A fury of dots and dashes come trough the receiver. The translator turns in amazement. "A Zero IBU IPA by two breweries separated by sea?" His commanding officer lays a grizzled hand on his shoulder as his eyes narrow toward the horizon. "No bastard ever won a war by playing it safe, son."
The International Arms Race is a new type of battle collaboration between hardcore American craft brewery Flying Dog and BrewDog.
Zero IBU IPA is an ale brewed with berries and herbs.
2 IPAs that rock.
Hunt them both down and see which beer you think deserves to win the battle and the war.

Beerhammaren (1782) - Jyvskyl, FINLAND - NOV 26, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2012 .33l bottle from BD webshop. Pours clear amber with medium head. Aroma is lots of herbs. Some malts, berries and fresh birch leaf. Flavor is very herby and some malts. One can taste Finnish forest. Pine, birch... Some berries and clear alcohol taste. Not bad beer, but very complex to rate. Somehow the aroma is a bit better than flavor.

Poured a slightly dark honey color with a small white head. Aroma has lots of berries with some malts. No hops in the aroma. Taste is sweet and fruity with some doughy flavors. Alcohol not noticeable. Some of the flavors are a little weird. The aftertaste has lots of blueberries with some cheese and bread. Overall its interesting, but definitely not an IPA. More like a blueberry summer beer.

Som sitt syskon r det hr en ytterst mrklig l, doften r frisk med ngon mrklig kemisk ton. Smaken br inslag av rter och tvl?!, kroppen r lite och balansen obefintlig. Slutsats: jag blir inte riktigt klok p den, smaken r stundtals god men den ger mig taskiga konnotationer, som sagt vansinnigt svr definierad.

Bottle from SB. So can You make an IPA without any Hops and without any bitterness at all? This is av very very fruity variance of "beer" but to answer the Question above; NO!

IlBevitorediLA (452) - ITALY - NOV 16, 2012
Aroma erbaceo. Al palato fruttata, erbacea con un corpo lieve. Originale ma preferico il luppolo nella birra. Probabilmente non il mio genere. C da dire che molto beverina. Strana. Ok!! come potete notare non so dare un giudizio preciso.

Idiosynkrasie (7312) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - NOV 14, 2012
330ml bottle. Clear amber colour with average, firm, frothy, minimally lacing, off-white head. Herbal aroma has notes of thyme, lavender, overall a bath salt character. Taste is minimally citrusy, herbal, decent caramel malt basis. Half-way OK.

ekstedt (6681) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 13, 2012
Bottle (33 cl) from Systembolaget. Clear amber, medium off-white head. Well, the appearance was the only decent thing about this beer. The aroma is a mix of cheap pop soda and the perfumy small cubes used in public restrooms. Fizzy and thin. Sourish with harsh bitterness.

Bottle. Clear deep golden beer with a small offwhite head. Herbal floral aroma, berries, spicy from rosemary, bready, hay, some raisins. Herbal flavor, fruity, berries, rosemary, hay, caramel, juniper berries, some pine. At least its better than the Flying Dog-version.
