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.

World-class ale with a dark amber/ruby color.Very well-balanced burnt malt/hop nose with citrus,caramel.What really sets this beer apart is its very unique and silky texture.Intense resinous taste with notes of grapefruit,burnt caramel,some smoke and a good bitter finish.I could’nt think of a better name for this beer.

22oz bottle -- pours a caramel brown, ruby when held to the light with a thick off-white head that lasts. Aroma is hoppy with grapefruit notes. Flavor is malty on the front of the tongue, and has great grapefruit hoppiness on the back. Finishes relatively clean. Surprisingly less sharp than the Stone IPA.

the first thing i thought about this beer was how much the malt and hop aromas and flavors stood out individually, in very big ways. also the hopping is wonderful! drink this beer

Flipbrewer (33) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 17, 2003
A rich, assertive but nicely balanced West Coast ale with a quite complex aroma and flavor. Poured with a beige med-sized rocky head that's fairly long lasting; good lacing. Deep amber color with coppery red highlights. Slight chill haze typical of bottle conditioned beers; cleared as the beer warmed. Perfumy floral hop bouquet with underlying citrus-grapefruit notes. Sweet caramel malt nose with a myriad of fruity esters that I was a bit hard pressed to put my finger on; perhaps raisin and plum with a bit of pear? Noticeable alcohol aroma that became more evident as the glass warmed. Flavor starts with a rich malt sweetness and bold hop bitterness that follows through to the finish. Fruity esters emerge mid-palate with a subtle toasty note. Malt richness dries a bit towards the finish but the hop bitterness remains assertive. Palate has a velvety firmness enhanced by a soft carboantion. Very slight astringency in the aftertaste. For all its bold arrogance this brew actually mellows a bit (relatively speaking) as the glass warms making it a nice ale to enjoy at a leisurely pace.

Great appearance...pours a dark red color with nice head. Slight malt flavor and a bitter aftertaste. No distinct aroma to speak of.

Delicious beer. Dark red. Some malt. Hop overload. Oddly smooth. Excellent.

Ruby colored with beige, foamy head. The sweetness from caramel malts dominate the nose and cover most of the hopexplosion of the taste, which is rather piny. The aftertaste is really dry. But a nice, full-bodied, complex beer.
