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.

An interesting IPA. Pours a thick orange with a light white head. Smells good, quite boozy, with peach, bit of raspberry. Taste is very boozy and sweet, more peach. Some hops in the finish. Had in the bottle.

Hazy orange pour with a thin white head. Couple of floaties in there. Soapy lacing. Aroma is caramel, candied oranges, pine, and dank. Taste is resin, dank, pine, grapefruit, and caramel. Faint booze warmth but alcohol is well hidden. Medium body.

Hazy golden with white sparkling head. Orange marmelade, spice and green. Full Sweet, spicy, hoppy and resin finish. Overall: aroma lacks compared too flavour.

At Craft Room. Thanks Ivor! Small white head, misty dark amber orange body. Fresh herbal orange jam aroma. Taste... sweet and slightly sticky, orange candy and herbs. Light alcohol and dry malt. Later on the orange and herbal notes break through and hints of loveliness beat the inherent overly strong sweetness up. Pretty great.

Poured from a bottle. Cloudy, bright orange with a thin white head. Citrus dominates the aroma, lots of grapefruit, some orange. Juicy citrus flavors with mild bitterness, caramel sweetness, and quite a bit of breadiness. Full mouth feel. Delicious beer, very drinkable. 13% sneaks up on you.

Sensacional essa imperial IPA. Mesmo com os 13% ABV é muito equilibrada e fácil de beber. Incrível.

On tap at Republic in Minneapolis. Huge hoppy aroma, bright, sweet, juicy, heady. Taste is a bit sweet, plenty of hoppy bitterness but the sweetness keeps it from being perfectly balanced.

Bottle. Hazy golden yellow color, white head. Aroma of mixed citrus and pine. Taste has sticky pine resin. Definitely a sipper.

ABT_S54 (352) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2015
33cl bottle served in a snifter. Pours thick and hazy orange with a very short lived bubbly head. Aroma is massive hops and clearly a lot of sweet malts but mostly the resinous piney hops which you just know from the intensity of aroma are going to destroy your palate. Taste is upfront medium sweetness with a huge (I mean massive) kick of hops. Wow this is one bitter beer but balanced well with the sweet malts but still a showcase for the hops. Not overly sweet like Port Brewing’s Anniversary Ale but over the top in every conceivable way like Double Crooked Tree. Thick, sweet, syrupy, bitter, hints of anise and licorice with marmaladey sweetness and severe hop bitterness. Hard to top this from an extreme point of view and I could imagine aging would do this no harm at all.
