COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sink the Bismarck! is beer, amplified. With the volume turned full up, it is important you that you be careful with this beer and show it the same amount of sceptical, tentative respect you would show an international chess superstar, clown or gypsy. Sink the Bismarck is a quadruple IPA that contains four times the hops, four times the bitterness and frozen four times to create at a staggering 41% ABV. This is IPA amplified, the most evocative style of the craft beer resistance with the volume cranked off the scale. Kettle hopped, dry hopped then freeze hopped for a deep fruit, resinous and spicy aroma. A full out attack on your taste-buds ensues as the incredibly smooth liquid delivers a crescendo of malt, sweet honey, hop oils and a torpedo of hop bitterness which lasts and lasts.

tfredvik (1849) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 18, 2016
This flat "beer" pours a clear, golden and incredibly viscous body with no head. The aroma is intense and very hoppy, with heavy notes of tropical fruits and caramel. The flavour is burning alcoholic, ridiculously hoppy and immensely malty: this is pure IPA concentrate! Also some hints of herbs. The taste is harsh bitter and heavy sweet, and the boozy aftertaste lasts until the next morning. The body is fuller than full and the texture is thicker than crude oil. This is a crazy, fun and absurd brew, but not exactly pleasant. Compared to e.g. Tactical Nuclear Penguin this is just a novelty.

tdtm82 (1701) - Essex, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2010
A dangerously intense IPA. Hedonistic; violent and aggressive. This hits you for six and knocks you back for more. More is exactly what I want. Intense hops. Intense malt. Intense kick up the arse. Lovely stuff. Hops aplenty and a bomb of malt. This baby is taking the USA style and slapping it about like its a loose duck. An awesome brew and a beer I would love to sample again. Amarilo hops; honey, caramel and spices. A tender session beer to warm your heart and have you steaming for more. Cheers, James. Thanks Magic Dave for the service.

anstei (1699) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JUL 13, 2016
Taster at Oluhuone Kaisla. Aroma of honey, pine needles, wood floor, very pretty. Pours flat dark ruby, looks like a good Islay. Strong booze on the tongue, salty and burning. Stinging aggressive palate. Just smell it and look at it, but dont try to drink...
