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.

Bottle from Brewdog, Nottingham. Light copper on the colour, 1 finger head. Pine, Grapefruit, lemon, pine on the nose. Much of the same with touches more of orange on the tastes with a touch of metallic and a blast of bitterness at the end!

JoeMcPhee (8746) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 26, 2014
Tap at Brew Dog Camden Town. Very pale golden pour with a thick white head. Really bright and juicy. Tropical and very fresh. Has a pine and citrus aroma. Clean fermentation and a very straightforward IIPA. Delicious.

Draft. Biscuit malt aroma and tons of tropical grapefruit. Great bitter finish, lots of tropical hops. Hops are present but not overwhelming.

LaViolette (115) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 24, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2014 A very nice IPA from Brewdog. Way better than their Punk one. Beautiful, strong grapefruit nose. Long, very bitter taste. Very well balanced. Loved it!

mario_giri (112) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 23, 2014
Wow, was für ein Aroma: Orangen, Blüten, Citrus. Vollmundige starke Bittere, die gut von der Fruchtigkeit aufgefangen wird. Nichts Saures, mittel CO2. Langer feiner bitterer Abgang mit fruchtnoten. Superfeines IPA!
