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.

Clear yellow / light orange, with some white head. Aroma is loaded with hops, really pleasant! Taste is some malt sweetness and medium bitterness. Finishes rather dry.

DuffMan (6156) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 16, 2014
Bottle, shared during our epic night at MicroBar in Reykjavik, with Arnie and Stein. Golden with orange hue, lovely aromatic hop profile, filled with tropical fruits and a touch of conifer. Long bitter finish. After recently having had a few let-downs from Brewdog in the IPA department (in particular, the entire "IPA Is Dead" series), this is a return to greatness. Delicious.

Scottishchris (116) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 6, 2014
Bottle from Cornelius. Pours crystal clear golden, small head. Big resinous sticky nose, grapefruit. Body is lighter than I remember from last taste, loads of bitterness. As another eater has suggested, sits somewhere between punk and hardcore. Good.

TET (1434) - FINLAND - APR 1, 2014
A orange yellow beer with a quite weak and blond head. The aroma is nice and tropical fruity, sweet mangos, grapefruits, some pine needles, the fruits are dominating, also some caramell malts. Tastefull aroma. Taste is strognly bitter but also frutifull and smooth, mangos, pine needles and resin. The end is long, strongly bitter with resin. Medium bodied, smooth at first then the bitterness starts to attack. Even as Brewdog beer the bitterness is huge, still great balance and smoothness.

Bottle from The Cellar, Chester - poured into a teku glass. Pours a clear golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma is citrussy hops and white wine. Taste is packed with hops to the nines and super citrussy, one of the best IPAs I’ve ever had!
