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.

Leighton (22301) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2011
Cask at CPK. Pours a clear, rich amber with a soft, white head. Rich caramel, leaves and pineapple hops in the nose. Damn good flavor, very sweet but backed by the hops as well. Loads of candied sugar, fruits, caramel and toffee, alongside a potent bitterness that is resinous and piney. Full bodied with fine carbonation and quite warming. Finishes sticky and sugary, warming, with hints of booze. The bitterness coats the throat. Nice heat. Overall pretty awesome.

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.

imdownthepub (15326) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2012
Cask conditioned at Minehead Beer Fest ’12. Cloudy brown with white head. There is a surprise at the start of this, fruity sweetness, strawberry juice, I never expected that. Then the alcohol pushes through, strong, stripping allowing the fruity hops to develop. Powerful stuff and very involving, heavy man!

Lovely Rich amber colour. Great carbonation and head/ lacing. Herb, spice and subtle fruit hop malt aroma. Body full with spice and malt flavour. Smooth Finish, solid

jamestulloch (4327) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 16, 2017
Can from The Beerhive. Murky amber body with a dense off-white head. No visible carbonation. Good lacing. Aroma of caramel, Jaffa Cake, tea and marmalade. Flavour of blood orange, honey and papaya. Medium body with a creamy mouthfeel. Soft fizz. A lovely DIPA that verges into Barley Wine territory. One of my favourite Moor beers to date.

CraftBeerNick (2803) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2017
#1000 England Rating. Can at home, 20th October 17. Been after this one since I missed the release last year. Pours dark Amber orange and murky. Aroma is orange, caramel and pine sap. Taste is citrus pith, bitter orange marmalade, a bitter piney linger. Hop profile maybe more English than some dipa, but works well. Enjoyable.

Rune (13506) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 14, 2008
Gravicask at Reading Beer Festival 08. Dark brown body with ruby highlights. Thin, but lasting beige head. Strong - very strong - hoppy content in aroma and taste. Nice gliding transition from a piny hop aroma to a darker hoppy taste. Full of dark and dried fruits complemented by dark berries and a solid bitter ending. It surely needs more than one sampling to really appreciate its complexity, so I’ll be looking for this great brew for later enjoyment (02.05.2008).
