Fuck the system. Forget what you know. What has been. Bow to no one. History is bereft. Reorder. Disorder. Embrace the unknown. The groundbreaking. The challenging. The ichorous revolution is upon us. Try until your fingers bleed and your mind is numb.Try harder. Try this. Try that. Try the other. Try what hasnít been tried. Then try again. Keep trying. Forge the new. The molten elixir awakens.

A 16.5% IPA Evolution. Taking our favourite beer style to the next level, Anarchist Alchemist is a triple dry hopped triple IPA. Did not think triple IPAs existed? Neither did we. So we brewed one.

berlinoise2go (675) - NORWAY - NOV 24, 2012
Bottle (33cl) from ōlbutikken, Copenhagen. Finger-thick offwhite, sticky head, good retention, settles as a thin film with bubbly islands. Clear copper/amber colour. Intense, but not in-yer-face, hoppy aroma, with concentrated citrus notes, caramel, resin. Full body (naturally), average carbonation. Semi-sweet taste with a powerful bitterness that is somehow kept in check by the high alcohol content, with very impressive results. The high ABV manifests itself in body rather than taste. Lovely, long aftertaste of resiny bitterness.

sputnikus (96) - Brno, CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 22, 2012
Bottle. Orange, very clear appearance with frothy, quickly disappearing head. Aroma is very, very fruity (dried peaches, honey) with a whiskey and pepper notes in it. Taste is really bittersweet, more like a barleywine because of alcohol notes. Beer has light, oily body with lively carbonation. Aftertaste is definitely bitter, like whiskey and lemon zest with refreshing honey note. Overally it is well worth the pricing tag.

Sizzler80 (502) - Dublin, IRELAND - NOV 10, 2012
Dark amber with a frothy white head. Aroma: hops, malt, toffee, alcohol, oak, red grape, pepper. Hops hops hops. Very dry and bitter initially which sweetens a lot. Strong alcohol warmth which packs a punch. This has a massive set of aromas and flavours. Low carbonation. Hops, toffee, mandarin, cognac, pine, banana skin, red grape, pepper spice. Much more of a barleywine in my opinion.

tfredvik (1505) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 29, 2012
I donít know if itís my expectations of a boozy brew that trick me, but to me this clear light copper body sort of looks like a pale cognac. It does have a head, however, a small, frothy, eggnog coloured head that is rather short-lived, but still laces the glass pretty well. The aroma is rather strong, nice, special but actually a bit too much. Itís hoppy alright, but the malty parts are even stronger. Burnt sugar, overripe fruits and alcohol. The taste is so much better! A moderate to heavy sweet taste with a heavy bitter and long-lasting and very warming alcoholic finish. The fruity elements are not at all tropical or citric or the other stuff that I often find in ((I)I)IPAs, this is closer to fermented apples than succulent mango and peach. Also resin, cough syrup, burnt sugar, herbs like anise and faint spices and liquorice. The vinous body is full and has an oily texture and soft carbonation. Calling this stuff very drinkable is a bit far fetched, itís too violently alcoholic and bitter for that, but still a very nice sipper indeed.
[33 cl bottle, batch 185, enjoyed 5 years before BB date (why canít the breweries print the bottling date instead, thatís so much more interesting!), from Vinmonopolet Vika, Oslo]

toffeeslot (119) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 22, 2012
A Heavy duty IIPA with all the right aromas and tastes. Banana, toffee, caramel, spice and zest all come together to create a powerful beer. Very thick and syrupy mouthfeel. I paired this with a Madras curry!

Ktwse (2961) - SWEDEN - OCT 13, 2012
Pours a deep amber, clear, with a minimal white head. Aroma is rich, with caramel malt, spruce and resin, some citrus and grapefruit. Surprisingly fresh for a triple IPA. Taste is very boozy, with a clear port sweetness up front that slowly turns into a fairly balanced bitterness. As far as extreme IPAs go, I think they strike a nice balance, but of course, at 14% ABV itís way past the sweet spot for ABV versus absolute IPA taste, and itís definitely boozy, alcohol sweet and warming. Body is very rich and creamy, with almost no carbonation. Thereís a nice slight bitterness in the long, boozy finish. I quite enjoyed it.
