Brew Dog Punk IPA

Today we have some beer from a brewery I have wanted sample for some time. Brew Dog from Fraserburgh, Scotland produces unique, craft brews out of the UK and doesn’t care if you drink piss beer and don’t appreciate their brew, or their beer labels, which have produced some astoundingly absurd controversy that makes it easy to loose a little more faith in humanity and how those in power want to “protect” us. On to the important stuff. Punk IPA pours a surprisingly light orange yellow color, producing less than a half inch of white head that dissipates rapidly. Aroma is full of citrus and floral hops, grapefruit and orange are identifiable as well as a slight bitter alcohol scent that reminds me a bit of wine. The flavor of this ale is very intriguing. Citrus hits the tongue first followed up by a light but surprisingly dominate bitter kick. Some of the light flavors in this ale throw me off a bit because it is not what you get in a typical American IPA, but from what I have learned this seems to be typical of brews from the UK. The bottle states “Post modern classic pale ale” and I must say it’s a pretty straight on description. The body of this beer is very light for an IPA and the mouthfeel is rather clean. If you like a hoppy ale that is big on citrus and aren’t afraid of some bitter accents this would be a dandy choice. I wish Brew Dog the best in their struggles against Alcohol Focus Scotland and the Portman Group as well as any other regulatory bodies they may have to deal with in the future. Give it a shot and ride your bike.
