A beer of inherent contradiction. This heavy weight of the beer world is strikingly delicate with a white gold appearance. The light fruity aroma dominates the initial confrontation; lychee, kiwi and passionfruit all prevail with subtle nuances of cherry and strawberry. Don’t be fooled however by this smooth medium bodied ale. As it trickles down your throat as this wolf in sheep’s clothing begins to grow teeth. The bite comes as the bitterness builds and endures no matter how hard the malty sweetness of the alcohol tries to tame this ferocious beast.

Bottle. Pour was light golden with a white smooth head. Aroma was of tropical fruit and some slight oxidation. Flavor was very bitter, but in a pine tree sort of way. I loved the American bitterness imparted on this Scottish brew, but the bitterness was quite harsh, whereas many other IPAs I’ve had kept the smooth bitterness accompanying the nice malt characters. This could be a great beer if the bitterness could be much smoother.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2018 Pivo u flaši. Brewdog PUNK IPA 2017 Ovo je možda najveće razočaranje na koje sam zasada naišao u svijetu Craft pivarstva ! PUNK IPA je jedno od najlegendarnijih piva u svijetu Craft pivarstva. Nekoliko Craftera sa kojima sam razgovarao naveli su baš 'tu' pivu kao jedan od razloga ili čak glavni razlog što su se počeli baviti Craft pivarstvom. To je pivo fine arome tropskog voća i hmelja , krasnog isto takvog 'izbalansiranog' okusa sa ne previše gorčine i lagane slatkoće. Ovo šta sam pio na ljeto 2017 je za 30% slabijeg okusa od pive koju sam pio 2016. , i nisam jedini koji je to primijetio ! Jedva čekam sa prođe godina dana od toga pa da vidim da li su prošle godine imali lošu 'šaržu'. Inače ovo pivo za mene kad je u pravom izdanju ima ocjenu 3.8/5

Aroma, of caramel and tropical fruit, pours a hazy caramel color with a thin white head. Delicious taste of fruit and caramel, with a medium body and a light citrus finish.

Pours golden with a big head. Aroma of corn syrup, very lager like. Bit of a lager taste too. Disappointing.

UPDATED: AUG 13, 2017 Semplicemente una delle ipa migliori mai bevute. Punk IPA una garanzia (anche alla spina)

Bottle from brewdog online store, revival pack. It taste quite similar than the current punk ipa, but the new recepie had some improvements.. So let this one on the closet! Nice to have a chance to compare.

5/20 actually thought it was pretty bad, really lager and hops pretty disguised. Alright for a lager, doesn’t taste like an IPA to me
