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.

reebtogi (5835) - Edmonton, Alberta, - FEB 10, 2013
660ml bottle pours a copper color with a small white head that leaves no lacing behind. Aroma is caramel and lighter fruits with some grapefruit hops. Taste is a bold grapefruit hop bitterness with some tropical fruit and caramel malty sweetness and a hint of alcohol with a grainy finish. Medium to heavy body with mild carbonation. Overall, this is like a hoppy barley wine and I really enjoyed sampling this one.

Diabobale (468) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - NOV 20, 2016
Color ambrato opalescente con cappello di schiuma bianca cremosa dalla buona tenuta. Al naso unesplosione di frutta tropicale (ananas, mango, papaya, passion fruit), melone e leggermente di polpa di pompelmo.In bocca ancora frutta tropicale e un po di agrumato. La parte maltata bilancia fin troppo lamaro, rendendolo poco spinto e aggressivo. Corpo medio, vellutato, carbonazione bassa. Lattenuazione non perfetta e la birra ne risente di poca secchezza.

Bottle shared at the RBESG 14, Grander Tasting @ Moncada, 09/08/14. Lightly hazed golden amber with a moderate off white covering. Nose is earthy hops, barley wine vibes, bitter citric peel, candyfloss. Taste comprises melon, grapefruit, orange pith, spice, earthy hop presence, caramelised sugars. Medium + body, fine carbonation, punchy citricana in the close. Still very drinkable at 3 years old, turning towards a barley wine.

beerfest5 (1207) - Cloneen, IRELAND - JUN 27, 2014
660mL bottle, 9.5%abv. Pours an orange amber, tiny white head that dissipates quickly. Big sherbert and grapefruit aroma, can tell from the nose that this is going to be fairly well balanced with caramel and toffee to combat the bitterness, taste equals that along with some booze burn. Carbonation is off a bit, not that I want too much but this needs a bit more, can make the case that it too closely resembles a Barleywine with this little carbonation. Finish is pure hoppy bitterness with booze burn.
