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.

Very small head that settles quickly to rim bubbles only. No lace. Orange amber color and hazy.

Very good blend of lightly toasted malt and floral hop. Definitive alcohol presence.

Big round malt start--lots of alcohol warmth. The comes quickly prior to the swallow. The aftertaste is spicy white pepper. Above average body and carbonation. A good finishing beer

12 oz bottle poured into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass.

A: a golden orange copper. Like a perfect scotch amber Ale. It is a beautiful sight but very pale compared to most double iPa`s.

S: serious orange candy coated hop bomb. It smells like like Avery Maharaja.

T: this is a sweeter version of Avery maharaja. Super sweet, candied orange peel. White sugar. Very much in the vein of dogfish 120 on draft.. Sickly sweet .... So much that I can't pin point a hop varietal but Simoce and maybe Centennial..
M : super Candy slick. Frothy Medium carbonation. Syrupy bliss.

O: this is a serious IPA sipper.. Powerful candy. I bought a 4 pack and will hold it for years.. Serious beer.. But a boozy hop bomb that really delivers is Founders devil Dancer

A: The beer is hazy orange in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that quickly died down, leaving a thin film of bubbles on the surface and a thick collar of large bubbles around the edge of the glass and some lacing down the sides.
S: Moderate aromas of pine resin hops are present in the nose along with notes of citrusy hops and hints of alcohol.
T: Like a Molotov Cocktail, the taste of this beer is a hop bomb that explodes into your mouth, packing an intense punch of pine resin hops and notes of citrusy hops, both of which contribute a moderate amount of bitterness. The hops dominate the overall taste of this beer and obscure the underlying malts, but you can tell this beer is strong by the notes of alcohol that are perceptible in the finish, which also has lingering notes of bitterness.
M: The feel of this beer somewhat resembles that of a barleywine as it is a little more than medium-bodied on the palate and has a bit of warming from the alcohol. I didn't notice any crispness from the hops.
O: If you really like IPAs, this is a nice beer to sip and savor on a chilly winter night. The alcohol is noticeable, but it is dangerously drinkable for a beer that comes in at 13%.

Bottled 10.15.13, enjoyed 11.20.13. Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a copper color with a cream head. Nice lacing. Smell is very boozey with a definite hop power, slightly sweet. First sip has a strong bite. Booziness is there to be sure, but not near as much as I expected from either the smell or the fact that it's 13%. Very very hop forward, strong citrus. Tart, but with a hint of sweetness that comes off as tropical and juicy, pineapple maybe. Also get a hint of burnt caramel with a lot of pine on the finish. Very nice mouthfeel. Leaves a tingle on the tongue that I love, kind of an after bite/sour hint. Overall, quite lovely. Would happily drink this one again!

It's abit scary when looking at the cold options in my house this is the lightest in colour and on a 35degree day like today the dark can wait,anyways she pours a hazed mandarin hue with a rather very creamy two finger head and lacing everywhere,the smell is strong piney hops,citrus and candy and just on smell you know it's going to be a massive hop bomb,the mouthfeel for me is borderlining on perfection it's full bodied with an above average carbonation and it tastes just like a hop punch with hints of strong pine,citrus and pineapple which is briefly interrupted with the slightest caramel candied malts and finished off with a pungent resinous piney bitterness and overall it's a massive beer that deserves respect cheers.
