This Imperial India Pale Ale Rocks... Hardcore! But donít 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.

A nice IPA for Brewdog brewery. Nice bronze and deep copper beer, with a high and heavy white head. With a great complexity when you smell it, you feel the hops. Taste : after the first taste you have a hops explosion with a great complexity, great bitterness and very long on month. This is an extreme bitterness beer with 150IBU !

Nice amber colour with decent head. Aroma is full of hops. Flavour is hoppy, not too sweet, fruits, spices, bitter.

A nice hoppy beer. Good white head when poured into a glass. Nice bitterness in the end and the long after taste. Maybe a bit grassy hops. Nice colour.

Very good beer. I would compare it to Modus Hopderim. Very nice hop and carmal taste to it.

Yesterdayís lesson was sugar bomb doppels, todayís is the opposite side of the beer masochist coin, the hop bomb. Thoroughly smells of citrus and resin. Shocking bitterness, 150BUs according to the brewer, but its hard gauge at this level. However, it still has a nice malty counterpoint, although even the sweet component is bitter as well. Itís a pretty clear orange, only a shade darker than the Punk IPA. One of the driest, most astringent brews I can remember. Itís best to drink some water before hand to really enjoy this. Probably the most extreme double india Iíve had.

tombyars (1348) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - APR 12, 2012
Tasted this at the Brewdog taproom, Glasgow in January 2012. Keg, draft flow system. Clear ruby red in colour with a creamy white head. Strong dusty sweet aroma of sherbert powder, long in intensity. Rich resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Mixed malt complex gives a rich maltloaf base with notes of pear drops and glycerine fruit. Tropical fruit salad flavours abound in the sweet tangy aftertaste with kiwi, pineapple and passion fruit present. Finish is malty and very robust with sweet candy floss taste long in the palate. An excellent IPA and highly recommended.

Nice malty smell, smooth mouthfeel and a good hoppy taste. Aftertaste is long and sweet. A well rounded drink

Pours a nice red amber colour with a nice citrus and fruity aroma. Full body with great caramel presence and a strong bitter taste from the first till the last drop. A great IPA from the UK using mainly american hops.
