Punk IPAPunk IPA
BEER INFO

Brewed by:
BrewDog
Scotland, United Kingdom

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.

45 IBU

Pours a lazy golden orange and leaves the same colored body with a one finger white foamy head that rises a bit but then allows some leverage to level at a nice pace; moderate sticky lacing clings to the glass; the aroma has sweet citrus up front, some light malts enter in the background; the flavoring is sticky sweet and leaves a citrusy residue all around, sweet citrusy aftertaste, dry finish; its mostly easy on the palate, somewhat sessionable, carbonation - what carbonation - there is nothing smoother than this AIPA - no where close to the normal harshness of an AIPA, but honestly not bad, like I already said just plain weird to me; overall I like it for the most part - it just seems fairly different than most AIPA’s.
