This massive Double IPA is big enough to be called a Triple IPA. We had to fill the mash tun with grain three times to get enough sugar into this bad boy. The repeated brewing to get it right nearly killed both Jerry and Adam, but resulted in one potent beer. The final gravity is the same as the original gravity on So Single It’s Half. Lots and lots of malt was used to build enough backbone to hold up the true feature: the hops. Bittered with Zythos and flavored and dry-hopped with Falconer’s Flight, the bitterness is enough to flatten even the most seasoned hophead. We used nearly 4 pounds of hops per barrel of beer! The prominent flavors are fruits of all kinds (tropical, citrus, apple, cherry, etc.), a little pine-y touch, and hints of toffee and caramel. The high alcohol is also very noticeable. There is a good burn to accompany the smoothness.

On tap at Bitter Phew. Fletchfighters, this is what triple IPAs taste like. Its perfect. Yes, its syrupy. Orange amber body, minimal head, sour orange/citrus aroma. Sip, slowly. Malt, citrus, apples, vanilla come in and out. Warmth sneaks up on you. I had to go half way around the world to find this....

On tap at bitter phew 330 ml pour. Dark orange amber color, thin off white ring of lacing. Very thick and syrupy. Nose is caramel malts, no hops at all. Lots of sugar and booze. Taste is caramel, malt, grain, candied orange, candied pineapple, etc. did I say booze?? Syrupy feel. No hop presence at all. Sadly way past it’s prime.

On tap at Delirium Hoppy Loft, Bruxelles. Pours orange with small white head. Caramel and fruits in aroma. Sweetish, caramel flavor with some hops. Alcohol is warming but not offensive. Nice one.

[email protected] Olbar Slightly hazy orange color, small off-white head. Aroma has rye and citrus and some kind of wood, resin. Medium to full-bodied. Of couse it’s quite glueish. And sweet, almost sugary, syrupy and sticky. Behind the sweetness there is resin and some citrus. No burning alcohol, sweetness covers it. Extreme.

Nice beer, but with too much alcohol. The huge amounts of hops is noticable, but due to the high alcohol vol, the beer has a dominant sweetness that makes it taste more like a barley wine than an IPA.

Skinnyviking (9767) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2013
Draught. Low fluffy and quickly disappearing light brown head. Hazy dark orange body. Fruity nutty aroma and flavor on a solid malt base with a nice amount of hops bitterness. Low carbonation. Long bitter finish. Alcohol can be spotted but is not too much of a good thing.

JanLaursen (3226) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 2, 2013
Draft at Søernes Ølbar. Nose is intense honey-sweetness, fruity and spicy. Smooth but potent mouthfeel with a syrupy texture. Feels and tastes almost like a fortified wine. Cookie dough. Fruity hops, but the bitterness of the hops are outsweetend by the nectar-like malt-soup. Impressive, but impossible to drink in anything but a few sips before it goes to the bin.

A nice hop filled brew with mild caramelized and toasted malt backbone. A big citrus and grapefruity bomb of hops with a little bit of resin. Lacks a big sticky body although it has a fairly solid hop flavour and aroma. Mild soapy lacing is a bit off putting.

Kapaopango (34) - SPAIN - JUN 6, 2013
Orange colour, smooth foam. Citrus aroma. Citrus taste and hoppy and alcoholic finish. In my opinion too much alcohol. Nice beer, I love it.

Thx! to Antoine. Sampled draft @ Delirium Hoppy Loft. Appearance is thick caramel, little white head. Nose is very sweet grapefruit hop concentrate, huge marmalade, syrupy, thick bitterness, booze,… Taste is thick sweet grapefruit, almost syrupy, pine resin goo, marmalade, thick caramel, pineapple, some floral bitterness, sweet malts, alcohol in a good way, thick malts,… Very full thick mouthfeel, lots of malts, hop concentrate,… Pretty freaking awesome. Beats Hopverdomme heavily at its own game.
