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.

Tastes like lychee with some notes of pineapple, which is totally wrong. It is very acydic but not in the right way (the lambic way). It makes a bad pairing with a BrewDog burger in the BrewDog bar.

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.
