COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is an aggressive beer. You probably won’t like it. It is quite doubtful that you have the taste or sophistication to appreciate an ale of this quality and depth.

Dark cherrywood red color with a small tan head and lasting lace throughout the session. Very nice, big aroma of citrus fruit - ie/oranges. The body is very hoppy (almost one-sidedly so) with big citrus notes and a touch of alcohol. Also a substantial amount of malt, but not enough for this amount of hops. Fairly nice, but a touch unbalannced.

Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 25, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2003 Garnett amber hue. Nice beige head with some lacing. Big aroma, of dough, flowers. Big TASTE. Sweet, pleasant first, medium bodied, chewy, caramel, big bitter hopped out finish. This brew is incredible. Too much flavor. You probably won’t like it. This beer on draught is f’n incredible, highly recommended.

DONT DRINK THIS ALONE!!! The sheer intimidation of this ’arrogant bastard’ will be enough to strike the utmost sense of fear into any beer expert. This beer will bitchslap, taunt, and beat you if you are not careful. Its strong, rare and served in 22oz bottles. So watch yourself...If you think you are worthy.

Great beer, but pretty strong and bitter. Nice flavor once you know what to expect.

UPDATED: MAR 20, 2008 Until I find something better, this will remain my favorite beer of all time, despite not having the highest rating.

jpfrog (130) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - OCT 20, 2002
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2003 This beer is the ultimate. I love it and cannot get enough of it. I wish that I had a tap hooked to the side of my head and a keg strapped to my back full of this stuff. Definitely my new favorite.

I thought that this brew would be much more hardcore after reading the back of the bottle.

A citrus (grapefruit) aroma highlighted with a little raosted malt characteristics are the first things that I noticed about this beer. The beer starts sweet and finishes bitter. The flavor lingers just to let you know that your not drinking fizzy lemonade. Good stuff.

The malt (melanoiden)flavor is quite overwhelming but is backed up by plenty of hops a great session beer
