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.

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.

bottle @ Party Source / Bellevue KY --- Hazy bright medium amber, generous, frothy, 1" beige head that stays firm, a wall of lace with little gaps. Aroma of pine hop and malt. Taste is strong caramel malt that adds pine hops on the swallow, which, in this brew, have no chance - sweet malt rushes right on to an in-your-face alcohol warmed finish. Pretty big brew - drink slowly. I’m enjoying mine in a four ounce taster (a little at a time).

nuplastikk (4807) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 22, 2015
12oz bottle. Unfiltered orange-tan body. Steady thin off-white head. Resinous, almost rubbery aroma. Rich, sweet, sticky..not unlike Devil Dancer. Natural flavors? Hyper bold, this is a true IIIPA. Sugary and thick, honey porridge with massive hop tones. OK, more drinkable than DD, but not overly impressive. Has some fuesal alcohol notes. Almost has some nice juicy hop tones too. Sticky dank depth.

CraftBeerNick (1048) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2015
Tap at Munich Tap House, 19th February 15. Full on sweet, boozy beer, not quite as bad as I expected, but still too sweet to enjoy in any quantity for my palate, need more bitterness. OK, but ambitious for a DIPA at this ABV

Une très bonne IPA bien houblonnée et avec une bonne longueur en bouche; seul bémol le goût de l?alcool est trop prononcé et gâche un peu le goût tout en rehaussant l?amertume. A réserver au réconfort après l’effort dans le froid hivernal.

On tap at Cooper's tavern. Bright orange with thick white head. Strong hop aroma of pine, mango, sweet fruit, and the like. Taste is similar with some thick resiny qualities, boozy finish. This is hops all around, great if you are into that sort of thing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a yhick orangish/gold with a white head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of sweet citrus with a bit of grass and a pretty strong dose of sweet grains. Flavor has a good amount of sweet grains and sweet fruits with some citrus and syrupy resin as well as a boozy kick. I did not check the ABV until after my 1st sip when I knew this was packed with a lot of alcohol. I really felt this one!

Andrus86 (99) - Busselton, WA, AUSTRALIA - FEB 16, 2015
TAP. Poured a cloudy orange with thin white head. The nose was caramel malt with a dirty/boozy funk to it. Sweet malty caramel up front, finishing with a hoppy back end, ABV is hidden well until the last few mouthfuls. Sourced Meat People Dunsborough

Hazy beer with a head which disippated very quickly. A lot of grapefruit in the aroma and it smells as strong as it is. Tastes very strong too, with the alcoholic flavour almost overpowering the fruit and the hops. It’s very bitter but the aftertaste is on the cusp of being sickly. It’s nice but the strong taste of alcohol and the slight sickliness of the fruit almost spoils it for me.

ulises77 (11) - México D.F., MEXICO - FEB 13, 2015
Pours a white thin head and a hazy pale orange color. Smells a combination between citrus fruits cider and sweet malt. At first there is a hint of sweet crystal malt and at the end you can feel the bitter bomb of the hops in a heavy after taste, well balanced. This beer has a full body but its very drinkable, just to enjoy slowly. An interesting beer that sneak the high volume alcohol very well in a bittersweet taste.
