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.

Wonderfull beer. Complex aroma to me, but sweet malt with noble hoppy-dark fruitfulness, sugary is in vanguard, a bit oaky. Pours pale golden with white top, lasting enough. Taste is pleasantly sweet start with hoppy bitter afterpath, not dry. Medium to full bodied with creamy texture - this one is really difficult in flavor and very, very enjoyable. Smooth one.

660ml bottle. Pours cloudy light copper. Smooth head that doesn’t last very long. Mild citrus aroma. Slightly sweet apple, followed by tart citrus, a little malt and a gentle but lasting bitter finish. This is very easy drinking and extremely nice.

Dogbrick (7585) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 13, 2012
Pours a clear pale golden color with a medium fluffy white head that diminishes slowly. Patchy lacing on the glass. Aroma of piney hops and malt. Light-bodied and crisp with flavors of floral hops, pine and bready malt. The finish is hoppy with a fruity aftertaste. Above average overall.

It’s taken me ages to get round to drinking this, goodness only knows why! It is a great ale, no wonder BrewDog have met with such success. Grown up flavours, lots of complicated bitterness. Strong on hops, with some spicy resin and a little bit of cloves in the background. Tastes bitter, dry and sharp with a finish that leaves an interesting biscuit flavour and a desire for more!.

Delicious. Fruity notes merge beautifully with robust hops flavours. Pleasant bitterness all around. A winner. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fantastic. The bitterness of the hops is masked almost perfectly. Strong tropical aroma, wonderfully rounded taste. Delivers the fruitiness and the punch you expect, but without the heaviness of other IPAs. Not tiring at all. A masterfully balanced beer.

Bottle. Pours a golden color with a nice off-white head on top. Aroma is pine, citrus fruit, honey, peach, sweet biscuit malt. Flavor is pine upfront with honey, orange rind, and toasted breadiness. On the palate the beer starts with a nice hoppy bitterness with toasted bread malts and honey coming in too add a semi-sweetness. Medium body, medium carbonation.

.33l bottle in the aftermath of the elections as a gift to myself. A gorgeous, complex and overally incredibly tasty brew. Warm orange-yellow body with minor foam head. Aroma of glorious hops fill my heart with joy, especially the hint of dark dank juices Chinook and Simcoe provide. Smooth beer, shows off the hops in a flattering way. Makes me just want to drink more of these. Tasty, well balanced stronger IPA that i could session with any time I was so lucky to find myself in the room with a case of BrewDog beers. Another great, solid standout IPA. Grab some and enjoy them.
