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.

On tap @ brewdog Birmingham. Probably my favourite brewdog beer, possibly! Tropical power hits the ode straight away, big big bitter hit on he gob followed by some really nice fruits and a bit of toasted sugar too. This is one tasty beer. Went down well with my toasted cheese sarnie, which by the way was also awesome. Great sarnie, great beer, what’s not to like!! Good times.

rauchbier (3587) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2014
Bottle, from Tesco, Kirkwall. Faintly hazy gold, thin short lived white head and gentle condition. Big citrus and fruity nose with hints of grapefruit and pineapple, lots of hop resin and a little malty sweetness. In the mouth it is restrained hop bitterness with more fruitiness, citrus and a little pine resin, finish is long and bitter but never excessively so

jesperhammer (2814) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 7, 2014
04-JUL-2014, draft @Brewdog, Camden Town, London. Almost clear golden with low White head. Aroma is grape fruit and pine. Taste is richer but still almost only grape fruit and pine. A Little sweet note reveas the malt but really a hop-driven beer.

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.

BeerSkull (1195) - SWEDEN - JUL 4, 2014
(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 (434) - 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 (5591) - 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 (5) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 29, 2014 does not count
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!
