COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle and keg: Filtered. Cask: Unfiltered.
Ingredients: Marris Otter Extra Pale Malt; Chinook, Crystal, Motoeka hops. IBUs 65
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.

NOTE: The recipe was changed at the end of 2009, and this version is no longer made, if you have a bottle with a BBD after 1.1.12, you should go to the "Punk IPA (5.4%)" version.

I enjoyed this IPA more than most. It has an almost caramel smoothness to it and wasn’t overwhelmingly bitter.

It’s my favourite beer of BrewDog. Its citric aroma provides it of freshness.

Dirty hazy light blonde. Hop sweet jam and Skunky nose. Neat sweet gummy citrus. Biting and spirited light malt. Finishes itchy and cooling. I prefer the popping citra nose in the new version but I can still get off on the bite here so hopefully memory-banked this accordingly score-wise.

Bottle at Craig’s. Pours cloudy lemon yellow with a thin white head. Aromas of skunky hops. Taste is bitter, watery. Thin texture, thin body. bitter finish, thanks again Craig for a beer I didn’t think I’d see again!

Bottle. I didn’t know what to make of this beer, it didn’t have the hoppness I was expecting. Nice, but just unusual.

Ik ben sowieso al geen te grote fan van IPA en dit was echt een van de slechtste die ik al geprobeerd heb.
