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.

From tap at MikkellerBar. Pours clear and golden orange with a small white head. Aroma is pinewood and dry grapefruity to leathery hoppy. Thick malty, dense almost syrupy sweet and solid hoppy. Thick pinewood and dry grapefruity flavoured hoppy. Good balance between hops and sweet, light to the sweet site. Thick mouthfeel/fullbodied. Bitter, alcohol and dense hoppy finish. Ends dry and lasting dense hops fruity. Tasty but a bit too heavy for me, more a triple IPA than double.

Ungstrup (29484) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 9, 2011
Draft. A hazy dark golden beer with a yellowish head. The aroma has notes hops, lemons, and over ripe peaches. The flavor is sweet with notes of peaches, yellow plums, hops, lemons, a bit of malt, leading to a very bitter finish. The alcohol tickles the tongue lightly.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 7, 2011
On tap. Pours a hazy golden with a white and lacing head. Intense hop aroma - almost herbal, but no distinct hop stand out really. Very rich body, sweet malts, sweet fruitiness again with this herbal hoppiness - this is what I usually call hop soup. Roaring booze in the finish with plenty of hop kick - but lacking focus in the hop bill. Normally Double IPA’s should be consumed fresh, but I actually think it would be fun to try this when things have mellowed down a bit. 070811

joergen (21081) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 7, 2011
Draught at Mikkeller Bar. Hazy golden coloured with a small white head. Fruity aroma of hops, pine needles, caramel, candies and grape fruits. Sweet and fruity flavour of hops, candies, alcohol and grape fruits with notes of pine needles and cardemomme. Warming alcoholic and dry hoppy finish. Too alcoholic for me.

Draught@Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen (Aug 8th, 2011). Last beer during my 6 hour "stop" at Copenhagen after GBBF etc. Hazy yellowish golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is citrus fruits, some tropical fruits, mild alcohol, some quite strong maltyness carrying it up as well. Flavour is rather much the same in a very pleasant balance. Although very bitter, it’s rather balanced at the same time. And for being 13 % it is surprisingly easy to drink. A did feel rather tipsy going back to the airport though...

Very hazy gold - amber beer. Tidy white head. Smooth and semi dry palate. Obvious alcohol dries it out further. Strong pale malt with obvious grain and more alcohol. A little malt cream. Marmalade and citrus bitter hops. Dry warming finish. It’s okay but there is just not enough flavour for all this obvious alcohol. Drinkable.

fiulijn (14990) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 11, 2012
Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen
Light amber color; medium sized creamy head, persistent. Very nice and deep aroma of fruity hops, with the expected grassy and manure touch; also lightly dusty. Thick and round mouthfeel; strong flavor of toffee and caramel, quite sweet, with a huge bitterness, tons of hop resins and also hop fruitiness, bitter oranges; high alcohol perception too. Tastebuds killer, without grace.
