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.

Thanks, SoLan! Exceptional hop aroma. Flavor is sweet and hoppy, with citrus and caramel both being strong and balanced. Very good.

pours a nice copper color with a good tan head which lingers for a while. Aroma is dominated by grapefruit and Pineapple. flavor is of bitter pine and grapefruit hops with some carmel and nut flavors in the background. finish is bitter and dry with a slight alchool presence. overall, this is a very nice Red Ale.

Bomber. Smells like caramel with a decent amount of spruce. Very powerful and bitter. Pucker power with a sweet malt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Cole’s in Buffalo, NY. Deep ruby red pour. Kinda boozy and very very heavy. Just a heavy beer, that’s the best wording I can think of. Good beer, nice hop bitterness for a red. But wow, chewy, heavy. Kinda tough to get through.

April 15th, 2012 - I can’t remember where in the line up this beer was placed, but I dearly hope it was near the end. The Tongue Buckler earns its moniker, featuring overflowing, bold flavors. The color is a cardiac red, juicy with color, and deeply cloudy, giving off the visual of a potion more than a beer. The aroma is very strong, with the sweet caramel, red apple and malts of a good Irish red, but sticky with sweeter sweets like cotton candy and passion fruit. The flavor consists of a warm, caramel core, wrapped in a fresh, powdery bubble gum sweetness. The palate isn’t too sticky or heavy, but there is a heavy dose of alcohol, and a long dry aftertaste that contrasts with the saturated sugars in the beginning. It is well balanced, but incredible strong, and another one of those beers which, at the time of this tasting wasn’t in bottles, but dearly deserved to be.

22oz bottle shared by riversideAK, thanks man! Amber brown with a bit o white head. Dusty, peach, pine and call me crazy but I get some light smoke. Kind of sweet with dusty fruit and then bitterness. Alcohol warming on the way down. Woul like to try this again sometime...but fresh.

On tap at Taps in Petaluma. Pours a thick brown color with a lot of frothy head. Sharp alcohol and lots of hops. Good maltiness.
