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.

0,33 bottle purchased in Serbia and consumed in Kosovo, thank you Boban. It pours cloudy orange with a medium white head. Nose: pine resin, tangerine, marihuana. Mouth: bitter blast! Amber malts in the background, if you are lucky enough to get some spare space on the palate after that bitterness has destroyed it. Diesel! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

very citrus, fresh and pleasant aroma golden color with semilong head with medium bubbles, hazy yes. it’s bitter. very bitter i can say. but bitterness is also very pleasant, under it i can taste something sweeter, something like caramel. it feels a bit oily, quite full (probably this "trash" swimming inside makes it a bit "heavier") overall: i really like it! it was quite expensive as for 0.33l bottle, but it’s a beer every beergeek should drink, i think. on the other hand i was a bit disappointed after reading and hearing about it’s extreme bitterness - after all it was really pleasant, high, but not that extreme

Aroma is citrus and spicy. Taste is a wonderful mix of citrus and earthy hops, grapefruit and spruce pine. Palate feel is a bit oily which is fitting perfectly. A wonderful ipa!

Bottle from Rehills of Jesmond. Pours amber with a thin white head. Lots of bitter tropical fruit flavour and aroma. Grapefruit and pineapple along with a little spice. Nice oily feel in the mouth. Really good beer.

Cervesa molt semblant en aroma a la Punk IPA, en gust si que hi ha una mica de diferència ja que és una mica més maltosa. Cerveza muy parecida en aroma a la Punk IPA, en sabor si que hay una pequeña diferencia ya que es un poco mas maltosa.
