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.

Fles gedeeld met lachneger. Oranje goud helder bier met klein schuimkraagje. Aroma van mango, ananas, fruitig. Smaak is in het begin wat zoet en mooie bittere afdronk. Met droog licht trekkend mondgevoel.

Mooi helder oranjegoud kleurig bier. Schuimkraag nihil is snel verdwenen. Smaak citrus en ananas, licht trekkend (droog)op het einde. Gedeeld met Bryan.

Tomy63 (176) - Clermont-Ferrand, FRANCE - MAR 22, 2014
au fût , belle couleur dorée, nez très expressif, houblonné, exotique, sur la résine, le pamplemousse, les fruits de la passion. Bouche assez légère pour 7,4%, pas très sucrée ni caramélisée, mais bien fruitée, sèche, exotique encore, de la pêche, de la mangue, du pamplemousse, de l’ananas, avec une belle texture un peu épaisse. Très belle longueur avec une grosse amertume. A mi-chemin entre la Punk et la Hardcore.

ImperialStefan (21) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAR 22, 2014
Aroma: Pine, Citrus, passionfruit. Appearance: Hazy pale golden. Taste. Medium high bitterness. This one is pretty light on the malt for its abv. The decent ammount of carbonation also helps it with being "easy" to drink. Refreshing, would go well with some barbeque on a hot day.

TEJA (1261) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 18, 2014
Bottle from Systembolaget, Sweden. Auful aroma with a sulphur stench that over powers the big hop aroma. Semi lasting White head. Opaque light golden color. Big fresh hop taste and equally big bitterness with a pale malt body without any sweet clinging caramell malts.

berkshirejohn (4381) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2014
33cl bottle from a Tesco’s in Edinburgh. Amber with a ring of white head; fresh, piney, birchy aroma; dry, with a somewhat acrid hoppy taste; thean a crisp dry finish with a touch of grapefruit. A pretty good west coast style IPA.

HKdIPA (201) - HONG KONG - MAR 14, 2014
Beertopia 2014 #1. Clear deep golden. Very fresh hoppy flavor. Like punk but maltier. Very solid fresh hoppy ipa.

beerfest5 (1130) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAR 14, 2014
Amazing juicy hops in the aroma, you can almost smell the sticky fragrant cones from the pour. A little lighter colored than most IPA’s, cant get over the aroma from this, absolutely mouth watering. Taste doesn’t live up to it I’m afraid, definitely a nice IPA, but there’s a little burnt resin flavor that’s slightly off-putting. Carbonation is a little high. Overall a solid IPA, but the aroma writes checks the taste cant cash.

Braastad (370) - FINLAND - MAR 14, 2014
Quite pale IPA, this one. Aroma has grapefruit, pine, and tropical fruits. Flavor is quite thin and a bit metallic.
