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.

Gurthnar (2275) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JAN 3, 2015
Bottle, aged ~2 years to see what happens. Best before 05/06/2017. Aroma rich malty, fruity, raisins. Lightly hazy orange-amber colour. Taste is pretty strong alcoholic, high hopping still evident, but rather citrusy, zesty, and receding to background. Full malty taste, result similar to american barley wine. Interesting development, showcasing the hops (un)aging.

Beese (2560) - 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...

Abio (1642) - Waasland, BELGIUM - OCT 18, 2014
Amber coloured brew. Very siropy, and alcoholic. Ruins it a bit, cause the fruity taste on its own is not bad at all.

Alengrin (2630) - BELGIUM - JUL 25, 2014
One of those exciting Brewdog things, a kind of ’triple IPA’, with a coarse, yellowish white, thick but quickly dissipating head (the latter does not have to surprise given the very impressive alcohol strength) and a warm amber glowing colour, cristal clear, very pretty, quietly fizzy. Very, and I mean very powerful aroma, with overwhelming hops and equally overwhelming alcohol, but none of the two really disturb me because the whole bouquet boosts complexity enough, with hints of cognac, cloves, apple sauce, candied orange, tonic water, mango, grapefruit, banana liqueur, pine needles and methylated spirits. In the mouth an onset of a liqueurish sweetishness, as in Grand Marnier, medium carbonation, caramelly and honeyish malts smooth, not too thick especially in view of its strength, towards the end a ’green’, overpowering hop bitterness stripping the tongue along with the expected booze, reminiscent of brandy and gin and drying mouth and throat alike, in a sticky and - unfortunately but understandably - somewhat astringent way. An interesting experience nevertheless.
