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. Golden clouds, low white head. Lychee aroma. Very bitter hops sehwaying into aromatics - green orange peel, apples, citrus, tropicals. A bit like eating wasabi: Big hit initially which then gives way to flavor. The malt side drowns in the hops - medium mellow body. Fruity hop finish. Quite pleasant drink despite the extreme onset.

Dwarf (19) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 29, 2014
Bottle 0,33L from "Pezinok pije pivo beer festival" . So gentle fruity and hoppy aroma. Clear colour of straw. Taste of full body hoppy IPA. First kick of light hoppy taste with excellente balanced bitter end. 7,2% of alcohol but the taste is so light nice hide in this craft beer. Its the really great IPA!

Setroc (7) - SCOTLAND - JUN 25, 2014 does not count
Pours golden with a nice white head. Lovely aroma packed with hops producing strong tropical fruit notes with a hint of caramel malt underneath. Flavours reinforce the tropical fruit in the aroma, little bit thinner than expected but not criminally so, flavours give way quickly to a long pleasant bitter finish.

Finn (4134) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 24, 2014
Flaske 0,33l fra Vinmonopolet Tromsø Langnes. Gyldenbrun. Middels høyt luftig skum som etterlater litt lacing. Kraftig ferskenaroma. Smaken likedan og den blir veldig tørr & bitter etter hvert. Minner om grapefrukt.

Bontus (627) - Flanders, BELGIUM - JUN 23, 2014
Bottle, 33cl, Geers. Pours golden yellow, small white head, bubbly. Clean hopnose, EU hop. Faint passionfruit aroma. Clean bitter taste, not harsh, not unpleasant, not even worth the name & description imo. Or maybe my palate got used to the continuous hop hammering. Low carbonation, clean fresh palate.

Dzhigga (118) - Kirov, RUSSIA - JUN 23, 2014
Bottle. Hazy amber-orange color with small fast-disappearing head. Aroma is fantastic: grapefruit, mango, citrus with notes of spice. Taste is heavy bitter with long-lasting btter aftertaste with fruits at the backstage. Teriffic IPA! Must try beer.

Bottle from Bierzwerg!
Pours strong golden yellow with creamy white head. Smell has lots of tropical fruit, citrus, grapefruit and spicy notes. Starts with citrussy hops, tropical fruits and some orange. Finish is fruity-hoppy and bitter, with herbal and spicy notes. Really a good IPA!!

Flesje bij de mitra, 058. gouden helder met minimale witte kraag, heerlijk fris hoppig aroma van citrus, grapefruit, den, hooi. smaken zijn redelijk fruitig, mango, grapefruit, citrus, verder de zéér stevige hopsmaken, den en nat gras. De bitterheid is redelijk hoog maar ondanks dat ik hoog bittere bieren niet echt lekker vind, valt deze best mee. medium body, glad en zacht van textuur, lage co2, en zoal te verwachten een lange bittere en iets droge afdronk. stevig hop bommetje dit
