COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
keg and bottle, 2013 release
Using the same base 6.7% beer, a baby version of our Hardcore, we slam a mouth puckering 75 IBUs on top of a base of Marris Otter, Crystal Malt and Caramalt before throwing dizzying amounts of hops at these beers.
The Pacific North West of America is home to the brand speanking new El Dorado Hop. America is not just about cheer-leaders, a silly version of football, elastic top jeans and cheeseburgers. They grow remarkable hops and El Dorado is a killer example of this, embodying all that is good about American hops and then some. A new hop on the block, it may even seduce you into thinking the American Dream is not just a catch phrase to sell movies and elect Presidents. Fearfully hard to resist, this beer is loaded with tropical fruits, pear, watermelon, candy floss and stone fruit. Devilishly moreish.

Bottle from Bierzwerg!
Pours strong amber colored with a flat head. Smells very floral and herbal, slight fruity. Starts with herbal hops, very floral, with a hint of honey. Middle part has lots of herbs and floral hops. Finish is also deliciously herbal and floral, with some slight fruity hops.

Butelka 0.3L. Jasnobursztynowe, mętne z średnią, zbitą, jasnokremową pianą. Aromat chmielowo-słodowy. Mniej intensywne aromaty chmielowe niż w waimei. Również dość słodkie, przypominające dojrzałe jasne tropikalne owoce, głównie melon. W smaku też podobne do poprzedniego (Waimea) tylko z goryczką bardziej owocową, delikatniejszą. Nie czuć tu 75 IBU z penością. Stawiałbym bardziej w okolice 45 IBU. Bardzo podobne do Waimea tylko trochę mniej chmielowe i odrobinę mniej słodki aromat. Wysycenie niskie, ciało średnie, faktura metaliczna.

Botella de 33 cl en el Lúpulo en agosto de 2013. Lote 070 hasta 27-03-2014. Esta ya no es tan herbácea,,, con algunas notas mas intensas afrutadas y algo dulces, hasta el momento la mejor de las que he probado ( waimea, y dana)

Hops aroma with hints of pine and berries, so smooth with a slight resin mouth. I loved it.

Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Attaque sur le houblon fortement dosé, un peu trop à mon goût. Peu d’autres saveurs reconnaissables...

freretoc (441) - Besançon, FRANCE - APR 3, 2014
Bu en bouteille de 33cl, une couleur dorée ambrée et pas de mousse, une attaque violente sur le houblon et son amertume avec peu d’arôme juste intéressante...

ComradeK (922) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - MAR 27, 2014
330ml bottle. Pours a hazy golden amber, with a moderate off-white head, which lasts fairly well and leaves decent lacing. Watermelon, pear and mild kiwifruit and resin hops mix with caramel malt to create an alluring aroma. Peach and watermelon hops up front maintain their presence into a caramel malt mid-palate. Grapefruit hops come in at the finish, and there is a kiwifruit hops aftertaste. Another lovely single hop IPA; BrewDog seem to have done very well selecting slightly unusual hops for the 2013 IPA is Dead series.

Satyroneto (59) - - MAR 10, 2014
Cor laranja turva; vai ficando cristalina com o avançar da degustação; espuma bege, quase branca de baixas formação e persistência; pouco lacing; Aroma cítrico de frutas amarelas (laranja, melão, tangerina e um pouco de toranja) Sabor de caramelo um pouco queimado que evolui para frutas amarelas e amargor bem equilibrado; Retrogosto levemente adstringente. Corpo leve, boa drinkability. Nao curti muito... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
