Oh my. Brewdog's Born To Die is, well, to die for. This sparkling gold beer hits you with gorgeous aromas of grapefruit, citrus fruits and fresh-cut grass. Taking a sip, however, sends you to another world (pretty sure it's heaven.) Complex notes of passionfruit, mango, candied oranges and lemongrass are complemented by a fantastic earthy bitterness with a bit of spice whilst a firm bitterness nicely lingers. A medium-light body and a dry finish give this IPA a very refreshing drinkability that is surprisingly restrained. But those are just words. All you need to know is that this. beer. is. fresh. 

This beer will be shipped from Tuesday 10th April.

    this beer is amazing, one of the if not the best beer I have ever had, if you like a good IPA you could be totally aroused by the mere smell of this beer (Posted on 23/04/2017)

    very nice beer, glad I got two of them but a bit pricey, is it worth the money, its a matter of opinion there are plenty of beers to try (Posted on 20/04/2017)

  4. Not Brewdog's best Review by Daniel
    Rating

    This was a decent drop to try but I feel like the gimmick of it's name and shelf-life will come to be remembered rather than it's quality. (Posted on 04/04/2017)

    Incredible beer, worth the price tag. And can't wait for them new brew up a new batch. Well done brewdog (Posted on 28/03/2017)

  6. Sweet hops Review by Dick Flassidy
    Rating

    Can't tell it's 8.5 %, had a few without even thinking of the abv. Slips down nicely, lovely hoppy taste and not too sweet. (Posted on 26/03/2017)

  7. Overrated? Review by Mark
    Rating

    It's a nice beer, but can't help but feel the marketing hype drives the price up by a couple of quid. Nice to try...but I can't say I'll be rushing to buy another. (Posted on 19/03/2017)

  8. Punk with a Kick Review by Flintshire Ian
    Rating

    Very unusually for a super strength beer, this was a joy to drink and reminded me of a supercharged Punk, miles away from the tramp soup taste that is traditionally associated with high strength beers.
    Not for the faint hearted and a mightily powerful but very pleasant offering from one of my favourite brewers. I bought enough to perhaps hold one or two back to see what they taste like in April. (Posted on 14/03/2017)

  9. Big beer! Review by Snozz
    Rating

    Pale gold with little head. Lots of pine and citrus (orange mostly) all through. Light malts. Bit more of a taste of booze than the old version. Initial sweetness leads to long dry bitter finish. (Posted on 12/03/2017)

  10. Not quite as good as I was expecting Review by Bobby Dazzler
    Rating

    The usual hoppy aroma you'd expect from Brewdog but I was slightly disappointed there wasn't as much flavour as I expected. You won't need too many of them though! (Posted on 12/03/2017)

  11. So delicious Review by Andrew
    Rating

    Every time I try this I'm blown away - then I check the ABV and can't believe it's so strong when the taste is so fresh.

    Hoppy, fruity, smooth... Perfect beer really, they really, really need to make more of this (Posted on 08/03/2017)

  12. Outstanding Review by S Stanbridge

    Remarkable from brewdog again. Beautiful hoppy and lovely citrus flavours. Big 660ml bottle and its needed because it's incredibly easy drinking for its strength. (Posted on 07/03/2017)

  13. Excellent and strong Review by Andy C
    Rating

    I love this beer. I'm glad I ordered 5 bottles. Big bottles too.

    It's gone up in strength but retains the bitter, piney, citrus flavours that hit the spot.

    I look forward to the next batch! (Posted on 05/03/2017)

    Loved the freshness and hop bitterness that you get I would say that I enjoyed previous born to die releases more, the percentage being upped to 9.5% hasn't really made it any better in my eyes but it's still a great beer (Posted on 23/02/2017)

  19. AMPED UP Review by Biz
    Rating

    This years Born to Die is amped up heaven. Tastes as good as always but Brewdog moved it from 8.5% to 9.5% full of hoppy bitterness. Buy it before it sells out. (Posted on 14/02/2017)

    Deep golden with whiteish head. Aroma has pungent hops, pineapple, mango, catty notes and caramel. Taste is similar, sweet and hoppy, mango, pineapple and other fruits, plus some grass and light pine. Good stuff.. (Posted on 04/12/2016)

  23. Nice but tasted better Review by Pjherts
    Rating

    I loved the build up and hype around this beer but it slightly disappointed. It was very dry and crisp but felt it needed a little more depth. Almost fizzed off the tongue (Posted on 25/11/2016)

  24. Good...but nothing extraordinary Review by Mark
    Rating

    As many of the reviews have pointed out, this is a very hoppy beer. However, whilst other 'hoppy beers' are hoppy to the point of tasting a little bitter, Born To Die avoids this well - you'll instantly pick up on all it's hoppyness, but rather than overpower it, it actually flavours the beer well.

    However, there is a little bit of marketing-hype going on here in my opinion. The addition of a 'best before' date on the bottle creates the illusion of something very special - a special, limited edition beer.

