BrewDog "Old World India Pale Ale"
BrewDog - Fraserburgh, Aberdeenshire, Scotland
IPA (ABV 7.5%)

[Best served in a Shaker glass]

Rating: 3.6/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 14/20

The pour was a clear medium copper with a large (2-3 finger) light tan frothy head that lasted for decent time before receding to a thin cap, which allowed for some fair spotty lacing.

The aroma was a little sweet with a toasted biscuit malt, floral hops and a light doughy yeast and had notes of caramel, citrus (orange peel) and a mild apricot sweetness.

The taste was bittersweet with a mild jolt of caramel early on and then progressed into a much bitterer taste with a mild dose of hops, citrus and had a slight alcohol presence. The flavor lasted a good long time letting the bittersweet hoppiness settle nicely on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was in between light and medium in body with a dry oily texture and a mild carbonation.

Overall a very refreshing and flavorful IPA, although as IPA's go this one was not typical. But as it says on the bottle” Recipe from a bygone era" when hops were used as preservatives in shipping beer far distances...
