This Imperial India Pale Ale Rocks... Hardcore! But dont 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.

Nocturne (1917) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2012
330ml bottle. Hazy orange with a golden-tinged head. Immediate waft of pine and citrus, but the aroma falls a bit short of my expectations. Things continue that way: apart from the finish there doesnt seem much that grabs me. Seems like a fairly well constructed double IPA, but perhaps Id enjoy a fresher bottle more.

77ships (8494) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 30, 2012
Draft @ CML Fontainas // touch above a pint // clear caramel amber with a slightly off-white head (hint of coffee with cream) // smell is decent DIPA fare pine hops, mango & exotic fruits with a touch of caramel malt sweetness underneath // taste is very heavy sweet upfront particularly for this style, caramel blended with burned sugar & cough syrup, toffee, sweeet malt heavy, touch liquorish, after a while the sweetness persists but you also get a floral bitterness in the back // body is sticky, gooey & caramel, medium carb. // kind of was expecting / hoping for something that had hops in it you know the cough syrup & caramel, dont know seems like they really overdid the malts // hardcore in a way though // liked the glass though

A really okay IPA - not fantastic, but not bad. Good choice if you have nothing better to drink.

sebletitje (9556) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 27, 2012
draft @ Moeder Lambic Fontainas. This beer rocks. Cuivre/orange, col pais beige. Arme est vraiment une bombe houblonne.Bouquet fruit et rsineux avec ce ct houblon ferment, pointe de pamplemousse. Le bouquet est enivrant et somptueux. En bouche, le palais est immense en profile houblon, le tout donnant un palais rsineux, fort de pin, aiguilles avec ce malt Otter bien prsent. Le houblon procure une prsence de bouche pice avec un houblon sec. Malt reste bien prsent mais toujours en retrait par rapport aux houblons, ce malt donne un profile collant/collant aux lvres qui se prte bien au style. Au final, bire traitre ne paraissant absolument pas ses 9.2%, facile avaler, superbe en bouche.

gEUS (1637) - Linden, BELGIUM - APR 26, 2012
33 cl bottle - Pours bright dark orange with a medium sticky head - creamy colour. Nose is warm and caramel, some ripe peach, hint of honey and nutmeg. Full body with nice creamy mouthfeel - nicely bitter from beginning to end; slight peppery and spicy finish.

heavy (2808) - Split, CROATIA - APR 24, 2012
21/11 0.33 l bottle, thanks ogivlado for sharing! It poured hazy, darker orange body with medium sized head. Orange and other citrus aroma, mixed with well present note of caramel and dried fruits, maybe even chocolate. Sweetish note was even better pronounced in its flavor, going to the finish. Hops are here as well, of course, but at the end are overwhelmed by chocolate. Full bodied, very pleasant brew. Good job on this one.

sir__v (2366) - Lille, FRANCE - APR 21, 2012
A nice IPA for Brewdog brewery. Nice bronze and deep copper beer, with a high and heavy white head. With a great complexity when you smell it, you feel the hops. Taste : after the first taste you have a hops explosion with a great complexity, great bitterness and very long on month. This is an extreme bitterness beer with 150IBU !
