I don't disagree that there are better IIPAs, but this one made a very positive impression. I'll have another for sure.

Where Brew Dog really REALLY shines is in their Paradox series. Magnificent beers. Tough as hell to find states-side though.

Hmm. I thought their strong point was the animal carcass beer coozies.

I was prepared to be underwhelmed by HCIPA. I've only had two other Brew Dog beers - Dogma, and Paradox Isle of Arran. Dogma was palatable but kind of weird. The Paradox brew had a lot of promise, but it, too, suffered badly from undercarbonation. The aroma and flavor were really good, but I had a hard time enjoying it because of its poor mouthfeel.

I'll be honest, I wasn't sure either, but I got a Sink the Bismarck in the mail from Brew Dog and split it between myself and three other friends.

It was a fantastic experience. Intense apricot. Delicious.

Not an every day... or even every six month beer.... but it was great for a once in a while sort of thing.

The "real thing" was very badly under-carbonated as well, across all 3 bottles I had. That made it taste cloyingly sweet compared to my clone.

Yeah, that's right, mine's better. ;-)
Could it be possible a simple "lost in translation" event has occurred between U.S. and U.K. gallons. Might account for the colour difference as obviously if the Recipe hasn't been modified for U.S. publication then you are missing about a gallon (U.S.) of brewing water to start with. You could probably expect a more efficient mash from Brew-dog themselves also which might up the ABV a little and retain a lighter colour.

What were your O.G and F.G. figures?

Just a thought.
