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.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 14, 2010
Bottle courtesy of jtclockwork. Pours a hazy copper with a tan head. Smells of restrained, sweet, juicy citrus, some perfumy hints, some spicy touches. Tastes of pepper, earthy, some ghostly hints of citrus, resiny touches, some tea hints. Finishes peppery and bitter. A fairly solid IPA. Too bad it’s so expensive.

Bottle, not quite sure why these were 25$ -40$ dollars for a twelve ounce, thanks jeff for sharing. Golden pour with white head. Decent pine and citrus flavored ipa, good for 6-8$ but this is a little ridic,.

Based on the appearance of this beer I am very hopeful, it is beautiful! Perfect amount of head clear, I’m ready for this. Then I got very little aroma out of the beer, and it was in a snifter! What I did get was faint pine and citrus hops. My first sip and all I got was malt, second sip... slightly sour? Third sip, oh there’s the bitterness of the hops, I nearly forgot this was an IPA. Once I got through that the beer came together, it was a little malt, nice bitter back bone though, a little soured, and then just a tiny bit of hop flavor which wasn’t very pronounced just hiding in the back. Not knowing what an Old IPA should taste like this could be a great example, however it’s not a great modern IPA though I would drink it again if it weren’t so flipping expensive!

Shared at Bullits place. The aroma has citric hops, some caramel malt. Hazy, copper coloured beer with an off-white head. The taste is bitter, citric hoppy. Dry finish. Okay.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 24, 2010
Bottle shared by fonefan on 8/28/09: Transparent copper bronze with a well-lacing white head. Aroma of grassy piny hops and lightly sweet doughy toasty caramel with a hint of wood. Starts with a light sweetness and good citrusy hoppy balance before a crisp drier bittersweet finish. Has a hint of saltiness. A pretty good IPA, but nowhere near worth the $20+/12oz price tag in the US.

UPDATED: JAN 31, 2012 330ml bottle (Pikkulintu, Helsinki)
7 beautiful woody aroma, a touch hazelnutty. Some butter later.
4 deep orange, healthy persistent head.
8 Freezer ice retronasals, some nettly hops too. tastes beautifully aged, mellowed and woody. Slight touch of walnuts and vanilla.
4 Pleasant carbonation. Smooth body. drying nuttiness. Finish walnutty and mellow, but also massively hopped
15 my god, they’ve cracked it. stunningly good beer, and the taste is all beer, not doped with whisky unlike the other tastiest things from Brewdog. Mellower as it warms, even some chocolate later.
