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.

trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 9, 2006
This beer is huge. Pours dark crimson with a tiny tan head. Aroma is mostly hops and caramel malt, with some fruitiness. The taste is very strong. Thick with malt and caramel, but offset by the heaping of bitter hops. Some citrus towards the back. Creamy mouthfeel with some stickiness. Its a sipper, but a really good one.

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.

ksurkin (1021) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - MAR 23, 2010
22oz bomber, 2010 release, fresh from beverages4less. pours brick-red with a thin, fluffy, light khaki head and a sticky ring of lace. aroma is excellent, strikingly similar to Stone 13th, with huge hop notes of resinous pine, pink grapefruit, candied oranges, a wet grass with unique notes of sweet berries, canned peaches, and light clove spice and a hint of sweet, caramel malts. flavor is wonderful as well with big, spicy, herbal pine notes, grass, grapefruit, and orange citrus up front backed by notes of peach, white pepper, and toasted, caramel malts. palate is full bodied and slightly sweet but not cloying with a massive bitter finish sporting a touch of boozy warmth. overall, a wonderful brew than conjures up sweet memories of fresh Stone 13th which makes it a sure winner in my book.

Pours deep copper with orange hues and a small off white head. Nose is big pine, grapefruit and caramel apples. Taste is perfect balanced sweet and bitter with the finish a little on the bitter side. Mouthfeel is crisp and sticky, big body and a huge finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber into pint glass, "enjoy by 040513" A- Deep amber, a bit cloudy, two finger lacy white head. S- Citrus hops, sweet malt, very nice T- Very hoppy, bitter, the hops are not citrusy like they are in the nose, quite sweet, but a strange sweetness. M- Good consistency, a bit low on carbonation. O- Decent beer, smells great but the taste doesn’t hold up. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 06-28-2012 05:18:36

On tap at the Liar’s Club: Dark amber with a loosely knit head. Nose of citrusy hops with lots of crystal and melanoidin malts. Hugely thick and sweet. Flavors are way overly sweet, very unattenuated. Not enough drying bitterness.

Naven (1000) - Poway, California, USA - FEB 10, 2007
On tap @ Brewery. Holy hell is this a hoppy amber beer. Ratebeer lists this beer at 6.4%, but I swear I read it was stronger. I could be wrong, who knows. The beer is a beautiful amber color, and the nose is one of the better aromas I have smelled in many months. This beer truly does buckle the tongue, and that’s always a good thing. Excellent beer.

beerisgoodforu (992) - Nørresundby, DENMARK - JUN 19, 2012
Tap. Pours a dark reddish color with a beige head. Aroma is of lots of bitter grapefruit, pine, caramel and sweet malt with some bready notes. The flavor is quite bitter with nice bitter grapefruit and pine, with a nice lingering bitterness, with the caramel and sweet malt with the bready notes. The body is medium with a dry mouth feel. Overall a pretty tasty Imperial Red, and it kind of reminds me of Arrogant Bastard.

FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 12, 2005
Red amber color, frothy small white head. Toasty and sweet notes complemented by a muted grassy hop aroma. Very sweet, some crisp huskiness but not enough to dampen the almost cloying sweetness. Hops most noticable in the finish, some resin and citron. Mouthfeel is medium and smooth.
