Tasting Notes: Punk IPA

RobR recommended Brewdog's Punk IPA so I grabbed a 4-bottle pack next time I saw it. First impressions - bitter. Second impressions - really bitter. Finish - OMG this is bitter. It's fantastic! If you like your beer bitter and hoppy and dry (and not at all gassy) this is a treat. In fact, I can't wait for the summer and for some really really hot weather because a bottle of Punk would be the perfect refreshing drink on such a day. But it goes down very nicely on a cool April evening too. Thanks for the heads-up Rob!

Brewdog have just bought out another even more bitter IPA called Hardcore IPA (http://www.brewdog.com/product.php?id=32).

A couple of days ago Hardcore won a Gold Medal at the World Beer Cup (Being a World event, it's American, of course) which is a huuuge achievement for a craft beer from a small UK brewery.

They don't sell it in supermarkets yet - the link above is the only way to buy it at the moment. I'm sorely tempted, esp as I get 20% discount on their stuff (I'm a shareholder), but the P&P will kill any discount :-(

This was a great beer, and I'm going to keep an eye out for it. The packaging is funky too.

I had a sip of this in a London pub yesterday and wished I'd ordered it. I've never seen it locally in pubs though, but I noticed they sell online. It's seriously delicious.
