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.

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.

330ml bottle served in a pint glass.

A: Pours a slightly hazy yellow colour forming a big, bubbled and creamy light yellow head. Medium retention and lots of chunky and soapy lacings left in the glass

S: Very fruity and flowery. Strong notes of pine. Definitely an American IPA. Very fruity. Tropical fruits: Oranges, grapefruit and pineapple. Pale sweet grains and grassy hops

T: Slightly sweet upfront. Strong notes of sweet pale malts, crystal malts, caramel malts. Very fruity! Again, strong notes of tropical fruits: Oranges, grapefruit and pineapple. Very piny too. In overall, a slightly sweet taste and a huge hops bitterness

M: Medium molasses body. Medium carbonation. Bittersweet aftertaste. Strong notes of pine

O: Great drinkability. Just another Brewdog masterpiece
