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.

imdownthepub (10001) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2014
Keg at The Brewdog Bar, Shoreditch, London on the Hicksters Bimble. Hazy amber with white head. Heavily hopped and bittered beer, unripe kiwi fruit, green lemons, mouth drying and yet there is a juiciness that shows through now and then. A bit over the top for me and I like my bitters but still decent.

Grzesiek79 (3139) - Radom, POLAND - APR 23, 2014
Piwo wyraznie chmielowe, prawie jak double IPA. Slodow mnostwo wyczuwalem. Owoce cytrusowe kwaskowosc takze. Zapach intensywny. Kolor jasny, przejzysty, prawie zloty. Piana srednia, a raczej niewielka. Piwo tresciwe i mimo wygladu lagera jest tresciwe i nawet lekko ciezkawe.

Bottle (330 ml) @ À la Bière comme à la Bière (Paris). Slightly hazy golden with a medium diminishing off-white head and some lacing. Aroma is of resinous hops, light malt, some citrus and perfume notes. Taste is also piney with a good malt backbone, perfume notes, citrus, fruity notes and light bitter finish. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Slightly oily mouthfeel. Dry finish. Good West Coast IPA. Drinkable and refreshing. Good balance between perfume, pine and citrus. Tasty.

McWorta (555) - LUXEMBOURG - APR 20, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 18, 2014 Deep golden nearly orange in colour with a small frothy white head. A beautfil bouquet of citrus, orange, grapefruit and hints of black currant develops. The taste develops further mango/maracuja and hints of litchi notes. A light livelyness leads to a rather slick dry medium-full bodied beer. A light fruity sweet touch which fades quickly into a bitterness which moves on and on leaving a long dry finish. Pretty intense but still well balanced!

wihlan (227) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 20, 2014
Flaska hos föräldrarna. Rätt mörk för för att vara en pale Ale. Fruktig doft och skumkronan drar lite åt det gröna hållet. Härlig beska, en bra ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DuffMan (6534) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 16, 2014
Bottle, shared during our epic night at MicroBar in Reykjavik, with Arnie and Stein. Golden with orange hue, lovely aromatic hop profile, filled with tropical fruits and a touch of conifer. Long bitter finish. After recently having had a few let-downs from Brewdog in the IPA department (in particular, the entire "IPA Is Dead" series), this is a return to greatness. Delicious.
