bit clovey and a linger of brassy, dirty coin.

Theydon_Bois (14315) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2014
Bottle at home, thanks to an IP trade with Christian, 06/10/14. Lightly hazed amber with a decent beige covering. Nose is caramel, light spice, sherry notes, light tropical fruit tones, earthy malt. Taste comprises caramel malt, sweet tones, faint booze, lick of honey, light oxidisation but not overly unplesant, dark orange marmalade rinds. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, sweet laced bitterness in the close. Ok, drinkable enough considering the age.

Backlog. Bottle from Systembolaget. As many before me has mentioned, this is more of a gimmick than a good beer.

ramboraffe (1467) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 10, 2014
A well balanced IPA, unusual with non-american hops, making more space for malt.

Beer5000 (5310) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 2, 2013
Bottle sampled in 2010. Almost clear golden body with a nice off-white head. Aroma has chocolate malt and mild oak. Flavor is quite rich malty, fruity, caramel and a pleasant more subdued bitterness. Nice body and soft in aftertaste. Not very typical IPA but I find it somehow complex and pleasant.

brokensail (14042) - San Leandro, California, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Orange pour with a white head. Fruity sweetness, caramel, and some floral hops. Yeast, cardboard, and some water. Meh. The flavor is very sweet and malty. Caramel, bread, and sugar. Sweet fruit esters, mild citrus, some floral hops, cardboard, and yeast.

BBB63 (6507) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - OCT 4, 2012
Bottle served in my GI IPA tulip: Pours a slightly murky amber hue with a falling head and minimal lace. The aroma has notes of stale hops, bile and vomit, funky cheese, salt and pepper, bready rye dough and a hint of spearmint. The taste is not as bad as the aroma some earthy and minty notes that are actually quite pleasant but then that vomity acidity makes a presence a ruined it once again. Did this beer even had a "prime"? I sort of doubt it but if it did it then is long past it. AVOID LIKE THE BLACK DEATH. Even if rated as an English Old Ale this would be a substandard effort.
