BrewDog Hardcore IPA

13.5% Wine Bar
330ml (11.2 fl oz) bottle poured into a glass

I wrote the following: "BrewDog Hardcore IPA | 9.2% by volume | explicit imperial ale | product of scotland. | Batch 17. | 25-07-11 | 11.2 fl oz || Hazy orange brown. | The smell is AMAZING. | like apple or apricot. | Beautiful complex | tasteful hoppy taste | Lol at first when i was smell"

The funny thing when smelling the beer was I would sniff and after a long enough whiff I smelt this fiery sensation. I smelt the beer four times and each time the sensation was the same. I told the friend who invited me along to try smelling the beer. She was like, "Are you drunk already man?" Lol. Of course I wasn't, I only had one beer in me. But I was my usual crazy. I came to realize there was a candle at the center of the table, that I must have gotten a whiff of during my strong intakes of the beer's scent. ::slaps forehead:: In any case, this was a great beer.

This little bottle has a grandiloquent story to tell.
2,204 malted Maris Otter grains gave all they had to offer the world to provide the robustly delicate toffee malt canvas for the ensuing epic.
6 Hop Cones willingly sacrificed themselves in fiery cauldron that is our brew kettle to ensure your mouth is left feeling punished and puckering for more.
9,900,000,000 yeast cells frantically fermented their little hearts out as the sugars were magically turned into alcohol in the dark depths of our fermentation tanks.
This explicit ale has more hops and bitterness that any other beer brewed in the UK. This is an extreme beer rollercoaster for freaks, gypsies and international chess superstars.
