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 – it’s a tour de force in hoppyness and by far the craziest beer ever made from Evil Twin – but not the last.

fidelis83 (2270) - 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 wouldn’t 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.

FrankZappa7 (510) - GERMANY - DEC 7, 2016
06.12.2016- 0,33L Flasche(liquid Hops 09/2015) . Gelborange, minimale Trübung, weisser Schaum. Aroma: Rosinanen, Ananas, Tropenfrüchtekorb. Antrunk: Trockenfrüchte, Karamell, altersbedingt minimal harzig. Körper fast schon ölig. Starke Restsüsse, die aber mit der Hopfenbitterkeit gut harmoniert. Gut!

tomer (3211) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - NOV 4, 2016
At a tasting, thanks, small stable bubbly head, hazy orange color, candy, fruit drops and alcohol aroma, flavor is a melange of fruit with a noticable sourness and a light bitterness, alcohol coming through. Drinkable, But this beer had really identity problems.

Tap at Fermentoren Aarhus. Very dry, hoppy and bitter taste. Not too flowery or fruity, but a true IPA.

anstei (1362) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - NOV 1, 2016
Tap at Craft Beer Tuesday Kill The Keg. Pours clear light orange-ish. Aroma of pine needles and resin. Super intense body, with the booze rising quickly. Sticky, juicy, sweet, chewy. First floor, honey. Heavy fruit palate. Everything on the edge of being too much, but it just works. Nice.

Nicktattoo (3) - Liverpool, Merseyside, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2016 does not count
Quite harsh taste, probably wouldn't buy again but good to try. I suppose at 13% I shouldn't expect smooth as dairy milk but I can taste every one of those 13 percentiles. It's ok. Good to get smashed if you're hip.

DSG (12355) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 16, 2016
Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks Alon. Hazy golden. Aroma of malt, fruity hops, and light vegetal notes. Sweet flavor, caramelly, with fruity hops, some alcohol, and some bitterness. OK, too heavy.
