Brewdog IPA

Wow has it been that long since the last post? Going on 20 months!! Rest assured I’ve been drinking beer haha….

A few weeks ago my family went away on a holiday for my bday and bought me heeeeaaaaapppsss of rad imported beer – this is the first of many to be reviewed! And not the best one to start on for a night of beer reviewing haha (I’m pretty sauced already – Hardcore IPA weighs in at a hefty 9.2%!). My mate Tim has been singing the praises of Brewdogs for years now and I now know why. This is a solid beer. It has a nice chewiness to it and a great transition from the first thick mouthful to the straight-up hop after taste. The colour is great and it pours well. I didn’t find it overly hoppy as some other self-proclaimed “hardcore” IPAs might, actually I quite enjoyed the balance. I’m not sure how one would improve on it – I think it did what it came to do – but I feel like I need to reserve my 5 star rating for that special someone…

Rating: ★★★★☆ 

Actually scratch that beer reviewing night of mine. I’m tanked.
