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.

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.

Antagligen den bästa dubbel IPA jag smakat. Fantastisk doft av tallkottar, tropiska frukter och malt. initialt en mäktig maltsötma, mjuk kolsyra och senare kommer en långvarig beska som sitter kvar otroligt länge.

Moebbels (652) - FINLAND - APR 12, 2013
UPDATED: APR 13, 2013 Ever so slightly hazy amber body with white foam. Smells of citrus, pine, grass and herbs. Surprisingly malty and sweet taste. Has a nice hoppy dryness at the end that remains for a while. A delightful beer.

mrmarrow (13) - Toruñ, POLAND - APR 12, 2013
Piney aroma with hints of citrus fruits and a little bit of alcohol. Well carbonated, copper liquid. Full body, long, bitter finish (very pleasant and worth remembering). Bottle.

Beerdrinker79 (1944) - Idaho, USA - APR 8, 2013
11.2 oz. bottle- Pours slightly hazy orangeish red with a two finger head. Aroma is in your face malt and hops, but not the clean crisp hops that I personally prefer. The taste is smooth, somewhat creamy, light sticky malt, sweet and candy like, less bitterness and hops in general than I was expecting,150 IBu’s, I have a hard time believing that, if that is true they really disguised it with malt, because this is so light in the taste with what seems like very little hops. This is also much better than I was expecting, I thought it was going to be way too malty, but this is nice actually.

makromaniak (142) - Tilburg, NETHERLANDS - APR 8, 2013
An amber pour with an off-white head. Taste is fruity, hay, hoppy, pine and some caramel. Long bitter finish but not nice.

morangochris (19) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 5, 2013
On tap Copper colour, thin head, low carbonation, small bubble. Nice and complex nose of sweet malts and hops. Taste is very rich, complex and long, however it’s not my taste as the complex taste isn’t well balanced. But I appreciate the beer, it’s an other example for seaching the edges of innovations and creating new tastes.

11.2 oz bottle - pours clear orange with medium-small white head. Big malty biscuit aromas mixed with orange peel, lemon and nice tangy aromatic hops. Taste is orange resin, giving way to cooler bitterness. Lingering bitter notes. Medium bodied, long finish. Very good.

Reimer96 (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 2, 2013
Pours a hazy copper amber with a frothy off white head. Aroma of grassy hops, rich sweet malts, toffee and a hint of booze. Taste is grassy hops, caramel, rich malts, toffee and a slight boozy warming alcohol finish. Very smooth and pleasant to drink.
