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.

Bottle from I forget where. Pours a pretty deep golden clear color with a two finger creamy white head. Heavy malt and booze aroma with some citrus peel in there. I can tell this is going to be syrupy just smelling it. Flavor is a massive punch of pure booze, pine flavor, low bitter, sweet syrupy mess. Gross. Syrupy body with low carbonation and an astringent feeling all over my mouth. Why would anyone drink this more than once?

Molotov Cocktail pours a hazy bright golden color with a large lacing head. There is a big hoppy aroma, hints of earth. Big harsh hoppy taste, earthy tones, very warm finish. Good body, good flavor. Overall its very big bold and powerful.

Serving: 12 oz bottle poured into a Riedel Vinum Zinfandel glass.

Appearance: Bright, clear, lightly hazy amber orange. A small layer of whiten foam quickly recedes to a fringe with no lace.

Smell: Deeply resinous pine, citrus and spice along with honey and caramel sweetness.

Taste: Deep fruity sweetness: fresh tropical fruit from hops together with darker dried fruit from malt. Dank, resinous, herbal and bitter hops balance some of the huge maltiness.

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body, smooth and just starting to get sticky; medium carbonation.

Overall: Somewhere in between a strong DIPA and a super hoppy barleywine; doesn't hide its alcohol but still easy to sip.

If you enjoy the fruitier double IPAs, you're going to love this beer. Aromas are minimal, but honey like notes are found. Initial impression is soft and sweet, with pineapple or apricot like flavors. This is followed by a light hoppy bitter taste. What's unique about this imperial is a tingly aftertaste on the tongue that stays for an impressive amount of time after drinking. Overall a preferred imperial that I will have again.
