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.

fidelis83 (2300) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - JUL 28, 2013
Hazy old gold pour that turns to a nice, peach and bright amber when held to light, with a thin off white head that has great retention and leaves decent lacing. Aroma is full of caramel, burnt sugar and sweet citrus, some tropical and pine, toast and sweet malt, just a hint of toffee. Flavor is caramel, toast, muted biscuit and fruity esters quickly blown out of the water by sweet malt and sweet and bitter citrus, something very much citrus rind-like, probably hops, but I wouldnt be surprised to find grapefruit or orange rind in the recipe, syrupy floral notes and sweet hay. This thing is really just full of sweet and bitter malt, fruit and hop notes fighting it out in a tug of war that has a different winner every second. Palate is medium to heavy body, with a slick and chewy entry, light, blanketing and sharp carbonation and dry, slightly puckering but still somewhat slick and sticky finish. Good stuff, but pretty boozy and a little astringent in the finish, the all over the place, extreme sweet to bitter and back balance grows fatiguing.

Bosskie (853) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 19, 2017
Dark copper colour, crystal-clear weak white head. Smellmis bitter resin spiciness with a hint of caramel, chlorine. Taste is seriously bitter and fruity against caramel heavy sweetness. Meaty, cardamom, cumin, very full and complex.

LazyPyro (832) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2017
355ml bottle. Slightly hazy amber orange pour with a smooth small but stable white head. Aroma of hops, pine, resin, tropical, fruit, liqueur like. Taste is the same, intensely hoppy, also very boozy as you expect from 13%, some warming alcohol burn, bit of a palate destroyer because of this but it is a nice beer. Medium-full body, relatively low carbonation, high bitterness, very warming finish.

balwanekfigo (58) - POLAND - FEB 23, 2017
W aromacie czuć lekki słd i chmiel nie jest bardzo intensywny.Wygląd średnio, sam nie wiem. Bardzo dużo farfocli w środku, ale jest tego tak dużo i tak rwnomiernie rozłożone i nie osiada, że nawet oryginalnie to wygląda. Smak: Bardzo bardzo oleiste, lepkie, zalepiające, słodkie. Syrop. Kurcze. To piwo ma 13%, najmocniejsze iipa jakie piłem, a alkohol przynajmniej w połowie imperialnych ipa jakie piłem był mocniejszy i wyraźniejszy. Tutaj jest PERFEKCYJNIE ukryty. Wysycenie zerowe. Głwnie czuć tu słodowość i owoce tropikalne, goryczka jest, ale przez tą lepkość i słodycz jest tłumiona. Pijąc to czuć że jest wszystkiego x3 ale wszystko wspłgra. Zdecydowanie jedno wystarczy. Dla mnie petarda.

Clear, golden, very small head, lots of particles (yeast?). Aroma: tropical fruits, paper, hay. Full to medium body, lots of sweetness, high to medium bitterness. Fruity flavour but also lots of clean malt notes. Sharp, earthy and floral bitterness. Nicely hidden alcohol.

nordic (587) - Tartu, ESTONIA - FEB 3, 2017
Bottle. Deep orange color, hazy, medium head. Aroma: fruity, citric, caramel, liquorish, hoppy. Taste: strong alcohol feels, heavy, still fruity and hoppy. Not easy to drink, but definitely nice expirience.

Cokemonkey11 (737) - - JAN 28, 2017
Bottle. Pours medium amber and medium opaque with a thin white foam subsiding. Scent is lovely notes of mixed hops, citrus fruits, and slightly artificial sweetness. Taste is slightly sour, flavors of aged, wood/borboun/sherry, IPA yeast and hickory. Finish is a bit like borboun cask. Flavors of rose petal and chocolate? Excellent.

tricksta_p (4107) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JAN 23, 2017
Bottle at Multi Qlti Tap Bar, Krakw. Big sweet sticky tropical fruit aroma with some booze, grapefruit, malt, huge hop punch with some pine resin. Flavour is bittersweet with noticeable booze. Body is medium with a somewhat sticky mouthfeel. Nice hop kick, on its way to being a hoppy barleywine. Just a bit too boozy, a slow sipper that I should not have touched after a long day of craft bar hopping around Krakw.
