Welcome to the Drink in the Sights Elvis Juice from Brewdog Beer Review. Ah good old Brewdog and their weird creations... Elvis Juice is a Grapefruit infused IPA with a kick. At 6.5% this is a beer not to be messed with despite its far from potent taste. If you read my reviews a lot you'll know I like Brewdog, I like that they try new things, I like that they are a bit different, and I like some of their beers, and I hate others. This is certainly a weird one, which I guess makes it quintessentially Brewdog. It's not the only grapefruit beer on the market, I know this because I googled grapefruit beers and a few came up, but I'm pretty sure it's the most readily available, and most well known. But is it any good?
Just for clarity sake I went for the 330 bottle, but you can also get this in can form, but why would you? Bottles are always better. The head is close to none existent and the colour is verging on orange. The smell not surprisingly consists of grapefruit and a little more grapefruit for good measure. This concerned me. I'm not a huge fan of really fruity beers, and the smell of this one was nearly enough to have me running to the hills, but I bought this as something different to write about on here so I wasn't going to be put off by the smell.
Elvis Juice from Brewdog Beer Review Conclusion
The taste of grapefruit isn't actually completely overpowering, which is good, it means you can still tell you're drinking an actual beer, not a very runny smoothie. Don't get me wrong grapefruit is still the overriding taste, but there's a bit of bitterness, and some malts in there. It certainly doesn't taste like a 6.5% beer though so be careful. It may sound pretty obvious but if you really like grapefruit you'll really like this beer, if like me you can take it or leave grapefruits you'll be left going well it did exactly what it said on the tin so I can't be mad at it. It's not a great beer, and I wont have it again unless I'm real short on options, but I can't be too harsh on something that's exactly what it says it is. 6/10. Thus ends my Brewdog Elvis Juice beer review.
