Brown/Copper and hazy on the pour. Caramel and light sweet aromas from the pour. The drink is intensely full bodied with a combination of malty,sweet and alcohol flavors all in one punch. Slight bitterness on the after taste. Not my favorite but somehow i found myself going back to it.

"the version i had,still called Tongue Buckler, was at 10%! and came across as a strong ale/hoppy bw/or sweet double ipa. generoua=sly hopped but candi malty sweet. very good. you could tell the abv was high, but no heat. big body, lasting malty finish with a bittersweet aftertaste."

Big bottle. Poured a reddish brown color. Murky. Aroma is caramel malt syrup, some floral citrus hop aroma, grains, toffee. Heavy bodied. One finger head. Average carbonation. This is big beer with malts, malt sryurp, and hops galore. This tasted old. Hopefull it was b/c I didnt care for it much.

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.

This is all of itís IBU. It starts with a roar and finished so dry that it became a bit of a mission for me to drink it all. The malt sweetness just held it together.
This is a fanboi beer, you love it, you love the people that love kit, you tried it and donít like , you didnít try it but might, or you wouldnít.
It isnít a middle ground beer.
I came down on slightly the wrong side of middle

Pours a clear mahogany with a fairly thick and fine-bubbled tan head that sticks around for a while. Malty aroma has a woody hop overtone and hints of cloves and hay. Bold flavor is quite hoppy and woody, rather like a good IPA, but scarcely bitter, malty and spice undertones provide support, and a hint of horehound rears its head. Texture is firm, and very lively and sassy. One, two, buckle your tongue!

Draft. Murky light brown color, coca cola head. Aroma of pine and butterscotch. Taste starts very sweet caramel and transitions quickly ti very bitter pine resin and scotch. Interesting.

On tap @ The Pony NYC. Cloudy really glowing deep amber - golden in the glass this one and it has a small but really lacing off-white top. Nice hoppy nose with lots and lots of peachy fruitiness. Really tropical nose, lots of pineapple and mango. A bit like nosing on a tropical juice in a way. Lovely. Yeah, itís hoppy this. Not overwhelming in any way, but they have added lots of hops in this batch. Soft oily to sticky on the mouthfeel and itís soft on the carbonation as well. Loaded with piney hops making this quite a real palate cleanser. The alcohol is hardly noticeable at all. Citrus, pine cones and birch dominates here. Really enjoying what Iím tasting, but I doubt I could drink loads of this in one setting. A glass however, perfect! 19.06.2013

Rich red robust and quite dry on the palate. And yep she is a bitter bitch of a beer.
