Overheard: "You can only have beer in brown bottles."
Bottle at BrewDog Camden on 9 Apr 2012. Poured a clear, bright orange, with a dense off white head. Aroma of massive resinous hops, grapefruit, passionfruit, mango and honeycomb. Super smooth mouthfeel. Golden syrup flavours, with tinned fruit, melon, biscuit, burnt sugar and herbs. Perfect balance of intense bitter hops, pine, grass and sweet fruit and caramelised sugar in the finish. Possibly the best BrewDog beer I’ve ever had... Barrelbelly (750) - BELGIUM - OCT 18, 2014
Orange browny with small head. Very sweet barley wine style double ipa. Bitter sweet aftertaste Abio (1869) - BERMUDA - OCT 18, 2014
Amber coloured brew. Very siropy, and alcoholic. Ruins it a bit, cause the fruity taste on its own is not bad at all. Mr_Pink_152 (4886) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2014

One of those exciting Brewdog things, a kind of ’triple IPA’, with a coarse, yellowish white, thick but quickly dissipating head (the latter does not have to surprise given the very impressive alcohol strength) and a warm amber glowing colour, cristal clear, very pretty, quietly fizzy. Very, and I mean very powerful aroma, with overwhelming hops and equally overwhelming alcohol, but none of the two really disturb me because the whole bouquet boosts complexity enough, with hints of cognac, cloves, apple sauce, candied orange, tonic water, mango, grapefruit, banana liqueur, pine needles and methylated spirits. In the mouth an onset of a liqueurish sweetishness, as in Grand Marnier, medium carbonation, caramelly and honeyish malts smooth, not too thick especially in view of its strength, towards the end a ’green’, overpowering hop bitterness stripping the tongue along with the expected booze, reminiscent of brandy and gin and drying mouth and throat alike, in a sticky and - unfortunately but understandably - somewhat astringent way. An interesting experience nevertheless. jercraigs (10303) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 19, 2014

Bottled @beernest. This is the strongest IPA I have had, and the only "triple IPA", which is written on its label. I should say it is really a strong one, don't try it after you've had several beers. Stuu666 (13112) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 8, 2014
Bottle at Craig’s. Pours copper amber, nose is toffee, pine, taste is dry, hugely bitter, sweet toffee, fruity, holding up well.
