This is one big beer. Forget the ABV, which is just a by-product of the passion. James and Josh from the Queens 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 dont like hops, dont even think about it. But if you do, dare we say this may be the best beer youll ever taste. We like it so much that upon racking we decided to make it a permanent part of the range.

ClubGonzo (5653) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 15, 2011
Bottle courtesy of StoreMy, shared @ tasting with Bergen Beer Geek Tasting Crew feat. Foffern, StoreMy and the local media! :-) Pours a deep, dark orange hazy body with a small white head. Nose is nutty honey tones, caramel, melon, grass and hints of molasses. Taste is fuzzy, grassy hop tones, honey, caramel, beeswax and hints of grass. Long, bitter aftertaste. Damn, this is one fine beer from Britain, and its refreshing to taste a DIPA in a different tradition than the American. Like to see more of those.

Appena stappata si presenta il citrico, sembra di trovarsi innanzi ad una limonata, dopo il primo impatto compaiono i luppoli e comincia il grande piacere. Di colore lievemente ambrato con schiuma media, ripropone in bocca il citrico mescolato con una sapiente luppolatura che la rendono decisamente piacevole.

One of my all time favourite beers. Massive hops but superbly balanced, even at a whopping 9.5%abv.

Draught at Pikkulintu 0.4L 18.11.2009. Mild nose. Pale beige head. Hazy slightly reddish amber colour. Slightly sweet more than average hopped taste. Fullfilled and warming. Some grapefruit in the taste. At the end hoppy bitterness.

fiulijn (20222) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 17, 2011
Hazy amber color with red shades; small head. Good malty aroma, with a cheesy/yeasty head, and some fruits. Strong body, round, sweet caramel/toffee, fruity hops; but the yeast character quite clashes with the American IPA.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - MAY 25, 2011
Bottle. Pours a hazy and copper beer with an offwhite head. The aroma is malt, caramel and hops with pine and peach. The flavor follows the nose with additional sweetness. The palate is dry with bitterness. Overall a good beer.

Leighton (20640) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2011
Cask at CPK. Pours a clear, rich amber with a soft, white head. Rich caramel, leaves and pineapple hops in the nose. Damn good flavor, very sweet but backed by the hops as well. Loads of candied sugar, fruits, caramel and toffee, alongside a potent bitterness that is resinous and piney. Full bodied with fine carbonation and quite warming. Finishes sticky and sugary, warming, with hints of booze. The bitterness coats the throat. Nice heat. Overall pretty awesome.
