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.

Piña y mango con pino y fondo maltoso. Muy jugosa en boca, densa y de intenso sabor con un amargor suave aunque el final es seco.

Cask at the Nags Head Reading. Cloudy orange-red with little head. Fine fruity hopped aroma. Lightly zesty, orange, apricot and incredibly light tasting for the abv. A good DIPA, well done Moor again.

Pours hazy golden with low white head. Aroma of pine, citrus, resin, light marmalade. Taste is marmalade sweet followed by a big resinous bitter finish. Medium bodied and smooth with soft carbonation.

Tap @ Craft Beer Co Clerkenwell. Murky brown, not much head. Orange malt aroma. Cointreau flavour. Strong and sweet. Disappointing.

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)

Intense ripe tropical fruits, mango, passion fruit, papaya, sweet citrus fruits, pine. Hazy, dark gold, tiny, creamy, beige head. Medium sweet. Pine, more overripe tropical fruits, candied mango, passion fruit, papaya, more sweet citrus fruits, tangerine, marmalade, soft carbonation. Beautiful IIPA, rich and intense. Can from RealAle, Richmond.

CraftBeerNick (2803) - 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.

3.7
GhostS (513) - Chisinau, 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.
