An IPA a Day #7

Right then End of week one and since we had a Brewdog launch at the bar last night, which by the way, I hope you all enjoyed, it's time we went to Scotland as part of our lead up to International IPA day.
This is Punk IPA, it's an agressive beer.....well not so much any more.
A Nano Keg
You might say that the old recipe Punk was better, I'd have to disagree. Personally, I think the old recipe had got a bit flabby, had one too many drug cocktails, was writing the same old stuff, it seemed to me that Punk IPA was yesterdays news.
Shortly after the launch of the new recipe came the launch of the Punk Nano kegs...sorry cans for those of you old enough to remember them.
Nano Kegs is for all you 21st century blogger geeks.
The new recipe may be less aggressive but it's also far more drinkable. At 5.6% abv is slightly less alcoholic. There are hints of tropical fruits such as Pineapple and Mango on the nose and the palate but still enough bitterness(45 IBUs) at the finish so as not to make it a big girls blouse of a beer.

Thats a picture of the concept can, hence why it has 6% on the side.
