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.

minutemat (1282) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2014
Keg @ Brewdog Birmingham. Like an alcoholic molotov cocktail to the mouth. Punchy, hoppy, destructive. When the apocalypse comes I want a pint of this in my hand.

ALLOVATE (2333) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 5, 2014
Weighty, plump, caramelised and concentrated fruit nose showing ripe plum, tangelo and mandarin, grapefruit and apricot and a hint of cherry. Boozy, thick and sugary sweet. Pours a deep, burnished orange with a bad case of the floaties. Headless bar a brim of white on the meniscus. No carbonation evident. Freakin’ hell, a Molotov cocktail it is, wow...., BURN!! It is everything it should be, then in a pill form to be taken real quick-like. It is gammy, heavy, treacly, sickly sweet with an afterburn that could get me exposed as some random alcoholic should I breath on someone after my first sip. Carbonation is low and it has a filling, all-encompassing candyish quality that is charming but the other 98% of it isn’t. Strangely addictive though. I’m pressed to slow down on supping it! Bready, toasted malt base with a cookie dough linger. Hops are muddled; it’s more fermentation esters than humorous loopiness. Sweet from go to whoa. Lasting, tangy fruit with little bitterness to break it up though the ’Hot’, fusel-like alcohol of it gives it bite. Body heaves and it becomes more and more sticky as it warms. I oddly like is as much as I loathe - suppose love and hate are similar entities. HOT!! (33cL, Bottled 12/02/14, The Liquor Barn, Jandakot)

bp (784) - Queens, New York, USA - JUN 3, 2014
Bottle: pours a cloudy amber with little yeasty bits floating around, white head, aroma is sweet and hoppy, taste is slightly sweet with a lot of resinous hoppy flavor, a little sticky with some burn in the finish.

Chrishrt30 (95) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 1, 2014
Very thin white head, deep hazy amber with light carbonation. Aroma is a real punch to the senses, huge floral and tropical fruit, passion fruit, apricot and so much citrus. It's like a fruit salad to taste too, pineapple, passion fruit and berries, but soaked on liquor. A salty caramel malt profile will huge hoppy resins. The finish is slick and bitter, slightly salty and biscuity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Salda ipa, dubultā. Rūgtuma un salduma balanss tiešam labs. Verēja būt mazāk salds.

This stuff is the gas. Very strong and hoppy. Smells malty with a alcohol finish. Ha this one at home. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

auee92 (11) - Lawrenceville, USA - MAY 25, 2014
Aroma: Deep and malty, with plenty of brown sugar and decadent sweetness, very light pine and resin Appearance: An amber maroon hue that is quite beautiful to behold! Taste: Heavily sweet, lightly bitter, with a medium sourness that holds on for a brilliantly long finish Palate: Medium body with a thin, slick texture, average carbonation and an aburbt finish Overall: A triple IPA should be "different". This is. With an approximate 13% ABV this is a potent, malty, sweet beer with slight hints of hops and abundant malts. Hand your buddy the keys and have three, or five! Serving type: on-tap

RichTheVillan (2415) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2014
Keg at Brewdog Birmingham; hazy light copper pour with a frothy white head, pine and grapefruit aroma, big bitter grapefruit taste with fresh pine, ABV is worryingly unnoticeable, sticky mouthfeel, excellent DIPA.

berlinoise2go (604) - NORWAY - MAY 23, 2014
Bottle (33cl). Finger-thick cream white head, settles as a thick film with some lacing. Colour is hazy amber/blood orange. Rich, deeply satisfying nose with fruity hops, caramel, resin, cookies, bitter orange marmalade, even hint of licorice. Taste is powerful, bitter-sweet, very well-balanced (a bit on the sweet side, but at this ABV it feels appropriate). Alcohol remarkably well-hidden taste-wise. Full body, soft carbonation. Long bitter-sweet fruity aftertaste with a slight alcohol burn.

Alusmamuts (181) - LATVIA - MAY 19, 2014
ice aroma, amber with medium light yellow cap. Well balanced sweetness and bitterness, but probably a bit too sweet for me.
