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.

UPDATED: MAY 26, 2014 Pours nice golden colour with tightish head. Aroma is strong sweet orange fruity thing, Taste to follow with a really strong dry bitter kick. Very hoppy. and bitter! but it is balanced by a sweet malt full warming alcoholic glow. Bit too bitter for me but if you like your beer dry and extremely bitter you’ll like this.

sir__v (607) - Lille, FRANCE - MAR 7, 2014
Bottle @ La Capsule, Lille - FR. Color: clear amber beer with medium carbonation and medium white foam. Smell: high hoppy nose, with fruity (mango and peach) notes and some caramel taste. Taste: big hoppy explosion with mango and exotic fruits notes. Aftertaste: nice wet bitterness and fresh sensation. Really drinkable this beer can be the step between the Punk IPA and the Hardcore IPA.

This one came after a Deviant Dale’s Oskar Blues so might be down rated after that beauty. Really smells like dacka.........very nice aroma, super floral. Bit of a one trick pony though. Nice bitter length......maybe a music festival or long Sunday picnic tipple?

Ł2.20 Bottle. What you would expect from a good BrewDog IPA. Tropical mango fruits with waftings of skunky weed. Slightly bitter after taste, but a full hop flavour and aroma. Very nice!

Nilz (371) - 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.

zimbo (526) - SCOTLAND - MAR 1, 2014
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.
