COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Pours a translucent yellow with a one finger white head. Nose is sweet and citrusy with a grassy quality. Flavor shows citrus rind and sweet malt with a grassy bitterness.

Thanks to OSCF for sharing! Pours clear amber coloured with a nice off white bubbly head. Aromas of wood, caramel, pine and spice. Flavours of sweet malt, caramel, bitter hops and grain. Tasty brew.

Nice color. Aroma is hoppy, a bit floral and some caramel sweetness. Flavor is balance but a bit light and thin. Some hops and caramel malts. Overall, nothing special.

Another generous treat from OldStyleCubFan. Yay, Todd! Pours reddish brown with head on the small side. British hop and malt character, with the hops not surprisingly washed out a bit, but in a way that makes sense. Nice, almost flat palate, but in a good way. Fun beer.

Thanks Santa! Box arrived during a party, so why not open this up? Light cottony nose, muddy mustard with a bright slick white head. Cracker malt and a touch salty, subdued earthy hops. Thanks.

Pours dark amber with white head. Nose is hops, caramel malts and ocean? Perhaps, itís just psychosomatic but I think I smell ocean. Anyway, taste is caramel malt and nice hop balance.

Thanks so much to Todd for sharing yet another awesome treat! Cool ass homebrew label on this one, a nice contrast to the sleek Euro design of the previously sampled BrewDog. Hazy copper pour with moderate carbonation. Crisp and mildly faded hops in the nose (old IPA indeed). Just a hint of citrus there too. Mouthfeel is nice and smooth, almost casky. While the hops are certainly not very bright, the flavor was enjoyable even so, with no hints of bland oxidation but simply a mellowed brew that was comfy with its chewy malts and bitter hops. Cool idea for a beer, nice drinking too.

Nice caramel coloured body with a thin tan head and a bit of opacity and a few bubbles rising. Aroma of oldish hops, tons of malt, alcohol, raisins, nuts and a bit of pitted fruits. Medium-bodied; Relatively flat (bu that seems right) with a light european hoppiness, some mild sugars and a heavy dose of malt and alcohol. Aftertaste is nice and clean - malt coupled with a good amount of hops, showing a bit of an old ale character of must, basement and some pitted fruits - this definitely shows the journey around the Atlantic Ocean! I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased for around US$30 at Half Time in Poughkeepsie, New York, sampled at home in Washington on Christmas in 2009.

paid $28 for a 12oz bottle and was quite excited to try this experiment.. Pours a hazy pale gold, with lots of white foam .. . honey, wood, pine, sea water in the mouth .. . has held up well, brewdog is awesome.. . Itís not illegal. Itís frowned upon, like masturbating on an airplane.

courtesy of madmitch76, thanks homie! nice pour, looks good with an ample head. the aroma is very subdued and light, not much to work off of there, untuil you swirl with you hand over the glass and then capture-sniff, then the aroma is there. the taste is surprisingly more present, nice bitterness, slightly creamy, medium body, drinks very easily, though not all that complex. though im pretty sure complexity wasnít the focus of this brew, i believe it founds its destination.
