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.

Clear gold with a sticky head. Aroma of dunk and earth, with some orange marmalade. Taste of bitter orange and lemon rind. Quite nice, though not as good as the punk IPA

SlackerMads (1700) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2013
Bottle. Light hazy orange with a medium sized good lasting and lacing off white head. Citrus, peach and pine dominates the nose with some light bready notes. Aroma is hop driven with lots of citrus notes. Taste is bone dry and pungent with plenty bitterness, long bitter finish. Perhaps a bit simple and aggressive, but luckily I was in the mood for something like this. Fresh and cleansing.

Very nice composition with both smell and taste in balance. Both are small explosions though. Typical ipa with equal taste and smell. Not subtle.

Vaiz (3553) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 13, 2013
Bottle at 2nd tuesday tasting. @ de Molen, hosted by dEnk. Clear golden pour, thin white head. Aroma is hoppy, slightly sweaty, resin, pine and floral. Flavor is bitter sweaty hops, fruity and sharp spicy hops. Huge hops, great brew but a little unsubtle.

Abijen (1525) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - AUG 13, 2013
Pours a nice cloudy beer with a good white head. Smells pretty fruity. Grapefruit. Tastes really nice. Big fruity taste and nice bitter. Thick body and a very dry texture with a good average carbo.

Great broad taste of orange, grapefruit and pine in the hops. Very smooth too. Yes, this is roughly where an IPA should be. I still prefer Dead Pony Club though.

Flaska upphälld i IPA-glas. Grumlig, guldfärgad med kraftigt skum. Arom av ananas, blommor och andra frukter. Riktigt trevlig öl! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
