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.

tiong (3939) - Espoo, - FEB 1, 2013
Draught @ Kaisla, Helsinki

Pours clear copper colored with a tiny head. Aroma of floral hops, grass, caramely malts and sweet toffee. Taste is sweet and malty with a lot of caramely toffee, floral hops, grass and hints of fruits. Finish has a lot of floral hops, bitterness, grassy notes and sticky malty caramel. Okay, quite sweet and malty IPA.

jercraigs (8013) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 20, 2014
2014-11-20. Lightly hazy yellow orange body, moderate frothy white head. 3+ Pleasantly hoppy aroma, interesting fruity melange includes notes of tropical fruit, sweet lemon, citrus. Flavour is similar. Moderate bitterness throughout, fruity hop character has similar melange of tropical fruit, light citrus and others than I can’t quite define. Lingering bitterness in the finish is amplified by moderate alcohol. Average bodied palate with good carbonation. 3+ Good, quite tasty and quaffable. Bottle from Appelation Wine, Edinburgh.

MayumiH (152) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2014
Bottle from Bottledog. Strong hop aroma already. Earthy and hoppy with a hint of citrus. Long bitter finish. " You be my calm I’ll be your pneumatic drill.." Lovely :p

nogva (13) - NORWAY - NOV 16, 2014
Pours copper and hazy with a small white head. Aroma of citrus, lots of pine and a hint of something metallic. Medium body, creamy feel, average carbonation. Taste of grapefruit and spicey hops with a long and bitter/dry finish. Something for the hopheads.

ippopotamo36 (304) - Rome, ITALY - NOV 14, 2014
0,33 bottle purchased in Serbia and consumed in Kosovo, thank you Boban. It pours cloudy orange with a medium white head. Nose: pine resin, tangerine, marihuana. Mouth: bitter blast! Amber malts in the background, if you are lucky enough to get some spare space on the palate after that bitterness has destroyed it. Diesel! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
