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.

Poured a 12oz bottle into Bell's Tulip. Bottle dated 6/25/2013.

Pours a deep copper with a heavy, white head. Thick lacing lines the sides of the glass. Fresh bread, sweet tropical fruits, pine trees, and freshly squeezed citrus highlight the aromas. First off, for a 13% this hides the alcohol very well. The hop profile is heavy west coast. Pine, citrus, and tropical fruits overwhelm the palate. A small touch of alcohol mixed in the back end with sweet malts for a nice finish. Heavy carbonation with a thick mouthful bodes well with the high ABV. Overall a great offering from Evil Twin and great representation of the DIPA style. This one will get you buzzed up quick if you're not careful.

Wow, oh, wow.  Pours a gorgeous copper color with smells of massive pineapple and mango.  First sip blows my mind. 13%, are you sure?  No hint of alcohol.  The tropical fruits continue to hammer the palate, while a fruit sweetness comes in along with a touch of bitterness.  I wouldn’t say this is malt balanced, since the fruit flavors really stand out, but personally I can’t get enough of it.  Absolutely stellar beer, once I’ll always order when I see it.

Golden yellow color with some appreciable white head. Decent lacing. Super crazy grapefruit and estery fruitiness. Super grapefruit taste as well. Nice malt backbone to support the rediculous hop profile, but it comes off a bit boozey. Heavily carbonated and nice medium body too. Aftertaste is lightly bitter. This definitely grew on me over the last few bottles.

Appearance is a light copper with less than a finger of head. The nose is only slightly hoppy, but there is a profound blast of citrus fruit that accompanies the mild hops. The fruity sweetness continues into the flavor profile with a touch of hops poking through the sweetness on the finish. The consistency of this offering is thick and syrupy and the booziness is definitely present, but only mildly considering that it clocks in at 13%.

I suppose that this offering fits in the infamous “triple” IPA category along with 120 and Devil Dancer. Like those offerings, this beer is enjoyable in small doses. That said, I’ll take a good, honest hop bomb DIPA over this any day.
