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.

It smells hoppy and sweet. The taste is first nice sweet-hoppy then it more becomes fruity-hoppy and the sweet is less. Good! 10/10/10/11/-/10

9.5%. Cloudy amber brown beer. Slightly dry palate. Wow! Finally an English beer with real balls!! Rich rich salty malt with plenty of hops making their presence felt as well. The malt is also creamy and the hops well integrated. Really comes over as a Barleywine but who cares - it’s English and full of flavour! Whoo Hooo!

Can. Light haze on this gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Airy palette, mildly dry, decent fine minerally carbonation. Smooth malts, a light creamy sweetness. Good orange and orange peel. Light hop spice. Mild mango. Slightly tangy pine. Light crisp finish. Seems like a very different beer from 2009, much lighter and much more modern.

660ml Bottle (at 9.5%ABV per the Bottle).: Got in trade from stobbe74; THANKS Soeren! Aroma of malt, hops, Earth, citrus, and a hint of caramel. Poured a muddy brown/orange in color with a small, off-white head that greatly diminished but lasted throughout around the edges. Cloudy. Slightly sparkling. Flavor is light to medium sweet and medium bitter. Tastes of malt, citrus, oranges, pine, light resin, tropical fruit, and hints of Earth and Caramel. Medium body. Oily, then medium to dry texture. Average carbonation. Light malt, citrus, hop, resin, pine, light tropical fruit finish is light to medium sweet, medium bitter, and dry. 9.5%ABV is completely hidden throughout.

Thanks Aaron. Pours light brown with a small off white head. Nose is light citrus, some pine and other dark fruits. Grass and sweet caramel malts too. FLavor is sweet and just a tad bitter, great balance for an english IPA. Mouthfeel is crisp, clean and has a shorter aftertaste. Not bad at all.

DURRUTI57 (9) - Vigo, SPAIN - MAR 3, 2012 does not count
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2012 Cerveza color Ambar algo turbia con cabeza de espuma blanca poco duradera. Aroma afrutado y fresco. Sabor citrico con toques a pino, gran cuerpo e intensas notas a lupulo con final muy seco. Gran cerveza.

I like this double IPA. Light brown coloured and unclear. Has a white head, medium duration. Heavy hoppy aroma, citrus, crisp, fruits, mango, moderate malty too. Flavor is starting moderate sweet and finish heavy bitter, more herbal hoppy notes. Dry texture and lively carbonation.
