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 Ė itís a tour de force in hoppyness and by far the craziest beer ever made from Evil Twin Ė but not the last.

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 canít possibly go undisguised here - itís borderline barleywine country, mild lemon, mild pine, mild resin. Flavours are impactful and somewhat masochistic.

Block (2206) - 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 (816) - 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 (374) - Grindsted, 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.

A badass brewery. A badass beer name. A badass beer. "Hop Bomb" is typically the phrase used to describe a beer thatís heavy on IBUís. But with 13% ABV, Molotov Cocktail is more of an incendiary device, as the name implies. Wait, what does that sentence mean? I guess I just thought it sounded cool. Just one of these made me tipsy. Iím getting to be a lightweight. Anyway, Molotov Cocktail is a helluva an IPA. Dark orange pour. Piney, biscuity aroma. Flavor is redolent of citrus (bitter grapefruit, sweet tangerine), resinous pine, and sugary alcohol. Imperial IPAís with this much booze run the risk of having medicinal undertones or overwhelming sweetness. Molotov Cocktail avoids these pitfalls by still managing to be plenty crisp and bitter despite itís high-intoxicant factor. A balls-out brew, for sure, but a beautifully made one.

Lonick (1143) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 1, 2015
Keg @The Craft Beer Co, Clerkenwell. Pours golden, slightly hazy, thinnish white head. Nose is nutty, apples, toffee apples. Taste is resin, citrus fruits, nutty but lots of sweetness on the finish, not my cup of tea.

Drake (11576) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 29, 2015
Bottle shared at the Nov. 2015 Monticello Dairy tasting. Hazy orange, thin creamy tan head, good retention. Aroma of candied grapefruit and pale malt. The taste is grapefruit, lemon, tea, brown sugar, booze. Medium bodied.

patrick767 (3971) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - NOV 29, 2015
bottle - Pours murky orange and has an intensely hoppy aroma with resin, citrus, caramel malt, and alcohol. It has strong flavors of bitter, resinous hops and caramel malt sweetness. Itís full bodied and aggressive as hell on the palate. It put me in mind of Stone Double Bastard though that could be off as itís been a long time since I had Double Bastard. Itís still very good if you love hops like I do, though honestly I think I prefer a really well made double IPA in the 8-10% abv range.

TaxiDriver (1732) - Stadland, GERMANY - NOV 29, 2015
A very fruity smell of grapefruit and citrus. The head is white and foamy-milky, quite large, the body is dark orange. The taste is very strong and fruity. The body is heavy, very creamy with a soft carbonation.

danlo (2477) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2015
330ml bottle. Deep orangey amber colour, off-white foam head and aroma of malt caramel & orange hop. Taste is sweetish, malt caramel, toffee, boiled sweets, tropical fruits, citrus & pine, spicy bitterness with warm boozey notes. Oily mouthfeel, medium body, soft carbonation, warming dry bitter finish. Nicely drinkable.
