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.

A clear golden beer, small white head. Smell is familiar, floral, exotic fruits. Taste is bitter, grapefruit and I taste something sweet as well, hint of caramel. Taste is not very lasting. Not as good as other Brewdogs imo.

(Bottle). Scent of sweet tropical fruits, citrus and pine. Strong taste of hops with flavors of tropical fruits, grapefruit and some alcohol. The hops makes the taste rather hard and dry, with plenty flavor of grapefruit. Bitter finish.

beer-yum (470) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 3, 2014
Subdued aroma and a laid back initial flavour give way to a smooth sustained finish. Another winner from the folks at BrewDog.

8oz pour at brew dog Camden. Good aroma sweet. Citrus. Grapefruit orange apricot. Lightly hazed brownish Orange color. Ok head and lace. Bitter sweet flavor. Medium body. Oily creamy mouthfeel. Bitter dry finish. Good. Not unlike a lot of other big ipa’s. Tasting good after day at London zoo.

jonas (5637) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JUN 30, 2014
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 (20) - 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 (4167) - 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 (632) - 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.
