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.

Brewed in Scotland !!! Pours an orangish amber color with a ultra thin off white head. Aroma of citrus, caramel, pine and malts. Taste of wood, malts, intense pine cones and bitter hops.This is kind of hardcore...lol.

Dohny (348) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 30, 2016
Bottle. Clear light copper to orange color with off white small firm head. Intense sweet citrusy aroma. Full body, oily texture, low carbonation. Balance towards sweetness. Strong bitterness appears only in finish and lingers long in aftertaste. Alcohol is well hidden. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gaelic (121) - Rotterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 22, 2016
Golden strong IPA. Lots of hops, extreme bitter but very drinkable. TOuches of caramel and very light sweetness gives it a good balance. Very long lasting taste in mouth

caribou43 (368) - SWITZERLAND - APR 19, 2016
I bought this bottle at amstein in St-Légier. It is a strong IPA. The body is copper-orange and troubled. The taste is powerful, malt, sweetness, some caramel and hop. The sensation is staying a long time in the tongue, good.

SkillsFactory (450) - ITALY - APR 17, 2016
Batch 588, aperta il 17 aprile 2016. Ambrata limpida con riflessi dorati, schiuma bianca di media persistenza. Aroma floreale e biscottato classico da Centennial, resinosa, ananas, lime, durian, erbaceo secco e pepe. Al palato caramellata, biscotto, floreale, ananas e durian, finale leggermente legnoso, erbaceo secco e resinoso misto ad amaro agrumato che ricorda il pompelmo. Corpo medio-leggero, ben carbonata.

Zilb (76) - Fontenay Sous Bois, FRANCE - APR 16, 2016
Bue en bouteille à John Viande. Bière rousse avec beau col de mousse. Peu de bulles. Arômes très puissants d’agrumes et plus particulièrement orange et pamplemousse, mais aussi du houblon frais style triskel. Amertume très franche et toujours plein d’agrumes et de saveurs en bouche. On ne sent presque pas les 9,2%. Longeur en bouche exceptionnelle. Enorme ! Un coup de coeur ! Je m’en suis même repris une 2ème dans la foulée.

HPDalen (104) - - APR 15, 2016
Hoppy aroma with grapefruit and citrus. Also hints of malt. Pours deep golden with small, white head. Well balanced taste, grapefruit and pine, quite abrupt. Medium body, slick and average carbonation. Alcohol comes through. Solid beer.

PietS (121) - Bergen op Zoom, NETHERLANDS - APR 13, 2016
It’s very sweet and spicy, the bitterness doesn’t dominate there beer. Well balanced, quite heavy beer. I see why people like it, but I don’t think it’s that spectacular.

WeSBros (46) - POLAND - APR 12, 2016
UPDATED: APR 13, 2016 Brewdog stworzyl rzeznika, który jenców nie bierze. Aromat chmielu, lekko alkoholowy. Barwa bursztynowa, klarowne, piana biala, drobna, srednio obfita. Goryczka jest glownym aktorem tego piwa. Przejmuje inicjatywe nie oddaje jej azdo konca - przyjemna, potezna, szlachetna po uderzeniu od razu znika. Alkohol mistrzowsko ukryty. Piwo degustacyjne - nie dla wszystkich.
