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.
