Prepare to walk the plank to an Ale of overwhelming proportions. More hops & more malts than any land lubber can handle. After this experience...your tongue will be buckled. The I.B.U.’s (International Bitterness Units) are off the scale on this ale. Be forewarned, those with a timid palate, this is not a wee beer! Handcrafted in small batches for those sailing the seas in search of great ales.

Peacehammer (624) - California, USA - APR 24, 2012
pours a very dark red. With about one finger of head that dissipated. Malt and hop aroma. An aptly named beer. All hops up front with a great dark malty finish, which is surprising. Only a slight hint of alcohol on the aftertaste.

Marheb (3284) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 7, 2012
À la pompe au Decicco: Extrêmement floral avec des courants sapinés, terreux, terriblement résineux. En bouche, c’est une attaque autant des malts que des houblons, créant une viscosité incomparable. Un vrai délice qui me fait penser à la Mad man de Hart n’ thistle en terme de corps et d’explosion des saveurs.

douglas88 (7330) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 3, 2012
Bomber from the Best Damn Beer Store. Pours a clear dark amber color with a medium beige head. The aroma is sweet caramel and light fruity hops. Nice rich flavor is toast, caramel, bitter hops, light fruit, lingering caramel and bitterness. Pretty mellow despite 10 percent.

Nickls (2001) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - MAR 22, 2012
Tap. Creamy khaki head on a deep hazy ruby brown. Grassy and herbal hops in aroma and some doughy bread and slight caramel. Much drier in the flavor very herbal, grassy, sticky hops, and dry crackeriness. bit of minerals in the finish. Kinda soft thicker body. Odd brew

vtafro (4929) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - MAR 20, 2012
Draft. Red brown pour with tab head. Red hoppy brew with a kick. Pine and light citrus, earthy tones. A bit more grassy , herbal , and earthy than I’d like.

peteinSD (1433) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 28, 2012
On tap. Murky brown, rusty colored pour with a slight head of tan foam. Aroma is medium pine and hop bitterness over a roasted malt and caramel back drop. Taste is somewhat restrained hop bitterness with pine and thick, sweet malt that has a roasted, char character. Mouthfeel is thick but even. I was a bit surprised as to how restrained the hop character was on this beer but it was a nice beer just the same.

Growler filled at DeCicco’s In Ardsley, NY Nose boldly of hoppy goodness Pours ruby hued amber, med. tan head, stays and then leaves a thicker collar and plenty of fine lacing. Dense layers of hops, resins and spruce. Big and bold brew, with complexity and flavor abounding. Alcohol, character and density of flavors adds up to a quality brew thats well worth seeking out.

GT2 (9408) - San Diego County, California, USA - FEB 20, 2012
Tap at Churchill’s in San Marcos. Pours a clear amber to near red. Moderate lace. Nose is red fruits, toffee, brown sugar, fruit juice. Hints of sherry. Taste is syrupy, sweet, sticky, moving to sharp tanginess with brown sugar and lemon maple. Lemony and toffee finish. Pretty intensely sticky. Very sharp mouthfeel. Long sticky plus resiny bitter finish. Headache inducing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
