COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

DocLock (7703) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 30, 2010
Bottle courtesy of PUB’N via none of your Goddamned business. Pours hazy deep coppery orange with 2-finger off-white head. Nose is heavy resiny hops, fruit, some earthy and acidic notes, and some mild woody hints. Tastes very dry, very bitter, hoppy, with some fruit, dry floral, and scotch whisky notes. Stays bone dry as it warms, and the hops never let up either. Late heat makes this one a true scotch/beer hybrid.

JoeTheYounger (1136) - Lake Arrowhead, California, USA - FEB 9, 2010
Bottle shared by DuffmanSW at Stone Bistro. Poured a clear godlen color with lacey white head. Interesting funky aroma, taste was weird with bitterness. Overall not that great. Glad I got to try. Wasn’t worth the $36 for sure.

Golden orange with a lacing white head...Aroma is very light, don’t really pick much up maybe soe slight citrus...Flavor is bitter with a dry finish..Thin with lots of carbonation.. Cool to try but wouldn’t pay the $30 to drink this again.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JAN 30, 2010
Bottle: Beautiful bottle label. Pours a nice orange hue with a puffy white head. The nose is musty and earthy with some very ’noble’ hops, lots of deep creamy body hops and a light citrus note. Nice balance to the malts in the mouthfeel and a light snappy tail with some of the hops and malts. Seems more of an experience than a great beer. Good idea though, who else has explored simply the history of a style to exploit prices? Although I’m sure they probably took a loss in the end, as did everyone who ever carried/bought or drank this beer, it’s still a good idea and an interesting story to tell. Earthy british IPAs by boat though aren’t a novel idea. Every british bitter is undergoing the same process as we speak for regular prices.

kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 30, 2010
12oz bottle (though the label says 1 pint, 9.4 oz) purchased at Olbutikken in Sept 2009, before I know it would show up in the states. Pours a slightly hazy copper orange color, topped with a medium sized off white head. Aroma is mild and fairly earthy, with oak, vanilla, and earthy hops. Flavor begins with caramel and nuts, which are backed by grass and herbs. Earthy hops are present, but mild, and cling to the palate for a while. Cool experiment, but results aren’t all that exciting.
