Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: dgilks on 01-17-2013

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.

The moment you take the first whiff you get get slapped violently across the face with sweet pine notes supported by apricot nuances. On the mouth it brings massive amounts of pine balanced by some mango sweetness, softened by some yeasty breadiness and elevated by an assertive bitterness.

A: Slightly hazy orange. Foamy offwhite head sticks around a awhile.

S: Another beer you can smell from over a foot away. Good fruity and floral aroma with a bit of honey and citrus peels.

T: Big bright flavor up front initially balanced between bread and some floral and citrus, then kicked right out with a big drying bitter hop wallop of sap and orange and grapefruit peel. Makes you want more right away.

F: Medium smooth body with a big drying punch at the end

Overall a good beer. Just enough kick to satisfy, and with enough balance and freshness to be approachable.

This is amazing beer!! Punks from Scotland create a really perfect IPA!! I think IPA is the most popular beer style of craft beer, and this IPA is one of the best IPAs!!
