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.

Pours hazy orange with not much head. Thick, oily, fruity and boozy. pretty good apart from the in your face alcohol taste which is a bit unpleasant... I think this has been turned up just a notch too far.

Hazy golden, with a foamy off-white head. Sweet, malty aroma with faint floral notes. Taste is sweet, with citrus flavours. Full bodied, thick and oily texture. Warm and boozy. Soft carbonation, finishes lingering, floral. Intense, but enjoyable.

Au nez : l’alcool ne passe pas inaperçu. Il est même assez agressif au tout premier abord. On trouve un fond orangé très présent, un peu de litchi qui a du mal à se détacher des notes éthyliques. À laisser reposer, on commence à trouver au milieu des agrumes des notes tropicales. La bouche fait péter littéralement une orange amère absolument impressionnante. La présence de l’alcool qui décidément perdure donne un sacré caractère au tout sans pour autant offrir une palette extraordinaire. Une fois que l’alcool se calme, on trouve une bière aux côtés assez nobles, pas d’une grande complexité mais très équilibrée et nous d’agrumes très présentes et agréables. On note également une sacrée épaisseur très agréable.

Hazy orange, with a very small white head. Aroma of citrus. Taste gets the alcohol strongly, grapefruit, marmelade, hops. Medium bitter, boozy, medium bodied and with low carbonation. Great, and strong, ale!

On tap at The Reservoir, Waterbury, VT. This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a burnt hazy ruddy off to dark orange almost brown color with a one finger white foamy head that quickly dissipated. Lacing was here and there. The smell starts off with some sweet blueberry. Light citrus and tropical fruits slide in underneath to keep it fairly sweet. Bitterness seems a bit lower. And just as I suspected, the flavor has the bitterness is pretty low as well. The rest is pretty much the same as the aroma with a little bit of creamy almost vanilla and a sly little bit of breadiness. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a decent sipping feel about it. Carbonation felt good with a nice blueberry creaminess smoothing out on my tongue. Overall, okay, I get it now, I think. Yeah, I’m pretty sure this is only my second DIPA I’ve ever had that I actually get the "smooth to creamy" feature on my tongue. It felt great. I’d have this again.

Stoned99 (840) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 24, 2016
(old) Bottle from Craft Beer Cellar... No date on the bottle but this is probably not fresh. Aroma: huge biscuit malt aroma, caramel and some really far hints of citrus. App: hazy copper, medium white head, great lacing. Lots of hops in suspension even though this bottle has been in the fridge for a week and hasn’t been shacked since then. Taste and palate: the mouth is much better and a tad more fruity. This is resinous, really big, light to medium sweetness, the finish is fruity alcohol warming and slightly bitter. Overall: didn’t enjoy much the nose. Like that it:d more fruity in mouth and that it’s strong which makes it stand out. Additional point given for the originality.

cokolwiek11 (241) - POLAND - JAN 21, 2016
Dark orange beer, minimal white head. A lot of stuff floating inside. Aroma: Citrus, some resin, sweet orange, persimmon fruit, caramely syrup, minimal alcoholy note taste: huge sweet, big bitter, with caramely syrup, very sweet tropical fruits, and grapefruity- resiny bitter. Palate: full body, sticky, thick, alcohol strongly warming up but not present in taste. Overall: Heavy, agressive, tasty, altough not particularly fresh (bottled on 211.15, so it has almost half of year). At this point in time hops are not that present. I wish to try it fresher.

Appropriate name actually, as this is an assault on your palette. As the name implies, it’s a boozy, heavy, oily...the viscosity is like a medium weight oil. Not quite cough syrup, but close.

Estebanik (450) - Lublin, POLAND - JAN 13, 2016
Całkiem ładna, drobna, choć raczej szybko opadająca piana. Trochę dużo syfu pływa w tym piwie w postaci chmielin, czy tam innych drobin. Aromat bardzo słodki, choć niezbyt intensywny. Tak czy inaczej przyjemny - dominują owoce tropikalne z marakują, czy morelą na czele. W smaku wyczuwalne nachmielenie, jednak dominuje syropowata, zalepiająca słodowość. Bardzo gęste w odczuciu. Syropowaty,dłuuuugi, słodki aftertaste hamuje zapędy goryczki. Alkohol niestety jak najbardziej odczuwalny. Nie jest jakiś rozpuszczalnikowy, ani nic w tym guście, ale i tak psuje przyjemność z degustacji. Spodziewałem się więcej wrażeń.

bubbleflubber (2114) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JAN 5, 2016
Pours a deep orange into the glass with a light soapy head that diminishes to a tiny ring cap that leaves trace lacing. The nose is orange rind/peel/zest and pine. Flavors are of candied orange, alcohol, peppering piney bitters, and finish with an alcohol burn that complements the lingering pepper spruce-pine bitterness. The palate is chewy in texture, full-bodied, with a somewhat syrupy-boozy mouthfeel. I do enjoy these candied, high ABV Impy IPAs on occasion. This, honestly, is one of the better examples of that style that I’ve had. A great nightcap sipper, in my humble opinion. Definitely warms one through the bitter cold winter evenings. Hats off!
