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 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.

HoppyBudgie (692) - SOLA, NORWAY - FEB 25, 2013
33 cl bottle. Very hoppy with some alcoholy nose. Very fruity, pineapple, mango. Heavy in bitterness, Full body, nicely balanced. Doesnt give the alcohol away too mutch (14%abv) But kinda expensive for the taste.

tseo (153) - Athens, GREECE - FEB 18, 2013
Bottle from Local Pub, Halandri Aroma: Very rich sweet-bitter nose (more on the sweett side), with lots and lots of caramel goodness. Alcohol is evident, too, but in a good way. Rich, earthy, hoppy currents and some peach and plum fruity notes. Lovely. Mouthfeel: Quite a mouthful. A big beer, with reasonable carbonation and a sticky feel. Taste: Huge flavors here. Too much malt presence, nice hops. Sweet, syrupy taste. Peppery, earthy hops underneath. Piny, carameley, fruity touches on the palate. Not particularly bitter, not for this amount of malt. Finish: Layers and layers of sweet, tart, crisp flavours develop into a warm finish, not unlike that of a brandy. Great. Overall: More like a barley wine, if you ask me. Still, this is one seriously good beer.

Clear bright amber beer. Massive pale cream coloured head. The head tastes of intense sweet grassy hops. Palate is silky smooth. Sweet rich hops - sweet pine, grass and skunk. Honey malt. A little aniseed alcohol. Mild minerals. Generally hides the abv well.

Geiserich (3385) - Linz, AUSTRIA - FEB 12, 2013
Bottle: The aroma is very intensive, full of resin, hop essence and some sweet malt notes. Amber to orange color, off-white foamy head. Flavor is also full and oily, medium sweet, hints of candies and caramel. Dominant hop flavor, full of resin, herbs, alcohol. LOvely hop notes, bit too alcoholic.

andrepintado (1424) - Lisbon, PORTUGAL - FEB 11, 2013
33cl from cervezalandia. Nice orange, amber color. Thin white head. Low to medium carbonation. Very nice fruity, hoppy and herby aroma, but overall itís a fair beer. Itís a shame...

bkurtz (787) - PERU - FEB 5, 2013
Pours a hazy copper with a typical head. Aromas of pine, caramel, and grass. Not expecting what I got from my first sip. Sweet malts and a syrupy warming down the throat. I am trying to appreciate this, but it is cloying and too aggressive.

esp0r (1980) - NORWAY - FEB 4, 2013
Bottle from Vinmonopolet Storo enjoyed at home
Dark copper, beige head that falls down quite fast. Smells of grapefruit, pine, caramel and candy. Heavy sweet, a real cerial soup, candy, this is a sugar bomb - too much on the sweet side; with a sting of alcohol to mess it up more. Oily texture, full body, soft carbonation. Heavy bitter finish with pine and resins. A imperial ipa where imperial stands for the extreme sweetness you get. Itís so sweet the bitterness is almost killed off even though itís quite heavy. The hops are quite nice; but the sugar is in pole position here

LarsEngen (363) - Sandvika, NORWAY - FEB 3, 2013
33 cl bottle from vinmonopolet kolsŚs. Batch 185. Pours clear amber with a medium off white head. Hoppy aroma with some alcohol notes. Pinapple and other fruits. full body, heavy bitterness, alcohol is very well hidden for a 14% ABV. Nice one but expencive.

dEnk (3803) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 31, 2013
Bottle @ tasting. Aroma is (rubbing) alcohol, sharp hops, herbs. Flavour is an overkill of hops and alcohol. Just too much.

maneliquor (3109) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 29, 2013
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Orange pour with a small, firm yellow head which slowly disappears. Nose shows lots of dried fruit - apricot, banana. A fair bit of blood orange and heavy hop resin too. Taste is very sticky sweet and resinous. Loads of orange zest and citric undertones. Heavy sticky date notes. Quite sweet. Solid beer and worth a shot ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
