Um Wolty,

that brew looks like the (same colour) first poo my kids had in hospital after birth! Naw.....that's just all wrong. I must admit I'm a wee dram sort of guy (single malt or drambuie) so what I know about good beer you could write on the bottle cap. Matilda Bay, out of WA, used to do a nice boutique drop but it looked a lot better than your brew Wolty!
Heh, I like insanely bitter, insanely strong beers. They seem to have the most taste for me.

Bitterness[edit]
See also: Hops § Brewing
Bitterness scales attempt to rate the perceived relative bitterness of beer. The bitterness of beer is provided by compounds such as isohumulones from hops used during brewing.

The International Bittering Units scale, or simply IBU scale, is measured through the use of a spectrophotometer and solvent extraction[7] a calculation is performed on this absorbance to give a result in IBU.[8] This technique was adopted at the same time as another method based on measuring the concentration (in milligrams per litre; parts per million w/v) of IAA isomerized α acids in a beer, causing some confusion among small-scale brewers.[9] The American Society of Brewing Chemists, in the introduction to its methods on measuring bitterness, points out some differences between the results of the two methods:

While the results of the IAA methods are practically identical to those obtained by the [I]BU method for beer brewed with fresh hops, the IAAs of beer brewed with old or poorly stored hops, and with certain special hop extracts, can be significantly lower than the [I]BU figure.[7]

The European Bitterness Units scale, often abbreviated as EBU, is a bitterness scale[10] in which lower values are generally "less bitter" and higher values "more bitter". The scale and method are defined by the European Brewery Convention, and the numerical value should be the same as of the International Bittering Units scale (IBU), defined in co-operation with the American Society of Brewing Chemists.[11] However, the exact process of determining EBU and IBU values differs slightly, which may in theory result with slightly smaller values for EBU than IBU.[12]

IBU isn't determined by the perceived bitterness of the taste of the beer. For example, the bittering effect of hops is less noticeable in beers with roasted malts or strong flavours, so a higher proportion of hops would be required in strong flavoured beers to achieve the same perceived bitterness in moderately flavoured beers. For example, an imperial stout may have an IBU of 50, but will taste less bitter than a pale lager with an IBU of 30, because the pale lager has a lower flavour intensity. After around 100 IBU, hop utilization is so poor that the number ceases to be meaningful in regard to taste, although continued hop additions will increase bitterness. Light lagers without much bitterness will generally have 8-20 IBU, while an India pale ale may have 60-100 IBU or more.[13]
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beer_m...ent#Bitterness

The Holgate Temptress is 10% and quite strong tasting, though 'only' 50 IBU's.

So this is outstanding. My second Exit beer ever. The first I had was their 3.5% Pale, also amazing. I've been missing out, I can see that now.

@Two Dogs, I might have bought a beer for us to share next time you are up. $29.00 for 375 ml. Ouch. But 18.4% It's definitely a sharer.
