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.

Davhgbrew (948) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 27, 2014
Dark amber/copper color. Medium body. Flavor is surprisingly balanced for having 150 ibus. Aroma is of earthy and piney hops...bold. Flavors are big caramel and malt sweetness over huge hop bitterness. 9.2abv is well masked or blended. Sneaky strong awesome brew!

0,33l Flasche. Orange Braunes Bier mit kleiner Schaumkrone. Riecht fruchtig nach Papaya und Malz, schmeckt fruchtig malzig und sehr Hopfenbetont!

makapaka (9) - POLAND - MAY 21, 2016 does not count
Butelka 0,33 warka do 29/10/2016. Piana ładna drobna, średniowysoka po 5 minutach 3mm, aromat mocno chmielowy jakbym otworzył paczkę granulatu z jakiegoś amerykańca. Po ogrzaniu wyszła coś jakby skarpeta? W smaku bezkomromisowo, chmiel rządzi i radzi. Jest dość wytrawnie. Polskie DIPY rozkłada na łopatki.

biir (616) - Berlin, - MAY 21, 2016
Bottle - clear amber color, creamy head. There is not much to say - an ideal IPA. Intense, fresh aromas of tropical fruits and malt, bitter dry long lasting finish. Alcohol completely hidden. Easy to drink. Great!

Enteogenisk (48) - Bĺlsta, SWEDEN - MAY 19, 2016
(33 cl bottle in wine glass.) This beer LOOKS amazing. It is like liquid amber, with tons of hops. If you like a muscular IPA, this not only gives you a proper slap in the face, but it also gives an elegant experience.

jakubwloszcz (64) - Piastów, POLAND - MAY 18, 2016
Barwa bursztynowa, delikatne zmętnienie. Piana dość obfita, zostawia ładny lacing. Aromat bardzo orzeźwiający, cytrusowy, tropikalny, nie czuć po nim mocy tego piwa. W smaku jest dość wytrawne, cytrusowe, trochę nut karmelowych. Goryczka raczej wysoka, wzmocniona przez delikatne alkoholowe rozgrzewanie.

Butelka 330. Miedziany kolor. Piana biala szczatkowa. Aromat cytrusow owocow tropikalnych sosnowych szyszek. W smaku poczatkowo wytrawne pozniej nawet lekka slodycz jakby cias7tkowa. Cytrusowe o glebokim owocowo sosnowym posmaku. Alkoholu, pomimo ze go duzo, nie czuc.Dobre

stantheman (855) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 15, 2016
Small bottle from Steamworks liquor store in Vancouver. An orange amber colored beer with moderate whitish head and a fruity malted nose. A big bitter citrus hop profile is balanced with an equally large malt profile, but the finish is quite bitter. Nice! 4

Halfling_4132 (67) - Essex, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2016
Appearance: Blush copper in colour, clear with disappearing thin off white foam. Aromas: hops, sweet papaya, and apricots, very refreshing citrus undertones. Palate- slick and oily texture, full bodied Taste- hardcore hops! Definitely packs a punch with a very subtle papaya aftertaste. Overall: highly enjoyable, very impressed for a Tesco buy, Brewdog has set the standard.

lokis333 (299) - Biržai, LITHUANIA - MAY 15, 2016
Clear deep copper color with small quickly dissapearing slight off white foam. Aromas strong of hops, sweet and fruity with hints of grapefruit, passionfruit and light touch of pine, very solid. Palate, full body with heavy thick but smooth texture, leaving hoppy and slight alcoholic finish. Taste, is bitter sweet of american hops, pine resin, strong grapefruit and touch of sweet passionfruit at the end. Overall, nice! Really enjoyable and strong IPA, well masked alcohol content and good strong body to it, something that I have not had in a while. Would recomend!
