Beer should not be this expensive but I guess i’m a sucker for pain.
Has an orange almost rose colour to it. Aromas are surprisingly beer like. It is actually good stuff showing hints of hops and a slightly malted profile. There is a weird funk in there as well. tastes like beer as well. has a real IPA character despite the weird metallic crunch and booze burns. This is much better than the Tactical.

330ml bottle split 6 ways. Foggy burnt amber pour with zero head. Nose of dog food and deeply resinous hops with some candy. Not nearly as hard on the nasal passages as the TNP. I don’t even know how to describe the taste of this stuff. It was resiny, very, very resiny with a big licorice kick and a sticky cough syrup finish. There’s no benchmark for evaluating things like this. Dazz3 (1799) - Hallsberg, SWEDEN - JUL 29, 2011
Luktar spritigt och lite träigt. Spritig, torr och lite träig i smaken. Väldigt spritig eftersmak. pekorte (6) - FINLAND - JUL 25, 2011 does not count
Tasted this at Tampere city. Surprisingly I didn’t get those IPA hops nor bitterness. It had of course lots of alcohol but because of the full body, heavy sweetness and caramel I thought it was quite well balanced.. If you can use that word in this content. Mouthfeel was quite thick and beer was flat, tasted sweet malt and licorice. Appearance was clear, no head and colored brown. Props for doing it over the top!

Unclear amber of color without a head. An aroma of alcohol, malt and hops. A flavor of citrus, hops, alcohol and citruspeel. 17thfloor (2444) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 12, 2011
Pours a wonderful looking rich amber with zero head. Big piney hop aroma with seemingly less of an abrasive alcohol punch than the tactical but more a refined whisky aroma. Flavor follows, this is how I remember my first devil dancer with the piney resiny hop punch, oxidation is nice, residual sweetness is nice and fitting, palatable, fairly spicy and tongue bruising, hop flavors are quite nice, excellent job here.

Bottle thanks to darkguardian. Whoa, now that’s a hoppy boozy freakin’ IPA. Are you for real, 41%??? WTF??? Aromas of booze and hops. The flavor follows suit. To be honest, it doesn’t taste like 41%, great job by Brewdog on this crazy IPA..... patrickfannon (1242) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 3, 2011
Bottle. 2 oz sample courtesy of my good buddy Simon. Thanks Seeemoone. Split with Simon, Vinnie, and Sean. Das Juden. Pours out scotchy brownish maroon witth abosluely no head, no lacing, and no carbonation. Aroma is incredibly dense and smooth, with warm boozy notes arising accompanied by peaty scotch, oak, tangy citrus fruits, apricots, peaches, and subtle notes of honey and mead. Medium bodied, surprisingly loose and roomy, enjoyably warm, spicy, and playful on the tongue. The palate is slightly sticky and chewy, but not as much as one would expect of a 41% quadruple IPA. The flavors are primarily centralized around the booze, with subtle whiskey, oaky, and citrusy notes swirling on the front of the tongue, while an intense, cinnamony heat pervades the incredibley hot finish. This beer was way, way better than I ever imgagined it could be. Fucking hats off to these crazy fuckers for making such a cool beer. Cheers/ Kavu (5130) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 30, 2011
Pours clear amber with no head. Aroma is extremely strong, with alcohol, some fruits and hops. Flavor is malts, fruits and lots of alcohol and hops. Also extremely strong. Surprisingly good. By far the most over the top IPA I’ve had.
