Hoppier than a )insert joke here0, and bitter as… blah blah, just drink it!

This double IPA is brewed with the same grain bill each time, to the same ABV and IBUs, but the late hops in each version will be whatever we think will wreak most havoc on your pallets.

Drink with intensely flavoured foods such as grilled meats and saucy barbecue or smelly cheese. Yeah, go for the smelly cheese.
Note: Hops change batch to batch. Batch 0006

teorn88 (6455) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2014
Backlog rating. Keg at CPK, Pimlico. It pours a deep golden color with a medium off-white head. Aroma is caramel, toffee and malt with some pony notes in the end. Taste is quite sweet, malty, biscuity, with some ripe fruitiness from the hops. Quite full bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, tends to be a tad sweet for my tooth.

Bottle from the hive. Pours hazy amber, big white head. Grapefruit, citrus, resin nose. Sweet and buttery medium body, very balanced bitterness. Couldn't possibly tell this is over 9%. Good stuff.

An avalnche of flavours and aromas. They’ve crammed so much into this beer my first thought was "this is too much!" but then you taste all the various flavours and nuances. Are all the good hops in the World in this? Simply put, this is an amazing experience.

wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2013
Bottle, Kris Wines, London. Poured a murky orange colour with a small white head. Aroma was piney hop, orange and peach. Flavour was sweet malts, booze and a fair dollop of hop and tropical fruits. Nearly very good, but somehow lacks any real finesse.

TBone (16159) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 28, 2013
Bottled 330ml ABM. Batch 0006 Apr 13. Dark murky orange-brown color, small white head. Fruity, alcoholic, resiny bitter aroma, yeasty too. Medium-bodied. Base has lots of caramalt, this is sweet and a bit yeasty DIPA. Fruity-resiny bitterness. Perhaps slightly better on tap? Now I bit too sweet for me.

Big bashy double IPA, sherbet and tropical syrup mega-power kind of thing. Good effort for the team.
