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.

Very good but not as great as some is putting it out to be. Alcohol comes out stronger but less than it should given the 7.2% content. Heavy to the tongue, sweet and bitter Typically I can’t drink more than 1 22oz bottle without the taste becoming too overpowering. A nice shock when first drank, evne though the aroma warns you already.

SG111 (120) - - SEP 22, 2014
Bottled. Enjoy by date is 08/19/14. A month past its date but oh well. chestnut dark brown color with nice dark beige colored creamy head. Notable lacing. Aroma is malty, citrus, hops, piney, slight earthiness, sweet malts, biscuit maltiness. Flavor is orange, citrus hops, caramely, lots of sweet maltiness. Nice dark fruits in the middle of the mouth. Noticeably bitter finish. Nice mouthfeel as well. Really creamy.

22oz bomber from liquor store on 101 in Encinitas. Great brew, a little too much hops for style for me....don’t get me wrong but I love hops but reserve it for IPAs great malts just a little too hop centric for an ASA.

liquidhedonism (68) - Beaverton, Oregon, USA - SEP 15, 2014
22 oz bottle from Albertson’s in Hillsboro, OR. Aroma has hints of raisins, cloves, and leather. Mouthfeel is creamy, smooth, and sweet at first, then bitterness takes over and lasts long into the finish and aftertaste. Definitely worth repeating.

jsnicholas (141) - Woodinville, Washington, USA - SEP 12, 2014
Bottle (22oz $5): Pours a clear dark red with off white head. Lots of hopps, lots of malt Citrus smell. Pretty good beer but I personally do not like the bitter after taste.

angel77 (957) - oviedo, SPAIN - SEP 12, 2014
Botella de 65 cl en cimmeria 12-09-2014 (cata). Edición 2014. Color ámbar oscuro cobrizo turbio. Aromas bastante lupulados con toques de caramelos ligeramente tostados. Cuerpo medio con 7.2 vol. Sabores iniciales que recuerdan a las red ales con tonos maltosos dulces de caramelos ligeramente tostados, aunque por poco tiempo pues el regusto amargo seco se va incrementando cada vez mas, perdurando durante un buen rato en boca. Bastante buena, increíble final amargo seco duradero. Gran cerveza.

Bootlegger007 (44) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 10, 2014
Hoppy fruity aroma, pours a dark murky red, lots of hops and leaves with a bitter aftertaste, full bodied and creamy, did I mention hops, excellent ale, I am worthy.

Bomber (enjoy by 10.2.14) - Dark transparent ruby. 1 finger off white head. Just all around good. Evenly malt & hop balance. The slight high abv is not noticeable. Personally, a beer many may enjoy.
