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.

fiulijn (14294) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 25, 2013
Bottle from Birratrovo, Como, batch 082, bb 12-04-14, 7.2% ABV
Hazy blond color with small head. The aroma is hop awesomeness, with pungent fruits: passion fruit, citrus; and light manure. Toffee flavor, very good, with dry and smooth mouthfeel; the hops express all their aromatic components, fruits and resins; bitter oranges, light grapefruit, light passion fruit; the final is lean and bold.
A wonderful clean example.

Brewdog Camden. Hazy amber - gold beer. Tidy cream white head. Palate is smooth, slight soft and with good fine carbonation. Nice creamy malt base. Hops are a lovely mix of orange marmalade, fresh orange, mango and peach and a good twist of very mild hop skunk. All flavours really well balanced. Traces of pine and grass and a little fresh hop sting. Finishes smooth with good hop bitterness. I think this is 5th time in 2012 I’ve given a Brewdog IPA 4.0 or above. Good stuff!

Bottle - Sweetish tangerine and orange and then a little bitterish marmalade and grapefruit and a trace of bitter lemon. Mild skunk. Good stuff.
