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.

This beer is one assertive mother trucker. Poured into a pint glass it pops up a frothy two-finger head which settles to a white lasting cap that sticks to the side of the glass. Bubbles continue to rise to the top for the duration.
A unique orange-peach hue. Very pleasant hop aroma - not perfumy as some hoppy beers can be.
Intense hop character; yet sweet with a smokey backdrop. Not especially bitter as you may expect with a hoppy goddess such as this. Hint of citrus is there but not overbearing. Not sure where some reviewers get lemongrass or earth or these other notes but perhaps my palate is not as acute - no offense to those with refined palates of course.

Goes very well with pretzels and sharp cheddar. Despite it's ridiculously high ABV percentage, the alcohol is not heavy in the flavor. A very sneaky beer in that you don't realize it's potency until halfway through and your fingers begin to tingle. The name "Molotov Cocktail" is very apropos as it just firebombed it's way into my top five IPAs. Evil Twin has some seriously talented brewers.

Pours a bright copper color with good clarity and a white head that recedes to the snifter. The aroma has intense citrus hops as well as lemongrass, herb and pine. The flavor has a sugary malt foundation with notes of caramel and toffee, followed up by a satisfying bitterness and citrus hop character. A tasty treat, and the alcohol is detectable, but certainly not detracting. A great beer!

Great aromatic hop aroma, and surprisingly well masked alcohol presence given the ridiculously high ABV, but ultimately too sweet for my tastes. A very well concocted beer, but not entirely in proper balance (bitterness, sweetness, etc.) for me. However, the hop aroma is quite complex and blends nicely with scent of sweetness.

Perhaps this would be a better fit later in the season, as the weather gets cooler again. I'll have to try it again.
