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.

Samma (166) - Fitzroy, AUSTRALIA - FEB 23, 2017
Canned. Big, big citrus pine nose. Pours golden. Packed full of citrus bitterness but somehow well balanced. The abv is incredibly well hidden.

LazyPyro (929) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2017
330ml can. Pours a deep amber/copper colour with a medium off-white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma: pine, citrus fruits, grapefruit, tropical fruit, orange. Taste: lots of fruity hops, citrus, tropical, orange, grapefruit, sweet malt, caramel. Pretty bitter but pleasant, touch of alcohol but overall its fairly well hidden, medium bodied, fairly well balanced. A very drinkable DIPA. Im sure this would have been one of the best beers ever when it was first brewed 9 years ago, still holds up well today.

Appena stappata si presenta il citrico, sembra di trovarsi innanzi ad una limonata, dopo il primo impatto compaiono i luppoli e comincia il grande piacere. Di colore lievemente ambrato con schiuma media, ripropone in bocca il citrico mescolato con una sapiente luppolatura che la rendono decisamente piacevole.
