On draft at Brewdog pub, Glasgow. Dark golden colored, small head. Very hoppy nose, pine. Very bitter flavor, but drinkable. Only in finish it really becomes astringent. Funny experiment, but just too much.

330ml bottle, pours hazy dark orange, small head. Aroma is super hoppy, mountains of concentrated grapefruit juice, spice, malt is sticky and sweet. Obviously its very bitter, I have never had a more bitter beer, like a gobful of crushed paracetamol, its a bit heavy for me, but glad I tried it. I like my hops, but this is a bit much for my palate! Soft carb, full body and super resiny

Bottle. Orange in colour, clear, small head. Aroma of resiny hops, tons of them. In taste very dry with enormus resiny, frapefruit bitterness, that stays on adtertaste for a really long time. Really bitter beer, very nice stuff

Brun med stort ljusbrunt skum. Doftar sött/maltigt och lite humle. Smakar lite humligt men beskan blir för mycket! Inte sĺ konstigt men rolig öl! !

Ni un ibu más ni menos. Entra fácil en la boca, pero una vez se va del paladar comienza el amargor. Al respirar fuerte por la boca se aprecian muchos matices. Ni comiendote un tapón de cera de los oídos llegarás a tantos ibus!!!

33cl bottle at home from Only Good Beer, Budapest. Body is hazy copper amber, head is big, beige, rocky, fully lasting, excellent lacing. Nose is fruity, flavor is caramel, chocolate, herbs, spices, tons of hops, quinine. Medium sweet, heavy hoppy bitter. Finish is very long lasting hoppy very heavy bitter, like medicine, later also light salty but no sweetness or any other taste stays. Full body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Not that easy, really bitter, way too much hops, very good.

Best by bottle for August 2016. Pours a light orange with a fluffy 1.5 inch head. Aroma of citrus and pine some breast malt and dank hops. Flavor is nice and hoppy with floral notes and some bready malt. Finishes pretty bitter. When fresh this beer is awesome, when aged just alright. It’s very good but the price is outrageous! They must be making 1,000 dollars per barrel at $8.50 a bottle. $ 16 a four pack should be the price!

I received a beer that was dark ruby and had little head. I was surprised when the bartender submerged the tap in the beer during the pour. The smell was bitterness, caramel and rind. Sweet dark stone fruit, citrus, caramel and some licoricey flavor I’d expect to find in a stout made an appearance on my taste buds. It was interesting but not exactly fun or great. Bitterness was very apparent but the beer was no where near as bitter as some beers go. This beer didn’t live up to its name.

Awesome. I know the reality is that my palate couldn’t truly detect this many IBU’s but I did detect the strong bitterness, which was even. Not harsh or one-sided. The malt balance was incredible. A must have for all hop lovers.
