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.

bubbleflubber (2114) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JAN 5, 2016
Pours a deep orange into the glass with a light soapy head that diminishes to a tiny ring cap that leaves trace lacing. The nose is orange rind/peel/zest and pine. Flavors are of candied orange, alcohol, peppering piney bitters, and finish with an alcohol burn that complements the lingering pepper spruce-pine bitterness. The palate is chewy in texture, full-bodied, with a somewhat syrupy-boozy mouthfeel. I do enjoy these candied, high ABV Impy IPAs on occasion. This, honestly, is one of the better examples of that style that I’ve had. A great nightcap sipper, in my humble opinion. Definitely warms one through the bitter cold winter evenings. Hats off!

fantti (848) - FINLAND - JAN 2, 2016
Pullo @ Uba & Humal, Tallinna. Kaatuu snifteriin kullankeltaisena ja hieman utuisena, noin kahden sormen paksuisella vaahdolla. Tuoksu on oletettavasti karamellisen maltainen, lisäksi löytyy sitruksisuutta ja makeampaa hedelmää sekä puumaisuutta. Hieman yksipuolinen ja makean maltaa dominoima tuoksu. Maussa makea karamellisuus on jälleen vahvinta, nyt makea sitrus on kuitenkin hieman vahvempaa ja uutena elementtinä on havuisuutta sekä pihkaa maltaisuutta tukemassa. Suutuntuma on makeahko, hieman alkoholin polttama ja humalointikin tuntuu etenkin jälkimaussa. Yllättävän hyvä olut voltteihin nähden, odotin viinaisempaa ja yksipuolisempaa kokonaisuutta. Makea sitrus on mukava vivahde.

rami_pl (1065) - Warszawa, POLAND - JAN 1, 2016
butelka. bardzo intensywny aromat - skrzyzowanie chmieli - glownie owoce tropikalne - z wysoka, miodowa, slodka slodowoscia a la barley wine. ciezkie w odbiorze, dosc nisko wysycone, bardzo lepkie, z wysoka i dosc dluga goryczka. alkohol troche w aromacie a troche w grzaniu w gardlo. baardzo dobre sumarycznie. niemniej nie urywa, glownie chyba przez dosc agresywny alkohol.

Mooie oranje kleur met een goede volle kraag. Ruikt zeer fruitig, hop, orange, tikkeltje zoetig, vanille. Smaakt zoetig, honing, hop, vanille. Bittere afdronk. Lekker. Tikkeltje zwaar.

badgerben (4722) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - DEC 29, 2015
Dark orange color with a medium head. Boozy, caramel laden aroma. Big caramel and grain flavor. Monster bitterness, but thick chewy malt background that is still kinda sweet. Candied orange peel, pine needles.

Hopmaestro (972) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 28, 2015
Aroma is full of resin and sweet fruits and alcohol tingle-tangle a bit in your nose hair. Taste is deep, sweet malts with a fair amount of sweet oranges, ripe pineapple and cookie dough. In the long aftertaste resin, caramel and a bit of booze hug each other in a group hug. This is a real badass, and I love it. Go big, or go home!

bulldogops (1681) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 25, 2015
Rating #1485 - 07.03.2015 - 355mL Bottle from Sherbrooke. Pours a darker amber, with a bubbly tan head. Aroma is citrusy, lemony, piney hops predominant. Taste is extremely hoppy, tempered with a pleasant cookie dough malty sweetness, 13% ABV can’t possibly go undisguised here - it’s borderline barleywine country, mild lemon, mild pine, mild resin. Flavours are impactful and somewhat masochistic.

Block (1916) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - DEC 19, 2015
This beer is strong. It doesn't feel like an IPA. It feels like a string ale. A malty backbone carries a pretty potent initial kick of hops. Alcohol comes in fast and moves through the finish.

bigda83 (645) - Jamestown, New York, USA - DEC 18, 2015
Draft. Poured a clear bright yellow and had a large sudsy white head to it. Aroma was nice with tons of fruit notes with tropical and citrus. Flavor had grapefruit, lemon, mango, sweet candy. Alcohol was masked really well. Medium body, sticky texture, good carbonation, slightly bitter and easy finish. Very good beer.

Guruhso (111) - DENMARK - DEC 16, 2015
Bottle. Malty aroma of over-riped peach and grapefruit. Body is medium and texture is oily. Flavour is very sweet with a very bitter long finish. Light alcohol burn in it.
