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.

Bottle Shared at Ryan & Max’s Tasting @ Pauls. Pours an orange copper body with a white head. Pine, dry earth kindling, a bit oxidized with some herbal but skunk y greens. A buddy vine y spicy finish. Odd ball, i enjoyed it.

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.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 4, 2010
12 oz bottle shared by j12601. Pours a medium copper and a decent lasting off white head. Aroma is nutty toasty malts, some staleness- nothing quite fresh- oak vanilla, some earthy piney hops- not over the top just medium to light. Flavor is toasty, tannins, vanilla, oak, medium caramel some carapils,medium sweetness, toffee earthy hops, grass, mint pine, some salty mineral and dust character, and light citrus-some tobacco hints as well- medium bitterness. Just tastes like either an aged IPA or an IPA that someone didn’t add enough hops to.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2009
330ml Bottle: Aroma of malts, cocoa, light hops, light toffee, and light wood. Not the typical IPA aroma at all. Poured orange in color with a large, rocky, beige head that diminished a bit but lasted throughout. Cloudy. Slightly sparkling. Several medium-sized particles. Flavor is lightly sweet and light to medium bitter. Tastes of malts, chocolate, hops, pine, wood, light toffee, slight vanilla and a hint of alcohol. Medium body. Average texture. Average carbonation. Malt, wood, hops, slight chocolate, and slight toffee finish is very slightly dry. 8.5%ABV is quite well hidden.

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 6, 2009
(Bottled) Hazy amber with a medium, quite lasting head. Aromatic hops (British-style) in the nose, with some added exotic fruitiness. Flavor is grainy-malty, fruity, moderately bitter, salty-woody-aromatic, and drying towards the grassy-bitter finish. Some minor gluey and roasty notes. Medium to full body with soft carbonation. Pretty good, but slightly unrefined as a whole. Feels like something you’d get by mixing aged North Bridge Extreme and Bigfoot.
