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.

@ The Wharf. The aroma is tense maltieness and American citrus hops. Colour is murky copper what looks like hop haze. Flavor is intense citrus and grape with a nice strong maltyness backbone. It is very like Avery Brewing Co’s Maharaja double IPA. A very intense malt and hops beer.

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

What can only be described as an explosion of flavour! Although unsessionable, I just wanted to sip it all night. A full bodied richness. More like a barley wine but with subtle IPA hops!

Wow. Balance. Mix of the best of the US with the best of British. If only the Americans could get subtlety and the British weren’t so stuffy.

Cask conditioned gravity, White Cliffs BF 08. Even though the Oakham’s was good, this was beer of the festival for me. A genuine English IIPA. Reddy russet colour with very lasting dark beige head. Big PNW grapefruit aroma. Raspberry/strawberry too. Stunningly well balanced. Malts are syrupy, but not too much so. Then this big hit of hop kicks in. Stunning grapefruit hop. I’ve not had an English beer like it.

What a beatiful headbanger!!! If you dont like hops, alcohol or generally flavour please run the other way. This is an exceptionally grand beer. a heavy lemony nose. Dark copper colour and hop hop hoppy in flavour. Deep round palate. yum, yum if you can stand it!!!

[cask at the Stockbridge Tap, Edinburgh] Deep, hazy orangey-bronze from the cask pour, nice white head. Aroma of sweet, sticky caramel and resinous hop. Really syrupy on the flavour – perfect on cask, as the resinous hop flavours really come out. It’s like drinking that sticky amber you see running down tree trunks, trapping insects. Yet despite that – and the abv – it’s really very smooth. One of the best beers I’ve had this year, and a real shame it’s now so rare on cask in the UK [14072012]
