BrewDog – IPA is Dead, HBC

Hmmm, I fancied a nice IPA tonight so i’m breaking out another one of the BrewDog IPA is Dead beers.  This time it’s the North American hop, HBC.

Aroma – Soft pine/resin and slight hints of citrus and malt.

Appearance – Much like the Challenger, golden orange in colour and slightly hazy. Nice white head formation.

Flavour – Pine and resin matching the aroma, but followed up with a complex fruity character.

Mouthfeel – Medium body and carbonation.  Smooth drinking with a great dry finish.

Overall – Much nicer than the Challenger, it’s a more balanced and rounded beer, and a good showcase for the HBC hops.

Would I buy more? – I could quite happily drink this one again, it’s not the best IPA i’ve ever had, but it is nice.
