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.

Pours a nice cloudy beer with a good white head. Smells pretty fruity. Grapefruit. Tastes really nice. Big fruity taste and nice bitter. Thick body and a very dry texture with a good average carbo.

mile (2857) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle. Light golden, small to average and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, some caramel and tropical fruitiness, lots of piney - some grapefruit hoppyness. Body is medium to full, malty and dryish flavor, some caramel and light tropical fruitiness, piney hoppyness. Finish is average to long, malty and dryish, faint caramel and light tropical fruitiness, lots of piney - light grapefruit hoppyness. Really nice and well hopped dryish IPA with long finish - not too much caramel.

jonnyguns (878) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle from mane liquor. Pours a very clear light orange with a sticky white head. Nose shows grapefruit, citrus and pine. A very approachable IPA. Taste is mainly grapefruit and pine notes, fair whack of bitterness there too. Solid beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rauchbier (3593) - 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

Drinked @ Simplonpass 2000m. Amber color with big creamy head. Nice maris otter malt aroma and big citrus, resin and floral aroma. At taste is medium bodied with malt caramel flavour and a light but pleasant bitterness in the end.

jesperhammer (2815) - 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.

eelco (27) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 4, 2014
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 (1234) - 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 (439) - 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.
