Our new 8.5% Imperial India Pale Ale is a ticking time bomb of a beer. Born To Die 04.07.2015 is even more heavily whirlpool and dry-hopped than the majority of our beers – with the sole intention of passing that level of flavour on to you, as quickly as possible. Hopped with Simcoe, Amarillo, Citra and Mosaic, from the moment it leaves our bottling and kegging line, it is on the clock.

Born To Die takes a huge amount from the brilliant Stone ‘Enjoy By…’ series of beers – and it is with the blessing of our good friend Greg Koch at Stone that we are putting our own BrewDog spin on the concept. To our knowledge, it’s the first time in Europe that something like this has been done. Born To Die is the definitive chance to let people see (and taste) the differences time can infer on IPA.

SonOfAnarchy (587) - ST HELENA - JAN 1, 2018
Can. Pours cloudy lively golden with a white head. Aroma of intense hoppiness in the kind of citrus, exotic fruits, slight pine resin, slight herbal. Taste is intensely dry, with a very high bittenress. Flavors of intense dry hops, exotic fruits, slight citrus, slight pine twigs, resin. Medium body, slick texture, lively carbonation. Extremely hoppy, tasty. As the label says: "A eulogy to the hops that sacrificed themselves in its creation."

MikeBeermaster (1200) - that shaggy maggot, POLAND - DEC 26, 2017
Tough aroma of exotic freshness with notes of citrus, some hoppy herbal note and minimal pine resin with sprucy back. Cloudy orange in the glass with a medium head. Taste is dry with notes of harshy hoppy herbal notes with notes of citrus peel, lupulin, some herbs with astringent citrusy note. Intense and interesting, but bit overwhelming.

herrklemann (571) - Graz, AUSTRIA - NOV 30, 2017
Can. Hazy gold with an amber hue and a medium white head. Still lots of pronounced hops, tropical fruit, grapefruit, loads of pine, a bit dank. Medium sweetness, light tart notes and a soft, medium bitter finish. Oily medium body with soft, pearly carbonation. Still very nice.

SinH4 (6896) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - SEP 29, 2017
Bottle, 31.8.2016. Hazy golden color with white head. Aroma is jammy tangerines, oranges, pale malts, a bit sweaty. Taste is marmalade, pale malts, sweaty, resinous. Oily mouthfeel with low carbonation. Still very nice!

ManVsBeer (11473) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2017
Can from Booths, Media City. Golden with a head. Has a heavy tropical fruit aroma, with its strength not evident here. It is however evident once you start sipping, and does its best to subdue what is still a strong tropical fruitiness in its taste.

Gurthnar (6298) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUL 2, 2017
Can 13.5.2017. Tasty, lots of juicy fruity hoppiness. Exotic, great. High bitterness, moderate perceived fruity sweetness. Easy drinking, ANV hidden well. Great.
