Heavily hopped, it has aromas of grapefruit, white grape and tropical fruit. Warm and fairly bodied, bitter but balanced, complex and persistent, its palate shows its character. It finishes with balsamic and resinous notes.

After watching the trailer of the movie Machete 4 years before its showing, I was sold on creating a beer to honor him. Not any beer, only one could bear the weight of such a name: a Double IPA. I have always been fascinated by well brewed Double (or Imperial) IPAs. These are far from easy beers to brew. Limiting the caramel amount, achieving a good dryness, making sure that the higher alcohols are not overpowering are some of the key elements to avoid an undrinkable sludge. Above all, hop has to emerge over everything else, powerful and imperious.

This is an extreme beer, either loved or hated. It has no middle ways, middle ways are not for Machete. Machete doesnt come to compromises. Machete dont text.

AssKicker (411) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - APR 29, 2016
Blonde orange avec une mousse archi-abondante qui tient bien. Got de malt dominant, accompagn par lamertume du houblon qui ne verse pas trop dans laromatique (notes de rsineux). Nempche que le houblon reste prsent en bouche bien longtemps aprs la dernire gorge, ce qui ne laisse pas indiffrent.
