On tap at the BeerTemple. Murky brown amber pour with super lacy white head. Aroma is really hoppy, spicy, citrusy C-hops, lots of boozy malty aromas as well. Taste is intense, really hoppy but not super bitter, not unlike a strong American barleywine. Palate is rich and creamy, completely coats the palate with hop resin. Better than I expected.

On tap @ BeerTemple. Muddy brown/orange with a medium creamy beige head and heavy lacing. Aroma is super hoppy with leafy hops, caramel and floral presence. Taste is heavily bitter and the bitterness is lasting forever... there’s also a lot of caramel, pine and floral presence. Full bodied. Moderate carbonation. Super oily mouthfeel. It’s more a Barley Wine than a Double IPA and this point. Way too sticky for my liking. I don’t see the point of making a beer with so much bitterness. Very straightforward too and total lack of balance.

Barwa: głęboko miedziana, lekko zmętniona. Piana beżowa, obfita, drobno pęcherzykowa, utrzymująca się i ładnie oblepiająca szkło. Wzorowo. Aromat: chmiel do potęgi. Niestety jest on bardziej granulkowy, zielony, jedynie z naleciałościami żywicznymi czy cytrusowymi oraz słodowością. Do tego zdecydowana alkoholowość. Smak: słodowy (herbatnikowy), dosyć słodki, gęsty i pełny. Wyraźna chmielowa kontra, ale goryczka nie tak wysoka, jak można się było spodziewać i trochę zalegająca. Do tego alkoholowa, rozgrzewająca końcówka i nieco karmelowy posmak na finiszu.

Pours a very murky burnt orange with big head that borders on khaki with great retention and lacing. Aroma is surprisingly not all hops. For sure there are citrus and pine aromas but also a nice caramel and bread crust from the malt. Taste also has some caramel and bready sweetness but it’s still the piney and citrus hop flavors that dominate and shine. The resiny bitterness is big but not overwhelming. It is rounded but does longer and build. A little alcohol flavor is present and welcome. Finishes dry and bitter. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. I was prepared to write this off as gimmicky but it was very enjoyable and flavorful while also being borderline drinkable.

330 ml bottle from Redmonds. Dark, murky amber, creamy off white head. Loads of spruce pine in the nose. Flavour is sweet for a second, then eye watering bitterness, followed by more big malt sweetness. There’s a nice bitter hop oil residue in the finish. Big body, not too much fizziness. Lovely gear.

Behoorlijk intense ipa. De geur van honing en citrus springt als het ware uit het glas, maar het geheel blijft heerlijk rond. Een topper.

A very intense IPA, dark orange color. Lots of hops, in both the head and body. Have to drink very slowly or it’s almost too sweet. Quite good buy too expensive.

jerd16 (187) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2014
Pours hazelnut with beige lasting spongy head. Thick lacing. Extremely piney on the nose. Unsuprisingly hoppy. Pine clouds a very subtle grapefruit and sweet malt. Assessing the fundamentals would lead to a vastly different rating. It’s a little too sweet at the front and in an instant it becomes heavily bitter. So I choose to rate it as a novelty. In that regard it deserves acclaim. The bottle I had was >3mths old and still it retained some hop-flavor and the bitterness is so astringent, its like sucking on an aspirin tablet. Long after the nectar has glided down the oesophagus, its bitter essence lingers. Growing steadily in ferocity it beats all other flavors into submission. Suprisingly, despite it being a genuine hop-bomb it is incredibly drinkable and smooth on the palate. Dry in the finish. This really isn’t so much a beer. Its an experience.

Oklar, brun-orange med ett riktigt orange skum. Doft: Massvis och otroligt mycket färsk humle, gräs, barr. Smak: Samma som doft typ. Bra eller bara extrem? Tror båda.
