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.

It's like the Hardcore, but softer and with more fruit flavour. It's a great beer, really well done!

Bottle. Had this a few times on tap (version 2 - Feb 2013 - was pretty good) but this is so astringent, it crosses the line into unpleasantness. Like extreme grapefruit concentrate, it puckers your tongue into submission and hangs about forever. Just one-dimensional. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

300ml bottle from ales by mail. Appearance is a clear light golden colour with a large creamy white head. Aroma is earthy and toasty with sweetness of caramel and honey. Taste is slightly sour and sweet with a powerful bitter and dry finish. Ace beer.

kerenmk (2918) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 23, 2015
Bottle at Amsterdam Cafe Pub, Granada, Spain, 3.3.2015. BBD 26.2.2015. Cloudy orange with a white head. Fruity aroma of cloudy apple juice, and a fruity, a little oxidized, taste. Medium body, bitter, fruity finish.

guiroul33 (161) - Bordeaux, FRANCE - MAR 22, 2015
bottle 33cl from Bierhal De Koninck, @ home. The hops taste and bitterness are a bit too agressive for my taste. Overall a good IPA though.

mrgazreid (1) - Kendal, Cumbria, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2015 does not count
330ml Bottle. Fantastic Hoppy, Fruity, Bitter IPA. Aroma is Citrus Grapefruit. Perfect balance of bitter and dryness. Excellent. Only slight criticism is that its a bit too drinkable for 7.2% abv!

Tuoksussa sitrusta, tunkkaista ruohoisuutta ja humalapellettisyyttä. Nätti olut: oranssihko, kirkas mutta seassa paljon pieniä partikkeleita. Tiheä vaahto. Maku yllättävän yksioikoinen ja teollinen. Humalapelletit tulevat mieleen. Vahvan ruohoisa, hieman mäntyisä. Kuivan rapsakka suutuntuma, hieman epätasapainoinen. Humalointi vaikuttaa vitsiltä eikä harkitulta, maistaisin vain varoituksena.

PabloZab (193) - Wroclaw, POLAND - MAR 16, 2015
Barwa zlota z biala lekko przybrudzona piana szybko schodzaca do cienkiego kozuszka, ktory tez szybko znika, slabiutki lacing. Aromat intensywny, czerwonego grapefruita, bardzo przyjemny. W smaku wytrawne, bardzo goryczkowe z cierpkim posmakiem soku z czerwonego grapefruita i delikatna slodycza na koncu. Dluga chmielowa goryczka utrzymuje sie na podniebieniu ale nie zalega choc po pewnym czasie jest troche meczaca. Piwo sredniotresciwe, fajnie zbalansowane przez co srednio do dobrze pijalne.

mansquito (3873) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAR 15, 2015
A la biere comme a la biere, paris: pours orange with a white head. Aroma is grapefruit, more citrus, and maybe some flowers. Taste is pretty bitter. Sweet finish. Bitter hoppy aftertaste. Really good.
