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.

Heavy hop/malt aroma. Bloody red color with beige light brown head that lasts. Somewhat bitter but plenty of malt to balance. Caramel/munich malt sweetness. I read the label before I drank it so I was expecting something a little more ’harsh’ I guess but it turned out to be quite pleasant. This is a fine ale. The first time I tried this beer was the first time I ever saw ’Taxi Driver’, the greatest film of all time. Whenever I drink this, it makes me want to watch the film, and when I watch the film, it makes me want to drink this. ’May 10th. Thank God for the rain which has helped wash away the garbage and trash off the sidewalks. I’m workin’ long hours now, six in the afternoon to six in the morning.’ Not a session beer, drink this on its own, or drink it before you drink the other beers.

UPDATED: SEP 6, 2009 Shining ruby red color with a modest,inch,tan head floating like a cloud on it. Flavor is loaded with sweet malts and just as loaded with hops.It never stops.The alcohol shows it self at the end but by that time I didn’t care.The malts lead up to the bitterness all the way to the end.The finish changes from a overly bitter to very appetizing leafy bittersweet finish.

Dark red color with a nice medium sized head. Hoppy aroma that is delicious, not as overpoweringly hoppy as the IPA. The first sip starts very hoppy but nice creamy malt comes through in the body, the finsih is fairly bitter. I agree with an earlier poster that the malt doesnt quite balance the hops, but a very good ale nonetheless. The alcohol is certainly present and adds to the aggression, its an exceptional get home from a long night at work and put you to sleep beer.

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.
