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.

(22oz bottle, courtesy of blutt59) Pours a nice medium amber/red color. Nose is huge caramel malts with some hops present. Smell is absolutely delicious. Taste is a huge hop attack on the tongue representative of the name. Very piney and the finish is also quite good.

Bottle from snojerk in another ridiculous west coast box. Pours clear red. Every sip is a different hop experience, evolving and deep. Aroma is distinct green apple. At first the hop is bitter grapefruit. Next sip is a bit of grassy pine. Then back to a citrus one again but more of an orange peel tanginess. Really tasty here.

Hoptagon (239) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUL 6, 2009
22oz. Bottle. Tasted side by side with the Stone 13th anniversary. Ruby reddish appearance with a thin white layer of froth. Nose is sweet with subtle piney hops. Loads of bitterness on the tongue that is supported by a heavy tasting maltiness. Tons of citrus peel, oily resin and a bit of caramel. Finishes with a lingering bitter flourish. Not bad, but unbelievably it tastes smooth next to the Stone 13th.

Bottle from Joey @ South Bay Drugs. Let me just start off by saying that this beer is an all out assault on the palate. Pours red with a quickly vanashing white head. Decent lacing on the glass. On the palate it’s a tongue stinging mega IBU monster. Medium bodied mouthfeel. I loved it!

Another bottle shared by wolf man... Red in color, good malty aroma. Taste is way to malty as well. Better than the Coranda Red Devil that was shared side by side..... They arent balanced at all... 107 IBUs ???? Bullfeathers.... I didnt pick up any of that... Below average from a great brewery. Oh well they all cant be winners

RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - JUN 29, 2009
Pours reddish brown with an off white head. Aroma of grapefruit, caramel, old hops, and brown sugar. Tastes pretty sweet with brown sugar, caramel, and a fairly relaxed hoppiness given the aroma. Fulled bodied and creamy, nice.
