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 РMedium 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.

Hop Slam Wednesday

I’m pretty sure i’ll be heading over to Brewdog Camden for this one!
