Fresh pineapple and other tropical fruit, plus pine notes.
Big, powerful hop presence, bringing bitter, tropical fruit and drying the palate.
Long and lasting – hoppy, bitter, dry and tangy.
A brave attempt to pack the extravagant hop character
found in strong American beers into a session bitter. It's an interesting idea, and certainly showcases the wonders of hops, but without the alcohol, body and sweetness of a true IPA, it's rather one-dimensional and doesn't quite hit the spot.

Like opening a hopsack and sticking your face in it – a herby, oily, citrus explosion. Will make any hophead weak at the knees.
As bitter and as drying as you'd expect after the nose. Perhaps not quite enough malty backbone.
Those powerful hop notes try to escape through the pores in your face. Leaves a powerful savoury bitterness in the mouth.
One the bitterness junkies will love. Quite a surprise at 3.5%. A great name too. In fact I suggest BrewDog bring out an entire Radiohead range. Suggest Subterranean Homesick Alien next.
