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.

Ah, the bad decisions I make when Iíve had a few beers. Bought at the PP Bottle Shop for over $25, no date on the bottle. Clear medium orange with a one and a half finger beige head, fair retention. Doughy yeast and caramel toast malts up front with plenty of old herbal, woody, and earthy stale hops--definitely on its way out. Thereís also a bit of chocolate and lemon tang. Flavor has a bigger tang, but other than a bunch of bittering hops, there is little more than some earth and grass--I wished they added some aroma hops to this--not that itíd matter since this bottle is apparently over 6 months old already. Dry finish, alcohol masked well. Bitterness peaked at a 4. For more than twice the price and half the volume of ridiculously priced 3F Dreadnaught, this is one hell of an overpriced gimmick. Sorry Brewdog, I will not be duped again.

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.

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.

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.

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.

TEJA (2469) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 14, 2010
High fluff off white head. Typical pale color. Big English hop aroma. Burnt malt taste with a good bitterness and well fermented with small amount of residual sweetness and a medium body. Oak is clearly present.

Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 30, 2009
330ml bottle at home with tashi, 10th Aug 09. Copper with a thick magnolia head. Perfume, clean linen, warm biscuit aromas waft up as the bubbles subside. Toffee & doughy sweetness with vanilla oakiness as you take it into your mouth and then a tongue tingling bitterness. As it glides down your throat, a gentle warmth fills your cheeks. Great lasting dryness after a few mouthfuls. Smooth & rich. Doesnít take like its true strength either. Doesnít bash you over the head, just beautifully seduces you.

Bottle from Cornelius. Hazy orange colored brew. Citric hoppy aroma. Flavor is hops, grapefruit. Nice.

McNeillR (2233) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 18, 2015
Greasy, hazy bronze and a thin bubbly head. This was never a punchy, impaling IPA but now is a neat sherry sheen on the nose and soapy grapefruit. Still quite punchy bitterness, but mellowed sweetness. Wee pop of carbonation but a farily solid thick mouthfeel. Finishes lean peppery and a bit clovey and a linger of brassy, dirty coin.

Bottle, Sir Tadalot Top 50 Scottish Tasting, Cornelius...2009?

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.
