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.

ClearHead (5) - FINLAND - JUL 5, 2016 does not count
Bottle 330ml from the local alco monopoly. Nice amber color, good lacy head. Pleasant fruity aroma, some pine. Taste fairly sweet, mango, grapefruit. Pine again. Hoppiness surprisingly balanced, lingers with a slight dryness. Smooth, alcohol is well hidden. Well worth the highly taxed Finnish price. Probably one bottle at a time is sufficient though. Will buy another one eventually, thats for sure.

Aus der Flasche getrunken (von Brew Dog direkt bezogen). Amberkupfern im Glas mit stabilem, dichten Schaum. In der Nase leucht säuerliche Fruchtigkeit. Im Mund nicht enden wollende Geschmacksexplosionen. Bitterkeit ( zum Glück) nicht so lange anhaltend.

Aroma isn’t too strong, though my nose may be off today. Appearance is a lovely cherry read with snow white head. The taste initially is fruity that falls into a nutty after burn. Overall a very pleasant drink.

Amazing smell. The hop use in this beer is astonishing, smells so sweet and juicy, the flavour is as strong as the beer is. Juicy, bitter with warming alcohol... Ok I won’t use brewdog trendy hype words to describe this beer, but this one is worthy of its name.

330ml bottle from Scotmid. Small white head, decent lacing. Clear amber body. Nose is pine, menthol, stone fruit, caramel. Flavour is stewed fruit, burnt sugar, molasses, caramel, loads of bitterness. Light carbonation, good chewy mouthfeel, a bit sticky. Tremendous, massive IPA.

Bottle. Possibly the best IPA I’ve had on these shores. In the American style this is bold, hoppy, fizzy and strong.
