COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 hasn’t 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.

I really liked this. Oily and massively hoppy. Some aniseed and a sweet bitter finish. Great.

brokensail (15468) - Dublin, California, USA - JUL 30, 2012
Amber in color with a white head. Not shockingly, the nose is super sweet. Heavy on the caramel and brown sugar. It does at least have some citrus character to it. A touch of booze on the nose and a little bit of sweet fruit. The flavor is quite sweet as well. Caramel, brown sugar, and toffee. A little bit of booze, some light oxidation, and candied citrus and fruits. Could use some bitterness.

On keg at The BrewDog Bar. Pours a dark golden amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma of pine, coconut, pineapple, must yeast and alcohol. Similar flavours with fair bitterness. Mild carbonation and CO2 prickle with an oily mouth-feel. A little dry and sweet with lingering coconut and oak.

bennet65 (88) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUL 24, 2012
huge hop hit on the nose, malts fairly present too. booze really comes through. first taste has all of these combined in one hit along with a huge sweet syrupy kick that is far too much for me. alcohol burn is too intense for the abv. sickly and not really my thing

330ml bottle from Drink Shop, Tallinn

Batch 072, BBE 17.03.17 - Pours clear dark amber with a small white head. Strong sweet malty aroma with notes of glue, alcohol and fruity hops. Taste is malty and sweet with some fruitiness, caramel, syrup and sugar. Hints of glue and gooseberries. Finish is again heavy on malts and sweet sugary notes. Alcohol comes through way too much. Unbalanced, messy and boozy. Too sweet for my taste.

Smallprint (74) - - JUL 19, 2012
Poured from a 330ml bottle ordered from the brewery. Pours a lovely deep copper/burnt orange with a small off white head that quickly dissipates. Typical big ipa smell, strong hop and fruit aromas. Taste is of citrus fruits, hops, bitterness with a strong alcohol presence that can be slightly overwhelming. Full bodied with a long, bitter finish with a slight burn. Hardcore IPA is superior.
