First some background... I just joined the forums, waiting for my 30 days so I can start trading. I'm from Chicago, and was there at the launch for Goose Island Imperial IPA waaaaaay back in the day. I remember being the only hophead in attendance, and confronting the brewmaster and saying "Do you have any idea how amazing this is?" To this day it is one of the greatest double (triple? it was over 15% abv) IPAs of all time. I remember tasting back to back with DFH 120, and Imperial won by a hair. When Goose did the first BCS, I remember buying all I could. Amazing beer. Those two brews set the bar for every big Stout and IPA to follow. When Brewdog came on the scene, years ago, I followed with interest the battle of the highest abv. I'm a huge Utopias fan (have a few verticals including Millennium) and I love extreme beers (no one seems to dig DuClaw Colossus and Sonoran 200 like I do, which is as shame because if you like Utopias these are a must-try). So naturally I found bottles of Tactical Nuclear Penguin and Sink the Bismark. Penguin underwhelmed me in the taste department, though I respected the effort. Bismark I adored. It's like drinking hop oil. So I began seeking out more Brewdog beers, then discovered their website and started buying from them directly. Which brings me to the topic of this thread. I just tried two new Brewdog beers. Anarchist Alchemist (a 15% triple IPA) and a Paradox Grain (14% stout). They were wonderful. The AA was like a toned down version of Bismark. Same flavor profile, but drinkable (I can only handle an eyedropper sip of Bismark at a time). Truly one of the best IPAs I've every had. Incredible hop profile with surprisingly little cloy and heat. Where'd they hide the alcohol bite? It's amazing. The Paradox was everything a whiskey barrel aged stout should be. Woody, whiskey, dry, but no heat at all. So my buddy and I compared these against a '12 BCS and a '12 Dogfish 120, two of out faves. The Brewdog brews held their own. Kudos to those crazy Scottish punks at Brewdog for making beer as great as the best of the best. Also picked up Jackhammer, Paradox (various varieties), Tokyo, and Chaos Theory, all great beers. The shipping is insanely expensive. And it'll take a few weeks to arrive. But it's worth every penny. Has anyone else tried these? Thoughts?
