keg, special
2013 Single-hop release. Part of the IPA is dead series. Single hopped with Amarillo @6.9%
Re-Released as part of 2014 selection. @7.2%
One of our favourite American hops; all about the fruit. Think blood orange, orange zest and citrussy goodness fruit, the fruit is balanced by floral notes in the most classic of new wave IPA hops.

Maris (1611) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JUL 18, 2014
From a 330ml bottle on 19/7/2014. Pours a a clear deep golden with a small head. The nose gives you some lovely passionfruit and lychee, and some floral notes. In the mouth, there’s a light biscuity malt and oodles of fruit, including apricot, peach, passionfruit, lemon and apricot. The hops are prominent but not overwhelming, with pleasant lingering grapefruit notes. Has a medium to full body and average carbonation. I really enjoyed this one. It probably just shades the Comet.

Bought at Systembolaget as part of the IPA is dead Single hop 4-pack. Amarillo really works as a single hop IPA. Yet another good Brewdog beer.

Davros (3338) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 14, 2014
Pours amber with a large, lasting head. Nose shows orange peel, floral hops, orange marmalade, spicy notes and a fair whack of sweet clean malt. Lots more orange marmalade as a flavour along with some pine and resinous hops. Lots of malt sweetness too followed by an assertive bitterness to round things out. Nice moderately high carbonation works well.

Keg at Brewdog, Edinburgh, Scotland. Cloudy orange body, grassy and floral aroma and taste up front, peppery spice on the tongue! Lovely!

minutemat (6232) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2013
Keg @ Brewdog, Shoreditch. Presents a luscious citrus bouquet on the nose. Quite a fresh, vibrant taste with peach, apricot and orange with a great bitterness.

Draft the Beer Temple Amsterdam. Väldigt frisk och fräsch. Inte så där jättemycket beska men vägs upp sv den härliga fruktigheten! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Christopsy (137) - SCOTLAND - MAR 5, 2014
Drank and reviewed 12March 2013 at BrewDog Glasgow. I find this to be very smooth and lacking the traditional bitterness of an IPA. Very pleasing to the pallat. BrewDog have extened their tradition of breaking the rules here.

beholder (86) - Poznań, POLAND - APR 23, 2014
Appearance: light amber, crystal clear with a medium sized and quickly dropping white head leaving average lacing.
Aroma: fresh citrus, tropical fruits, subtle notes of pine and resin.
Taste: sweet, with tropical fruit notes, some pine and some straw. Medium bitterness.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied, medium carbonation
Overall: this was the last one from this years IPA is Dead series, I had high expectations with this one and was not disappointed. It’s almost as good, or just as good as Comet. Overall 2014 edition of IPA is Dead is pretty awesome. You should try them all!
