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.

Bomber. Poured with small tan head, nice dark color and plenty of chill haze like a homebrew.Nice hop to malt balance, not as "thick’ as it looks. Head gone in seconds but laced nicely. The hops end up dominating the palate when all is said + done. Worth the $4.50 at the CandleWick in Buckingham, Pa

Opens with a great pour - nice color and an incredible aroma that begs to be consumed. Flavor is what I expected from the bottle and very different from the aroma - very sharp,bitter and aggresively hoppy. Not for the inexperienced palate, but worth at least one bottle to experience the taste.

Lots o hops! Pours a nice amber with a medium head. Very bitter at first but goes down pretty smooth. The beer is arrogant.

The label said that I probably wouldn’t like this beer, and it was right. Very hoppy and bitter, but it isn’t as overbearing as some APAs.

Dark color with a medium sized light brown head. A bit sweet with heavy hops flavor. I am not usually one for very hoppy beers so I can’t relate to others of similar style, but it seems to be a very good beer.

Had on draft. Had a herbal hop and malted yeast smell. Taste was very spicy with a grassy, hoppy finish.

Bottle. My expectations were very high for this beer, but unfortunately I felt a little let down. It’s not that it was bad, but it wasn’t as phenomenal as I was led to believe. Anyway, it poured a deep ruby red/brown with a nice thick tan head. Aroma was strong malt, roasty, some hoppy/citrus notes. It was quite bitter with definite citrus hoppiness, but there was a very firm, sweet maltiness. Some alcohol and oiliness. There was something up front, the very first taste that hit me, but I couldn’t place it. I’d drink it again, but I wasn’t blown away.

UPDATED: SEP 6, 2008 Poured from a bomber. Poured a deep amber/copper color with an inch thick off-white head. Aroma of hops, some fruit, and spice. Initial hit of malt with some fruit undertones lead to a stiff helping of piney hops that give it a crisp. dry finish. I can’t wait to get my hands on the oaked version.

Bottled. Rather complex and enjoyable overall. Maybe some dusty, coffee tones. I agree with other raters that this beer grows on you because at first I was not sure what to expect.
