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.

dlovell2 (1373) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 9, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2015 Pours amber with a beige head. Aroma is malty with some sweet fruity notes and grapefruit. Flavor starts out caramel with oranges and finishes with huge grapefruit rind. Really dry hoppy bitterness. Definately buckeled my tongue.

CelticBrew (912) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - JAN 9, 2015
Pours from bomber an incredible dark amber forming a nice white head of foam. Aroma pungent upfront, sweet caramel malt and a big-ass floral hops and field grasses. Flavour of peppery bitterness, sugary sweetness, finishes with an ultra aggressive level of more hop bitterness and a sticky sweet grainy finish. Superb and satisfying beer.

Christpuncher (2280) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 5, 2015
Awesome red ale. Super hoppy flavor and slightly piney. Smells citruscy and finished dry and hoppy. Had at the graton pours deep red. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

beer-yum (994) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 5, 2015
Subdued aroma and dark brown colour gives not hint of what is to follow. This brew is aptly named. A huge malt hit to start is quickly tamed by a similarly scaled dose of hops. Surprisingly, the combination quickly balances itself out and recedes - leaving a mild bitter finish.

Fantomasus (289) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 1, 2015
Pours a decent amber with an off white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is pleasant but simple. Flavor is nice but way off balance to the bitter. Nice palate although slightly sticky. It’s good.

mcberko (10578) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 25, 2014
22 oz. bottle, pours a cloudy dark amber with a small off-white head. Aroma is well-balanced between intense caramel malts and resinous hops. Flavour is quite robust, with loads of resinous hops upfront, balanced by just enough caramel malts. Intensely hopped, but tastefully done. Robust and extreme imperial red ale. Excellent.

Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 8, 2014
It’s a big arse beer this one by any stretch of the imagination. It is reddish amber in colour with some greyish cream coloured head. It has perfumy apricot and stewed peaches, rosewood and pecans. It has a big oily body with just about every rich plummy flavour previously described. There’s a bit going on up front, but don’t expect much subtlety. It disguises its abv well and has a fairly lengthy finish. And then all of a sudden it doesn’t mask its abv so well. What?
