Bottle from Brewdog online shop. Pours quite dark for an IPA, good white head. Aromas of tropical fruits and resin, big hoppiness. Good bitter taste and finish too. Good US-style IPA.

An average IPA and certainly not in the American tradition. Less hop, more malt - but thats’ not a bad thing. Earthy flavors are more pervasive here.

Den här var riktigt bra! Kraftig beska med lång eftersmak. Viss sötma. Bra balans.

Unusual IPA. Not sure how fresh my bottle was but still an interesting beer. Dark murky brown, like a witch’s cauldron. Nice foamy off white head and lacing. Really nice sweet malty barley-wine like aroma. Taste is cocoa, sweet malts, a touch of hops. Not a typical American IPA, but a pretty nice beer nonetheless. As I’m drinking more of this I keep thinking this is a barley wine with a bit of hops.

UPDATED: FEB 28, 2014 Bottle 330ml @ home from Vinmonopolet. Pours pretty dark, orange to reddish. Nice medium head. Aroma is exquisite! Medium sweet with tropical fruits and hops-a-lot. Taste is hops, tropical fruits, citrus and some alcohol. Pine as well. Gets very bitter towards the end, without that being a problem for me. I think this is one of the best IPAs I?ve tried.
