BrewDog Elvis Juice American IPA at 6.5% ABV | 40 IBU (C$2.52 at Collective, 330 ml, best before 25-Jun-2019, acquired 11-Sep-2018, reviewed 17-Sep-2018)

Appearance: clear pale amber gold with one finger of fluffy pale ivory head diminishing rapidly to a thick persistent cap, spotty lacing. (4/5) Aroma: caramel, pithy grapefruit & mixed citrus flesh, tropical fruit, light pine. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-high bitter. (7/10) Medium slightly oily body, moderate carbonation, off-dry lingering bitter warming finish. (4/5)

I’m a bit puzzled by the relationship between a grapefruit-infused IPA brewed in Scotland, and Elvis (Presley or Costello, though I suppose the latter is geographically closer than the former), but I guess it’s getting increasingly hard to come up with cute names that haven’t been used yet, so whatever…  This is a bit malty for my preference, but it’s followed up by a decent citrus punch, finishing with a pleasantly emphatic bitter – and the price is certainly right. All in all, I could be convinced to pick up a few more of these for occasional consumption. (15/20)

7.5/10 #ryansbooze
