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.

Ontbeertaster (2338) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 9, 2014
Tap, pours dark yellow, a bit cloudy, aroma is fruity, taste is a nice hop bomb, and it does a good job of hiding the alcohol and it was really quite tasty, nice stuff

sudomorph (609) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 7, 2014
12 FL oz bottle. Pours a cloudy, bright orange with a one finger, near white head that thins to a film and ring. Aroma is moderatly large with notes of resin, pine, alcohol, citrus, pineapple, and other tropical fruits. Taste is bitter bit also with a lot of sugar sweetness. Pine, resin, sugar, alcohol, peach, and citrus ending with a mild, alcohol/sugar aftertaste. Full body with a low-medium carbonation. Syrupy sweet texture in the mouth with a soft carbonation. Overall sweet to the taste with an alcohol warmth. Other flavours are there but this is a big, sweet, alcoholic beer.

This beer is the bomb. While it's nothing special to look at the flavor and body are exemplary. For aroma since my Snooter doesn't work so well I try to rate things conservatively. The label says the beer will knock my tongue off and numb my mouth with hops and while that didn't happen the beer is excellent considering it was stored in less than ideal conditions for two years. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

John25 (502) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - AUG 6, 2014
Bottle. The hops have faded so it's mainly caramel and candied sugar. Hazy gold. Some tropical fruit and melon come through. Rich malty mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Slightly hazy gold with thin white head. Aroma is melon and caramel. Taste adds toffee and brown sugar. No real meaningful hop bitterness at all. Very tasty but very sweet. Medium smooth mouthfeel. This might be old since there's no bitterness but it's shockingly tasty anyway.

jookos (2162) - FINLAND - AUG 4, 2014
Bottle. Copper clear. Butterscotch hoppy nose, some florals pushing through. Lots of pale sweet caramel. Full bodied. Oily, but with bitters to clear it out. Pale caramels, bit like eating cookie dough. An extreme beer. But manages ok to remain drinkable. Intensive.

JoeMcPhee (8410) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 3, 2014
Hazy amber pour. Rich thick creamy white head. Nose is intensely hoppy. Loaded with pithy resin and some rich, earthy pine resin hop character. Just loaded with hop flavour. There’s a sogmificant amount of malt sweetness that adds a bit of caramelly character to the back bit this is mostly about the hops. Tooth-coating resin and a lingering chewiness. A little bit of mint and some herbal notes as well. Definite tobaccoish aromas as well.

lamas (1360) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 2, 2014
Bottle. Bottled: 02/12/14. A hazy copper pour with tons of chunky floaties and a smallish beige head. The aroma is full of caramel, bitter grapefruits, pine, zesty citrus rinds, and some peppery spiciness. A thick, syrupy body. Lots of caramel and toffee dominate the initial taste. Plenty of vanilla and dates in the middle. Grapefruits and citrus rinds at the tail-end. A strong booziness with lots of warming alcohol and a spicy bite throughout. The quality is evident, but still a bit too sweet for my taste.

DocJitsu (957) - Florida, USA - AUG 2, 2014
Pours a slightly cloudy golden with a sticky, off white head. Thick, oily texture. Nice balance. Not overtaken by the malt, but sugary sweet. Ample, fresh sweet citrus with an alcoholic bitterness.
