COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We have set out to wilfully maim and cripple the palates of the most extreme hop head. This act of wanton destruction is in the true spirit of what festive brews are about, to create something unique and fun. It is our intention to create a violent and needless disturbance in your olfactory senses. The riotous confusion, from the unnatural quantity of dry hopping, will leave your palate satisfyingly violated after having just one taste. Only the brave can be assured to tame this hop insanity.

Clear bright amber beer, good size off white fluffy head. Crispy palate. minerals. A little creamy malt. Mildly bitter tangerine - orange giving way to sweeter tangerine and then quite a bitter minerally finish. Nice but could do with more intensity.

Striking colour- bright orange with good foam. Smells great, some stonefruit sweetness.. there’s hops up front and on the back palate- lovely lingering finish goes on. Flavours were dominated by grass/spruce for me. Great beer, if somewhat underwhelming

Pours a three-finger off-white head that fades very slowly to a thin layer leaving a good lace. Crystal clear amber/copper color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Resin/bready nose. Flavor is malty, bready, some caramel like an IPA without the hops. $8.92 for a 500ml bottle from Tully’s Beer & Wine Wells, ME.

Love the hop aroma, Burst of tropical fruits, passionfruit, grapefruit, resin, and pineapple. Colour is amber with a medium head, lacing. Flavour is bitter, fruity, but a little short. Mouthfeel is good. T: enjoyable.

The grassy hoppy aroma doesn’t seem to hang around, and I get some malty richness. There is tangy on the tongue, but it seems "thin" and transient, ambivalent. Not exactly mayhem or an ambush, and unlike the Cilla Black song there is "nothing there to remind me".

Deep golden pour with a small off-white head leaving a decent amount of lacings. aroma is floral english hops and taste is mellow hoppy and caramel. could have benefitted from abit more carbonation, but all in all a decent IPA.

ClubGonzo (4028) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 14, 2012
Bottle, shared with BBGTC. Deep clear coppery orange body, small white head. Aroma is grass, licorice, peaches, hints of parsley mango and herbs. Taste is mild peachy grass tones, licorice, herbs and hints of water melon and wet leaves. The load of crystal/caramel malts is present and could have been reduced IMO. A bit low on carbonation, but smooth and nice mouthfeel. A good IPA all in all, but maybe a bit straightforward. Not so Epic, in other words.

Bärnstensfärgad. Kraftig humledoft. Humlen medföljer även i smak och möter en balanserad maltsötma. Inte direkt en kioskvältare men klart godkänd

Palme (3382) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 7, 2012
0.5l bottle @ BrewDog, Camden. This is a clear caramel-colored one with a nice medium sized light bubbly and heavy lacing off-white head. On the aroma it’s light malty and sweet with hints of fruits and red berries. Smells not extreme, but quite nice. It’s a bit thin in texture, and it’s average carbonated. The flavor is light caramelly - some burned caramel as well and I get a nice hoppy-bitter flavor. Not extreme or anything, but quite tasty. A bit strawberry-sticky towards the finish perhaps? Almost so much that it could have been a barley wine. Tasty indeed. 22.07.2012
