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.

mmahut (955) - CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 23, 2013
Light pale color with low head. Aroma is like a fruit basket, some pineapple and mango. Mostly tropical fruits and sweet citrus notes. Taste has long lasting bitterness. The sweetness support could be little bit higher for my taste. Body is dry with good carbonation. Interesting brew if you like the tropical hop notes like I do.

Naeri (23) - SWEDEN - OCT 18, 2013
Brewdog är tillbaks i gammal form! Efter några "sådär-öl" i nya bryggeriet har man hittat sin gamla form. Stöddigt med massiv citrusdominerad doft, kanske lite kattpiss också. Helt torr, citrusigt fruktig med en lååång efterbeska. Älskar det!

Kita (1049) - Koper, SLOVENIA - OCT 17, 2013
Bottled, 0.33l. Cloudy deep golden color with medium creamy off-white head, nice lacing and many floating body particles. Aroma of light caramel malt, hirsh pine and resin hops and tropical fruits like lychee, pineapple and mango. Taste starts with light sweet maltiness, followed by fruity sourness, mainly citric, with warm mouthfeel, while finished with astringent and long lasting bitterness. Full body, thick texture abd average carbonation in palate. Very refreshing and drinkable when cold, but when a bit warmer, bitterness hammers you down...

Christian (11058) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 16, 2013
Hazy golden with a lasting white head. The aroma is an explosion of juicy, fruity hops, with peach, tangerine, kiwi and pineapple. Dry and hoppy flavour with lots of fruit, a bit of kerosene, and a very bitter finish with signs of the raw bitterness from non-ideal (high alpha?) bittering hops

sputnikus (96) - Brno, CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 16, 2013
Bottle. Pours nice golden liquid with fair white head. Aroma is very strong and rich, composed of pines, tropical fruit and citruses (oranges, grapefruits, tangerines). Taste zesty bitter with some sweet tones. Medium body with thin texture, average carbonation. Long lasting bitter finish. Very drinkable American style IPA, full of hoppy aromas and flavours.
