The first super high gravity beer Iíve had that actually tasted like beer. Massive hops on the nose, orange, grapefruit and peach come through. You defiantly get the alcohol but it doesnít overwhelm the overall flavor which has brandy like tones with serious bittering and flavor hops.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle at the Ginger Man, NYC. Pours a cloudy, amber-red with very little head. Strong hop aroma with pine, citrus and alcohol. Flavor has some sweetness like caramel and lots of earthy, fruity, resiny bitterness. The body is thick and full, with slight carbonation and tons of warmth. Finishes hoppy with lingering bitterness and boozy burn. Not too shabby.

Bottle shared by jtclockwork at the jimmack Invitational í10. Holy booze bomb Batman. My rating should stop right there but I will continue. Poured a clear lifeles, headless brown body. Aroma is soooooo boozy that itís ridiculous. There are some hidden traces of honey, maple syrup and citrus. The body is hotter then any alcohol I have ever tried and the only redeeming quality was that there was a hint of carbonation to signify that this was supposed to be a beer. Amazingly after the gasoline flavor passes you can actually pick up some notes of hops, citrus rind, wood, caramel and toffee. Maybe this is a ber after all, a bad never should be made again beer but a beer none the less.

Whew, donít try to drink the whole thing. With all the alcohol, it will drink like brandy or whiskey. That being said, it still has some great IPA flavors, just amplified, overemphasizing some of the piney/hoppy nature. Grab about 10 friends, some shot glasses, and add it to the tasting list.

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.

1.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
