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.

Color is dark orange with a nice small head, bigger then I was expecting. The aroma is grapefruit, blue cheese, bread. Taste is tender and softer then I was expecting, syrupy-like, caramel, warming alcohol. Also the texture is oily and has no bubbles what so ever. One of the best beers I’ve had, if not the best.

Beese (2570) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2014
Bottle at BrewDog Camden on 9 Apr 2012. Poured a clear, bright orange, with a dense off white head. Aroma of massive resinous hops, grapefruit, passionfruit, mango and honeycomb. Super smooth mouthfeel. Golden syrup flavours, with tinned fruit, melon, biscuit, burnt sugar and herbs. Perfect balance of intense bitter hops, pine, grass and sweet fruit and caramelised sugar in the finish. Possibly the best BrewDog beer I’ve ever had...

Lilja (2839) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 16, 2013
En flaska som fått stå till sig något år. Smak och doft av humle, malt, honung, karamell, sirap, söt tallkåda, persika, plommon. Fruktig, oljig, kraftfull, trots sin höga alkoholhalt (14%) slår den inte överdrivet igenom utan skapar en varm munkänsla. Ren och len smak med barley wine känsla utan överdriven sötma. Bra beska med smak av grapefrukt och tall med toner av peppar. Välbalanserad och fantastiskt god, vill bara ha mer av detta.

Clearish amber. Malt malt malt malt. Did I mention the aroma of malt? Also traces of muscat. Limited carbonation with an incredibly smooth mouthfeel that coats the mouth. Elements of muscat and a slight tartness, leading into a pleasant, cleansing bitterness. Incredibly balanced. The huge alcohol content isn't even noticed. This is an outstanding beer and one of my favourites. The elements of fortified wine take it to another level. BrewDogs might get criticised by some (they're certainly left of centre) but I think they're great. Well worth the $25 for a 330ml bottle shared with good, like minded mates. -
