Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: bark on 08-29-2011

Did you like Before, During, & After Christmas? Maybe you thought it poured brilliantly, and you loved of the arrogant amounts of hops wowed you. This beer will knock your tongue off, essentially due to the obscene amount of hops that went down this explosive fella. It’s a tour de force in hoppiness and by far the craziest beer made by Evil Twin… but not the last.

Brewed at Fanø Bryghus.

Hazy golden with thinnish white head that mostly fades but not completely.

Smells boozy, but with some citrusy hops poking through. Despite the lack of complexity, it is rich and bold.

Sweet but without the caramel flavor, medium bitterness across the middle, fairly sharp citrus flavor, and some more almost cloying sweetness on the backend.

Adequately carbonated, rich full body. viscous, with a bit of lingering bitterness after the finish.

Not that it matters, but I'd call this a really hoppy barleywine before I'd call it any kind of IPA. At that 13%, and as sweet as it is, you should go into this with the attitude of sipping on a barleywine rather than an IPA. In my view. …It's good, I like it. Pretty sweet though, just so you know.

Way too sweet. Tastes like bubble gum.

Appearance: Yellow-gold and hazy, lots of particles in suspension, good head.

Smell: Boozy, then a lemony/citrus aroma.

Taste: Mandarin oranges, sweet, then a slightly metallic orange rind flavor, not super bitter, slick feel.

Overall: Picked up a single to try this triple IPA, it had an interesting flavor where the dry rind tasted almost metallic. Very orange-y. I might have to try another one side by side with another high abv DIPA like Devil Dancer or Double Crooked Tree.

12oz bottle poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass. Pours a golden orange color. Quickly dissipating two finger head. A lot of
floating sentiment--I initially thought my glass must have been dirty. Thick feel; beer sticks to the mouth. Hop flavor gives way to a sweet aftertaste. Can sense the alcohol, but at 13% that's to be expected. I really enjoyed it. I had it before dinner after a winter afternoon of throwing the football with my son. It certainly helped me warm up. Definitely a beer best to end your session with; it will be hard to follow this up. (8.5)

Snifter at Burnhearts.

Overall, a pretty good imperial IPA. The high ABV is well hidden. A little too much of a slick aftertaste, but a really nice beer.

A 12oz bottle with a bottled on date of 6.25.13. No fears - I bet this one ages well

L - Bronze with rich texture, no clarity, and sediment floating through out. 1 full finger of head and some sticky lace left on the glass. IPA's don't get better looking than this one!

S - Extreme dank hops and ...BOOZE! Wow.

T - A hop bomb in the purest sense. Lots of booze, but goes down easy. Sweet, but not overly, and a good combination of citrus and pine hops. Freakin GOOD!

F - Oily, slick, full bodied.

O - This one is definitely flammable. Tasty as hell. Wow. Get it if you find it!
