COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is an aggressive beer. You probably wonít like it. It is quite doubtful that you have the taste or sophistication to appreciate an ale of this quality and depth.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2010 1Pt. 6oz. bottle. Healthy tan head. Dark molasses/amber color; pretty dark tone until held to a light, when it turns almost orange. Fresh outdoor, earthy hops aroma. Heavy textured body that tastes precisely how it looks. Heavy hops with a powerful nose bite that lingers in the throat after a swig; the alcohol flavor seems to come primarily after the swig. Notes of grapefruit; oak-ey earthy flavor settles with the brew in the stomach. Descent lacing. Iím a bit disappointed, but only because of the hype. Nonetheless, this is a damn good beer. Great for a pale ale lover. The alcohol content is pretty warming after 22 Oz. too, which is nice. [RE-RATE] Donít think I ave had this one since my initial rating over a year ago. The appearance is great. Dark clear mahogany/copper color with a tall pillowy lacing light tan head. I think the aroma out weighs the flavor this time around. Pretty bitingly bitter without the hop flavor complexity that I hope for in hop bombs. Bumping this one down from 3.9 to 3.4. The flavor is a bit of a mess. Plus, I hate the name and corny "hook" attitude.

Bought this at Beers of the World, 3450 Winton Place, Rochester, NY. Not sure whats more aggressive, the beer or the hype printed on the label. Iíll spend my 6 bucks/22 oz elsewhere next time.

[Bottle] Pours deep amber with a small off-white head. Aroma is dominated by caramel malt and brown sugar with the light citrusy hops more of an afterthought. Taste is about the same with a light bitterness in the finish. Medium mouthfeel. Not a bad beer by any means, but it just seemed rather average. Iíll give it another shot sometime, since this was sampled towards the end of a tasting.

22 oz bottle. found this to have a sweet hoppy fruity nose. Poured a dark amber,liked the hop flavor and bitter finish, and the fact that the flavor lingered for quite a while, but just wasnít my favorite flavor.

Clear amber brown with light brown lacy head. Floral aroma with a hint of melon when first opened. The taste starts out sweet and malty and finishes slightly bitter. A very nice ale that seems widely available, at least out here in California.

Great beer. Very bitter and grassy with the first sip. The hops stays with you for a few seconds after you swallow. If you look at this beer with a light it has alot of crap flaoting in it (probably pure hops or ground grass) This beer is not for beginers. Whenever i have a little extra beer money i always buy a few of these. Oh and i like to put it in the freezer until just before it starts to slush then drink it (aaaawesome!).

Bottle at GBBF ’08. Copper colour with a small off white head. Rough vegetal malt aroma. Strong sweet taste with a currious suggestion of natural gas. Some honeyed malt and a mid bitter finish. Rough, tough aggressive beer that doesn’t quite live up to its billing.

Tasted somewhere along my trip through the States.
Amber, brown colored brew. Sweet malty with some hops. Some hops and fruits and bitterness in the flavor. Good be more balanced.

UPDATED: JUN 17, 2009 Amber brew topped by a tan head, this ale left me wondering the buzz is about. No citric, yes to the caramel and malt, but a bit too bitter for me. ON TAP YESTERDAY--much smoother and more complex
