Notes / Commercial Description:
Our scene-stealing flagship is an India Pale Ale that has become a byword for craft beer rebellion; synonymous with the insurgency against mass-produced, lowest common denominator beer. Punk IPA charges the barricades to fly its colours from the ramparts – full-on, full-flavour; at full-throttle. Layered with new world hops to create an explosion of tropical fruit and an all-out riot of grapefruit, pineapple and lychee before a spiky bitter finish, this is transatlantic fusion running at the fences of lost empires. Nothing will ever be the same again.

I was surprised I hadn't rated this one before, here goes...
L- Darker gold, veeery slight haze. Pours with say 3-4mm white head now heading to lacing / late ps, which holds well.
S- Simple to get the fruits from this, Seems like a combo of lychee + tangerine.
T- Hoppy on the front, balanced fruitiness follows. It is not a contemporarily fashionable 'hop bomb', it's balanced.
M- It is to the dryer side and refreshing.
O- Nice. When I see a craft type beer this days and the styles 'IPA/APA' and so on I fear hop-bombs, this isn't, it is somewhat over to the dryer side, but they've done a nice job and it's balanced. I'd certainly drink this agaain, nice work.

Bought from Waitrose in London at £6 for a 4-pack of 330ml cans. BB on bottom of can reads: '29/08/19 - REMIXED IN SCOTLAND'

DATE: September 13, 2018... OCCASION: having returned from our first middle school Back to School Night, time for some Office and a solid ale... GLASSWARE: Stoudts pint... the second Brewdog I had pours a light orange amber body, crystal clear with a steady stream of small white bubbles, which builds a two-fingered off-white head...that head unevenly forms waves around the glass and a hazy central smear... hard, well-toasted caramel weds with a nice underpinning of orange and lemon citrus... its lengthy list of hops blesses it with a heightened floral aroma.... an oily, smooth, lightly textured body that goes down as easily as its ABV suggests... this gets crunchier as it sips--but it never reaches a weight that halts the next sip... sweet, sharp hops create a fruity, punchy combination of grapefruit, mango, and lemon, with caramel dominating the profile.... a friendly pub ale that does has a flavor profile commensurate with its weight... not as overwhelming in its citrus as it claims to be on its can, though...
