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.

Beertopia 2014 #1. Clear deep golden. Very fresh hoppy flavor. Like punk but maltier. Very solid fresh hoppy ipa.

Amazing juicy hops in the aroma, you can almost smell the sticky fragrant cones from the pour. A little lighter colored than most IPA’s, cant get over the aroma from this, absolutely mouth watering. Taste doesn’t live up to it I’m afraid, definitely a nice IPA, but there’s a little burnt resin flavor that’s slightly off-putting. Carbonation is a little high. Overall a solid IPA, but the aroma writes checks the taste cant cash.

Braastad (323) - FINLAND - MAR 14, 2014
Quite pale IPA, this one. Aroma has grapefruit, pine, and tropical fruits. Flavor is quite thin and a bit metallic.

Smalle (65) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAR 14, 2014
Bottle from Willems in Grobbendonk. Intensely hoppy nose. Taste: bitter grapefruit, not much else in terms of fruits. Quite bitter, but not over the top.

Köpte denna i ett 4-pack på Systembolaget. 7.4%. Dofter åt Citra-hållet, man kan skölja en liten liten beska i bakgrunden. Den är bra, helt klart, Lite synd bara att den både luktar o smakar som 8/10 Brewdogs-bira. Det är nåt som kommer åter och åter igen.

LomYst (393) - Rotterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 12, 2014
Citrus and pineapples... bitter taste with balanced sweetness... soft carbs and a long bitter hoppy finish... good strong ipa that lacks its own character

Belle couleur jaune dorée; arômes (assez légers) et goût houblonnés; finale très amère; une bonne bière

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?! One to be savoured.
