BrewDog Punk IPA

Thursday night and need something to put me in the mood for Question Time and This Week later. In a recent newspaper review, I covered BrewDog Punk IPA and it left me with a bit of a taste for this fantastic beer. Golden coloured with amazing aromas of grapefruit and pineapple. It's one of the most bitter beers I have ever tried and this hop attack in a bottle swoops like a Tsunami of bitterness over the tongue, leaving the tastebuds numbed and dry. Aged cheese goes well with this beer, some Hafod Organic from Lampeter matches well. At 6% this is not a session beer, though the Brew Wales Editor has been known to call Fullers ESB and Otley O8 session beers! Fido from the Lone Voice was present at the O8 session when the resignation of a Government Minister, Pitch Ripper Hain, was celebrated. Anyway, back to the beer, Punk IPA is available in 330ml bottles in Sainsbury's and Tesco's in Wales and is recommended if you like hoppy beers. If you don't then the brewers tell you on the bottle to "Go back to drinking your mass marketed, bland, cheaply made watered down lager and close the door behind you!"

An excellent beer, and one that makes its intentions very clear - easy-drinking it is not.

Currently available in Tesco at £4 for 4x330ml bottles.
