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.

allmyvinyl (3658) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 15, 2013
Pours a nice light amber, slight haze. Noticed some sediment, which is unusual for Brewdog beers. Lots of classic American C hop flavours - citrus, grapefruit, touch of peaches. Pretty bitter, but it’s no Mikkeller 1000IBU! Medium body, but perhaps made bigger by all the hops? Good, but not great. Prefer I Hardcore U.

maekchu (2200) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUN 9, 2013
Bottle from Asahiya. Big fat pureed, simmered and pureed and mixed with peaches. Hazy dark straw, like apple jam. Hop attack right away / mid mellows and lets the fruitiness emerge / finish keeps the hops, and they do linger. Pretty good. maltier than the west coast style, which, according to the labels, this one emulates.

RichardW (1529) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2013
Bottle Rehills Newcastle. Huge peach mango and passion fruit aroma that my wife could smell from about 8 foot away. Not quire the same in the flavour department; but the mango really comes through after a few sips. Really impressed with this, a full on IPA with warmth in the chest & long lingering orange notes. Excellent-my favourite Brewdog beer so far I think.
