COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
English: Did you like Before During and after Christmas? Maybe thought it pored brilliantly, the alcohol was admirable well hidden and you loved how the arrogant amount of hops numbed you. This beer will knock your tongue off, essentially due to the obscure amount of hops that went down this explosive fella – it’s a tour de force in hoppyness and by far the craziest beer ever made from Evil Twin – but not the last.

(bottle - 12 oz) Copper pour with a thin white head. Big citrus aroma with some very light hops underneath. Big malt bomb flavor with almost no bitterness whatsoever. Lots of citrus.

Bacterial (1372) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JUL 3, 2014
Nice clear amber pour with a white head. Big hops and a big malt character. Reminiscent of a hoppy barley wine, but somehow more drinkable. Alcohol is hardly noticeable. Really nice.

CacheManyHose (154) - HONG KONG - JUL 2, 2014
From Craftissimo. Orangey amber with small watery white head. Smells quite sweet at first - malt, pineapple and orange. Floral hop in background. Bit of spice, alcohol, vegetal mustiness. Tastes hugely, hugely hoppy (herbal, bitter) but quite spicy and malty/sweet too. Body is medium-full with a nice big oiliness. Hard to fault a beer for being too big when it's this balanced and ambitious, but as impressive as this is, the hoppiness (so overwhelming it's minty/vegetal) is too much for me.

HKdIPA (195) - HONG KONG - JUL 2, 2014
Bottle from Craftissimo at home. Hazy deep amber pour - nice. Aroma is really appealing - big juicy grapefruit and pineapple; the high alcohol is apparent too. Taste is hops explosion - the sort of vegetal taste that seems to come from very high alcohol/big DIPAs. More balanced in this but still wish it didn't have that herbaceous tinge. Very sweet and malty finish with a lasting booziness.

Niksko (305) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 2, 2014
Pours a hazy golden amber with just a smattering of bubbly white head. Nose is very sharp, bright grapefruit, a little pineapple, some caramel. There are an obscene about of hops in here. Flavor starts off with some orange marmalade, grapefruit peel, lemon, a bit of pine. The finish is a little sticky and sweet, very bitter (even for my palate), lots of grapefruit. Body is fairly heavy with a sticky, dense mouthfeel that coats your lips.

suurjuust (959) - ESTONIA - JUL 1, 2014
Shared by martjoobolut, thanks! Hazy orange, off-white head. Nose is caramel, malt, citrus, hops. Flavor is thick malty sweetness, grapefruit, oranges, pine. Powerful hoppy bitter hit in the finish along with a generous amount of warm booze. Thick and heavy, beyond a DIPA.

Pours pale amber, unclear due to many hop particles with beige, thick, frothy top leaving light lasing. Lasting not long. Aroma- enormous malt sweetness, intense light-caramel suplemented by dozens of pine, resin and light citrusy hops, hints of leather and wooden too. Nice balance in flavor between massive sweetness ans deep bitterness. Astringent mouthfeel, light dry finish, flat carbonation, medium-full body, long piney-resiny aftertaste. Good sample of IIPA, maybe seems too sweet for drinking, but for sipping- perfect.

7/VI/14 - 12Fl. Oz. bottle from Geers (Oostakker) @ Klaas & Liesje’s place - bottled: II/12/14 (2014-605) Thanks to Klaas for sharing the bottle!<b/>

Clear dark orange beer, irregular yellow head, unstable, bit adhesive. Aroma: sweet and malty, sugary, caramel, bit of jam, fruity. MF: ok carbon, full body. Taste: sweet and sugary start, some citrus, honey, fruity. Aftertaste: passion fruits, lots of sweet mango, caramel, pretty bitter, sugary, piny touch.

egg (66) - USA - JUN 28, 2014
Growler pour on 6/29/14. Pours a nearly clear orangeish amber with a lasting slightly off white head. Nose is faintly hoppy, ripe fruits, peaches, mango. Taste is sweet, fruity, peaches, and mango again followed by bitterness and alcohol on the back. Dangerously drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
