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.

SlackerMads (1419) - Greater London, - NOV 19, 2012
Hazy amber with small white head. Aroma is heavy sweet with notes of mango, pineapple, caramel, toffee. Thick mouthfeel. Sweet and oily. Taste is caramel, apricot, mango, marzipan. Warm alcoholic finish. Quite a handfull and watch your back; it will probably sneak up on you.

Strong & sweet with plenty of hops to balance it off. Caramel, pine & wood flow over the tongue. Despite the intense taste, this beer does not taste like 13%. Rated by BrewTom

Berard (266) - Salem, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle. Pours murky orange with thin white head that dissipates. Mild carbonation and hop aroma. Much more of a hop forward flavor than the aroma would indicate. Some complexity with cherry pine flavor. A bit boozy. Reminds me of dfh120. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Christopsy (95) - SCOTLAND - JUL 11, 2014
On tap at BrewDog Dundee. Pours copper with a nice creamy white head. Body was thick and full. Smells of fruit and a malty sweetness. Tastes, well amazing. So complex, fruity, sweet, and even citus. I was blown away!

(bottle - 12 oz) Copper pour with a thin white head. Big citrus aroma with some very light hops underneath. Big malt bomb flavor with almost no bitterness whatsoever. Lots of citrus.

Bacterial (1378) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JUL 3, 2014
Nice clear amber pour with a white head. Big hops and a big malt character. Reminiscent of a hoppy barley wine, but somehow more drinkable. Alcohol is hardly noticeable. Really nice.

CacheManyHose (155) - HONG KONG - JUL 2, 2014
From Craftissimo. Orangey amber with small watery white head. Smells quite sweet at first - malt, pineapple and orange. Floral hop in background. Bit of spice, alcohol, vegetal mustiness. Tastes hugely, hugely hoppy (herbal, bitter) but quite spicy and malty/sweet too. Body is medium-full with a nice big oiliness. Hard to fault a beer for being too big when it's this balanced and ambitious, but as impressive as this is, the hoppiness (so overwhelming it's minty/vegetal) is too much for me.

HKdIPA (199) - HONG KONG - JUL 2, 2014
Bottle from Craftissimo at home. Hazy deep amber pour - nice. Aroma is really appealing - big juicy grapefruit and pineapple; the high alcohol is apparent too. Taste is hops explosion - the sort of vegetal taste that seems to come from very high alcohol/big DIPAs. More balanced in this but still wish it didn't have that herbaceous tinge. Very sweet and malty finish with a lasting booziness.

Niksko (307) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 2, 2014
Pours a hazy golden amber with just a smattering of bubbly white head. Nose is very sharp, bright grapefruit, a little pineapple, some caramel. There are an obscene about of hops in here. Flavor starts off with some orange marmalade, grapefruit peel, lemon, a bit of pine. The finish is a little sticky and sweet, very bitter (even for my palate), lots of grapefruit. Body is fairly heavy with a sticky, dense mouthfeel that coats your lips.

suurjuust (962) - ESTONIA - JUL 1, 2014
Shared by martjoobolut, thanks! Hazy orange, off-white head. Nose is caramel, malt, citrus, hops. Flavor is thick malty sweetness, grapefruit, oranges, pine. Powerful hoppy bitter hit in the finish along with a generous amount of warm booze. Thick and heavy, beyond a DIPA.
