Very sweet and concentrated. Boozy in a good way, like a good avec or something like that.

Nip at Craig’s house. Wow. It is beer but I couldn’t drink a whole bottle. Very heavy taste.

12oz bottle. What an achievement. I guess I can see how some wouldn’t like this. Its definitely boozy but when you consider its 41% abv its actually incredibly well hidden and very tasty. Pours deep deep amber with carbonation! I wasn’t expecting that. Light off white head that settles quickly. If you stick your nose way down in all you get is alcohol. If you pull up a little you get huge huge aromas of citrus and pine. Huge peach and apricot note in this beer that dominates over the usual orange and tangerine/grapefruit notes. Of course noticable booze on the nose. Flavor is huge bitterness up front. How the hell did they manage this? It unlike 120minute IPA is actually bitter which really shouldn’t be possible with this much ABV. Actual citrus and pine mesh with a boozy brandy like liquer note. Finishes with warming alcohol and bitterness that lingers literally for hours. 5 beers later (and I’m talking imperial stouts and sours) the bitterness still was lingering. I gave this beer a 20 overall because an achievement like this deserves praise and recognition. This is a totally unique beer. There is literally nothing like it. I will be buying another to see what this beer becomes once the hops fade away.

Bottle generously shared by yespr at Ølbutikken, Very appreciated.
Pours an amber colour with no head.
A strong alcoholic aroma with a lot of fruity sweetness and a hoppy kick hits the nose.
Flavour is dominated by alcohol, with notes of hops and a hint of caramel and toffee. Very intense and with a long lasting after taste and throat burn.

Interesting curiosity, tastes like beer, not like any kind of spirit I have tasted. Malty, rich. Surprisingly not very alcoholic taste.

Share with Bish and Danny. Andy had some too, bet he didn’t see himself doing that when he left the house. Think numbers speak for themselves really Thomas, as someone who got a B in A Level maths I thought you’d know that.

More of All, that’s it. Simply more of all. More sugar, more caramel. A bit like wine. Would rather have this than a whisky.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
A dangerously intense IPA. Hedonistic; violent and aggressive. This hits you for six and knocks you back for more. More is exactly what I want. Intense hops. Intense malt. Intense kick up the arse. Lovely stuff. Hops aplenty and a bomb of malt. This baby is taking the USA style and slapping it about like it’s a loose duck. An awesome brew and a beer I would love to sample again. Amarilo hops; honey, caramel and spices. A tender session beer to warm your heart and have you steaming for more. Cheers, James. Thanks Magic Dave for the service.

Clear copper amber with no head.
Malty sweet boozy aroma with toffee, caramel and heavy alcohol plus maybe a hint of dried fruits.
Taste is sweet malty and heavy boozy with caramel, toffee and licorice and herbs.
Full bodied with no carbonation.
Tasty but very boozy and burning.
