COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
English: Did you like Before During and after Christmas? Maybe thought it pored brilliantly, the alcohol was admirable well hidden and you loved how the arrogant amount of hops numbed you. This beer will knock your tongue off, essentially due to the obscure amount of hops that went down this explosive fella its a tour de force in hoppyness and by far the craziest beer ever made from Evil Twin but not the last.

Slight hazy orange color, nice and malt/hop aroma. Aroma is like a standard IPA with lots of fresh citrus. Taste is bitter, and quite heavy on its body. This is really how every DIPA should be like. Some say its sweet, i dont agree! Alcohol is very well hidden. It actually reminds me of Amager Bryghuss "Gluttony", just with a little less hops.

Bottle->SA. Murky orange/gold with moderate offwhite head. A: big hops, citrus and pine. T: bittersweet juicy hops. Drying finish, with lingering sweetness. The alcohol is not in your face, but it is definitely in there. Good.

Alextricity (509) - Michigan, USA - APR 17, 2014
Bottled 2/12/14, and poured 4/14/14. $4 single. I was a bit hesitant to buy a 2 month old IPA for $4, but the ABV is high enough on this one that I felt itd keep the hops in-tact for a little while. Appearance: Poured aggressively and couldnt quite get the whole beer in the glass due to the fluffy, light tan head. Plenty of floaters throughout the glass. The beer is copper-brown in color, and theres a good amount of thick lacing. Unexpected given the ABV. Smell: Huge. Dank. Beautiful. Its a huge wallop of pine and tropical fruits, but theres a massive malt sweetness (expected for the ABV). The alcohol really isnt there in an obvious way, but youll probably just get the feeling that this is a big beer, even in a blind tasting. I guess you can just sort of "smell the heat", I suppose? Awesome aroma. Taste/feel: Massively syrupy sweet at first, unsurprisingly, but also an awesome, dank, bitter hoppiness. Bursting freshness, despite the fact this was bottled a couple months ago. I surprisingly dont find this to be very abrasive/harsh given its intense hopping. Plenty of body with a mild, maybe moderate carbonation. A big, big beer thats a joy to drink. Its more of a sipper, but its surprising drinkability will make you want to drink it a bit fast. Very dry finish due to that 13%. A slight warmth in the throat and on the back of the tongue, with some of stickiness, and nice bitterness. Since this is 13%, it may be appropriate to call this a "Triple IPA"... but I dont know. Triple IPAs Ive had before have tasted like American Barleywines, but this one really tastes like an Imperial IPA. Phenomenal. $4 seems a bit on the high side (eh, maybe not so much for an Evil Twin beer...), but it is most definitely worth it. It is most definitely a big beer with a lot of sweetness and thickness, but if you like hops, you should be able to appreciate this one... I really, REALLY like it. Given the ABV and the complexity of this brew, theres not too much more I can ask for. Make no qualms about it, the name "Molotov Cocktail" is a more than appropriate name for this brew -- not for the faint of buds.

Growler from CBX. Cloudy apricot pour with a bubbly white head. Aroma is sweet sticky caramel malts, resinous, dank grapefruit hops. Flavor is syrupy, tongue exhausting hoppiness with sticky sweet caramel maltiness. This ones a doozy.
