This fresh, full flavour natural beer is our tribute to the classic IPAs of yester-year. The post modern twist is the addition of amazing fruity hops giving an explosion of tropical fruit flavours and a sharp bitter finish.

Excellent brew. I had this one and was a bit dismayed by the low abv and I thought the lack of it would lessen the intensity of the taste. After all this is the brewery that put out the End of History, one of the brews with the highest abv. Man was I wrong. This is a fine brew. Amber hue. Darker than your typical IPA. Big head. Hoppy. A bit malty too. But it is not dry. The wash down is smooth. It tatstes better than other IPA’s with a higher abv. Fine brew. Me likes the Scottish. Rock your kilt with this bad boy!

UPDATED: OCT 2, 2014 Pours a clear yellow/golden with a white head. Aroma of grassy hops, citrus fruits, grapefruit. Not as bitter as you’ve come to expect from the style. Quite fond of this one, nice and easy to drink IPA.

On tap at De Spuyt. Clear gold pour with small white head. Aroma of light buttery notes, peachy hops, very light citrusy/piney notes. Taste is biscuity, light fruity hop flavor, a bit soapy. Palate is light with medium carbonation. Definitely taste faded, still not too bad.

Excalibur123 (170) - Soria, SPAIN - NOV 24, 2013
Color amarillo pálido, media capa de espuma que perdura unos mms, aromas marcados a cítricos, pomelo y flores, entrada muy suave con un toque cítrico, al principio no se aprecia amargor pero al rato te sorprende, alcohol moderado, notas herbales, una IPA más suave que las made in USA , muy refrescante , pos gusto herbal.

Zachter en fruitiger dan ik verwacht had. Met natuurlijk een mooie bitterheid om het af te sluiten. Een behoorlijke aanrader!

Bomber from La Primera. Pours an unclear orange with a bit of a white head that faded quickly. Little lacing. Aroma has -- I wanted to say "hullow, how are yuh" -- citrus and other fruits and pine and caramel. Taste is of bitter grapefruit and lemons, sweet caramel malts and mangoes and some resin. Medium bodied and sticky. Finishes to the bitter side of bittersweet. A solid IPA with some nice tastes, leaning bitter.

Bonne IPA assez équilibrée. Pas très longue en bouche. Couleur assez claire. Ce n’est pas ma préférée de chez Brewdog mais c’est une très bonne façon de faire découvrir les IPA...

Classic US West Coast IPA taste despite the fact that Brewdog is Scotish. Love this IPA ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle (660mL) from BrewDog Online Store. One of my all-time favourite beers, could drink it every day. Not one element really stands out, but it is just a well made, well balanced IPA. Piney, grapefruit hops, subtle malt sweetness, full body, great mouthfeel. Love it!

mikkos (210) - FINLAND - NOV 21, 2013
Orange hazy beer with a white medium longlasting head. Aroma is pure brewdog hoppiness, floral, fruity, piney, resinous, bubblegum. Almost artificial like. Taste is a somewhat short of the aroma, still nicely hopped, but not really kicking. Doesn't deliver what the aroma promises, but good and drinkable nevertheless. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
