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.

Pours amber brown with a decent white head. Nose is spicy, citrus hops, pomegranate, some toffee cookies. More spicy, tangy citrus hops in the mouth, plenty of bitterness nicely balanced with a sweet toffee-like malt character. A good, full-flavored imp ipa.

DruncanVeasey (6950) - NUNEATON, Top 24, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2010
Bottle from Darts Farm, Topsham, Devon. Been after this one for a while. Walloping sweet, pungent aroma right up there with the DFH IPAs and Mikkeller single hop stuff; grapefruit juice, Jelly Tots, lemon sherbets, pepper and (unlike those beers), more than a hint of Feta cheese on the turn- the whole lot honeyed enticingly with the sweetness of freshly crushed malt and raisiny, dripping bitterness of 80% Lindt. Pours deep, glowy orange propping up a thick cream head. Massive alcohol warm and bitterness with the first sip requiring a slight readjustment of the senses...there, that’s done it...deep nutty and biscuity malts supporting a great swaying, hallucinogenic canopy of flowers, resins, pine, confectionary, furniture, Rowntree’s jellies..all the things that hopheads love, and more. Evil lemon mousse palate sliding down like milkshake. The more beers I drink the more I big up the genuinely rare (in the qualitative, not the quantitative sense), and this is it: the best IPA or DIPA, or whatever you want to call it, I’m aware of in England right now. Is it too late to ditch Carlsberg and make this the official beer of England’s 2010 campaign? Sorry, just drifted into a parallel universe...

Marko (3788) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 12, 2010
Draught? Cask? at Pikkulintu, shared with SaintMatty. Poured a hazy dark amber-red body. Some fruity hopiness and chewy maltiness in the taste. Full orangey taste, dry and acidic. Light bitter hoppy finish. Some nice peach also but overall just a touch too dry and acidic for its own good. Still, it gets better later on.

Intriguing nose with notes of grapefruit, musk sticks and dirty socks. Pours a slightly cloudy copper with a good, persistant head. Then you taste it - what a blinder! A huge, big, fat IPA with tons of hoppy goodness in perfect harmony with a sweet, candy malt; the whole underpinned brilliantly with a good hefty kick of alcohol that tastes rich and estery but in no way cloying or astringent. The finish is long and incredibly moreish. I almost wish it was less alcoholic so I could drinkl more of it. A winner.

rmasa (324) - Vantaa, FINLAND - APR 8, 2010
Hazy amber color, big white head; aroma is sweet fruity, of hops and hints of caramel; quite full-bodied and smooth; flavor is quite sweet of caramel and fruits with moderate bitterness in the finish.

SilkTork (5121) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2010
Gravity cask at Dover Beer Festival. Warm and confident. Though a little bit syrupy and cloying this is a good balance of malt and hops. A fairly predictable beer - it uses a lot of hops and malt, and the result is what you’d expect - though well made and tasty enough to be enjoyable. Slight citric burn after a while.

planky84 (1878) - , Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2010
Bottle from beermerchants.com. Amber-brown pour with a huge off white head that lasts for ages. Very nice, fruity aroma. Quite different to anything i’ve sampled recently. There’s definately some peaches, mangoes, strawberries, pineapple in there. A veritible fruit salad of a nose. Great lacing. Flavours of chocolate, caramel, citrus, summer fruits. Lots of tastes in there that shouldn’t work together but by jiminy they do! Friuty-hoppy mouthfeel. Finishes pleasantly hop heavy with a little sweetness. Very well balanced, well constructed Double IPA. Moor of this please! (sorry).

Cask Stillage at NWAF The Venue, Miles Platting 22/01/2010 Big hop aroma. Amber coloured hoppy floral and strong in alcohol. A little sweet on the palate initially. Warming and slightly bitter malt finish.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2010 A big, bitter, brutal British barley wine/imperial IPA. Loads of English hops, lots of fruit, tongue-twisting bitterness, earthy, full bodied, belly warming. Only loses out on points because it’s not massively drinkable. Share it, it’s more fun that way.

Enjoyable highly hoppy barleywine to me, very drinkable. Pours light brown with lasting head. Good balanced aromas. Good balance for DIPA style. Worth seeking out, very drinkable.Above average mouthfeel.
