A beer of inherent contradiction. This heavy weight of the beer world is strikingly delicate with a white gold appearance. The light fruity aroma dominates the initial confrontation; lychee, kiwi and passionfruit all prevail with subtle nuances of cherry and strawberry. Don’t be fooled however by this smooth medium bodied ale. As it trickles down your throat as this wolf in sheep’s clothing begins to grow teeth. The bite comes as the bitterness builds and endures no matter how hard the malty sweetness of the alcohol tries to tame this ferocious beast.

Wild, fun exotic citrus aroma. Rindy bitterness with juicy exotic fruit hop flavors. Body is medium light and dryness enhances bitterness/hop perception. This is fun stuff.

Pours a clear golden color, topped with a fine frothy white head. Pleasant citrusy hops in the aroma. The taste starts easy, followed by a fair share of bitterness. Really enjoyable.

It has nice big foam with a little creamy trend. Smells wonderful citrus and flowers. Hoppy bitterness is the first and only flavors, but it is also an IPA. Its hops has the flavor of fruit and citrus and slightly aggressive in its expression. Lots of brash and aggressive hops, good fruit notes, all without taking the upper hand, and of course an aftertaste that is dry.

Meine Flasche war älter. genau 1 monat vor "Best before" datum getrunken. -leicht süße zitronennoten -herb -sehr leichte grapefruitnote -sehr wässrig,bitter im abgang -wenig carbonisiert Hab den verdacht das sich der hopfen schon aufgelöst hat. allerdings wars immernoch vor Brewdogs Haltbarkeitsdatum deswegen schreib ich trotzdem die bewertung

Aroma and taste are of the modern IPA and very similar as the Canadian and US beers. Nice balance of citris and malt. Highly recommended.

From old notes. Original Punk is a marvelous thing. Hazy yellow straw in colour with a huge just off white head. Much uncompromising raw dry citric bitterness which dominates from beginning to end and after. Great.

Floral hops. Pale color. Clear liquid and head. It lasts longly in the mouth. Nothing else to report, Sir! :-)
