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.

Douberd (2298) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUL 16, 2014
On tap at the Hoppy Pub, Thessaloniki, Greece. Pours an orange golden beer, slighty hazy, with a small off-white head, with okay retention, leaving almost non existent lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, grapefruit, pine, very appealing. Great taste, lots of pine, hops, a bit of resin, grapefruit too, very bitter with the bitterness having a really long duration. Medium body, good carbonation, good dryness on the palate. Great beer, lots of hops and bitterness, highly drinkable, if I didn’t have to get up early I’d have stayed for another.