    It's good, but I've drank others which taste equally as good and at less cost. (Posted on 14/11/2016)

  25. Delicious fresh ipa Review by MattO75
    Rating

    Drink as fresh as you can for the best possible experience. One of the top IPAs available. Tastes like a session ipa but beware the high abv (Posted on 10/11/2016)

  26. Superfunk Review by Pinchy
    Rating

    It's a big bottle, with sediment, so you'd better have a big glass. Excellent beer. Nose wise I got something funky, though I did get the last bottle. Taste is great, big hoppy IPA. Super strength at 8.5 which makes it very dry and somewhat sticky, in a good way. (Posted on 09/11/2016)

  27. The best brewdog. Review by ASmithy

    Ive tried almost all brewdogs and this is my all time favourite, strong percentage beer but tastes very smooth with a lovely after taste. A must have! (Posted on 29/10/2016)

  28. A symphony of tastes on your tongue Review by roverj75

    Extremely happy IPA with a very Punk taste to it. Just explodes on your tongue and keeps on giving. It's citrus and mango flavours are a delight. Last bottle to be drunk tonight. Can't wait for next release (Posted on 28/10/2016)

  30. Amazing - Get One! Review by simontomlinson
    Rating

    Near white frothy head sat on a hazy light golden body with traces of yeast floating about - unusual for Brewdog.
    Bitter sweet grapefruit & sweet citrus & mango.
    Very sharp on the tongue, prickly on the back.
    Citrus flavors of bitter rind, pith grapefruit, lemon, zest but a sametime this has a lovely sweet backbone to it.

  31. Hoppy I bought these Review by Abdyman
    Rating

    A great, fresh, hoppy beer. Loved it. Although as it's strong, comes in big bottles and has a short shelf life it's like brew dog are trying to make me drink more than I should! (Posted on 20/10/2016)

  32. Outstanding Review by Andrew
    Rating

    Fresh, juicy and so tasty...

    Tropical fruits, easy drinking and with a bitterness that is not over the top this is the best thing I've had from Brewdog and probably joint top of the beers I've had this year between that and the almost identical "original" Magic Rock Inhaler (note - not the current one which is sadly not a patch on the first batch).

    ... And to those thinking of aging this I urge you not to. Having tried to stash some of the aforementioned and extremely similar Inhaler I came back to it only two months after purchase and found it was incredibly bitter, lost all its fruits and amazing taste... In fact it was undrinkable... Please don't do that to this amazing beer. (Posted on 10/10/2016)

  33. Supreme! Review by BeerSnob76
    Rating

    This is 04.11.16 Born to Die is the second batch I have had, my first was the August 2016 version (which I reviewed).

    This time I actually think I was more blown away than my first experience. This could be the most tasty and most clever beer on the planet.

    It smells amazing, so much so I would give five stars just for that one experience, however to be able to taste it completes this heavenly joy of a beer.

  34. Good, but not Great Review by &Y
    Rating

    Don't get me wrong, this is a wonderful beer, but was expecting more of a fresh hop flavour, with big aroma, but, well, it just didn't "pop" as I thought it would.

    After taste was a little grassy/acidic, but great colour and body.

    Definitely give it a try (especially with the extra discount from Beer Hawk!). I ordered 2 bottles, so might even wait until after it "Dies" as i've got a hunch this one "might' get better with age... (Posted on 01/10/2016)

  35. Hoppy citrusy loveliness Review by MattO75
    Rating

    Brewdog release these two or three times per year with a very short date to encourage them to be drunk as fresh as possible. It may look expensive but the bottle is large enough to share (should you want to - I wouldn't). A great IPA with everything you could want - citrus, bitter, hoppy. Lovely (Posted on 30/09/2016)

  40. To Die For... Review by Scott
    Rating

    Stunning, super fresh and superbly balanced between hoppy, sweet and bitter were my my first and second bottles. I had my third bottle yesterday a couple of weeks on and I can already taste the change with more bitterness but still incredibly moreish and quaffable for a high ABV.

    Two bottles to go...one will DIE! (Posted on 08/08/2016)

  43. Bar set too high? Review by Mick
    Rating

    My 2nd batch of this delightful beer. Maybe its just me but after having some last year this brew did not live up to my expectations. It was still a great drink but the 1st hit wasn't so eye-bulgingly hoppy and not such a lingering finish.
    I still loved it and will order again when available. Perhaps it is one of those things that I tend to do - build it up in my mind for 6 months then when it does arrive it does not live up to my exaggerated expectation. (Posted on 05/08/2016)

    This was my second bottle of this as I purchased the April edition. I have to say I found this version slightly underwhelming when compared to the earlier batch.

    Not as bitter as before and less of a fruit kick from the hops.

    After thoroughly enjoying Brewdog's last 'Born To Die' beer, my expectations were high. But this brew surpassed them on every level!

    Rating

    This one lives up to the expectations - a full on hop assault in both aroma and flavour. Doesn't taste like an 8.5% beer as it's so drinkable. The large bottles are great for sharing. Definitely one to try if you're a hop head! (Posted on 17/07/2016)

    Very powerful tasting IPA that does feel its strength, but that is by no means a bad thing!

    Wow, this is one hopped up and super dry IPA, the driest IPA I have had.

    Served at 7 degrees in two glasses you get so much!

    Initially the smell for me was super piney and a almost new rubber smell followed by fruit

    Tasting goes into a malt the super dry bitter taste that in mouth was like popping candy but tart and dry.

  88. A eulogy Review by Llamaman
    Rating

    We are gathered to mark the passing of this spring's 'Born To Die'.
    She was delivered to much celebration (and overbearing hype) yesterday, but I had to leave her overnight to settle down from her travels.
    Blonde she was, golden as a cornfield on a summers day, yet she had bite in her. By Jove, she had bite. Grapefruit tartness, tropical fruitiness and a resinous hoppiness overwhelmed all who met her.
    She wore a thin bandana of lace and had a very dry sense of humour. It is this dryness that lingers long in the memory. Dry like the Gobi desert, or the form of a Crystal Palace striker (like the beer, I'm bitter).

    She was built to be shared, but being a conservative fellow, I kept her all to myself. She was immensely strong (she could lift 5 navvies on the end of a shovel) so I'm now a little worse for wear. Adieu.

    Ed: She leaves an empty bottle, crammed with self-aggrandisement (calling yourself 'awesome' on the label? Seriously?) (Posted on 12/04/2016)
