COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Her er den ene halvdel af en ‘Black and Tan’ øl. Ikke hvilken som helst Black and Tan, men den hvor en opblæst, tyktflydende stodder og en tilbagelænet, humlet fyr mødes, og perfekt øl-balance opstår. Bland Yang med Yin, eller nyd denne flabede gode Imperial IPA solo.

Barwa: bursztynowa, wyraźnie zmętniona (choć w dużej mierze to moja wina, bowiem przed nalaniem niechcący poruszyłem butelkę). Piana biała, drobno pęcherzykowa, średniej wielkości, ładnie oblepiająca szkło. [5/5] Aromat: lekko słodowy, słodki oraz alkoholowy i jakby lekko anyżowy. Do tego - na szczęście - chmiele amerykańskie cytrusowo- żywiczne. Smak: zdecydowanie pełny, raczej wytrawny, ze zdecydowaną chmielową kontrą. Goryczka grapefruitowa, z pewnością powyżej średniej, dość przyjemna, w małym stopniu zalegająca. Do tego alkoholowy, nieco rozgrzewający finisz. Tym razem nieco ciekawsza propozycja z Evil Twin, także zakupiona w Żywcu. Nazwa wywodzi się z taoistycznej koncepcji, w której dwie przeciwstawne, ale i uzupełniające się siły są obecne w całym wszechświecie (Yin tj. RIS niebawem będzie degustowany). Na etykiecie mamy informację, iż jest to Taiji IPA czyli "najwyższa ostateczność," w której doszło do podziału na dwie w/w siły. Yang jest przyzwoitym imperialem, choć zabrakło mi tu nieco więcej aromatu chmielowego. Mimo tego pijalność tego piwa jest dość wysoka, a trzeba wziąć pod uwagę dużą dawkę alkoholu. Z tego względu dość szybko uderza do głowy. Warto spróbować, choć dostępność raczej ograniczona.

Extremely enjoyable beer. Good taste with a combination of an aged wine. Coffee or caramel I am not sure to be honest.

On tap @ BrewDog Shepherds Bush. Dark amber or light brown: take your pick. Whisky/port aroma, blackberries and plastic. Taste is not particularly great I am afraid. A plasticy bitter/sour with an unfortunate aftertaste. This is not Evil Twin’s finest hour.

dliberto (158) - Hampstead, Maryland, USA - AUG 1, 2014
Poured from the bottle into a snifter. Pours a murky copper with a small white head. Aroma is caramel, licorice, dark fruits, and citrus. Taste is sweet on the tongue with the fruits, hops are not overbearing, and a taste of Belgian yeast is present. I also detect an oyster like presence. Thin and oily mouth feel with moderate carbonation. Slight bitterness on the end. It is an interesting beer.

Bottle. Amber clear. Piney resinous hoppy nose with maillardized caramels (sort of cola- like). Full body, sweet caramels, but bitter nuff to clean the palate. Some citrus, bit sharp, grapefruity. Pretty good drinkability, reminds me of bd’s hardcore ipa in that respect. Some berries in the finish. Nice easy (considering the insane abv!) dipa.

Beese (1783) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2014
Draught at BrewDog, Shepherd’s Bush on 23 July. Poured a hazy amber, with a thin white head. Aroma of mango, toffee and floral hops. Malty flavours, with some caramel and grapefruit. Finish was bitter resin, tart fruit and dry grain.

Very hazy burnt orange with a small, not retentive head. The aroma has citrusy and floral hops, strong caramel, and alcohol. The flavor is pretty much the same but I can tell from the hops it has been sitting awhile. There is a boozy caramel that is similar to a barleywine, but finishes dryer than one. There is some strong bitterness and also some residual hop flavors on the finish. Good but I’ll assume better fresher.

Cor dourada escura com espuma levemente amarela de média formação e baixa persistência e pouco lacing; Aroma de caramelo torrado e frutas cítricas amarelas; Sabor de início de caramelo que evolui rapidamente para amargor intenso; Corpo médio e carbonatação média.

Pineapple, grapefruit, citrus. But...totally stomped on by the alcohol. Bitter finish, which would be great if it followed a huge hoppy fruit rush rather than booze, but it doesn’t. Reminds me of drinking Tenants Super as a teenager - a great imperial IPA surely shouldn’t do that.
