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.

fidelis83 (2125) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - JUL 28, 2013
Hazy old gold pour that turns to a nice, peach and bright amber when held to light, with a thin off white head that has great retention and leaves decent lacing. Aroma is full of caramel, burnt sugar and sweet citrus, some tropical and pine, toast and sweet malt, just a hint of toffee. Flavor is caramel, toast, muted biscuit and fruity esters quickly blown out of the water by sweet malt and sweet and bitter citrus, something very much citrus rind-like, probably hops, but I wouldn’t be surprised to find grapefruit or orange rind in the recipe, syrupy floral notes and sweet hay. This thing is really just full of sweet and bitter malt, fruit and hop notes fighting it out in a tug of war that has a different winner every second. Palate is medium to heavy body, with a slick and chewy entry, light, blanketing and sharp carbonation and dry, slightly puckering but still somewhat slick and sticky finish. Good stuff, but pretty boozy and a little astringent in the finish, the all over the place, extreme sweet to bitter and back balance grows fatiguing.

HammerTroll (704) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 2, 2015
Hazy yellow color, small white head. Really poor appearance for a style. Bready aroma, hops, fruits, some pine. Sweet taste, sugary, alcohol is nowhere to be seen. Full body, soft carbonation with sweet finish.

hens (583) - Tallinn, Estonia, ESTONIA - MAY 1, 2015
0.355L bottle. Clear golden body with massive creamy head. Stays. Rotten potato and dog urine aroma. Sweet little s**t :) Raisin soup? Some clever spices kills alcohol taste. Floral, soy and woman perfume flavours. Some half hard, bitter-spiced finish. Something new for me.

minihame2 (258) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 1, 2015
Hazy yellow, brownish body. Lively with a small white head. Strong malty aroma, syrup and brown sugar. Taste is smooth but slightly bitter at first with some sweetness. Mouthfeel is smooth, medium carbonation. It’s a very typical DIPA in my opinion, good if you enjoy the style but if you do, most likely not surprisingly a lot.

lillunken (35) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - APR 29, 2015
Tapp på norrlands, Uppsala. Söt doft med lite humle bakom. Väldigt söt smak, ganska besk (men inte så besk för en dipa). Ganska trögflytande. Sötman dominerar. Helt ok (jag gillar söta öl).

Tognetta (197) - Campinas, BRAZIL - APR 27, 2015
Alaranjada, levemente turva, espuma branca cremosa, com lacing irregular, de média duração. Aroma lupulado intenso, citrica, menos alcoolica do que o esperado, adocicada. Paladar bastante doce, amargor médio. O dulçor permanece carregado no aftertaste, escondo até parte da intensidade do amargor do lupulo. Lá pelos ultimos goles, algumas notas amadeiradas, caramelo. Ficou abaixo da expectativa.

scotchzombie (401) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - APR 24, 2015
Pours hazy, bubbly and brown-orange amber, with a huge, foamy, persistent white head. Aroma is sweet caramel and candied citrus fruit with a touch of pine. Pungent. Taste is unique right off the bat. Initially following the aroma, with caramel and citrus sweetness, there is a quick shift to backing piney bitterness and groovy booze. This is a really well-done DIPA, with damn good balance.

eruizgarcia (240) - - APR 24, 2015
Very sweet and malty upfront, fruity and nutty. A little bit of a funky smell and a sour finish. Pleasant medium palate, a little syrupy. Good sipping beer at first, hides the alcohol well. The sweetness and sour aftertaste grow heavy after a while. I almost didn’t finish it.

BlazerT (176) - POLAND - APR 22, 2015
Bottle. Burnt orange with small, white head. Aroma of sweet liquor loaded with fruits (peach, tropical fruits). Candy-like taste, honey flavours, very very close to barley wine. Medium to high bitterness, well recognizable from the middle of degustation. Full body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, finish is long and bitter. In general sweet malts loaded IIPA with nice bitter finish, the alcohol is well hidden. Something between sweet IIPA and barley wine.
