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.

Good taste, surprisingly sweet for a DIPA. Very little lacing on the glass. Could be because the keg changed over.

This was part of a blind tasting of 8 different IPAs and double IPAs. The other "big" ones that were included were Hopslam and Double Crooked Tree. Both my friend and I liked this better than the other two more highly acclaimed big IPAs. We were stunned when we saw that Molotov Cocktail was our favorite out of the high abv IIPAs.

What I liked about it was the taste was nice and hoppy and not overly malty as some other huge imperial IPAs tend to be.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into La Chouffe tulip glass. 169:14 is printed at the bottom of the neck of the bottle so I assume that bottle date is the 169th date of 2014 which happens to be 18 June 2014.

A: It poured a nice orangey gold colour with less than one finger head which receded quite quickly leaving some lace on the glass.
S: Sweet malts with some light citrus and orange coming through.
T: Sweet. Too sweet. Like lightly carbonated orange cordial, some honey and maybe bubblegum. One thing going for it is that even at 13%, you don’t notice the alcohol at all. Some of the hoppiness does creep through the sweetness at times but not much.
M: Sticky, full bodied, light carbonation.
O: Now around 9 months from date of bottling, maybe some hoppiness was lost? But this was way too overly sweet for me. At first I thought that maybe I could enjoy half a bottle every so often, but the more and longer I think about it, I really couldn’t. Way too sweet.

Holy hops! Loaded with 'em. Smells awesome. Taste is as expected considering the ABV. It's a little on the sweet side so the desired bitterness is consumed by the overpowering sweetness. This is a great beer but best enjoyed in small doses.

This DIPA poured hazy orange with not much of a head at all, smelled of sweet malts and subdued hops. Full bodied with a good amount of floral hops on the tongue but also came with an unpleasant amount of sweetness, too sweet to my liking. At a big ABV of 13%, labelled as a beer that will wow you, I had high expectations of this DIPA, it was still a decent beer but I have to say that I was a bit disappointed with it. The freshness might have been a factor but the bottled date was not found.
