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.

Pours a hazy golden amber, negligible head or lacing. Big up front piney hop flavor, big bittering. Lots of character in this one. Excellent IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Maersk (17) - MOLDOVA - FEB 13, 2016
On tap in Brewdog Soho. Classic Imperial IPA in my view. Hops everywhere. Solid body with a good, long bitter finish. It is really good, but I could find it interesting.

sinte (459) - Udine, ITALY - FEB 11, 2016
Bottle 0.33 L. Deep amber-to-brown body with average, frothy, off-white head, mostly lasting with nice lacing; average density of tiny bubbles. Heeavy hoppy (citrus, grapefruit, flowers) and moderate-to-heavy malty (caramel) aroma. Heavy bitter and moderate sweet flavour with long lasting bitter (roasted?) finish with some alcoholic harshness. Medium body with oily texture; soft carbonation; moderate alcoholic warming in the finish.

UjoKlobasa (239) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - FEB 6, 2016
Bottle. Orange color, hazy liquid, white head. Aroma is nothing special, hops only. Heavy bitter, also in finish. Alcohol is hidden. Good, but not great.

MayumiH (592) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2016
Bottle at home. Big bold caramel malt backbone. Subtle grapefruit hint to the nose. Bitter boozy finish. Delicious :P

Tognetta (534) - Campinas, BRAZIL - JAN 27, 2016
Ambar escura, turva, espuma bege de boa formação e persistência. Aroma maltado, lúpulo evidente e tendendo para resinal mas com leve toque frutado, manga, pinho, melado, açucarada, complexa, alcoólica. No paladar o dulçor e amargor são de média intensidade, álcool aparente mas bem inserido. Corpo levemente licoroso, baixa carbonatação. Aftertaste frutado e resinal de boa média duraçao, álcool continua presente, amargor cresce um pouco, dulçor constante. Apesar do teor alcoólico desce bem, boa !

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2016 Levando em consideração que é uma IPA e de teor alcoólico bem alto (9,2%), eu esperava uma cerveja mais "difícil" de beber. No entanto, preparado-se para uma cerveja desse estilo e com essa graduação, ela me pareceu amarga e com sabor "marcante" na medida. Uma boa IPA
