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.

vanvenlo (1924) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - JUL 9, 2013
Slowbeer ontap (10-Jul-13) Sweet bubblegum herbal spirit aroma. Cloudy amber colour, decent headand ringed sheet lacing. Big spirit sweet herbal malt flavour. Grassy bitter herbal hop finish and herbal floral aftertaste.

Davros (3338) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 8, 2013
Pours hazy copper with an almost non-existent head. Nose shows resinous, piny and earthy hops alongside masses of sweet rich malt suggesting at caramel, fruity confectionery, bready notes and golden syrup. Flavours include pine, orange marmalade, sweet syrupy malt and alcohol. Very sharp bitterness in the finish. Needs higher carbonation, its all but flat.

DuffMan (10751) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 4, 2013
Bottle, shared with Parksy. Deep red-orange, very hazy, very thin crown that retains only briefly. Malty sweet aroma, with woody and grassy undertones. Not at all the kind of nose I’d expect in an IIPA. Chewy malty body, low carbonation, woody hop character that seems like an afterthought. This drinks like a cask beer that has been left on the bar for longer than it should have. Disappointing, especially considering how much I’ve liked Moor’s beers to date.

huge beer... as malty as it is hoppy. the malt body on this is great- complex, savoury, salted caramelish... big, bad hops. alpha beer

3.8
Pyrmir (6369) - Blattniksele, SWEDEN - JUN 5, 2013
On tap, rated from backlog. Bright amber with small white head. Aroma is pretty fresh, of caramel, fruit, malt and grapefruit hops. Taste is big and sweet; lots of grapefruit, tropical fruit, caramel, malt, alcoholol and grain.

3.9
Beermack (725) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2013
66cl bottle from Drinkstore, Dublin. Pours watery orange with zero head - looks a bit of a mess. Aroma is deep orange, caramel, tangerine, mango, peach, and a bit of booze. Taste gives lots of orange peel, mango, grapefruit, pineapple, booze, sweet caramel, woody notes, pine resin. Lots of lingering grapefruit bitterness and resinous oily notes. Thin-ish mouthfeel - no carb. This is a big beer - plenty of flavour - more of a massively hopped barleywine than a typical DIPA, but who cares about 'style' when it's as delicious as this. Would've loved a bit more carbonation to lift it, but that's the only real criticism.

allmyvinyl (11172) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 2, 2013
Keg at the Hanging Bat. Pours hazy amber with almost no head. Aroma is tropical fruits and dried fruit, a little caramel. This is repeated on the taste. Good finish, nice.

3.3
hawthorne00 (4188) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 23, 2013
Bottle. Clear amber with pretty much no head. aroma of toffee, some raisins, oranges. Oily, very low carbonation. Taste has toffee, kumquat + grapefruit marmalade, some sherry, dried fruit, light floral notes. Firm bitterness, tending towards dry at the end. Rather disappointing, like a very staid barley wine. Perhaps a dud bottle.

3.8
Ferris (17070) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 5, 2013
Bottle - Earthy, spicy and tropical fruits. Very unusual nose and very rich. Deep clear copper with no head. Almost like a liquor with its oily body and rich flavors. The earthy hops are there in the background with the alcohol up front, but in an absurdly balanced fashion. There is an astringency but it comes with the alcohol and little to no bitterness. Overall, I will try this again as it is unusual and I find something interesting in every sip. Not a sessionalble beer but something to have in a snifter after dessert.

3.7
Meilby (11790) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 25, 2013
Bottle 660ml @ Christianssand Brygghus, Kristiansand
Pours clear amber with a small off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, citrus, grape, peach and grass. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with a warm, caramel and fruity finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat.
