4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
330ml bottle served in a pint glass.
A: Pours a slightly hazy yellow colour forming a big, bubbled and creamy light yellow head. Medium retention and lots of chunky and soapy lacings left in the glass
S: Very fruity and flowery. Strong notes of pine. Definitely an American IPA. Very fruity. Tropical fruits: Oranges, grapefruit and pineapple. Pale sweet grains and grassy hops
T: Slightly sweet upfront. Strong notes of sweet pale malts, crystal malts, caramel malts. Very fruity! Again, strong notes of tropical fruits: Oranges, grapefruit and pineapple. Very piny too. In overall, a slightly sweet taste and a huge hops bitterness
M: Medium molasses body. Medium carbonation. Bittersweet aftertaste. Strong notes of pine
O: Great drinkability. Just another Brewdog masterpiece

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep golden clear body, modest off white head, some rimmy lacings.
Aroma; pine forest, resiny malts, citrus, lemon, wildberries.
Taste; resin, pine, juicy resiny malts, citrus peel, grapefruit peel, leather notes, ash juice notes.
Solid on palate, average carbonation, feels as solid IPA.
Roasted malts, distinct bitter and some ash in finish. Lingering resin.

Peachy aroma. Very little foam top. Probably one of the bitterest beer I’ve tried. Not for everybody. But definitely a must try for bitter beers.

I enjoyed the bitterness but I honestly do not think this is 100 IBU's. I've had more hop-forward craft with more intense bitterness with less IBU's. It was also lacking on the aroma front. It was there but not as intense as I would've liked.

Cloudy yellow appearance with small white head. Aroma of hops, melon and pineapple. Refreshing taste, bitter in character but smooth and easy to drink. Very tasty and a bold IPA.

Non sono un cultore della birra iper amara, eppure questa, pur essendolo, mi ha coinvolto così tanto da farmene innamorare. Ha sentori fruttati interessanti, un sublime apparato olfattivo e gustativo di rilevante aspirazione, vegetale, luppolata, giustamente schiumata e, soprattutto, che persistenza! Al palato ed alla mente, non solo persiste ma, e qui viene il bello, persevera!

Bottle shared with McTapps. Fresh hops all the way with a touch of vanilla. Pepper in the back with limejuice and maybe coriander. Sharp, hard-hitting bitter finish. Not bad.

Bottle from Rudat in Dortmund. The beer pours out in a light hazy light amber colour with steady low head and medium body. Aroma of fresh hops and spruce with some citrus hints. Taste of fresh hops, light barley, spruce, oak, pine, citrus fruits, grapefruit, thyme, coriander and mild pink pepper. Very quaffable and enjoyable.
