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 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 (10155) - 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.

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.

Bottle. Orange, mango malt and grapefruit peel/pine aroma. Hazy golden yellow with nice head. Very sweet tangerine/peach malt and moderately bitter grapefruit peel/pine flavor. Cloyingly sweet.

tryonqc (20) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 12, 2014
Good carb. Too much sweetness for the style. Alcohol is so present it is too much. Bitter finish, but not enough in the nose to hide the smell of alcohol. Drank it a few months old, will probably get better with age since it is more like a bitter barley wine.

Sevenlee (1298) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - AUG 12, 2014
Pours a clear golden orange colour with a white head. Aroma is malt, fruit, pine, citrus and a bucket load of hops. Taste is medium sweet of fruit leading to a huge bitter finish.

Patrickctenchi (3578) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - AUG 11, 2014
Bottle: Hazed, yellow-amber with a short, off-white head. Fruit nectat, dough, tomato aroma. Taste is sweet, spicy fruit, caramel malt.. Raisin, tropical...very apparent pepper and alcohol. Big, chewy, and complex.

jh773 (110) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Golden orange with plenty of carbonation. Aroma fills the air as soon as it’s poured -- sweet candied fruits, caramel, hints of bread, dark fruits. Taste is a little boozy and quite sweet, lots of citrus notes; very thick, almost syrupy, and lingers on the palate a good bit. It’s not cloying, though. Thick body cut by some fizz.

Bottle. Pours. Cloudy hazy orange color with no head. Sweet tasting with the booze well hidden. Very different and flavorful 2xipa
