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.

11/21/2010: BrewDog Hardcore IPA (Explicit Imperial Ale)... Aroma: Toffee. Appearance: Murky, tarnished golden color; crackle top beige crown. Flavor: Toffe and leafy resiny hops; earthy and fruity-like. Palate: Medium to medium-full body; thick, yet oily, chewy. Overall: Quite a mouthful!

sputnikus (96) - Brno, CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 1, 2013
Bottle. Very strong aroma with hops, citruses and pineapple notes, also some litchi and tangerines. Pours clear dark amber liquid with slightly tanned, minimal head. Taste is a little bit sweet but immediately goes brutally bitter. Full body with creamy texture and lively carbonation. Ends with long dry finnish, full of hops. Very pleasant and refreshing beer, almost ideal imperial IPA for me.

Argonian (280) - Athens, GREECE - AUG 1, 2013
On tap. Pours a pale hazy orange body, with an average white head that stays until I finish my glass. Very floral and tropical aroma. Heavy bitter taste on this one, blown away, a little harsh though. Medium carbonated, oily texture, medium bodied. A nice treat for sure, if not a little harsh on the flavour.

Quite sweet initially from the caramel malts followed by a good bitter orange/citrus base of hops. Overall very smooth. Very good but I think I prefer their single IPA (such as Dead Pony Club) as the citrusy hops come through more strongly.

oops (211) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 30, 2013
Amber color, small white head. In aroma you get what you expect - lots of hops and also some citrus hints. Taste is superb - IBU150 is there ;) Slightly sweet in between first emotion and aftertaste, but ends up with dry mouth and more bitter ....

Majek (795) - Ząbki, POLAND - JUL 29, 2013
Classic of Imperial IPA doesnt disappoint, but it is not perfect. Nice head and lacing. Very strong aroma of citrus, lots of mango, litchi and mandarin. Taste is firstly sweet with full of citrus fruitiness and caramel malt, after that appears very strong bitterness, but a little bit to harsh. It makes the finish is unpleasant.

zenkis (812) - Ogre, LATVIA - JUL 28, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2014 Pours clear, intense copper reddish with beige thick foam, interesting yeasty lasing. Aroma - intense pine, citrus hops, malty caramel, candies, very pleasant. Taste - medium plus malt sweet with average plus bitter from hoping. But this one is wonderful brew anyway. Palate - astringent mouthfeel, above medium bodied, average carbonation, thick-slick texture, dry finish, long one with nice heavily bitter aftertaste. Indeed D/I IPA. Very intense flavor so this is sipping brew not drinking. Long finish, even after few hours flavor didnt dwindle. Wow.
update:18.01.2014.
Dont now what happened but this time bottle was so un-intense in flavor, yes it was still tasty but there was no wow moment, weird maybe I become more old and gloomy. Or maybe Brew Dog starts to brew mass production patterns.

Uit de fles @ Bryans bierproeverij. Amberkleurig met een witte kraag, troebel van de gistdeeltjes, dat is een goed begin. In de geur mango van de hop. In de smaak volbitter en een enorme body, een biertje voor. Liefhebbers van hop en dat ben ik. Topper

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - JUL 26, 2013
11.2oz bottle served in a Sam Adams Perfect Pint glass. Best before: 20-8-13 A - Pours a dark hazy copper with a frothy tan head. Nice retention and lacing. S - Citrus, grapefruit, lemon, baked bread, caramel, toffee. T - Bittersweet grapefruit, sweet toffee and toasted caramel malts, herbal, pine, and peppery hops. Theres a tangy earthy quality that rides along the moderate bitterness. The sweet caramel malt push back against the onslaught of hops to provide pretty good balance. M - Full bodied, light to medium carbonation, sticky. A nice example of the style. Not as bitter as I thought i would be but very full flavored and surprisingly balanced. Serving type: bottle 02-09-2013
