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.

Takkahuoneessa vuoden ekan työviikon (puolikkaan) jälkeen. Meripihkan värinen, makeuden aistii jo tuoksussakin. Alkoholi tuntuu, muttei maistu. Maku paranee joka huikalla ja jälkimaku pysyy suussa. Mieleen tulee barleywine. Hyvää! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

asheft (2761) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2012
[bottle at BrewDog pub in Edinburgh] Huge hops aroma that is tropical and grapefruit with some biscuit. Clear pinkish dark gold under a tight, white ring. Sweet flavour that has a bit of ethanol and strong notes of apricot, pineapple, and cat piss. Salty and assertively bitter hops. The ethanol becomes a bit too much as the beer warms. Full body, low carbonation, sour, ethanolic finish.

sebletitje (8029) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 13, 2012
33cl bottle, BB 05/06/2017, batch#185. Continuing the serie of gimmick beers by Brewdog, one can wonder, would you actually buy a case of this and store it? no, a one-time try gimmick type of purchase for me. Ambrée, col léger beige-jaunâtre. Arôme est houblonné, pin et résineux portant sur un bouquet de malt-cara prenant le dessus sur les houblons. Palais présente de suite une certaine présence de ces 14%, le tout restant buvable. La bière à pour défaut de mettre, vu son taux d’alcool, trop de poids sur les malts qui alternent ici entre cara moyen doux couplés à une certaine douceur presque de sirop sucré qui perdure en fin de bouche collant légèrement aux lèvres. Le tout se termine sur des notes vineuses et résineuses avec une amertume houblonnée qui vient se fondre dans ces 14%. Ces derniers donnent une présente forte de pamplemousse contre balancé par le malt.

jonno (2346) - JAPAN - DEC 12, 2012
Big, sticky, Hugely hoppy but never bracingly bitter. Well made, clean and enjoyable. Doesn’t really distinguish itself except for the BW esque like body, but doesn’t put a foot wrong either. Reminds me of a beefed up Hopsickle, with a little less personality.

SlackerMads (2285) - DENMARK - DEC 5, 2012
Bottle. Clear light amber with small white head. Aroma is heavy sweet and intense hops with notes of pineapple and citrus fruits. Also some malt and lots of caramel. Taste is soft and sweet all the way. Caramel, warming alcohol, mango, sweet sticky finish.

kermis (7831) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 1, 2012
Bottle at Beer Temple. Pours clear amber with an off white head. Aroma of resin, caramel, citrus, apricot. Flavour is heavy sweet and moderate bitter. Full bodied with soft carbonation. Closer to a barley wine than an IPA, with a thick oily feel.

Cunningham (5941) - Halden, NORWAY - DEC 1, 2012
Deep hazy caramel brown colour with a tan head that leaves a fine lacing. Rich grape hoppy and fruity aroma. Full body. Well balanced sweetness and rich bitter. Oily texture. Well hidden alcohol. Very fruity and rich grape hoppy flavour.

berlinoise2go (672) - NORWAY - NOV 24, 2012
Bottle (33cl) from Ølbutikken, 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.
