Rated based on notes taken 11 July 2014 -- Wow, for an IPA that’s 2 years old this beer drinks pretty darn well. Oh yeah and Viagra, I think it breaks down over time. No boners for me tonight. :-(

Forgot to rate this one way back. Poured and amber color, topped with a decent white frothy head. Nice retention. Fruity aroma with some herbal presence. Taste starts with some sweetness, followed by a very decent hoppy bitterness.

Mooie oranje kleur met een goede kraag. Ruikt honing, caramel, vanille. Prettige zoetige geur. Smaakt zoetig, honing, caramel. Tikkeltje bitter.

Bottle at paultje. Thanks to Max. Smells fruity, sweet fruit, honey. Tastes fruity, bit licorice or laurier, herbs and spices. Average carbo, medium body and a sticky dry texture.

Heerlijk bier dat ze bij Jays Waalwijk op de fles hadden. Ik dronk er een paar op mijn verjaardag op 18-04-2011 maar staat me nog steeds bij. Daarna nog 1x gedronken in 05-2011 en daarna helaas nooit meer gezien. Een van de betere in zijn soort.

Bottle from the brewery, drunk at home 11th June 2011 with tashi. Amber with a persistent small white head. Peppery, spicier nose than Punk or Hardcore. Taste has some of the guarana, with sweet malts and the expected citrus flavours from the hops. Has a parma violet hint too.

Backlog review, bottle tasted 05/30/2011. Pours hazy dark amber, respectable head with foamy lacing. Aroma is extremely herbal and piney, smells like a bag of freshly mowed grass shavings, overtones of caramel malt. Taste follows the nose: vegetal, medicinal herbal weed (not the good kind) flavor dominates, long bitter finish. Medium body, thickens a bit with warmth. Kind of a chore to get through, and no positive side effects to speak of.

Thx to Kermis @ Rampkrot Whale tasting – 33 cl. Bottle sampled. Batch 1 (only one?) – BBF 02/05/2012. Finally the Brewdog Viagra IIPA for the wedding. Murky amber orange, little white head. Heavily medicinal, vegetable notes in the nose, zucchini, lightly earthy, very odd,…. Taste is very bitter medicinal, earthly vegetables, earth, rotting zucchini, oddly more expired aspirin, roots, Chinese medicinal herbs, strangely bitter, plastic,… Med. Body. Extremely weird brew.
