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.

ladnewton (1849) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2011
Cask at the Southampton Arms, London on 25th December 2010. Copper with a thin ring of off-white foam. Thick, rich pungent earthy aroma, with all these attributes amplified in-mouth.. Alcohol taste surfaces when drinking fast. Citric tang and flavour profile not dissimilar to BrewDog. Rich, pungent aftertaste on a slightly viscous and clingy but engaging mouthfeel.

caesar (6816) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2010
Bottled. Clear amber color, short head. Aroma of pine and grapefruit. Hint of medicine (which is most likely the immense amount of hops). Good bitter taste. Very nice IIPA from England!

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2010
More of this please erm Moor. Like to see an English brewer doing a proper IPA. Cask at the Manchester Winter Ales Festival. Reddish brown with medium to thin off white head. Smells faintly of cake, little fruit and spice. Flavour is grapefruit, lemon, hops, herbs and spices. Done a good job of making it smooth and easy to drink for the ABV. Good work fellas.

leaparsons (10137) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2010
Bottle. Copper, red and brown with an off-white foam. Aromas are bubblegum and spices with marzipan and pine. Woody with cream and peppery alcohol. Tangerine with floral notes and yeast. Pink grapefruit with hints of banana. Flavours are tinned oranges syrup with spices. Bitter and sweet grapefruit with slight nutty notes. Warming alcohol but very smooth for its strength. Some vegetable aspects with floral, spicy hops. Very good.

660 ml bottle. Foggy amber with white suds. Nose is candied orange peel, juniper, dusty attic and a touch of cayenne. Full bodied resin bomb but sadly almost flat. Taste is tangerine, caramel, gin and pink grapefruit. Finishes with a crunching bitterness and a burn.

wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2010
Bottle, Corks of Cotham, Bristol. Very murky amber pour with a medium sized, lingering off white head. Nose had plenty happening and was very fragrant and hop laden, with notes of sweet malt, sweaty pits (arm not coal), bubblegum and booze. Flavour was also big, with balanced fruit and sweetness tussling with a good and heavy hop hit that was just bob on and left a cracking bitter finish.I wish there were more English IPAs like this out there. Very enjoyable stuff. Dug it.
