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.

Marduk (6436) - Reval, ESTONIA - JUN 2, 2013
330ml bottle. Dark amber redish color. Tiny to almost no head. Mango, fruity, bubblegum, burnt sugar in aroma. Ohh and grassy hops as well. Alcohol and sugars mixed with tropical fruits dominate the flavor. Way too sweet and alcoholic. Off balanced.

suprchunk (2964) - Crestview, Florida, USA - MAY 27, 2013
Slight haze to the amber color. Slim off white head. Fades quickly leaving nothing behind. Big malt aroma. A nice floral bouquet made up if hops. Citrus. Malty flavor. Slightly cloying but the hops and bitterness balance it out. Pretty good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Citrusy aroma, some grapefruit, rather sweet hint of peach(?) alcohol very apparent. Overall experience reminded me of a bourbon-like drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Foffern (1695) - BodÝ, NORWAY - MAY 24, 2013
Bottle at home. The colour is golden orange with a small light beige head. Sour hoppy aroma with pine, grapefruit and herbal hops. More herbal hops in a powerful flavour with alcohol, marzipan and grapefruit. Rich and slick mouth feel, and a medium to heavy bitterness. Powerful and balanced DIPA but maybe too much alcohol for my liking.

flying_pig (1431) - SCOTLAND - MAY 20, 2013
Bottle from Brewdog.com (£9.99, 330ml):
Strong, bitter hops and a good helping of alcohol mixed with some tropical fruit notes kicks things off quite well. There is some citrus notes, grapefruit and some sweeter malts coming through with some vanilla and some grain too. Itís not as harsh on the nose as I was expecting.
Clear, bright, orange amber colour with a half centimetre tall and bubbly head that is a very light tan colour. Head turns patchy lacing after a couple moments.
Sweet with some subdued hops and a touch of vanilla along with huge amounts of alcohol and grain. There is some citrus, apricot and pine with some spice and pepper too. The taste is quite nice but then all of a sudden the alcohol takes over.
Full bodied and backed up with huge amounts of alcohol and grain. There beer is quite fruits and sweet with a strong and dry finish that feels quite thick and oily.

Started really nice yet very strong double IPA (well triple IPA apparently) with a lot of bitter hops and sweetness coupled with tonnes of alcohol but as the drink progressed it managed to settle down some and turn it to a very strong and warming beer that I spent well over an hour drinking. Not bad but not really great either.

lord_totenkopf (314) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 6, 2013
Golden body, yellow head. Very hoppy fragrances and quite brutal bitterness but not the kind that I expected from a double IPA. Taste is somewhat buttery, very drinkable, there is some sweetness balancing the bitterness, although I canít decide what the cause is. Pretty good.

mcberko (14665) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 28, 2013
330mL bottle, pours a clear reddish orangey amber with a small beige / tan head. Aroma is very malty for a triple IPA, with notes of syrupy caramel malts, resinous hops, and some fruity notes. Flavour is very syrupy for such a highly hopped beer, with syrupy caramel malts, some very fruity notes, and resinous hops -- the hops are certainly there, but the malts outshine here. A little cloying in sweetness. Decent stuff, but this isnít exactly the best idea to begin with.
