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.

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - SEP 7, 2012
Bottle from Great Grog. Pours a deep orangey ruby colour with a thin layer of bubbles. No carbonation to speak of. Lovely bright fruity nose, strawberry jam, pureed apricot, sweet honeyed malts. Nice sweet malt body followed by a massive resinous grapefruit hop hit, seriously fruity. Nice long, clean grapefruit bitter finish. But sadly, absolutely no carbonation. Really flat as a pancake. Slightly spoilt it for me :(

Svesse (8357) - Hsselby, SWEDEN - SEP 7, 2012
(Draught at MacKinlays Inn, Stockholm) Deep amber colour with creamy, beige head. Malty, fruity nose with notes of dried fruit, blood oranges and caramel. Malty, fruity taste with caramel, blood oranges, black-currant, resin, pine needles and a solid resinous bitterness in the finish. Almost full body, quite sweet. Very tasty and quite powerful (shy and understated are not really words that spring to mind). Excellent beer.

Sampled from 66cl bottle at Beer Enthusiast release party, Hndverkerstuene. Pours hazy amber with a small, off-white head. Hop juice! Hoppy aroma with citrus, fruits, malt and lots of caramel. Medium to full body. Sweet, fruity and caramelly with a hoppy and balanced bitterness. Hoppy dessert!

Arve_Christian (5040) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 3, 2012
On bottle at Hndverkerstuene . Golden color, ok foam. Aromas of hops, quite a lot of caramel aromas. Full body & high complexity . High sweetness, some bitterness. Low carbonation. Enjoyable, but very sweet for IPA.

VsXsV (4387) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 2, 2012
Draught. Hazy, deep amber liquid with small off-white head. Aroma of blackberries, biscuit, caramel, grapefruit and pine. A bit too malt forward for my liking. Taste is dry and medium to high bitter with notes of red berries and caramel. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Not hoppy enough to support all the malt.

omhper (24620) - Tyres, SWEDEN - AUG 25, 2012
Draught at. Bishops Arms Folkungagatan, Stockholm. Hazy copper colour, rich head. Intense aroma of tropical fruits and strawberries. Sweet with soft mouthfeel and full body. Sauteed tropical fruit and salted lychee with honey and white pepper heat atop. Very bitter finish, but well integrated ans without inkyness. Nice new wave English Imperial IPA.

brnandersen (3671) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 13, 2012
Draught at Bishops Arms, rebro, 25.7.2012. Murky, orange-brown colour with a small, creamy off-white head. Fruity aroma with caramel, hops and grasses with notes of berries and pine needles. Sweet and fruity taste. Full body with an oily texture. Bitter finish with hops, pine needles and grass with notes of grape fruits and a good amount of alcohol. Strong DIPA - almost like a barley wine. Good.

BenH (3437) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 9, 2012
Bottle. Pours a nice deep amber almost red with a tiny attempt at a head. Delicious hop aroma, pine, resin, mango and orange, toffee, smells a bit like boiled sweets. Taste has more of the same with a solid caramel and toffee malt backbone. Quite syrupy and sweet with a long bitter finish, slightly under-carbonated for me. Very tasty

Bottle wi Ben. Clear amber with a thin white head. Under carbonated. Lovely tropical fruit aroma. Mango and passionfruit. Flavour is sweet with a fruity acidic twang. Quite sweet with a managably bitter finish. Very nice.

Draught at Haket, Gteborg, on June 27, 2012
Amber color, white head. Sweet, hoppy scent. Berry, alcohol, hoppy, bitter taste. Very high bitterness. Medium mouthfeel.
Way too bitter and too evident alcohol for me.
