COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sink the Bismarck! is beer, amplified. With the volume turned full up, it is important you that you be careful with this beer and show it the same amount of sceptical, tentative respect you would show an international chess superstar, clown or gypsy. Sink the Bismarck is a quadruple IPA that contains four times the hops, four times the bitterness and frozen four times to create at a staggering 41% ABV. This is IPA amplified, the most evocative style of the craft beer resistance with the volume cranked off the scale. Kettle hopped, dry hopped then freeze hopped for a deep fruit, resinous and spicy aroma. A full out attack on your taste-buds ensues as the incredibly smooth liquid delivers a crescendo of malt, sweet honey, hop oils and a torpedo of hop bitterness which lasts and lasts.

(Bottle, ericandersnavy) Pours a deep amber-ruby body with excellent legs. Aroma of caramel, grapefruit, bread, earth, grass, and alcohol. Flavor of pine, alcohol, and resin with dry, extremely bitter finish.

Bottle shared by wavers1 Ė thanks Baker! Pours clear amber with no head. The nose is hop oils and booze. The taste is oily hops, pepper, spiked grapefruit and booze. Slick mouthfeel. Very unique.

boamr (309) - Allentown, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 23, 2010
Bottle from Jimacks. Pours a orange color with no head just a few bubbles. Has a hop and nail polish remover smell. Wow this smells aweful. At first taste you get vanilla followed but a massive burn. One sip sits with you a while to. This beer is fucking terrable. Iím not sure what I was expecting but I should of known this was going to be shit when I knew it was brewed by Brewdog.

egajdzis (5275) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 21, 2010
Hazy golden brown color with no head or lacing on the glass. Aroma of honey, some rauch, nail polish remover, apple, and alcohol. Taste of vanilla up front with chemicals, and dry, sharp alcohol. This was pretty bad.

BOLTZ7555 (2780) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - AUG 18, 2010
Generously shared by Wavers1!!! Thanks bud!!! DAMN!!! Appreciate the innovation but this bad boyís hot!!! Beautiful copper/crimson pour that produced no head but surprisingly had minimal carbonation. Aroma is eye-crossing and nose-hair singeing. Pure alcohol meets aggressively acidic hops and lacquer. Intensely bitter and harsh is an understatement. Unique and glad I had a chance to try it.

GandGKevin (919) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - AUG 14, 2010
First of all the aroma is like you stuck your head in a bale of hops. Very viscous, coating the mouth with hop resin and alcohol. Very warming sensation as it travels to the stomach. Overall a very interesting beer.

a massive beer! .. . pours a beautiful maple syrup , light headring with legs of a fine cognac .. . aroma of fresh buckets of tree sap and fresh squeezed hops with a touch of bark .. . Coats The Mouth!!! .. very hot in the throat, like 120 proof uncut backyard bourbon; jesus, you can feel a buzz after 3 sips... . nothing like it on earth .. . honored to have tried it, a bottle by myself was awesome, lightman would have loved it, it was like drinking a whole case of IIPAís in one glass .. . No. No, Iím sorry, I donít know the number to, uh, my savings account because believe it or not I donít spend my entire day sitting around trying to memorize the fucking numbers to my fucking bank accounts! Moron!

Aroma: A surprising hop aroma, followed by fuel grade alcohol made to run jet engines, almost enjoyable. Appearance: Light coppery amber, slight carbonation. Taste: Lots of hops followed up by palate dismembering levels of aclohol, in a bad way. The bitterness isnít really noticable. Palate: I one time tasted a tiny drop of hop extract, it does similar things to your palate as this "beer". Destroys the mouth and leaves you with an unpleasant feeling that this was a bad idea. Overall: Better than Tactical Nuclear Penguin, but not by much. This is sadly mislabeled as "beer" when it has more in common with jet fuel ethanol. The BrewDog guys need to learn how to make good beer instead of this unenjoyable gimmicky crap.
