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.

from Erzbierschof - pours a cloudy dark orange beer under a long lasting white foam; hoppy aroma of cream, marzipan, honey and apricots; full-bodied, sticky palate with some astringency; pretty effervescent and tasty; hugely bitter and pretty dry; long fruity hoppy finish with a never ending bitterness

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.

ljthiessen (901) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 26, 2015
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 (303) - 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.

Pours orange peel like clear, or better because is unfiltered, a bit hazy, with foamy white head. visually low carbonation with slow up rising bubbles. Aroma is one of the best parts: without note of an alcohol, and with very intense aroma of hops, with notes of tropical fruits, Lychee, Papaya, pineapple, mango, etc. Some malts are detectable in the background. Flavor is hoppy, with notes of tropical fruits, which I mentioned in aroma. Hop bitterness is high, but at the same time even malt sweetness. that mean, that malt flavor is a little too high and too Barley wine - like. Finish is dry, sweet, with smooth alcohol warmth. Body is medium smooth, carbonation is moderate medium.
