This Imperial India Pale Ale Rocks... Hardcore! But don’t feel obliged to take our word for it, this little bottle has a grandiloquent story to tell. 2,204 malted Maris Otter grains gave all they had to offer the world to provide the robustly delicate toffee malt canvas for the ensuing epic. 4 Hop Cones willingly sacrificed themselves in fiery cauldron that is our brew kettle to ensure your mouth is left feeling punished and puckering for more. 9,900,000,000 yeast cells frantically fermented their little hearts out as the sugars were magically turned into alcohol in the dark depths of our fermentation tanks. 2 humans and 1 canine companion are relatively happy with the results
Note this is for the new petrol blue coloured labels with white lettering, which is 9.2%. Ratings for the older bottles with with bright blue label and black lettering should go under the first edition.

Russo (1868) - Hemhofen, Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - JUN 12, 2015
Amber color with a nice white head that keeps a lacing for a long time. Aroma is hoppy and fruity, hints of orange, citrus and sweetness. FLavor is hoppy and malty, no alcohol at all, completely masked alcohol. Low carbonation and medium to full body with pleasant and long sweet bitterness.

Clear copper with a yellowish head. Pine and resin with hints of citrus and lots of sweetness in aroma. Bitter with licorice and raisins. A long and smooth after taste. A favourite.

slowrunner77 (7078) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUN 10, 2015
hoppy aroma - fruity and pine and some good hop stank. Seems like this may be the freshest Brewdog beer I’ve had, as I have been less than impressed with their hoppy offerings previously.

Taste is very bitter, fruity, sweet and little caramel.Aftertaste is long, very bitter, astringent and low sweetness.

Amber. Medium beige head, low retention. On the nose, caramel found in a field of flowers. Sweet hits the front of the mouth but immediately well balanced bitter settles on the back. Solid body and texture.

jamaty (1234) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 5, 2015
Color ambar, clara, apenas espuma. Aroma muy marcado, fuertemente floral y a naranja amarga. Cuerpo. Y sabor brutal que llena la boca de aromas. Mandarina, naranja, y flores. Super amarga y contundente. Cada trago una experiencia. Largo postgusto amargo. Una IPA llevada al extremo. Tiene que gustar el estilo. A mi me encanta.
