Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
The devastatingly bitter finish will drill straight through your taste buds. If you like hops and bitterness then go ahead. But be warned: this beer has more bitterness than a human palate (or nipple) can detect. For freaks, craft beer junkies and stamp collectors only.

The second placed beer in our 2012 Prototype Challenge is a BrewDog staff favourite, and made a brief guest appearance in our bars last summer.

A: Very light orange, a tad hazy with sediment, slow rising micro carbonation.
S: Light, sweet and citrusy
T: Really nice. Yes, more like an american IPA, but I feel like there are some European hops in here, giving it a grassy flavor i associate with certain German beers. But still, unique and very tasty.
M: Smooth
O: A very lovely attempt at an AIPA. Not what you'd find on the west coast, but certainly special in it's own positive way.

Hazy orange pour, with sediments, little foam that disappears relatively quickly. Citrus smell (strong grapefruit), and pineapple. Huge hop taste, very bitter, grapefruit and hints of peach and pineapple. Salty and quite bitter after-taste.

Excellent ale, I tried half a pint of this beauty at the Leeds Beer Festival in September 2014 and I loved every second of it. Think of this as Brewdogs famous Punk IPA on steroids.
