Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Wow. This is an IPA perfect for me, and blows away the 4 ipas I had last nite and just about every IPA I've ever had. This ranks with fresh Hop 15 and Brew Dog's Hard Core as the best ipas I've had. Was intrigued by the description, had to go try it, soon as I tasted, ordered my 32 oz growler. And now that I'm halfway in, I know this is a world class beer.

Perfect color, tons of bubbles, the first pour in my sniffer clear and bubbly, subsequent pours thicker and opaque. Smells and tastes of huge dank hops, pine and citrus, huge bitterness envelops every part of your palate, leaving you dry, bitter, and thirsting for more. The amount of hops in this beer is insane, so freaking good it's unbelievable. Booze? Yea its boozy, just the way I like it.

This is why we drink beer, immediately leaps to my best of list. It's not for everyone, but its certainly for me. Outstanding.

12 oz. bottle, with bottled on date 04/18/2014 printed on the bottleneck. Another new big beer to me from Evil Twin, this one a 13.00% abv DIPA. The label calls this beer one of the craziest beers made by Evil Twin, so we'll see what that's all about.

Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

A - It pours a bright murky golden orange colored body with one finger of frothy off-white head. Big chunks of sediment floating in the glass. Noticeable carbonation rushing topside from the etching at the bottom of the glass. Yeah, I'd say this one looks pretty damn nice. 4

S - The aroma is, as expected, a big bitter hop bomb - piney, orange marmalade, horseradish, herbal / tea leafy, with a good dose of sweetened caramel malt in there also. 3.5

T - Taste follows the nose - big & bitter, citrusy & juicy. Herbal & sweet with a leafy tea sort of taste going on in there. Fairly balanced with good caramel malt presence.

M - The feel is smooth and clean, especially for such a high abv beer. Not as ridiculously bitter and dry on the finish as I'd anticipated. Sticky, sugary, and malty. Lower carbonation than usual. Easy to drink for the 13.00% abv.

Overall, a nice strong DIPA from Evil Twin. Not the greatest that I've had, but it has enough going on to keep things interesting. Recommended.

I have braced myself for this one.Pours into a small tulip glass a clear burnt orange tinged golden with a tight formed one finger slightly off white head that sticks like glue to the glass,surprisingly alot of carbonation for a beer this big.Powdered sugar and oily hops in the nose,it just smells menacing,I pick up some faint nuttiness but no alcohol as it warms which is surprising.The alcohol wich was so well hidden in the aromas rears its big head on the palate,sweet fusel alcohol intertwined with citric hops is in your face,there is more caramel-like sweetness but the alcohol sweetness is king.It can barely be called a DIPA but I do like it,it's strong and sweet but the flavors meld well.Be careful here,it's big and in your face.

12 oz bottle, bottled on 7/31/13. Pours golden amber with a medium creamy off-white head that retains well and leaves some lacing.

The aroma is sweet caramel malts, tropical fruits and alcohol.

The flavor is heavily sweet and sugary fruity malts with big bitterness in the finish (that doesn't really dry out the cloying sweetness) and quite a bit of harsh alcohol. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation.

Overall, a bit of a mess, cloyingly sweet with some bitterness and a ton of alcohol. Reminds me of DFH 120 minute IPA.

Golden yellow color with some appreciable white head. Decent lacing. Super crazy grapefruit and estery fruitiness. Super grapefruit taste as well. Nice malt backbone to support the rediculous hop profile, but it comes off a bit boozey. Heavily carbonated and nice medium body too. Aftertaste is lightly bitter. This definitely grew on me over the last few bottles.
