COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

This is one big beer. Forget the ABV, which is just a by-product of the passion. James and Josh from the Queens 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 dont like hops, dont even think about it. But if you do, dare we say this may be the best beer youll ever taste. We like it so much that upon racking we decided to make it a permanent part of the range.

Koelschtrinker (10435) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - DEC 6, 2011
Malzbetonter Hopfenantrunk. Starke passende Se, steigender Hopfen. Vollmundig, blumig-bitter, die Se ist in Teilen einen Ticken zu stark. Das Bier ist ziemlich sffig, nur im Abgang kommt kurz eine stechende Alkoholnote auf. 8/11/12/11/8/12

Palme (3263) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 22, 2011
0.75l bottle kindly provided by StoreMy and shared with The Tasting Crew + friends. This one pours a heavy clouded almost murky amber-brown body with a small bubbly and heavy lacing just off-white head. The aroma is malty and sweet, also light herbal and heather hints, but also lots of caramel and a nice citrus touch. Soft carbonation levels and a light sticky to slick mouthfeel. Also quite malt and caramel sweet in the flavors. Licorice and almost something that reminds me of leather. Ends bitter. Quite bitter actually - almost stingy. And fruity! Red berries in the finish. Yeah, this was quite good actually. Yey to moor of this!

Foffern (1186) - Bod, NORWAY - NOV 19, 2011
Light amber with a thin off-white head. Aromas of soap, floral and parfumy hops, sweet malt, grapefruit, and hints of alcohol. The hops dominates in the mouth with some grain, leather, biscuits (?). Hint of alcohol. Heavy round bitterness with long duration. Medium mouthful and slick. A not very typical english ale, but a decent powerful ale.

ClubGonzo (3985) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 15, 2011
Bottle courtesy of StoreMy, shared @ tasting with Bergen Beer Geek Tasting Crew feat. Foffern, StoreMy and the local media! :-) Pours a deep, dark orange hazy body with a small white head. Nose is nutty honey tones, caramel, melon, grass and hints of molasses. Taste is fuzzy, grassy hop tones, honey, caramel, beeswax and hints of grass. Long, bitter aftertaste. Damn, this is one fine beer from Britain, and its refreshing to taste a DIPA in a different tradition than the American. Like to see more of those.

pag977 (3) - Napoli, ITALY - NOV 9, 2011 does not count
Appena stappata si presenta il citrico, sembra di trovarsi innanzi ad una limonata, dopo il primo impatto compaiono i luppoli e comincia il grande piacere. Di colore lievemente ambrato con schiuma media, ripropone in bocca il citrico mescolato con una sapiente luppolatura che la rendono decisamente piacevole.

One of my all time favourite beers. Massive hops but superbly balanced, even at a whopping 9.5%abv.

Draught at Pikkulintu 0.4L 18.11.2009. Mild nose. Pale beige head. Hazy slightly reddish amber colour. Slightly sweet more than average hopped taste. Fullfilled and warming. Some grapefruit in the taste. At the end hoppy bitterness.
