COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Occasional.
Also available bottled at 9.5% abv.
This is one big beer. Forget the ABV, which is just a by-product of the passion. James and Josh from the Queen’s Arms, Corton Denham, and I (hence JJJ) have a shared passion for great beers and were lamenting the lack of true IPAs in the UK. So we decided to brew our own version of heaven. Double IPA was just not good enough - we needed a triple IPA. Triple the gravity, triple the colour, and more than triple the hops. With nearly 700 kg of malt and over 11.5 kg of hops this beer is big in every sense. In fact, it was so big and hoppy that it broke our pump! Deep copper in colour, over the top in aroma and flavour, but somehow still remaining (somewhat) balanced, this beer is not for the faint of heart. And if you don’t like hops, don’t even think about it. But if you do, dare we say this may be the best beer you’ll ever taste. We like it so much that upon racking we decided to make it a permanent part of the range.

Theydon_Bois (9948) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2014
Bottle shared at the RBESG ’14, Grander Tasting @ Moncada, 09/08/14. Lightly hazed golden amber with a moderate off white covering. Nose is earthy hops, barley wine vibes, bitter citric peel, candyfloss. Taste comprises melon, grapefruit, orange pith, spice, earthy hop presence, caramelised sugars. Medium + body, fine carbonation, punchy citricana in the close. Still very drinkable at 3 years old, turning towards a barley wine.

Niall73 (1871) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2014
Bottle shared at the Rate Beer European Summer Gathering on 09/08/14. From brief notes… Dark sticky fruity aroma. Medium to full body. Sweet, though there is also a bit of an odd sour edge to this... A little shabby.

beerfest5 (1163) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUN 27, 2014
660mL bottle, 9.5%abv. Pours an orange amber, tiny white head that dissipates quickly. Big sherbert and grapefruit aroma, can tell from the nose that this is going to be fairly well balanced with caramel and toffee to combat the bitterness, taste equals that along with some booze burn. Carbonation is off a bit, not that I want too much but this needs a bit more, can make the case that it too closely resembles a Barleywine with this little carbonation. Finish is pure hoppy bitterness with booze burn.

(draught) pours a clear deep amber colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of caramel, raisins and strawberries, quite resinous, with a hint of mint and peaches. flavour is heavy caramel, with some hints of oranges, grass, roasted malts and a light-bitter finish. full-bodied with soft carbonation.

daje (2609) - NORWAY - MAR 4, 2014
On tap at Øltorget Mathallen, september 3rd 2013. Hazy dark orange body, foamy offwhite head. Aroma of tropical fruit, strawberry, caramel malt. Taste is quite malty with pineapple and oranges, thick body with a lasting sweetness. Ends on the sweet side with toffee and apricot jam. A bit too sweet for me, but still a nice beer.
