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.

wvhoran (191) - Rotterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 26, 2014
Bottle. Hazy blonde with a small white head. Aroma is dense hoppy, sweet toffee, marmalade, oranges, passionfruit, pine. Flavour is sweet toffee, sweet orange, passionfruit, mango. Sticky-sweet. Bitter and very dry but not as "devastatingly" bitter as the punks make it out to be. Good stuff.

loco_gallego (40) - SWITZERLAND - AUG 26, 2014
Blonde légèrement orangée, belle mousse blanche disparaissant assez vite. Arôme sur-puissant, résineux et fruité plutôt citrique et légèrement malté. Amertume puissante, franche et très persistante. Le citrus est le seul qu’on puisse sentir au milieu de cette amertume. Fin de bouche légèrement sèche, mais surtout l’amertume qui dure, dure, dure....

Given to me as take away from crags tasting by crew member unnecessarily, thank you! Enjoyed in hotel room while getting ready for dinner. Pours golden with white head. Nose is funky citrus. Tastes of piney, lemons, touch herbal, and earthy. Funky palate with aggressive hops. Tasty

0,5 pullo@ One pint pub. Keltainen lähes täysin kirkas. Tuoksussa vahvasti humalaa, mäntyä ja vähän sitrusta. Vahva humalan maku ja jälkikatkeruus. Mäntyä myös maussa.

guzgorog (247) - FRANCE - AUG 16, 2014
Blonde orangée, belle mousse blanche, retombant assez vite en laissant une belle dentelle. Nez très fruité de citron, litchi, fruits de la passion, noix de coco. Amertume brutale, mais ne masquant pas les saveurs de citron, pin, pamplemousse, fruits de la passion. Assez bon équilibre quoique penchant un peu trop vers l’amertume. Houblonnage de malade. Amertume très très persistante.

Tap at brewdog, Clapham. Pours a slightly orange gold with a white head. Lemony, grassy, light veg aroma. Medium body, medium carbonation. Light caramel, tangerine, marmalade, lemon, pine, white toast... Nice balance, bitter dry and tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
