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.

Hanoi (927) - Greater Manchester, - MAY 16, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2016 Bottle. Nose is resin, melon slight sugar slight honey. Taste is resin, leading to tropical fruits some pine and honey and an odd slightly berry, too short finish. Mouthfeel is well rounded. A decent introduction to new world imperial IPAs but there are better out there. Bottle: As Mr President. Lost the tropical feel, more resinous, grapefruit and a heavy vodka note with badly integrated alcohol. Meh.

This is dangerously drinkable. Although almost a barleywine (US), booze doesn't dominate, it's and nice resiny, with lots of late hops. I hear it's been renamed Mr President. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Barwa ciemno bursztynowa, piana średniej wysokości. W aromacie karmel + cytrusy. W smaku intenstwna gorycz, wyczuwalny alkohol. Trochę zamulające.

Aroma of lemon peel, with caramel from the malt. One finger off-white head, dark amber colour. Taste is very hoppy, but also with loads of sweet maltiness. Goes down very smooth for 9.2%. To compare it to another strong IPA by Brewdog, I probably prefer Jack Hammer, but this is also a great beer. Its wide availability is a bonus.

bjcp aromat 8, wygląd 2, smak 16, usta 4 oglnie 8. Aromat - Intensywne cytrusy, przebija się żywica. Piana spora, po redukcji zero lacingu. W smaku słodko, owocwo lekko ale stonowana słodkość. Fajna goryczka, potęzna, ale nie zalega.

UPDATED: MAY 10, 2017 For the price this is a very good beer, but it is not quite to my taste: rich, sickly toffee taste, sŵeet aroma. Beautiful cognac appearance in the glass. A 330ml bottle is too much for me due to the sweetness though

zbyszek_cz (40) - POLAND - MAY 8, 2017
W zapachu trochę karmelu i toffi w połączeniu z owocami tropikalnymi i lekką chmielowością. W smaku mocno wyczuwalny alkohol, słodko likierowy. Do tego całkiem spora goryczka, dość przyjemna. Alkohol mocno pali w gardło. Chmiel fajnie wyczuwalny, raczej w stronę owocw tropikalnych. Brakuje trochę świeżości.

Bottle as Mr President. Nice soaked fruit aroma with some booze. Pours so dark compared to all the juicebombs out there. Orange zest and soaked raisin taste with medium mouthfeel. Finishes boozy. For a DIPA that can be picked up from a supermarket freely, this is great.

0,33 l. Bottle. Amber color with white head. Citrus and fruit aroma. Pine, bitter, fruit, citrus and sweet taste. Bitter finish. Medium carbonation.
