This Imperial India Pale Ale Rocks... Hardcore! But don’t feel obliged to take our word for it, this little bottle has a grandiloquent story to tell. 2,204 malted Maris Otter grains gave all they had to offer the world to provide the robustly delicate toffee malt canvas for the ensuing epic. 4 Hop Cones willingly sacrificed themselves in fiery cauldron that is our brew kettle to ensure your mouth is left feeling punished and puckering for more. 9,900,000,000 yeast cells frantically fermented their little hearts out as the sugars were magically turned into alcohol in the dark depths of our fermentation tanks. 2 humans and 1 canine companion are relatively happy with the results
Note this is for the new petrol blue coloured labels with white lettering, which is 9.2%. Ratings for the older bottles with with bright blue label and black lettering should go under the first edition.

UPDATED: JUL 20, 2017 Super Bier. Sehr fruchtig (tropisch) aber geht schon in die sehr bittere Richtung.

Smells dank. Taste is pretty typical of a IIPA with a creamier mouthfeel. A good go-to, especially since you can buy it in Tesco.

Trotz 150 Bittereinheiten ein sehr rundes, fruchtiges, angenehmes Bier mit Anklängen von Karamell was durchaus zu überzeugen weiß. Sehr gut abgestimmte Aromen mit guter Balance aus Hopfen und Malz.

If I remember well, this was the first IPA I ever tried, back when I didn’t know shit about craft beer. And back then I thought it was awful, waaay too bitter. "yuck, who would want to drink something so unpleasantly bitter?". Maybe because of that bad first impression, I don’t think I tried it again for years, but I have tried so many other IPAs of course and I’ve grown very fond of craft beer in general during this time. And now, look at me... Shit this is GOOD. Surprisingly malty for an IPA, but there’s also a good blend of hoppy aromas like pineaple, citrus and pine. It’s not very intense, otherwise the aroma would be devastatingly good, but it’s still quite awesome. The colour is a beautiful, clear red amber with a nice foamy head that goes down quickly. It is bitter, hell yes. Having drunk it during a hot summer night, I started it straight out the fridge and I did notice it got better after a while, so I would recommend to let it get some temperature before opening if the weather allows it.

A 330 ml "Brewdog Mr. President" labelled bottle from Tesco. Floral aromas with notes of tropical fruit, grass, caramel and citrus. Cream color head and clear amber body. Taste is bitter with notes of flowers, caramel, grapefruit, pine and citrus. The alcohol taste is too prominent in this beer, compared to most other good imperial IPAs where the focus is on the fruity hops. Am I the only one in this world that does not understand the hype around Brewdog? Let’s be honest, they are not very good? I can name dozens of Scottish breweries that are better.

Oubliez la punk IPA, buvez la hardcore IPA, une IPA carrée, dans la plus pure tradition, du fruité tropical, de l’amertume, le tout décuplé par rapport à une IPA normale.

Mr President 330ml bottle pours hazy golden with a thin white head. Aroma of pine with mint and malt. Malty fruity taste. Bittersweet finish.

DraftDodger (1510) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 23, 2017
Copenhagen 23/6 2017. 33 cl bottle from Meny. Usual BrewDog design in Grey and dark Green. Pours dark golden yellow with yellowish big bubbly head. No Lacing to speak of. Aroma is strong. Decaying Grape Fruit, loads of lemon, subdued sweet exotic fruit, fermentation and alcohol. Soft carbonation and thick palate. Flavor is medium sweet followed by distinct and strong bitterness. Aftertaste is bitter and citric. Distinct whiff of alcohol. You can’t help noticing that this is a beer with a High ABV. But if you need a nice package for your alcohol this is splendid way to do it.

simontomlinson (365) - Blackburn, Lancashire, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2017
Off white fluffy head left a cover & collar on an dark amber, finely effervescent body. Aroma of malt & berries. Medium to full body. Thick & viscous on the palate. Oily. Minimal carbonation. Very smooth on the aft. Woody, red berries, plenty of malt & not too hoppy. Finishes with a really bitter tangy back.
