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 (2270) - 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.

From bottle. Pours golden, almost clear, with medium, white head. Caramel, pine, biscuits, wood, grass, vegetables, sweet, alcohol. Medium carbonation, full body, warming, real bitter. I think it wasn’t too fresh, despite that, still extreme.

weordie (688) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2016
Ours burnt orange with a big head but too much sediment. A huge malty, caramel aroma is followed by a subtle sweet mango. Huge malty, caramel flavour with an alcohol burn and sweet tropical fruits. A nice beer but it’ll need sipped.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

buddybutch (18) - Nantes, FRANCE - MAY 1, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2016 From tap. What a bomb! The perfect mix between alcohol, malt and hop. It is also very fruity(maybe apricot) and sweet. Very very hopy. But beware, a glass of 25cl is enough to surrender your driving licence

weihenweizen (2894) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - APR 26, 2016
Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle poured into a glass. Clear light orange with small white head. Aroma is grapefruit hops, medium body, lower carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is grapefruit hops, strong malt backbone, and bitter finish.

FraekkeFyr87 (269) - - APR 19, 2016
The aroma is full of hops, dried fruits, caramel, sugar, apricot and prunes. Very reminiscent of barley wine, probably because of the high alcohol percentage. The color is dark caramel. The taste is full of hops, dried fruits, sugar and caramel. The alcohol is very present but I don’t mind. Nice beer!

Echon (283) - Århus, DENMARK - APR 16, 2016
UPDATED: APR 17, 2016 An amber full-bodied ale, with a hop and yeast aroma. Nothing particular for a DIPA. Overwhelming pungent flavour of hops and alcohol, and a very sweet and very bitter taste. Bottom line: the first few sips are good, but the more-is-more over the top approach completely ruins any semblance of balance, and the sweetness and alcohol soon become cloying. Of course, I doubt balance was ever taken into consideration when this recipe was put together, but I just want to point out that you may not enjoy more than 5 cl of this.
