Brew Dog Hardcore IPA

ABV: 9.2%
OG: 1083
IBU's: 150

Brew dog is located on the north sea, north of Glasgow in Scotland, and they brew beers for the dedicated drinker, AVB's ranging up to 41%. They are "proud to be an intrepid David in a desperate ocean of insipid Goliaths."

Had the pleasure over lunch today to taste their Hardcore IPA

"An Imperial India Pale Ale jam packed with our favourite hops. This explicit ale has more hops and bitterness than any other beer brewed in the UK. This is an extreme beer rollercoaster for freaks, gypsies and international chess superstars."

It appeared almost orange in the glass, translucent, some particles, with a small amount of head lingering after the pour.

It was a hoppy fruity flavour, little citrus, not overdone, but strong. Flavour lasting on the tongue of fruits and alcohol, slight chemical towards the back. Overall impressions was slightly above neutral, a beer to drink again, but not for a whole night. I would suggest this for a night of BBQ, and it would go well with a grilled rack of ribs.
