COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

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.

beerfest5 (1125) - 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.

daje (2033) - 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.

TET (1542) - FINLAND - FEB 18, 2014
BBE 31.3.2014, only one month to expiry date. Orange brown beer without head, only white bubbles. The nose is sweet and fructose, tropical fruits, peaches, sitrusfruits, some caramell. Taste is strongly sweet, tropical fruits and caramell. After beginning the bitterness starts to evolve, mouth dries and taste turns to piney, slightly citrusfruity and then in the end is strongly pine needled. No carbonation, almost full bodied, not heavy. Not very good condition but still quite nice even this old. Strongly sweet DIPA, the bitterness is there after beginning.

Bottle to tulip Grapefruit, pine, and caramel; a little boozy too. Clear deep amber with plenty of small bubbles, but no head. Caramel, pine, straw and huge long lasting bitterness. This is quite the beer and not like other English IPAs I've had to date.

GraveAtSea (137) - Lublin, POLAND - NOV 20, 2013
Bottle: Cloudy amber-orange color. Small head, disappear quickly. Lovely aroma, very intense. Fresh mixture of oranges, pines, resins, tangerines, citrus, lychees, yellow apples - very nice. Taste is sweet and bitter. Mainly citrus, mango, oranges, topical fruits and hoppy liqueur. Very balanced, multidimensional and powerfull. Long bitter and warming finish. Low carbonation with full body. Thick and oily texture. Great combination of Barley Wine and IIPA.
