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.

12 oz. can - Batch #024

Pours hazy amber-gold orange with a quickly receding frothy white foam head. Smells like mango, fresh orange, papaya, grapefruit, some caramel biscuity malts, with bitter resinous earthy herbal grassy pine. Tastes like big mango, fresh orange, some papaya, grapefruit, bitter resinous earthy herbal grassy pine, with boozy caramel biscuity malts. Feels medium-light bodied, creamy and slick with moderate carbonation. Overall a real nice and boozy imperial IPA.

Pours clear amber from 12 oz can with a 1/2" white head. Aroma is citrus and hop. Taste is IPA hoppy with citrus notes. Claims to have mango and orange, but all you get is the citrus. Not a bad thing. Feel is very good, nice and smooth, especially for a 12% brew. Overall, it's easy to drink and very tasty, but at 12% two is probably a good place to stop.

This beer pours a clear gold with an average head. The aroma features orange, caramel, pine, cannabis, mango and cedar. The flavor offers up dark pine, orange peel, roast mano, and is very, very bitter, with a finish of burnt caramel. The mouthfeel is full. thick, and has low carbonation. Overall this beer represents an exploration of bitterness - it is not too sweet, often a risk for the style of DIPA, and not a complex brew, but a very enjoyable one for me.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a speiglau IPA glass.

Look is an orange anger with a head that dissipates quickly.

Aroma is a light candy orange and a alcoholic burn at the end.

Taste is not as strong as aroma. Just a lot of alcohol burn.

Good beer, but lets down a little in taste.

Poured from a 12 oz can into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Pours a clear golden orange color... 1 finger of white head. Not much lacing.

S: Juicy and fruity... citrus, mango, and pineapple.

T/F: Light malts give way to a very juicy and dank hop profile. Lots of tropicals... the mango shows through. Definite citrus and a bit of pineapple. Also some light floral elements. Sharp and bitter... finish is juice... coats the tongue. Sticky and resinous. Warming and almost boozy.

O: A big juicy IPA. Lots of flavor... and the ABV could be a bit better hidden (that 12% sneaks up on you fast). Love the big juicy DIPA's though. Glad I got a 4-pack.

Caramel amber color, thin wispy head

Smells like their Charlie Work IPA, with wet and fresh grassy aromas

Flavor is very malty and ugly/caramel sweetness. Idk if I can finish this.

Feel is slightly creamy but pointless now.

Drain pour.

Strong imperial with a great taste. The massive amount of hops leaves you relaxed and the taste is satisfying. Highly recommended for the taste, the bite, and the relaxation afterwards.

Misc.: N/A

Went to this place for the second straight night. This time I reviewed a Molotov Cocktail and sipped on another Bomb! while eating an OK burger. More interested in this one than excited.

Poured a deep gold yellow color with 3-to-4 fingers of rocky white head. Some bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass. Almost perfect spiderweb foamy lacing. World-class foamy retention. Just a good looking beer. (Sight - 4.75)

Smelled Citra, Cascade, lemon peel, lime, caramel and a touch of tropical. Smells really smooth for 13 pct. ABV. (Smell - 3.75)

Tasted maltier than I would have thought. Caramel, toffee, bitter pine, Citra, dry Cascade, some spices (maybe Simcoe?), lemon peel, citrus zest, Nugget and a touch of earthy tobacco. Boozy, but not 13 pct. ABV boozy. (Taste - 3.75)

Medium body. Creamy texture. Lively carbonation. Dry malty finish. (Feel - 4.25)

Liked the smoothness of this one overall. Was nice to try, but not sure it’s something I would need to have again. (Overall - 4.00)

Appearance - Pours golden colored with pretty decent white head, very spotty lacing around the glass.

Aroma - The alcohol stands out pretty strong, pine, grapefruit, hops very faint hint of fruit hard to tell through the alcohol.

Taste - The alcohol is pretty overwhelming in this, bitter pine, grapefruit not getting much fruit but guess what lots of rubbing alcohol.

Feel - Pretty hot and burns from the alcohol, medium body maybe a little heavy on the carbonation.

Overall - This thing does not play and hits hard with the alcohol, I cant seem to find my way around it to find the other flavors.
