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.

HonkeyBra (3374) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - OCT 29, 2013
22 oz. bottle. Pours a rich red pour with a nice tan head. Aroma of big, bright hops, red cakeish malts, touches of pine, citrus, resin. Touches of caramel, toffee, cereal malt, and maybe a bit of spice. Flavor is big, rich, bitter. Lots of bitter hoppy notes, focusing on pine and resin. Fairly balanced with some spicy red malt sweetness. Bits of cereal and carbonation. Full bodied, a touch stick, thick mouthfeel. Finishes long and bitter. Hell of a beer.

Beerathon (1167) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 19, 2013
Color- murky, ruddy brown. Head- lacing, tacky, slightly creamy. Smells like a barely wine or strong ale and the taste is along the same lines. ABV is evident. The hops a big in this, but more on the spice notes than on anything citrusy (unfortunately).

Daytonbeer (645) - Ohio, USA - SEP 6, 2013
Pours reddish cooper with off white head and no lacing. Aroma is a great balance between citrus/pine hops and caramel malts. Taste is dominated by the hops with a classic ballast point pine hop aftertaste. The rich malts keep it drinkable. Wow.

tmoreau (2424) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - SEP 5, 2013
Shared bomber at Lunar Brewing Co., and poured to tulips showing a cloudy, brownish copper color, a decent layer of creamy, light tan head foam, and good cling to the waves & spots of lacing. The nose was substantial, caramelly malt, very little sweetness, fruit, citrus, and resin. The flavor was additionally dry, light spice,( rye influence?) and hefty, very lingering hop bitterness, tempered just enough by the abundant malt. Alcohol was masked by the hop, but was well aware of it’s presence as I continued. Medium to full bodied, and quite potent!

fluffy (1666) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - SEP 1, 2013
boy, when they say this is a tongue buckler, they arent kidding. a super hopped red, but still drinkable as the malts balance it out just enough. potent.

rougeau13 (2002) - Richmond, Texas, USA - AUG 28, 2013
Muddy caramel color with an off-white head. Aroma of citrus, bread, caramel, and pine. The taste is quite bitter with a subtle sweetness and nice background fruitiness. Medium full bodied, a touch spicy, with average to smooth carbonation. A little dry. Very nice.

BazookaJoe (239) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 23, 2013
Pours dark brown with noticeable booze and hops in the nose. Big punch of hops that finishes surprisingly balanced for being over 100 IBU's. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

650 mL bottle. Translucent copper with a film of head. The mild, sweetish aroma does not prepare you for the big, big beer that this is. Caramel, lots of hops, and as much bitterness as I’ve ever encountered in an American strong. Big body. Some booze at the end. Great beer.
