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.

Baalzevuv (46) - - JAN 29, 2015
Kolor głęboko pomarańczowy, pływają gluty, piana obfita, średnio pęcherzykowa, średnio trwała. Aromaty pomarańczy, miodu, w zasadzie więcej się nie dzieje. W smaku jest praktycznie sama goryczka, cytrusowego balansu brak. Sama goryczka też nie smakuje jak deklarowana stówka. W odczuciu oleiste, treściwe, goryczka delikatnie zalega.

KeefOz (994) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JAN 18, 2015
BB 08/07/15. Poured a translucent golden amber with a 5mm white foamy head that retained poorly and laced poorly. Carbonation high with medium sized bubbles. Lots of small yeasty particles settled out. Aroma of citrus (lime, grapefruit), tropical fruits and pine. Taste similar with intense bitterness that bites on the palate. Light to medium body. Smooth but then with a lingering distinct big hoppy bitterness on the finish. A good IPA.
