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.

This beer was a bit on the funky side for me. The 13% ABV caught me, so I gave it a go. The pour was nice and the coloring was nice. The smell was of subdued hops and sweet candy. The taste was very similar. It was hoppy but almost overly sweet and tasted of hops and sugar and like oak or a woodsy taste? The boozy taste comes through and the mouthfeel is a little sour and unpleasant. Not the best I have tried.

Tates like a candy Hopslam... plus sweet, minus bitter. Thinner with less carbonation. But the honey and hops profile are similar to Hopslam or even Rogue 7 Hop IPA. (Just more on the alcohol/syrupy side)

Just...a weird flavor. Really pungent and orange-y in a pretty good way, but these flavors are not very smooth. The description says "with natural flavors" and it's pretty obvious flavors are added. The alcohol is hidden well, so that's done really well. The flavors, however, are rather unnatural and stick in your throat. Imagine cheap orange drink (sugar, water, orange) with a DIPA kick. Just not quite right. Wish those flavors weren't added but I guess if you wanna price it at $4-5 a bottle that's what you gotta do.

Just go for DFH 120 if you get it regularly, it's much better. Mikkeller Big Bad series (Evil Twin's brother haha) was also much much better, if you happen to find them.

Served in a snifter.

Appearance: Pure gold color with an orange tint medium sediments in the body. White head riding to about 3/4" above the body.

Smell: Very hoppy scent, almost addicting. A little bit on the light side but the quality makes up for it.

Taste: Ultra citrus, seriously it's like biting into a grapefruit. Tastes much better with steak, this is the second time in having it and without food its super bitter...with food its citrus sweet. Pine notes and heavy malts, no caramel notes to it whatsoever. Not a bad thing but one of the characteristics I prefer with DIPA.

Mouth: very sticky, slightly finish.

Overall: Good brew, I would definitely recommend if you are searching for a good DIPA. There's a couple i personally would rather have...still worth buying. I actually can't wait to have the simcoe edition of this beer, maybe that's next. Salud!
