COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The devastatingly bitter finish will drill straight through your taste buds. If you like hops and bitterness then go ahead. But be warned: this beer has more bitterness than a human palate (or nipple) can detect. For freaks, craft beer junkies and stamp collectors only.

The second placed beer in our 2012 Prototype Challenge is a BrewDog staff favourite, and made a brief guest appearance in our bars last summer.

Nilz (365) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAR 2, 2014
330ml bottle. A clear yellow ale with a fine textured white head. Nice hoppy, citrus aroma. Taste a sharp metallic citrus hoppy flavour and a nice balance bitterness. Resembles Punk IPA in many respects of course, rather nice in consequence.

Good spiky hop nose when 1st opened. Crystalline yellow colour with fairly decent off white head. Decent lacing too. Deep Long huskiesh dense bitterness which end strong & very dry. Lovely taste but needs more core strength and complexity for greatness.

Fantasztikus! Telt, citrusos, grapefruitos, markánsas komlós-végű ipa! Az alkohol nem nagyon lóg ki szerintem, tökéletesen illik ehhez az ízbombához. Az utóbbi időkben kóstolt ipa sörök közül messze a legjobb.
