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.

KnutAlbert (6377) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 1, 2009
Bottled. Hazy gold/ruby beer. Modearate aroma, a whiff of yeast, perhaps. Spicy, the elements blend very well together - shaken, not stirred. Fine crisp bitter zing in the finish. Very drinkable.

Cletus (6355) - 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.

gyllenbock (5796) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 20, 2011
Bottle. Dark brownish/orange with a large white head. A lot of malt in both the aroma and taste, not that hoppy. I think that the bottle was on the old side. Still quite good but not that fresh anymore.

DonMagi (5595) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2009
Bottle in the rake. Aroma has an inital kick of chocolate malt + some toffee malts, but a lightly tannic woodyness and floral citrus hoppyness comes in and smoothes it out, some yeasty esters too. Taste is very interesting, toffee malts comes but are washed away quickly by a citrus even verging on plasticy hop character thats then cleaned off with bitterness. The alc is really well hidden here and the carbonation is very soft. I could have easily sat and drank the whole bottle in a matter of minutes, but i was working so had to go sit in the sun.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - NOV 24, 2009
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.

Borresteijn (5418) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 23, 2009
RBESG Sheffield 2009 Grand Tasting at the Harlequin. Hazy orange colour, white head. Aroma of fruity hops, wood, caramel. Flavour is sweet, fruity, wood, a bit salty, caramel, bitter funkiness coming through in the end. Weird.

Bragesnak (5395) - Aarhus, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2010
From Vinens Verden, Odense, DK. Bottled, 250910. Orange-amber with white head. Aroma of malt and fruit. Flavor with spices and (vintage-) hop balance
