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.

superspak (2481) - Michigan, USA - MAY 7, 2014
12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 10/15/2013. Pours very hazy/cloudy bright orange color with a 1 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, apricot, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, floral, grass, light pine, caramel, honey, biscuit, and floral/toasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with bright citrus/tropical hops and moderate caramel/bready malt sweetness; with great strength. Taste of huge grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, apricot, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, floral, grass, pine, caramel, honey, biscuit, and floral/toasted earthiness. Good amount of floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, mango, apricot, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, floral, grass, pine, caramel, honey, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic complexity and balance of juicy citrus/tropical hops and moderate caramel/bready malt sweetness; with huge robustness and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and fairly full bodied; with a smooth, moderately creamy/sticky, and lightly slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is an awesome DIPA! Fantastic complexity and robustness of juicy citrus/tropical hops and moderate caramel/bready malt sweetness; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.

Paradise (5) - Hellerup, DENMARK - MAY 6, 2014 does not count
Slight hazy orange color, nice and malt/hop aroma. Aroma is like a standard IPA with lots of fresh citrus. Taste is bitter, and quite heavy on its body. This is really how every DIPA should be like. Some say its sweet, i dont agree! Alcohol is very well hidden. It actually reminds me of Amager Bryghus’s "Gluttony", just with a little less hops.
