COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

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.

Ungstrup (29208) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 8, 2009
Draft. An unclear amber beer with a thin lazing orangey head. The aroma has strong notes of flowery hops as well as notes of sweet malt, alcohol, and fruit - leaning on being over ripe. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of over ripe fruits, hops, fresh peaches, and fresh grapefruits, leading to a very bitter finish. More like a BW in my book.

9.5%. Cloudy amber brown beer. Slightly dry palate. Wow! Finally an English beer with real balls!! Rich rich salty malt with plenty of hops making their presence felt as well. The malt is also creamy and the hops well integrated. Really comes over as a Barleywine but who cares - it’s English and full of flavour! Whoo Hooo!

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 17, 2011
Hazy amber color with red shades; small head. Good malty aroma, with a cheesy/yeasty head, and some fruits. Strong body, round, sweet caramel/toffee, fruity hops; but the yeast character quite clashes with the American IPA.
