This fresh, full flavour natural beer is our tribute to the classic IPAs of yester-year. The post modern twist is the addition of amazing fruity hops giving an explosion of tropical fruit flavours and a sharp bitter finish.

[keg at Holyrood 9A, Edinburgh] The last couple of bottles of old Punk I had were incredibly biting, so much so that it really put me off. Trying the new version - on keg of course, rather than bottled - it was noticeably different. Gone is that bitter astingency at the back, instead there’s a softer fruit finish with a touch of sweetness. The bitterness is still there, but the whole thing feels a lot more balanced. I don’t think many people would notice the drop in strength - and I’ve yet to try the canned version - but the new keg Punk is without doubt much nicer [22022011]

330ml can. Pours a slightly hazy orange with a medium head. Aroma is piney hops and tropical fruits. Taste is some pineapple to start. Balanced with the malt. Strong bitter finish.

Pours a bit hazy yellow with a light, creamy head. Aroma is fruits and hops. Flavor is malts, fruits and strong hops in the finish. Great IPA.

Cask (handpump) at the Coronet, Holloway on 19 January 2011. I’d previously tried the prototype of "new" Punk (called Punk X at the time) and hadn’t been too impressed as it seemed a lot sweeter than the original. However, on this occasion it worked way better from cask. Excellent flowery and fruity aroma. Good drinker. Still felt a little softer and sweeter than the original but very tasty.

harrisoni (20055) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2011 Cask handpull at White Horse Parsons Green. Again a wonderful beer lineup at this pub, but I’m never sure about the condition of beers here. Gold beer with thin white head. Very attractive hoppy aroma. Light grapefruit and very enticing. The body was a bit thin, but again that could be just the condition of the beers at this pub. Finish is really quite short with some more hop, but it dies quite quickly. I’ll try it again hopefully in better condition and will then re-rate. Can at Bottle Shop Canterbury. Its a lot more floral hop on aroma which is so attractive as to be untrue. Decent in mouyh. Some bitterness on finish. Stupidly drinkable.

Clear golden with a huge froathing white head. Decent floral hop aroma with grapefruit and soap. High bitterness with a fresh mouthfeeel and a light caramel sweetness.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2011 Keg at The Bow Bar, Edinburgh. Pours a very hazy light amber with a soapy head. Herby and citrussy with notes of orange and melon. Strong carbonation almost threatens to ruin it, but it’s saved by a subtle lingering hoppy aftertaste. A personal favourite of mine - it’s nice to see BrewDog doing something that isn’t all-out aggressive.

imdownthepub (15938) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2011
Cask conditioned at The Southampton Arms, Kentish Town, London. Gold with slight white head. Thinnish in the body with an odd fruity note on the tongue, I thought Grenadine / Pomegranate, not to my taste unfortunately. i certainly preferred the original.

yespr (49904) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JAN 14, 2011
From tap at Cloisters as Punk X, 5.6%. Pours clear and golden orange with a small white head. Aroma is peachy and grapefruity. Mild mango touch. Fruity and crisp hoppy into a bitter yet crisp finish.
