3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
[330ml bottle from the Canterbury Bottle Shop] Orange with a moderate creamy head and a light fizz. Light, but fresh aroma. Caramel and ginger at first, but then unusually for Brewdog some dustiness, cardboard and even a vague metallic hint. It’s redeemed to an extent by summer fruit hints (raspberries, peaches), and there’s vanilla in the finish. The mouthfeel is creamy, almost cloying at times, and dry in the finish. It’s still OK, but it’s certainly not one of Brewdog’s better moments, and it’s probably the worst of the IPA is Dead series.

0,33 l bottle, Utobeer, London.
Hazy orange reddish appearance with a fine, medium, creamy off white head. Caramell and flowery-herbal aromas, some rosehip, some grass, peach, dandelion. Medium bodied beer with a herbal hop character, wild fruits and peach, rosehip and the dandelion again. The bitterness is on the herbal not on the resiny side.

Bottle shared by Armando629, thanks much! Poured somewhat hazy, with an amber color and a lacing, tan head. Honey, caramel, apple, hops, with an earthy aftertaste. Medium dense, with high carbonation. A unique brew, but I enjoyed it, good one.

Pours a dark cloudy copper with aroma of apple/pear and some darker malts (not very pronounced tho). Taste is almost sweet wow wonderful flavour.. taste is citrus with apple/pear and i great caramel malt. Overall this is a wonderful beer only let down by its light aroma.

Orange and almonds in the nose. this one is also quite sweet. Oranges, sweet malt, peculiar dryness in the tail. Not really impressive on its own.

IPA Is Dead tasting in bottle at home with Sev. Cheers Craig : ) First cab off the rank pours a deep amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma of strawberry jam tarts and caramel. Juicy blackberry and plum flavours with caramel and well masked alcohol. Mild bitterness. Mild carbonation and a little CO2 prickle. Surprisingly good.

33 cl bottle @ Olutravintola Kahdet Kasvot, Tampere. Rated on 14.04.2011
Tasted in a vertical with other three Dead IPAs, this was worst. Butter-like, a bit bitter. Not sweet, somewhat fresh.
