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.

Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, - MAY 9, 2010
Draught at Kbh. BeerFest2010. Clear dark amber - offwhite head. Bitterness, hoppy, caramel, grassy, piney, high hoppy, sharpness, a bit unbalanced.

lkowalkowski (445) - POLAND - AUG 17, 2017
Bursztynowe, nieprzejrzyste. Bardzo ładna piana. Drobne i gęsta. W aromacie głównie iglaki, cytrusy. W smaku grapefruitowa goryczka. Znakomite!

Bijl (698) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 14, 2017
Ge-labeld als Mr. President.... ambergeel, helder, net geen witte schuimkraag, iets koolzuur en vrij helder/gefilterd. Aroma: Karamel zoete mout, toffee, brood/biscuit, pijnboom, hars, hoppig, Citrus, grapefruit, mango, ananas. Smaak: Een booming in your face bitter, grassig en netelig, pijnboom/hars. Ik wordt er blij van! Daarna zoetig, Karamel, toffee, moutig en wat scherp prikkelig bitter van grapefruitschil. Later ook tropisch...ananas, mango, Citrus en grapefruit. Iets alcohol merkbaar maar ruim 9% merk je niet. Redelijk volle body, olieachtig en stropig mondgevoel, zacht koolzuur. Afdronk is bitter en grassig...droog maar ook plakkerig.

Bottle at Smokie’s, Pezinok. Extraordinary aroma, hops, raisins, citruses, all strong and beautiful. Clear amber colour with short white head. Rich taste, hops, obligatory citruses, bit of honey, higher bitterness, quite a lot of alcohol in finish. Very nice.

theswiftsa (106) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 9, 2017
Labeled as Mr President at Tesco. Pours a clear amber, use of caramalt very obvious here. Off white head that doesn’t last long. Nose of alcohol fumes, toffee, caramel and resin. Upfront bitterness but quite smooth throughout with a lingering bitter finish. Well malt balanced with biscuit and toffee coming through gently with the resinous hops. Not a massive hit of aroma but hides the booze well with balance.

thepatrickman (1367) - Jevington, East Sussex, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2017 This starts so promising -- strong citrus and pine hops from what is clearly a ton of American hops -- but there’s a noticeable toffee/caramel sweetness that quickly starts to overpower. Too boozy, too, which gives it an alcohol burn.

Kittenbieer (227) - LYON, FRANCE - JUL 31, 2017
Dégustée dans un verre "Straffe Hendrick",robe orangée surmontée d’une fine mousse blanche peu persistante avec une faible carbonatation.Le nez nous amène sur la bonne amertume des pamplemousses avec des notes de fruits rouges mêlés à l’alcool .Un ensemble très parfumé qui se retrouve en bouche avec l’amertume qui domine toujours et la chaleur de l’alcool nous laissant sur cette douce sensation houblonnée très agréable.Une bonne IPA comme sa petite soeur Punk!

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2017 Name changed to Mr. President. Powerful double ipa. Like Brewdogs jack hammer on steroids. Strong hoppy aroma, taste of caramel and (obvious) strong alcohol presence.

appiantiqua (229) - Lyon, FRANCE - JUL 31, 2017
Dégustée dans un verre "Straffe Hendrick". Température de début 6° environ. Robe brun orangé surmontée d’une fine mousse blanc cassé de faible persistance; peu de carbonatation. Nez très agréable sur les agrumes et les houblons; Le goût est très largement dominé par une importante mais plaisante amertume; on perçoit toutefois des saveurs maltées et des notes de douceur sous-jacentes avec un alcool plutôt bien intégré. La finale est assez longue et astringente sur des sensations végétales(houblons). Une bonne IPA différente de la punk de la même brasserie : à découvrir.

Stew41 (2040) - Phuket, THAILAND - JUL 30, 2017
About $14 a bottle in Phuket but would probably cost that in Oz. Seriously big and thick but hard to expect much else. Not easy drinking. Palate has pilsner-like stinky grass and funk. Burning finish.

wariat74 (17) - Poznañ, POLAND - JUL 25, 2017
12.12.2017 srednie nasycenie, mala ale bardzo trwala piana. Goryczka srednio wysoka bardzo przyjemna. Nic nie moge na to poradzic ale… genialne piwo!
