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.

Bought from Little's Wine and Liquor Store in Denver, CO. About 3.75 after taxes.

Bottled 06/25/13

A&S: Extremely sweet in the aroma. Not super complex and interesting. Hops are on the tropical side (pineapple, mango, grapefruit). Translucent ruby red colored beer. Head is a light tan and fades quickly.

T&M: One word to describe this beer would be intense. Citrus (lemon) and sugary sweetness are the main components of this beer. Right away I was like 13% this doesn't taste that intense, but almost before I could finish that thought it hit me like a 'wave of mutilation'. It legitimately kinda burnt on the way down and you can really feel the alcohol warming your stomach when it reaches it. Crisp and clean finish, not much lingers besides a sense of alcohol. Very smooth

Overall: I get the impression about this beer that they might having been trying to make something powerful more then delicious. Don't get me wrong it is well put together for trying that angle, but I felt that this beer is going for a bit of a shock value.

12 oz bottle from Pints O Plenty. It was about $4. Bottled 7/31/13, so reasonably fresh at five weeks.

Appearance: Orange- golden color with some hop haze. Off white head with short retention. Decent lacing and some legs too.

Smell: Tropical fruit and fresh flowers. Malty sweet, almost candy-like smells. Enough alcohol to tingle in the nose a little.

Taste: Sweet and fruity hops and a pretty hefty malt bill. A bit of caramel flavor to the malt, but not so much that this becomes like a barleywine. Big time bitterness both from the hops load and the significant alcohol. Long boozy finish, sweet and bitter.

Mouthfeel: Very full for an IPA, but it dries out fairly well and doesn't feel overly chewy.

Overall: Big surprise. I expected this to be a disappointment, but they pretty well hit their mark. Tasty, aromatic hops, and huge gravity. It works well. Definitely boozy, but its supposed to be. I'd get this again, and wouldnt hesitate if I saw it on draft.

P: Crystal clear burnt orange effervescent body. Topped with a creamy off white head that settles to a thick cap. Layered lacing.

S: Aggressive and powerful nose full of booze, bold spices and face slapping hops. Sweet toasted caramel malt, astringent alcohol, orange oil, lime, soap, pine resin, doughy yeast, and leather.

T/M: Spiced orange and lemon peel forward with toasted caramel and a aggressive sting of grain alcohol. Bready, resinous pine, melons and hints of honey. Warms the throat and chest on the way down. Black pepper and roasted chilies lurk in the background on the finish. Thick sticky body with just enough carbonation action to give a gentle tingle.

O: Put on your big boy pants and get ready for this explosion of palate destruction. Great exhibit of hops and strong alcohol. This would make a delicious winter IPA due to its warming sensation. This is a must try. Cheers!

an absolutely punishing adult beverage. pouring a red tinted burnt orange color and reeking of hop essences and alcohol, it is surprisingly high quality for its brutal strength. an aromatic profile of resinous hops, hardly bitter, caramelized almost, with strong fusel alcohols backing it up. a grain bill nondescript but large enough to not be washed away or too out of balance for such a brazen brew. good carbonation and a full as heck body, this is a beer completely intended to embarrass the drinker, which I do not support. it does however weed out the weenies, and this is a beer drinkers beer. a little more than anyone should want to chew off in a tulip, but a high quality (and gravity) brew that deserves to be in the conversation with some of the bolder india pales on the market. evil twin is hot to trot.

Serving type: on-tap
