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.

squarta (68) - - MAY 28, 2012
impossibile cominciare dall’analisi visiva perche’ gia’ mentre si versa il profumo e’ davvero imponente e inebriante! Il colore in ogni caso e’ giallo limpido e la schiuma praticamente assente. Profumo come detto molto pungente, con punte di limone, coriandolo e zenzero appena accennato. Sapore estremamente secco, come bere una pietra pomice. Una lama amara che trafigge le papille gustative e si apre in un amplesso di aromi e sfumature, una volta ripresi dallo shock iniziale! Di certo una birra non facile, ma proprio per questo entremamente gratificante. Solo per gente allenata!

En frisk IPA som ikke er av de bitreste man får tak i. God balanse selv om jeg lot meg friste til å drikke den kald.

W aromacie bardzo intensywna ipa, cytrusowo - tropikalna, rześka, naprawdę ładny zapach. Z wyglądu klarowne z niezłą białą pianą, kolor słomkowy, plus za tę klarowność. W smaku wytrawne, cytrusowe, chmielowe w stylu amerykańskim, lekko podbudowane słodem. Pijalne, lekkie. Bardzo solidna ipa, niczego nie urwie, ale wad też tu nie znajdziemy

cmacklin (709) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 20, 2016
330ml bottle. Pours a hazy golden orange with a large, frothy, long lasting, off-white head that laces nicely. Sweet aroma of caramel malt, grapefruit, tropical fruit, stone fruit and grass. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, grapefruit, tropical fruit, peach and pine needles with a dry, bitter, hop resin finish. Medium body with an oily texture and average carbonation. Very tasty.

Bottle. A bit disappointing for Brewdog. The taste is a bit off, and it’s somewhat flat. Not much head.

The first thing that hits you is the intense aroma of berries and tropical fruits. I’m not usually one for sweet beverages. My first impression is "too sweet." The taste is a nice blend of berries and tropical fruits but balanced by biscuits and hops. Overall I’m impressed and I’m suprised it’s 5.6% because it tastes like less.

Flaske 0.33L på Verdensteatret. Delvis klar strågul med tynt hvitt skum. Lukt humle, sitrus. Smak sitrus, humle, fruktig markert fin bitterhet. Veldig god IPA

bottle: a friend introduced me to punk some years ago and started me on my craft beer journey.....it still stands out in my mind....I love the pale colour and the amazing punch of tropical fruit in the aroma that gives way to more subtle floral and pine notes ...think of a tropical fruit and its got it ...I live in Greece and we have a lot of loquats and I kind of think punk smells of loquats....maltiness present....great mouth feel ...and a brilliant strong but rounded bitter finish...perfect for beach ...after a swim when you got that saltiness in your mouth
