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.

Bomber via StefanJ! Arrrgh Matey! Immediate surrounding presence of hops as soon as cap is off. Pours a deep translucent amber with just enough light to see the steady carbonation. Head is adequate but still onthe smaller side for my liking. Malt balance to offset the sizable hop intensity is spot on for this strong beer. Ten percent does not show thru. A singular tone of wavy hops about malts from start to finish. A big brew to have before dinner at the steakhouse.

beertholomeus (1654) - California, USA - MAR 26, 2014
Pours a burnt amber color with a khaki head and beautiful lacing. Dank, resinous hop, caramel, malt and citrus aroma. Big resinous hop, malt, caramel, toffee and citrus flavors. Medium full body and average carbonation. Very bitter but very well balanced. Caramel and burnt citrus finish.

Beaver (1621) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 11, 2014
22 oz bottle. Pours red amber with a big creamy off white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is sweet caramel malt blended with green resiny hops.

The flavor is some sweet nutty caramel malts and lots of fruit with tons of piney resiny hops. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, a nice big hoppy red. The alcohol is well hidden.

jefcon (1612) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - MAR 22, 2015
Strong citrus aromas with a citrus bite up front. Drying and somewhat bitter, like orange peel, with a serious amount of IBUs.

Mittenator (1612) - Michigan, USA - MAY 30, 2014
Bomber thanks to tepp. Hazy reddish copper with a beige head. Super malty aroma. Tart and hoppy.

Bomber; thanks Alex!! clear copper with eggy white head; sharp, bitter hops; malty sweet; texture is on the thin side; hoppy, sharp, sweet and crazy dry; nothing subtle here; quite malty and expectedly a little over the top

RedSox2004 (1599) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JUL 14, 2012
Pours a deep reddish brown/mahogany with a two-finger thick tan head that dissipated to a solid film and left great lacing. Pine hops were the strongest aroma with big roasted malts clearly present. A delicious beer, strong resinous hoppy flavor balanced with strong maltiness that lingered in the background. Medium body with light carbonation that left a real good mouth feel. A big, big awe-inspiring beer

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

Dixonian (1562) - Plano, Texas, USA - JUL 17, 2011
On tap @ The Bruery Provisions Store. Deep amber brew - aromas of pineapple, grapefruit, and lots of caramel malt. Flavor of pine and citrus hops with a huge malt backbone that made this quite smooth and drinkable despite the 100 IBUs.
