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.

ACD (580) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUN 2, 2013
66cl bottle from Drinkstore, Dublin. Pours watery orange with zero head - looks a bit of a mess. Aroma is deep orange, caramel, tangerine, mango, peach, and a bit of booze. Taste gives lots of orange peel, mango, grapefruit, pineapple, booze, sweet caramel, woody notes, pine resin. Lots of lingering grapefruit bitterness and resinous oily notes. Thin-ish mouthfeel - no carb. This is a big beer - plenty of flavour - more of a massively hopped barleywine than a typical DIPA, but who cares about 'style' when it's as delicious as this. Would've loved a bit more carbonation to lift it, but that's the only real criticism.

allmyvinyl (2208) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 2, 2013
Keg at the Hanging Bat. Pours hazy amber with almost no head. Aroma is tropical fruits and dried fruit, a little caramel. This is repeated on the taste. Good finish, nice.

hawthorne00 (2261) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 23, 2013
Bottle. Clear amber with pretty much no head. aroma of toffee, some raisins, oranges. Oily, very low carbonation. Taste has toffee, kumquat + grapefruit marmalade, some sherry, dried fruit, light floral notes. Firm bitterness, tending towards dry at the end. Rather disappointing, like a very staid barley wine. Perhaps a dud bottle.

Ferris (2041) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 5, 2013
Bottle - Earthy, spicy and tropical fruits. Very unusual nose and very rich. Deep clear copper with no head. Almost like a liquor with its oily body and rich flavors. The earthy hops are there in the background with the alcohol up front, but in an absurdly balanced fashion. There is an astringency but it comes with the alcohol and little to no bitterness. Overall, I will try this again as it is unusual and I find something interesting in every sip. Not a sessionalble beer but something to have in a snifter after dessert.

Meilby (6459) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 25, 2013
Bottle 660ml @ Christianssand Brygghus, Kristiansand
Pours clear amber with a small off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, citrus, grape, peach and grass. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with a warm, caramel and fruity finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat.

Beer4000 (4328) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 9, 2013
660 ml bottle @ Christianssand brygghus Quite hazy reddish orange body with a small off/White head. Really nice aroma of tropical fruit, apricot, some dry fruit and caramel malt. Flavor is very sweet, caramel malt, dry fruit, marmalade, apricot and moderate bitterness. I assume this beer might be bitter than it feels, but this is camouflaged by the sweetness and alcohol. The alcohol by the way is present but well hidden, you feel it more than you taste it. Full body, almost sticky after a while, and a long aftertaste with more malt than hops. I guess this is a great beer, but just too sweet for me.

nilsas (982) - Bryne, NORWAY - FEB 22, 2013
Noe grumsete utseende. God søtlig lukt. God på smak og gir en god ettersmak. Ikke noe særlig munnfølelse. Totalt sett et godt øl som kan prøves om man er glad i ipa.

God og lang ettersmak på denne. Bitter og fyldig med ravgul farve. Fruktig og lettdrukket.

reebtogi (3838) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 10, 2013
660ml bottle pours a copper color with a small white head that leaves no lacing behind. Aroma is caramel and lighter fruits with some grapefruit hops. Taste is a bold grapefruit hop bitterness with some tropical fruit and caramel malty sweetness and a hint of alcohol with a grainy finish. Medium to heavy body with mild carbonation. Overall, this is like a hoppy barley wine and I really enjoyed sampling this one.

laiti (4952) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 29, 2013
Draught @ O’Hara’s Freehouse. Rated on 29.01.2010
Aroma is somewhat sweet with hops, exotic fruits and caramel. Flavour is sweet with American hops, exotic fruits, caramel, some resiny malt and biscuits. Quite American – and too sweet for me.
