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.

On tap at Atomic Liquors in Downtown Las Vegas, Nevada.

A solid malt backbone with sweet tropical fruit up front. The hoppy bitterness kicks in on the finish. 13% ABV is deceptive. Very good.

Copper in color with no head or lacing.

Smell is piney, grapefruit, lemon, and a bit of earth.

Taste is a mix of sweet and bitter with a hoppy finish. Citrus, caramel, malt, and pine dominate.

Mouthful is medium with light carbonation and cloying sweetness. Finish lingering and bitter.

An interesting beer, reminiscent of an east coast IPA but amped up more on the hops.

Pours an opaque deep amber producing 1.5 inches of creamy, frothy, somewhat lasting, off-white head that leaves sticky & pasty wash of lacing. Aroma is sweet caramel malt, packed with tropical fruit, orange & grapefruit flesh & pith with a generous amount of resinous pine. Taste cloyingly sweet caramel malt, loosely balanced with high octane hoppiness: tropical fruit, citrus flesh & pith & resinous pine with a very wet finish & alcohol spice. Aftertaste is a resinous hop/malt bitter-sweetness that rapidly gravitates to an imperial bitter. High ABV is well hidden. Mouthfeel is moderate-heavy bodied with moderate carbonation, oily, wet & slick finish with a bitter & astringent aftertaste.

Golden amber colored with a fingernail of eggshell white on top. It's fairly cloudy and lets minimal light seep through. Heavy lacing. Intense grapefruit aroma practically sears my nostrils. I taste intensely bitter grapefruit with substantial light malt keeping this beer in balance. The mouth is resiny, chewy and yet crisp and very refreshing.

Pours deep copper, with a very nice white foam head. Smell is amazing, frutal hops and sweet malt to balance. Taste is very nice, strong bitter kick but extremely well balanced with the grains, excellent beer.

Only the best IPA I Ever tasted. As a Bend OR beer drinker and brewer I stand by this statement. A pour from Growler Guys and a growler fill. Incredible ... yes it has a grapefruit flavor and high ABV. But really, just a darn good beer, may I drink much more. Better from the tap than the can, Viva NY

Pours a dark golden to copper, moderate head and wispy lace that retains decently. Big sweet malty aroma and taste. Strongly hopped, especially with a dry and bitter grapefruit finish. Lots of fruity tones; citrus, tropical fruit, mango, etc. Big and full mouthfeel, warming, softly carbonated and chewy. A high ABV and big flavored ipa. A great sipper.
