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.

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.

bierkoning (12581) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUL 26, 2009
Bottle @ RBESG Grand Tasting 2009. Malty, slightly hoppy citric aroma with a hint of seasalt. Seems massively hopped but the hop character is eased down by notes of seasalt and citrus. Malty, but absolutely dry. Excellent!

Christian (12958) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 24, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2010 Slightly hazy amber/orange with a big and lasting head. The aroma is malty with some fruit that seems to be both marmalade yeast esters and peach/citrus hops. Slightly vineous and with a note of cedar-like wood. The flavour is filled with toast and biscuit malt and lovely English esters, touches of wood and lots of hops. Very bitter finish making it a really good "English IPA". A hoppier, barrel-aged Fullers Vintage?

Botella, thanks for sharing this one Pinball. Unclear orange looking colour, nice medium white head leaving a good lacing. Fruity sweet hoppy woody aroma. Good mouthfeel indeed. The flavour has a very good hoppiness with wood, a pleasant sweetness, fruits, toasty malt and some spice.
