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.

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2013 Bottle. Light orange color, citrus & grapefruit on the nose. Mouthfeel is medium body, caramel malt, biscuit, wood, peach, orange,& tropical fruit. The end is bitter and hoppy! Good Ipa, remember me hardcore ipa.

Pours hazy pale golden with some random stuff floating around. Initial aromas of mango and grapefruit that changes to resin with increasing temperature. Hints of garlic (It turns out the bottle is quite old) A strong bitter finish!

This is another cracking beer from brew dog, massive fruit aroma, big punchy mouthfeel, great bitter finish! Remind me of the greenflash West coast ipa, beautiful!

Drank at home with Marijn 5-12-2014. Okay beer, but Brew Dog has better IPAs. Very bitter, not that rich. But still drinkable.

At a tasting, thanks Gunnar, small bubbly head, a little hazy very light orange color, piney aroma with some orange, grapefruit and some fruitiness, flavor of citrus and shrubs with some maltiness in the back,medium mellow bitterness, suprisingly balanced for Brewdog. Excellent.

Transferring some earlier reviews from my blog to RB. Märts 2014, City Beverage Londonis Old Streetil, 33 cl. Valades üliklaar kuldne; korralik hele vaht küll tekib, kuid kaob kiirelt. Aroom on joovastav... vaiguselt tihke ja täidlane, see oleks nagu keedis päikesepaistelisest sügise algusest männimetsas, kuhu pulli pärast segatud ka üliküpset troopilist mangot, ülikibedat greipi, ülimahlast mandariini... oooooooohh. Juues tundub kerge, kleepjas palett ilmneb alles neelatades, mässides siis kogu suuõõne mõrkja ning vaiguse kihi sisse. Mis mõrksusse-kibedusse puutub, siis paraku mingit võimsat kipitavat elamust siin ei ole - sarnaseid humalapomme olen BrewDogilt varemgi saanud, nii et ses suhtes ei erine see kuigivõrd teistest uue laine IPA-dest. Tunnistust ülisuurest IBU numbrist annab vaid kergelt tuim tunne keelel - keel oleks veidi nagu paiste läinud. Tõele au, see on mõnus tunne. Maitses tunda tugev linnaseline alus, mis kohe puuviljasusse upub ja siis mõrksusega kattub. Järelmaik on... pikkkk... ja tuimestavalt pehme, kleepjas-vaigune, kurku jääb kihama mõrksuse torge. Tõesti väga hea asi, kuid turunduslikust aspektist üle haibitud - kopiraiterid panevad kergelt üle võlli.

On tap at Da Ando, Venezia. Hazy golden. Complex hop nose with notes of pine, grapefruit and even passion fruit. Good fruity flavours, dry finish. Superior IPA.

Almost has a non exist ant head. Smelt great out of the bottle. Good carbonation golden colour. Very bitter but not over the top. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
