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.

Hotspur (16) - Nara, - JUN 23, 2012
Golden color with fading head. Funky citrus in the basement aroma. Intense flavor but well balanced. Very very bitter, nice in a snifter at the end of the night but a pint may kill you. Hops are so intense it cover the alcohol burn. A but of sweet syrupyness.

PorterPounder (5489) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Atlanta, Ga. - Hop City - 12 oz bottle. Slightly murky dark orange pour with a very light off- white head. Aroma of fruit cocktail, some brown sugar. Flavor is fruit forward with some canned fruit cocktail, some rock candy-like sweetness, some brown sugar goodness, a touch of cookie dough. Mouthfeel is thick and rich

kevinsenn (1065) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 31, 2014
Bottle from Jane’s Beer Store, Mountain View. Surprisingly unboozy aroma of fruit, pine, and resin. Beers like this make you distrust the abv on the bottle. Boozy but surprisingly smooth. Very bitter finish. Taste is generally sweet with great juicy citrus bite.

dalfaro86 (260) - Mexico City, MEXICO - AUG 28, 2014
Pours a cloudy dark amber brew with a big white head with regular to poor retention, aroma is heavy sweet and moderate to heavy bitter with caramel, alcohol, grapefruit and orange, full bodied, flavor is heavy bitter and heavy sweet with a bittersweet finish and a very long and bitter aftertaste. Crazy ipa but too sweet.

Ed5388 (2061) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - AUG 27, 2014
12oz bottle from The Beer Shoppe (Ardmore PA). Pours a cloudy deep orange color with a finger of foamy off white head. Aroma is strong caramel malt, sugary citrus, marzipan, rye spice, and booze. Taste syrupy malt, old citrus skins, rye spices, and pine sap. Can’t make out the date on the bottle, but this doesn’t seem too fresh.

jmgreenuk (4273) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 27, 2014
Bottle at the Beer Temple, Amsterdam. Poured a hazy medium amber with little life. The aroma is woody resin hop, boozy alcohol. The flavour is strong bitter with a boozy alcohol hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. It’s all about the alcohol...completely overpowering. One has to ask why?

kermis (4976) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 27, 2014
Bottle shared at Beer temple. Pours hazy golden orange with a ring off white head. Aroma of grapefruit, citrus, cheesy hops, intense orange. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter. Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation. Too extreme.

JulienHuxley (3020) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - AUG 27, 2014
Bottle shared at BeerTemple with jmgreenuk and kermis. Hazy amber pour with no head. Aroma is hoppy, boozy, really fruity strong booze soaked fruits. Taste is really boozy, intensely hoppy, boozy but without the burn, for a style I don’t appreciate much this is pretty Ok. Palate is rich and warming, with good carbonation. Decent.

freeofthoughts (651) - Raytown, Missouri, USA - AUG 24, 2014
Pours a golden lightly orange yellow with off white fizz. The aroma is rich sweet grains and tropical pineapple hops. The flavor is amazing, Sweet strong malts that go right to your head and a bounty of drying bitter hops that fight for the forefront with tropical mango pineapple citrus flavors. If i was to make a huge iiipa, this would be a model.

bierkoning (10169) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - AUG 20, 2014
Bottle. Grass, candied fruit, alcohol and red berries in the aroma. Alcoholic, perfumed floral flavor with lots of grassy hops and red fruit. Even some smoky notes. Just a bit too extreme.

tomekk1978 (447) - POLAND - AUG 18, 2014
Barwa: głęboko bursztynowa / jasno miedziana. Piana biała / ecru, drobno pęcherzykowa, niewielka ale ładnie oblepiająca szkło. Całość jest gęsta i oleista. Aromat: wyraźnie alkoholowy z akcentami chmielowymi, choć głównie ziołowymi. Na myśl przychodzi również stary chmiel oraz lekki rozpuszczalnik. Smak: pełny, słodki z ... Praktycznie bez chmielowej kontry, niestety. No może niewielka jest, ale z pewnością nie wystarczająca by zrównoważyć tą słodycz. O dziwo alkoholowość nie jest tak duża, jak oczekiwałem, jedynie lekko ogrzewająca przełyk. Bodaj najmocniejsza propozycja z Evil Twin, jaką miałem okazję próbować. Przyjechała aż z Krakowa i wiązałem z nią spore nadzieje. Niestety ten trunek im nie sprostał. Jest to bowiem słodki ulepek, praktycznie bez chmielu i goryczki. Miało być najmocniejszym IPA, jakie piłem, ale znikoma chmielowość praktycznie je przekreśla. Nie wiem ile stało na sklepowej półce (wziąłem ostatnią butelkę), mogę tylko powiedzieć, że u mnie spędziło dwa miesiące. Z przykrością stwierdzam, że chmiel w tym przypadku uleciał. Zarówno w aromacie, jak i goryczce. Szkoda.
