Peachy aroma. Very little foam top. Probably one of the bitterest beer I’ve tried. Not for everybody. But definitely a must try for bitter beers.

I enjoyed the bitterness but I honestly do not think this is 100 IBU's. I've had more hop-forward craft with more intense bitterness with less IBU's. It was also lacking on the aroma front. It was there but not as intense as I would've liked.

Cloudy yellow appearance with small white head. Aroma of hops, melon and pineapple. Refreshing taste, bitter in character but smooth and easy to drink. Very tasty and a bold IPA.

Non sono un cultore della birra iper amara, eppure questa, pur essendolo, mi ha coinvolto così tanto da farmene innamorare. Ha sentori fruttati interessanti, un sublime apparato olfattivo e gustativo di rilevante aspirazione, vegetale, luppolata, giustamente schiumata e, soprattutto, che persistenza! Al palato ed alla mente, non solo persiste ma, e qui viene il bello, persevera!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared with McTapps. Fresh hops all the way with a touch of vanilla. Pepper in the back with limejuice and maybe coriander. Sharp, hard-hitting bitter finish. Not bad.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Rudat in Dortmund. The beer pours out in a light hazy light amber colour with steady low head and medium body. Aroma of fresh hops and spruce with some citrus hints. Taste of fresh hops, light barley, spruce, oak, pine, citrus fruits, grapefruit, thyme, coriander and mild pink pepper. Very quaffable and enjoyable.

Bottle. Resin and pine on the nose. Pours a clear yellow orange with quite a nice head that recedes somewhat, good lacing. Taste is upfront, full-on: not a lot of subtlety here, but hey! That’s a big, satisfying IPA for you. Would’ve thought it was West Coast had it not been Brewdog. The palate is full and fulfilling. Big, bitter grapefruit finish. Good stuff.

Hazy golden yellow with a tiny white head/ring clinging to the glass.
