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.

Iznogud (826) - CROATIA - NOV 2, 2014
On tap at Brewdog Glasgow and bottled in Zagreb. Pours orange golden with foamy white head. Fruit, citrus, hoppy aroma. Pine, fruits, very hoppy with dry bitter finish. Great one.

Marcius (224) - Geneva, SWITZERLAND - OCT 31, 2014
Appearance with golden color, cloudy a bit cloudy and small head. Aroma is extremely hoppy (herbs, green mango and passion fruit) On the palate, the bitterness of hops is also very strong. It is not as balanced, but it’s worth trying. The green label makes sense.

Hopmaestro (194) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 29, 2014
Smells of hops dominate and the taste of grapefruits, pineapples, peaches and pine transforms into a lovely bitter ending that lasts for quite a while. If you are a true #hophead , you must have at least one of these in your life.

rikstar (911) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 25, 2014
0,33l flesuitgeschonken goudgeel helder met een witte kraag. Geur is tropisch fruit, ananas en grapefruit. Ook in de smaak grapefruit en het bitter van de binnenkant van een ananas. Afdronk met salmiak en laurier. Echt een heel lekkere IPA

eduardovl (938) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2014 330ml bottle served in a pint glass. A: Pours a slightly hazy yellow colour forming a big, bubbled and creamy light yellow head. Medium retention and lots of chunky and soapy lacings left in the glass S: Very fruity and flowery. Strong notes of pine. Definitely an American IPA. Very fruity. Tropical fruits: Oranges, grapefruit and pineapple. Pale sweet grains and grassy hops T: Slightly sweet upfront. Strong notes of sweet pale malts, crystal malts, caramel malts. Very fruity! Again, strong notes of tropical fruits: Oranges, grapefruit and pineapple. Very piny too. In overall, a slightly sweet taste and a huge hops bitterness M: Medium molasses body. Medium carbonation. Bittersweet aftertaste. Strong notes of pine O: Great drinkability. Just another Brewdog masterpiece [ BA Review @ 7/10/2014 ]
