COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
After two tempestuous months aging aboard BrewDog founder James Watts 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.

Bottle. Deep dark-orange. Aroma is hoppy with some cookie sweetness and a touch of calcium oxide. Taste is also hoppy. But the malt thing going on in the background is the really interesting thing. Woody and smoky. Great balance.

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 a dark burnt orange/amber color with golden orange/peach hues when held to a light source and a frothy two finger off-white yellowish head that has excellent retention, only slowly fading into a thick lasting cap that leaves chunks of soapy lacing in its path. Toasty malt aroma with hints of caramel, rye and biscuit. Subtle hops but they seem to have faded considerably during the journey. Oak is fairly prominent in the nose with a healthy dose of vanilla. Subtle pine and citrus notes. Slightly resinous medium body with a good bit of dry bitterness up front followed by a slightly toasty malt backbone and dry piny finish. The hops have held up better in flavor than in the nose with some dry piny and sweet citrus character. Hints of grapefruit, mango and orange peel. The bitterness lingers throughout but is well balanced by a roasted caramel malt backbone with hints of sweet caramel and rye. The oak aging is evident but is subtle and not very earthy, resulting in a lot of vanilla character. Very well balanced and maybe a bit too sweet but this is an interesting experiment that worked out pretty well. Kind of gimmicky but definitely unique and flavorful. Not worth the outrageous price tag but Im glad I had a chance to try it.

bottle shared by Argo0 at RBWG, pours dirty blond with a medium white head. Aroma is strong pine and herbal hop tones. Flavor is toasted malt, pine hops, some wood elements. A decent IPA.

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.

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 its quite good nonetheless. Dont think Id spend this much again for the novelty.

[330ml bottle, Cornelius Beer&Wine, Edinburgh] Firstly Atlantic IPA really stands out due to the best label Ive ever seen on a beer bottle, from a drawing by Johanna Basford. Secondly it stands out due to the price (10 for 330ml). Thirdly, it stands out because of the taste Atlantic IPA is fantastic. A strong chestnut brown colour gives an indication of the conditioning, and the aroma is wonderful prunes, malt, hops, heavy alcohol pushing through. On the palate its bitter at first with a brief syrupy sweetness, before the bitter aftertaste takes over. More prunes and alcohol come on the far aftertaste. Very complex and like some kind of hearty alcoholic nectar. Very good indeed. [24082009]

Light hazed muddy brown a little green when hed to the light. The sweetest, saltiest, maltiest and balmiest mild ale flavour with amazing toffee aftertaste deep and powdery. Fun. That is good

Appearance: Pours a cloudy, yeasty amber with a awesome looking fluffy foamy white head. Aroma: A strong whiff of earthy Euro hops and an equal sized amount of sweet and spicy malts. Taste: Starts with a subtle bitterness, followed by a moderate amount of caramel malts and a layer of roasty chocolate notes. Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and slightly creamy. Overall: To date, the best BrewDog beer I have had. I enjoyed the character the beer had in its appearance and taste.
