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.

Bomber enjoyed at the end of another trying day. Pouts golden with small white head. Lacing cap rings the glass. Lovely nose of pine, citrus... Mostly orange, tangerine, and faint grapefruit. Good malt base and enough bitterness to clean the palate but not nuke it. The scots prove they can make better beer than their english brethern.

Brewdog Punk was my first IPA when I wasn’t sure if I liked IPA’s. Anyway years later and it’s still one of my favorites which is always sitting in my cooler. First impressions: Floral, carbonated, fresh, bitter-ish and fruity. Clean finish, best to drink in and serve from a chilled environment.

Always had a points boost as it was a good beer I could buy in walking distance, I no longer live in a beerwilderness anymore though. Still a decent beer. It’s clean and drinkable. Ooh has Moyes been sacked???? Hang on...

Dragonfly1 (462) - Colorado, USA - APR 20, 2014
Cloudy orange. Light aroma of citrus fruits. Very mild taste, on the lighter end of the bitterness spectrum. Lots of orange, guava, even some grapefruit to finish. Finishes a bit sticky, with pine needle bitterness. Interesting take. More like a complex pale ale than an IPA I suppose.

Nice fruity hop aroma. Very balanced for an IPA. On the border between a conventional pale and a traditional IPA. Finishes clean.

JorgeLee (1070) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2014
Keg in the Kings Head W2. Rather an oversight that I’d not reviewed this previously. Orange amber colour, white foam. Fruity hop nose, mango and passion fruit, hint of lemon. Tastes a bit sweeter, less austerely bitter and lighter of body than I remembered. A bit more mass market maybe??? Still nice, but kind of just nice.

Cloudy gold, thicker white head. Sour fruit notes, sweet. Very interesting, complex nose. Sweeter initially, some interesting sour and bitterness. Medium body. Decent amount of carbonation. Really good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
