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.

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!

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.

Travlr (21427) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - NOV 26, 2010
12 once bottle, shared with Josh, Ryan, and the newly-turned-21 club at Paradiso Georgetown. Cloudy golden color, edge head. Aroma of bourbon, oak, rhum. Taste is very malty, with smooth brandy and pine, slight edge of lime. Interesting and delicious.

Alphadelic (2164) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 10, 2010
Light hazed muddy brown a little green when heíd to the light. The sweetest, saltiest, maltiest and balmiest mild ale flavour with amazing toffee aftertaste deep and powdery. Fun. That is good

yngwie (16503) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 1, 2010
Bottle. A clear, golden beer topped by a finger-thick off-white head. Chocolate, toffee, a whiff of peat and some piney, resiny hops on the nose. Definitely not your everyday IPA aroma. The flavor is sweet and toffeeish, some hints of vanilla blending in, and it lacks on both bitterness and hop flavor. Smooth, medium body and a rather roasted finish. Interesting and nice, but not my kind of IPA. 100611

From a bottle (28$, 12 oz.) poured an amber color with a good amount of head. Nice hoppy flavor with a lasting finish.
