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.

Sigmund (5010) - Tau, NORWAY - NOV 22, 2012
Shared 660 ml bottle conditioned, from Voldby Købmandsgård. ABV is 9.5%. Pours pinkish-red with a low and short-lived white head. Lovely hoppy aroma, notes of tropical fruits, hints of spruce. Massively hoppy flavour throughout, fruity notes, spruce and pine. Quite a bit of residual sweetness. Bitter of course, but not as extreme as some American double IPAs.

Aroma: Much american hops, floral and resin vibes. Pine soap.
Appearance: A dusky rose hip colored brew, an off-grey head with little lacing, but some curtains.
Taste: Sweet brown bread, toffee, tea, orange marmalade and and bitter peel.
Palate: Little carbonation, watery with a small body, a slightly dry finish.
Overall: This beer wants to be big, but do not really deliver.
Note: Bottle at De Klomp tasting. Reviewed 2012-10-20.

brokensail (10741) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 22, 2012
Pours a hazy dark amber color with an off-white head. Smells quite sweet. Lots of toffee, caramel, and tons of pineapple hop aroma. There is some brown sugar and a mild pine note. Sweet citrus, pineapple, and caramel dominate the flavor. Brown sugar, light pine flavor and bitterness on the finish. Not bad, just quite sweet.

imdownthepub (10125) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2012
Cask conditioned at Minehead Beer Fest ’12. Cloudy brown with white head. There is a surprise at the start of this, fruity sweetness, strawberry juice, I never expected that. Then the alcohol pushes through, strong, stripping allowing the fruity hops to develop. Powerful stuff and very involving, heavy man!

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - SEP 7, 2012
Bottle from Great Grog. Pours a deep orangey ruby colour with a thin layer of bubbles. No carbonation to speak of. Lovely bright fruity nose, strawberry jam, pureed apricot, sweet honeyed malts. Nice sweet malt body followed by a massive resinous grapefruit hop hit, seriously fruity. Nice long, clean grapefruit bitter finish. But sadly, absolutely no carbonation. Really flat as a pancake. Slightly spoilt it for me :(

Svesse (6065) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 7, 2012
(Draught at MacKinlay’s Inn, Stockholm) Deep amber colour with creamy, beige head. Malty, fruity nose with notes of dried fruit, blood oranges and caramel. Malty, fruity taste with caramel, blood oranges, black-currant, resin, pine needles and a solid resinous bitterness in the finish. Almost full body, quite sweet. Very tasty and quite powerful (shy and understated are not really words that spring to mind). Excellent beer.

Sampled from 66cl bottle at Beer Enthusiast release party, Håndverkerstuene. Pours hazy amber with a small, off-white head. Hop juice! Hoppy aroma with citrus, fruits, malt and lots of caramel. Medium to full body. Sweet, fruity and caramelly with a hoppy and balanced bitterness. Hoppy dessert!

On bottle at Håndverkerstuene . Golden color, ok foam. Aromas of hops, quite a lot of caramel aromas. Full body & high complexity . High sweetness, some bitterness. Low carbonation. Enjoyable, but very sweet for IPA.
