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.

skortila (4424) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2010
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.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - MAY 25, 2011
Bottle. Pours a hazy and copper beer with an offwhite head. The aroma is malt, caramel and hops with pine and peach. The flavor follows the nose with additional sweetness. The palate is dry with bitterness. Overall a good beer.

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.

ClubGonzo (3854) - 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.

Hansen (6432) - Assentoft, DENMARK - MAR 2, 2012
I like this double IPA. Light brown coloured and unclear. Has a white head, medium duration. Heavy hoppy aroma, citrus, crisp, fruits, mango, moderate malty too. Flavor is starting moderate sweet and finish heavy bitter, more herbal hoppy notes. Dry texture and lively carbonation.

dreadnord (1013) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 30, 2012
Thanks Aaron. Pours light brown with a small off white head. Nose is light citrus, some pine and other dark fruits. Grass and sweet caramel malts too. FLavor is sweet and just a tad bitter, great balance for an english IPA. Mouthfeel is crisp, clean and has a shorter aftertaste. Not bad at all.

stravale (2035) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - JUL 12, 2012
Very rare Cask @ The Stockbridge Tap, Edinburgh EIBF 2012
Rich amber, clear, slight off white rich head, good lacing for abv
Aroma - rich orangey caramel malts, rich resonous hops, some grassy hops, orange citrus, dense juicy malts, rich resin, quite complex and fairly boozy
Taste as main aroma with rich orangey malts, rich caramel barley sugar malts, complex malts, grassy hops, soft citrus hops, sweet but not overly so, lots of flavours, saturated, quite boozy
Palate - soft carb, full body, oily silky texture. Finish as main flavour, smooyj not astringent despite big flavours.
Overall - Really glad to have tried this - very much into barley wine territory than US DIPA, lots of malt and resinous hops. Perhaps being at bit colder with some extra soft carbonation would enhance the drinkability.

TheCametron (1730) - CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 9, 2012
Bottle wi Ben. Clear amber with a thin white head. Under carbonated. Lovely tropical fruit aroma. Mango and passionfruit. Flavour is sweet with a fruity acidic twang. Quite sweet with a managably bitter finish. Very nice.

BenH (2140) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 9, 2012
Bottle. Pours a nice deep amber almost red with a tiny attempt at a head. Delicious hop aroma, pine, resin, mango and orange, toffee, smells a bit like boiled sweets. Taste has more of the same with a solid caramel and toffee malt backbone. Quite syrupy and sweet with a long bitter finish, slightly under-carbonated for me. Very tasty

abemorsten (2591) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - NOV 22, 2012
Bottle kindly shared by Sigmund. Pours a hazy opper body with a big bubbled tan colored film. Tropical salty fruits, sprucy pollen and meaty notes on the nose. Herbal, salty, malty and bitter flavors. Full bodied. Brothy texture and a dry tomgue.
