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.

sayravai (4677) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 6, 2009
(Bottled) Hazy amber with a medium, quite lasting head. Aromatic hops (British-style) in the nose, with some added exotic fruitiness. Flavor is grainy-malty, fruity, moderately bitter, salty-woody-aromatic, and drying towards the grassy-bitter finish. Some minor gluey and roasty notes. Medium to full body with soft carbonation. Pretty good, but slightly unrefined as a whole. Feels like something you’d get by mixing aged North Bridge Extreme and Bigfoot.

TBone (13700) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 29, 2009
Bottled (from Utobeer, no batch or BB). Amber color, big cloudy off-white head. Caramel, piney hops and yeast in the nose. Chewey caramel malty flavor with quite robust body. Some tobacco ash, piney hops. Quick finish. Easy to drink. Suprisingly more caramelly (with sea wind touch) than hoppy bitter.

thebeertourist (5070) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2009
Bottle from Utobeer, ABV 8.5%. Hazy amber with a big yellowish head. Comfortable citrus, vanilla and caramel aroma and flavours. More oaky vanilla as well as vinous notes in the mouth. Dy throughout. This beer does not scream, but has a very complex personality. I rate that highly.

[RBESG, Sheffield]
Grand Tasting @ The Harlequin, Sheffield.
Pours clear golden with a nice, creamy, white head. Aroma has oak, honey, pine, hops, grapefruit. Medium carbonation, great creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is wonderfully bitter, piney, oaky, light tartness and very crisp with some fat, doughy malts. Nice, long bitterness in the finish.
