After two tempestuous months aging aboard BrewDog founder James Wattís 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.

Bottle from brewdog.com. pours a rich amber. Blackcurrant aroma and a tasty subtle rum flavour. Lasted very well for 3 years old.

dimenhetfield (2487) - , Florida, USA - DEC 9, 2011
Pint bottle poured into glass. This is my type of IPA. Now my senses may be off slightly since Iím just coming off a 2 day head cold and my nostrils have been filled with god knows what, but I really like the aroma of this. Slight honey and hops mixed with a bit of citrus. Flavor is damn tasty as well. The hops donít jump right out at you from the get go but slowly make itís presence know on the back end. Easy sipping beer.

Nightfall (1306) - Hamburg, GERMANY - JUL 28, 2011
Bottle @ RBESG 2009 Harlequin, Sheffield , and also bottle at home: Amber colored with average off-white head. Heavily hoppy aroma and so is the taste but backed by a strong sweet malty background. Bitter finish

gyllenbock (5601) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 20, 2011
Bottle. Dark brownish/orange with a large white head. A lot of malt in both the aroma and taste, not that hoppy. I think that the bottle was on the old side. Still quite good but not that fresh anymore.

rosenbergh (8271) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 3, 2011
330 ml bottle. Finland.
Hazy amber colour with small white head. Mild fruity/berry hoppy aroma with some alcohol. Cranberries, berry hoppy and malty flavour. Quite mediocre IPA for BrewDog. I want my Ä12 back.

tiong (4564) - Espoo, FINLAND - APR 1, 2011
330ml bottle @ Kaunis Kampela, Helsinki

Pours dark orange with a tiny head. Aroma is woody and has hints of oak. Taste is malty with woody and oaky notes and hints of vanilla. Smooth, salty finish. Not your typical IPA, but a nice beer nevertheless.

Blairgus (3033) - California, USA - MAR 11, 2011
dark amber and slightly hazy. smells mainly of sweet malt, hints of raisin and less so hints of hops tastes like hop stems, w/ a kind of astringent bitterness has huge hop finish. by the end i was picking up oak in the flavour and finish. this is a pretty good beer. not amazing but lots better than many. i certainly donít think itís worth £9 a bottle!

BrewBoxer (2399) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 19, 2010
Last of my 3 bottles. This one has been in my possession over a year. ($25 per bottle). Pours a nice dark tan color with a thick head. Smells floral and citrusy with notes of cereal and toast. Taste is not overly hoppy, but you get that in the aftertase. This beer is not that extreme of an IPA as the story made it out to be, but itís quite good nonetheless. Donít think Iíd spend this much again for the novelty.

Bottled 33cl. Salty hoppy aroma. Good bitterness. Dry finish. I really enjoyed this IPA.
