BREWDOG HARDCORE IPA

Brewdog Hardcore IPA. People rave on about Brewdog Punk IPA so I thought I’d try their Hardcore IPA which is an American Imperial IPA.

It’s brewed with a popular IPA base malt, Maris Otter, along with a bit of Crystal and Caramalt to add some complexity. On the hop front are Simcoe, Centennial and Columbus. It packs quite a punch being 9.2% ABV and 150 IBU.

Red/golden colour, fine frothy head which glistens with hop oils. Soft carbonation with small fine bubbles rising up the glass.  Sweet malt and resinous hop aroma with a full body.

Sweet caramel malt flavour, far too sweet, followed by piney and resinous aftertaste. This is one of the most sickly sweet IPA’s I’ve ever had.

There’s nothing hardcore about this IPA. It really should be called Bubblegum Pop IPA.

 

3/10
