BEER INFO

Brewed by:
BrewDog
Scotland, United Kingdom
brewdog.com

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.60%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Welcome to a post Punk apocalyptic mother of an ale.

A beer that spent its formative years Blitzkrieg Bopping around India and the sub-continent.

This light, golden classic has been subverted with new world hops to create a devastating explosion of flavour. Steel yourself for Kalashnikov bursts of caramel, incendiary tropical fruit and an all-out riot of grapefruit, pineapple and lychee, before a spiky bitter finish.

This is quintessential Empire with an anarchic twist. Turn up the volume. Pay the man. Embrace the punked up, pimped up Maharajah of Pale Ales.

Nothing will ever be the same again.

Being as this was bottled a year ago it was terrible. Lots of malt and faded hop flavors that reminded me of tea. Awful. Keep telling these kiddos to check the labels. One day they'll learn.

It's not even two months old but the hops seem to have disappated substantially. Tea leaf malt, pine, lemon, wateriness, bitter pine, resin, lupilin and bitterness.

Copper with a modest head that fades quite fast. Smell of resin and pineapple. Same flavours in the taste, together with grapefruit and grass. Refreshing mouth feel, but also a bit watery. I found the hop profile a bit weak in this IPA to be honest. I know this is Brewdog's flagship, but I personally prefer their Five AM and Dead Pony.

Aroma: Orange peel up front. As it warms a pithy orange juice sweetness emerges. Clean fermentation character.

Appearance: Very hazy pale amber pour with a low white head. Effervescence noted and assertive. Head retention is good.

Flavor: Firm earthy bitterness up front with moderate-high lemon notes. A bit of husky/grainy malt base. Very pithy citrus rind-like flavors. A bit of Pine-Sol note. Finish is bone dry. Aftertaste lingers with lemony bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with high carbonation and a slight carbonic bite. No warmth, astringency, or creaminess.

Overall impression: High carbonation impacts drinkability. Very citrusy and bitter. Kind of a one trick citrus pony. Probably no need to seek out again.
