On tap at The Local pub, Athens.
Apperance: Coppery golden colour with a nice white foam forming clouds in my beer!!! Foam didn't stay long, but formed little "holes" on the surface..
Smell: DAMM!!! This is good!!! My pint comes and the whole place just smells of citrus and lemon!!! It was all about citrus and lemon. And pineapple. But mostly citrus! Reminded me of Oakham Ales Citra in an extremelly high level!
Taste: Same as the aroma!! Extremelly bitter!!! GO HOPS!!!! I could bet my whole fortune they used Citra hops, which apparently they did not, as I found out! Thank BrewDog I didn't bet! Bitter aftertaste, dry finish, typical of a happy hoppy IPA, especially a strong and aggressive one!!
Mouthfeel: The ody was a little light with medium carbonation. I didn't expect a more full-bodied beer, but it may have been a little watery.. Excuse for a second try!!
Overall: An exceptional IPA on the extreme hoppy side, a must have for all sworn hopheads out there!!!

A 330ml bottle with a BB of June 2014. Acquired from Brewdog's online shop. The label describes it as a West Coast IPA.
Poured into a Duvel tulip. A golden-amber hue with faint chill haze and medium carbonation. Produces a large head of creamy white foam that lasts for a few minutes before subsiding to a patchy surface layer. Some lacing. Aroma of overwhelmingly fruity hops with notes of pine, grapefruit, orange peel, citrus, white grape and tropical fruits. Underpinned by subtle caramel malt, faint diacetyl and a hint of booze. Tasty!
Tastes of intense aromatic hops with an extreme bitter finish. Notes of pine resin, grapefruit, orange peel, citrus, white grape, mango, tropical fruits, mild caramel malt, faint earthy yeast and stewed hops. Highly attenuated, with an incredible bitterness upon swallowing. Hits you like a sucker punch! Mouthfeel is smooth, tingly and dry, with decent carbonation and body. Very astringent - dries the palate thoroughly. Aftertaste of stridently bitter aromatic hops.
Nice one - an imposingly hoppy brew from the folks at Brewdog. Looks good, while the aroma and flavour are all about the hops. Plenty of fruity/piny notes and bitterness, while the malt lurks discretely in the background. Body is OK, though could have been a shade more substantial for the style. All in all, a great showcase for the vigorous flavour that hops can deliver. If IPAs are your thing then give this beer a whirl.

Pours amber with a small head.
Very fruity aroma with passion fruit and peach characters. Also honey and cookie doughy-like malt. Nice.
Aggressive hoppy flavours. Tropical fruit and resinous hops leading to a sharp, bold bitterness. I'd like a bit more malt.

Picked this up at a great little beer store in Arlon, Miorge Mihoublon. Crystal clear copper-amber pour with pure white one finger head with decent retention and great lacing. Lots of piney hops and citrus in the nose along with hints of grapefruit, tangerine, and pineapple. The taste lives up to the West Coast IPA reference on the label. Bitter, resiny, piney hops dominate with a really nice perfumey, floral finish. Lots of citrus as well with hints of grapefruit, lemon, and orange zest. Great balance with some sweet caramel maltiness complementing the bitterness of the hops. The mouthfeel is light bodied with a super tangy, sweet, and bitter finish. Overall, this one took me by surprise a bit. Wasn't expecting it to be this good. Hopefully I can snag a few more of these babies! A really well done West Coast IPA from BrewDog!
