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.

asteele8 (322) - Des Moines, Washington, USA - NOV 9, 2012
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.

Marcius (197) - Geneva, SWITZERLAND - JUL 27, 2014
Appearance with a golde / amber color, slightly cloudy liquid and medium foaming. Very hoppy aroma: passion fruit, mango, floral and caramel (malt). On the palate the bitterness is strong from start to finish. An excellent IPA, with the peculiarities of Brewdog.

Bottle says best before 8-22-14. So assuming it is at least several months old and past itís prime. Old floral hops.

Barnoloid (139) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Can pour. This is a classic interpretation of the IPA style. Stays true to a solid balance of hops, bitterness and a sweet malt to offset the bitter notes. Easy drinking, something of a gateway beer for entrants into craft brews, which I feel is the aim here.

Fritz123 (939) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Draft at the Sybarite Pig in Boca Raton, Fl. Tulip. Pours a mostly clear golden -amber with a thick white fluffy head. Decent lacing throughout. Aroma is very citrus fruits and mild pine. The overall flavor was heavy citrus and some mild pine bitterness. Nicely balanced and very flavorful. The finish was mild bitterness, but the overall theme is citrus. Good, mild, IPA.

THis beer had me laughing. First off, ITS AWESOME. However, itís definitely NOT an IPA. Itís a Pale Ale and it certainly tastes like it. IMHO if this is scoring as an IPA it is WAY off the mark. As a PA though... well you have an awesome beer.

Lovely copper with minimal head, hoppy citrus and tropical fruity aroma. Crisp and moderately bitter. Solid and highly drinkable IPA.

Maakun (517) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 23, 2014
Can. Dark golden with bubbly white head. Lemon, grapefruit, dak bread, light roasted nuts, band aids. Starts fresh and pruity, then some pine and malts kick in and it finishes dry and bitter with again some fruits. Medium bodied, light fresh feel. Great balanced and complex stuff. Pretty good.

Keg at the George Abbot, Guildford. Pours pale golden with a thin white head. Aroma of pineapple and citrus. Short bitter finish.

Aroma of pineapple and mown grass. Heavy on the carbonation but that just heightens the flavour on the palate. Big hop bitterness mellowed out by sweet smooth malt. One of my top 5 beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
