thirstyrabbit (1109) - Tallinn, - NOV 21, 2012
375ml bottle, wrapped in paper. Opaque orange amber body with a tall steady head. Arom has lots of fir needle type of hops. Oily and sticky mouthfeel. Taste starts sweet but a second later this first impression is crushed by a bitter wave of resiny hoppiness. This one (unlike the Ultramate version) almost has enough backbone to support all of its crazy bitterness. Almost, but still not quite enough. Itís still a hop overkill. If I had another bottle of this I would blend it with some random pale lager to see if I can make normal beer out of them.

aleksander9 (480) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 29, 2014
-short review- golden with nice white head. Aroma is not to overpowering, grapefruit, citrus and some caramel. Slick palate. Insane long dry grassy hop finish. Overall: interesting. Aftertaste is insane.

Beerdedone (2669) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 28, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hazy dark amber with a medium off-white head. Aroma was really hoppy with pine, citrus, caramel and grapefruit. Flavor was very bitter and sweet with caramel, pine, grapefruit, grass and citrus rind.

tania_nexust (209) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2014
Draught keg at William IV (Brodieís). Intense resiny aromas with some sweet & sticky caramel in the backgrounds. Mouth-puckeringly bitter and astringent resin taste, with some sugary hint of over-ripe mango leaving a sweeter finish. Then starts again with every mouthful. Pretty intense beer but still drinkable if you have the bitterness tolerance to get over the first hit.

Criz (111) - - OCT 17, 2014
On tap at Sergioís World of Beer. Pours a super thick with a thick off white head that completely laces the glass. Murky reddish amber in color. Nose is slightly nutty, with a resinous scent that dominates. Flavors of pine, toffee, and a huge bitter hop finish. Mouthfeel is very thick and syrupy. Try this if you can.

Saeglopur (375) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - OCT 12, 2014
Bottle from AmmersinO, Vienna
Suprisingly dark red, hazy body, with a big, creamy, stable, beige head, that sticks to the glass a lot.
Aroma of citrus, red berries, peach and other stone fruits, some tropical fruits, caramel, tea.
Taste with about the same aromas, some additional roasty notes and the bitterness soon coming through.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with a medium carbonation and in the finish the dry bitterness dominates and lasts forever, but there is also some roastiness, citrus, berries, stone fruits and a slight alcohol warmth.

Interesting and pretty unique. As expected with a strong bitterness, but well balanced by pleasant berries and stone fruits, caramel malts and even some roastyness. A heavy beer though that I canít drink much, not only because of the strong bitterness, it is also pretty filling.

Didnít get as much hop flavour or aroma as i thought i would from this beer. A strange kind of earthy, whiskey style flavour is present. It is very bitter but it feels like it lacks in late hop additions. I would get an Evil Twin Molotov Cocktail if you wanít to experience an intense imperial IPA that takes hop flavour and aroma to the extreme.

Great IPA if you want to test your limits on hops this is the one you should try. If you are tasting more tgen 1 beer make this one the last, your palate will be affected

"looks slightly darker than the avg IIPA. Huge hop aroma, but some malt does come through as well. feel is thick, not quite sticky. flavor bitter and citrus, but no more than a 100 ibu beer. very good, but not worth the price tag. one and done for this bad boy."
