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.

Slightly hazy deep orange liquid with a slightly off white head. Aroma: fresh hops, pine, citrus, grapefruit, lots of caramel, and sweet notes. Taste: huge bitterness with grapefruit finish and lots of citrus, pine and sweet caramel. Balanced and weel made. Cheers!

For an IPA, this is a great beer. A regular tipple of mine. I prefer dark beers, but this is a beer that has helped me move into "lighter" beers. I can’t think of many IPAs that are better.

@ Havregatan. Flaska från Systembolaget. Söt smak med grapefrukt och kåda? Ganska fyllig med stor beska.

Patag0niak (8) - SPAIN - APR 20, 2013 does not count
Botella 330 ml. Servida a 1000 m de altitud. Color ámbar intenso algo densa. Espuma consistente color caramelo que disminuye rápido. Ligero aroma afrutado y recuerdos a especias. Trago intenso, resinoso. Algo de pomelo y pino. Amargor fuerte y persistente que le da potencia desequilibrada hacia el lúpulo. Imperial IPA que da lo que promete.

Wow, what a big, beautiful beer. Thick, malty, clean hoppy finish, not too bitter, but bitter enough, complex comfortable hop profile. Really nice. Strong.

Amazing big taste but balanced enough to deliver a pleasant drinking experience. Aroma is full of sharp, citrusy hop. Taste is sweet and a little cloying but ends with a strong bitterness. Flavours of citrus and burnt caramel. Mouthfeel is big and round. An excellent beer, really enjoyed it.

Lilja (2499) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 14, 2013
En mycket kraftig IPA med väldigt mycket humle. Är dock förvånad över att beskan inte var så tilltagen. Fruktig och syrlig en aning karamellig. En mycket uppfriskande IPA men jag saknar lite klarhet och tropisk fruktighet.

WVHouseofBeer (973) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 13, 2013
A prototypical Double IPA. Pours a beautiful burnt amber color with a frothy off-white head that leaves a lot of lacing. Aromas were slightly muted but the flavors were full of bitter citrusy hops and balanced nicely by the malts. Medium bodied with a very bitter finish. An excellent beer, but of course it’s BrewDog, so I would expect nothing less.
