COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Occasional.

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.

Leighton (10419) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2011
Cask at CPK. Pours a clear, rich amber with a soft, white head. Rich caramel, leaves and pineapple hops in the nose. Damn good flavor, very sweet but backed by the hops as well. Loads of candied sugar, fruits, caramel and toffee, alongside a potent bitterness that is resinous and piney. Full bodied with fine carbonation and quite warming. Finishes sticky and sugary, warming, with hints of booze. The bitterness coats the throat. Nice heat. Overall pretty awesome.

gunnfryd (10201) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 21, 2011
On tap at the Wharf. Amber colour with an off-white head. Aroma is fruit, hop, malt, citrus. Flavour is caramel, hop, malt, citrus, fruit. Bitter finish. Full bodied nice beer.

Scopey (6140) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2011
On cask at the Cask and Kitchen, Pimlico. The colour is cloudy amber with a medium beige head. The nose is of cheese, farmyard, hay, grass and some resin. The taste is cheesy, with varnish, nuts, pineapple, lemon, and grapefruit, ending with some alcohol warmth. Decent enough but found the cheese notes a bit off-putting.

evergreen0199 (1924) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2011
Cask at the Cask pub and kitchen, Pimlico, London. A dark golden/amber coloured pour with a medium white head. Pleasing hoppy, malty aroma. This DIPA is incredibly rich, tastes fruity, caramel, bitter, sweet, malty. Definitely one to savour. Remember guzzling this at Reading beer fest a few years back and getting smashed on it. Very good stuff indeed!

yngwie (13106) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 6, 2011
On tap at The Wharf. It pours a hazy amber body and a finger-thick, dense, off-white head. The aroma is sure hoppy, with resins and citrus, and loads of sugary crystal malts in a nice way. Some alcohol too. Some roasted notes in the bitter and sweet flavor. Alcohol too, along with sugary, biscuity malts, roasted notes, resins and hops. Bitter finish. Damn, nothing what I expected from England, a bit sweet but tasteful and pleasant. 101020

flavio_b (277) - ROME, ITALY - JAN 11, 2011
This is one of the IPA I prefer mostly! On tap, perfumed enough, floral aroma with pineapple and orange notes. Bitter, dry and of course, hoppy as I prefer! So good!

ladnewton (1373) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2011
Cask at the Southampton Arms, London on 25th December 2010. Copper with a thin ring of off-white foam. Thick, rich pungent earthy aroma, with all these attributes amplified in-mouth.. Alcohol taste surfaces when drinking fast. Citric tang and flavour profile not dissimilar to BrewDog. Rich, pungent aftertaste on a slightly viscous and clingy but engaging mouthfeel.

Bottle. The aroma has grapefruits, some piney hops. Hazy, dark golden coloured beer with a white head. The taste is quite bitter, has citrus, some malts, some pine. Slightly dry. Good.

caesar (4893) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2010
Bottled. Clear amber color, short head. Aroma of pine and grapefruit. Hint of medicine (which is most likely the immense amount of hops). Good bitter taste. Very nice IIPA from England!
