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.

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!

Fantastic beer, if you didn't expect a 13% Imperial to smack you in the mouth you shouldn't have drank it.

Split a bottle with a friend while carousing at the Cafe Craft in North Charleston. Boy am I glad we shared. This one is not for the faint of heart! The aptly name Molitov Cocktail is an absolute explosion of hops. Aside from the oily coating on the surface of the beer, there is little to distinguish the appearance from many common American IPA's. The beer had a tangerine-amber color with a mildly hazy look. The aroma and flavor... that's a different story. A potent, pungent profile slaps you right in the face with hellacious hops. Sour and tart up front. Funky gym socks with pine cones drenched in sap. Citrus zest overload with grapefruit bitters. Surprisingly balanced due to a pine resin sweetness that imparts a maple/honey crisp character. There's some tropical taste in the finish, and a cloying sweetness that I can't shake. The body is big, bold and chewy. Surprisingly, the hop qualities and alchohol are not as overpowering to me as the unbridled sweetness. It's just so syrupy that I have a hard time sipping more than a tiny amount at a time. If you like your IPA's concentrated to the point of absurdity, this may be the beer for you. I'd be real curious to see how this would taste in a year or 2. In the mean time, let's keep all those bottles on the shelf.

A huge, harsh, boozy, massively hopped monster that's hard to drink.

This is a scary beer. While suspending a substantial amount of patricles it is surprisingly clear and deep orange amber. Mild carbonation. Spots and streaks of lace. Yellowish-whitw head of a couple of fingers surprisingly.

Smell is rich. Large slices of warm multigrain bread. Mangos and tropical fruit. Where's the booze? Oh, there it is... barely...Wait, Nope. None.

Taste is so big. Lots of tropical hops that flow into the malt. It's hard to tell where one ends and the other ends. Mango predominates but the big caramel sweetness is so well done that you start to wonder but the tight bitterness that follows moves it strongly to a dry and hoppy place. Sweet and chewy, cutting bitterness. Oils coating my mouth. No booze at all. Scary

Feel is slightly syrupy and smooth. Carbonation is just enough to enliven the swallow.

Wow, A real Kick A beer that while not a session ale is quite easy to sip frequently and often. Impressive.

A subtle but strong IPA. I'll compare it to Dogfish 120 simply for the alcohol content. Don't think it'll age as well though. Pretty drinkable, i would purchase again, but wouldn't consider it a must have.
