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 clear with very white head. Aroma is very fresh cut grass, tropical fruit and slight menthol. Taste is incredible, so hoppy, blows most "hoppy" IPAs straight out of the water. Word of warning: Make this your last drink of the night because nothing tastes the same afterwards.Reminds me of Ruination IPA from Stone (US)Great with spicy food.Maybe the best beer I have ever tasted.

Pours a clear blonde beer with decent saturation and a white foamy head. Smells hoppy, fruity, floral and fresh. Really lovely smell. Tastes bitter but also surprisingly fruity. This beer also has a very lovely and balanced palate despite it being this hoppy. I truly love this beer!

Wow... This drilled into my very core - super bitter as expected - low malt - great hoppy citrus flavour - an APA on steroids. Fantastic beer.

Fantasztikus! Telt, citrusos, grapefruitos, markánsas komlós-végű ipa! Az alkohol nem nagyon lóg ki szerintem, tökéletesen illik ehhez az ízbombához. Az utóbbi időkben kóstolt ipa sörök közül messze a legjobb.

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!

Fabulous colour. Bitter twang which lasts. Tropical scents with a initial hit of mango and passion fruit. --- a mobile beer rating

tseo (153) - Athens, GREECE - AUG 6, 2013
Bottle at The Local Pub, Halandri Aroma: Tons of resin and grapefruit, fresh and herbal. Serious aroma that will make sure you ’ll know what follows is a serious beer. Mouthfeel: Oily and big bodied. (Bits of yeast floating all over) Taste: Immensely bitter. Fantastic flavours of unripe olives, lemon peel, pine, greens, peach emerge. Some honeyish sweetness way at the background. Exceptionaly good. Finish: Very very very bitter, long and dry. Overall: Exceptionally good

madsneergaard (75) - Aalborg, DENMARK - AUG 8, 2013
Bottle. A very clear, light orange color with a nice but quickly gone white head. Aroma is a bit sweeter than expected. Much sweeter than bitter. Some malt in the background which does extremely well for a good balance. The taste is simply amazing! If you want to know how a West Coast Style IPA should taste like, you should try this. No flaws, what so ever. It starts out with a nice juicy, tropical, slightly bitter fruitiness, then moves into some malty caramel/toffee thing and then everything is simply destroyed by a huge bitterness in the end. Medium, dry mouthfeel, and the bitterness lingers for the rest of your life. Nothing but a fantastic beer.
