This is one big beer. Forget the ABV, which is just a by-product of the passion. James and Josh from the Queen’s Arms, Corton Denham, and I (hence JJJ) have a shared passion for great beers and were lamenting the lack of true IPAs in the UK. So we decided to brew our own version of heaven. Double IPA was just not good enough - we needed a triple IPA. Triple the gravity, triple the colour, and more than triple the hops. With nearly 700 kg of malt and over 11.5 kg of hops this beer is big in every sense. In fact, it was so big and hoppy that it broke our pump! Deep copper in colour, over the top in aroma and flavour, but somehow still remaining (somewhat) balanced, this beer is not for the faint of heart. And if you don’t like hops, don’t even think about it. But if you do, dare we say this may be the best beer you’ll ever taste.

October 2017 - 330ml can at home in Richmond as 'Moor JJJ', 9%, BB Sep 2018. Just hit the shops this week so as fresh as possible. I have been looking for this one for a long time - years in fact - happy to track it down. Advertising makes a point of this being 100% malt ferment - not a surprise when this was first released but no longer the norm in this day and age. Fairly vibrant orange, hazy, foamy white head leaves streaky lacing. Aroma is caramelised fruits, jelly lemon slices, lemon tart. Quite nice. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is gummy sweets, grassy, pine, astringent yet sweet, lots of jelly slice sweets, warming alcohol and a crisp finish with a lingering light bitterness. Sure it's sweeter than the modern type of DIPA but it's got a great balance about it too. Got to love the sweet fruitiness and the pine. Mmm pine. Glad I chased this down. (8-4-8-4-16=4.0)

CraftBeerNick (2737) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2017
#1000 England Rating. Can at home, 20th October 17. Been after this one since I missed the release last year. Pours dark Amber orange and murky. Aroma is orange, caramel and pine sap. Taste is citrus pith, bitter orange marmalade, a bitter piney linger. Hop profile maybe more English than some dipa, but works well. Enjoyable.

GhostS (488) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - OCT 17, 2017
Aromă moderată, cu mult malț, hamei ierbos și drojdii, citrice, ceva fructe necoapte, cereale măcinate. Gust mediu spre puternic amar de hamei ierbos și puțin pelin, citrice verzi și fructe necoapte, mult malț, ceva dulceață spre final, dar brusc ”ascunsă” de un postgust amar/de pelin. Foarte bună, dar și bine amară.

jamestulloch (4276) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 16, 2017
Can from The Beerhive. Murky amber body with a dense off-white head. No visible carbonation. Good lacing. Aroma of caramel, Jaffa Cake, tea and marmalade. Flavour of blood orange, honey and papaya. Medium body with a creamy mouthfeel. Soft fizz. A lovely DIPA that verges into Barley Wine territory. One of my favourite Moor beers to date.

Mortlach (2490) - Rome, ITALY - APR 17, 2017
On tap @Buskers Pub (Rome). Pesca giallona, opalescente, schiuma leggera. Al naso sentori di malto, frutta gialla, mango, melone, resina. In bocca ha una base di malto importante con amaro finale deciso. Corpo pieno, carbonazione medio-leggera. Birra sui generis, una sorta di american barley wine. Molto buona!

LazyPyro (1485) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2017
330ml can. Pours a deep amber/copper colour with a medium off-white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma: pine, citrus fruits, grapefruit, tropical fruit, orange. Taste: lots of fruity hops, citrus, tropical, orange, grapefruit, sweet malt, caramel. Pretty bitter but pleasant, touch of alcohol but overall it’s fairly well hidden, medium bodied, fairly well balanced. A very drinkable DIPA. I’m sure this would have been one of the best beers ever when it was first brewed 9 years ago, still holds up well today.
