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.

Bottle. Pours clear golden with medium white head. Nice hoppy aroma, citrus, tropical fruits, maybe white fruits as well. Some kind of emptiness in taste... Bitterness isnít more as at medium level, itís quite dry, thereís also lack of hoppy notes. A little bit disappointed.

Nice, solid aroma of citrus, grapefruit, mangoes and gooseberries with a slight bready note from the malt. The flavor is full on hops with a nice balanced bitterness. The malt balances out the bitterness well. Really good. One of my go-to beers!

Hier j'ai goûté la Hardcore IPA, aujourd'hui c'est donc la Punk IPA... Je préfère la Hardcore. Élevé à la bière belge et forte, 5,6% c'est un peu léger pour moi, ça manque de corps ! Belle prestation néanmoins, jolie couleur dorée, tête de mousse absente. Arôme d'agrume remarquable pour une amertume maîtrisée malgré la sécheresse de la bière. --- Dirty Google traduction :) Yesterday I tasted the Hardcore IPA today so this is the Punk IPA ... I prefer Hardcore. Raised in the Belgian and strong beer, 5.6% is a bit light for me, it lacks body! Good performance nevertheless nice golden color, head of moss missing. Aroma of citrus for a remarkable bitterness control despite drought beer.

Bottle from "cerveteca" bar in Lisbon. Pour is pale gold with a moderate white head. Aroma is a mixture of sweet caramel with apricot and with some hint of passion fruit. Full of citrus flavor and some malt with a very light bitter aftertaste. It is moderately carbonated with a medium light body. Not as hoppy as you might expect from an IPA, but very refreshing and easy drinking, specially on a hot summer day.

Bottle @ home. I know I might be overrating this beer a bit, but it seems I return ever so often, that it has to count for something. Fresh, immense citrusy hop aroma. Taste is sweet malt, lemon, grapefruit and biscuit. Light mouthfeel and medium to high carbonation. Love it, love it, love it. - with thirst, Niklas

There have been many surprises when looking up beers only to find I haven't rated them. None more so than this! God know how much I've imbibed over the years. Anyway, having a pint at the newly opened Brewdog Clapham. Hopefully the fresh paint smell won't overpower the beer too much. Pours gold with a white head. Light aroma actually - lightly hoppy with a little lemon. Light to medium body, medium carbonation. Lemon, light caramel, a little orange, white toast, light pine, and a hint of funky veg at the finish... Easy drinking and tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Alla Brewdog le IPA le sanno fare bene, questa birra ne Ť sicuramente la conferma, nel bicchiere si presenta con un colore giallo limpido Ť una schiuma che sparisce velocemente, allíodore risaltano subito note erbacee. Il sapore Ť secco ma comunque molto equilibrato con le note erbacee e amare. Favolosa

God aroma, frisk og syrlig sitrusaktig smak. Følges opp av litt bitterhet i ettersmaken. En veldig god IPA! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pour is pale gold with moderate soapy white head. Aroma is sweet caramel and apricot. Not much hop on the nose but itís a very pleasant and unique aroma for an IPA. Taste is crisp citrus hops. Very citrus. Some pine in the back with a grain, almost lager taste, unlike many IPAs Iíve tasted. The palate is very thin, body is medium light, finish is short with that later taste as well as some medium bitterness. If youíre looking for a hop bomb, this is not your beer. If you are looking for a more mild but interesting IPA, then give this a try.
