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.

italarican (1527) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - JUL 5, 2011
On tap at Rattle n Hum. Pours a deep amber with beige head. Aroma is full of resin and some grapefruit. Flavor has plenty of spice; sure makes the name appropriate! Delicious hoppiness full of resin and some citrus. What stands out the most, though, is the surprisingly thick, creamy mouthfeel. With plenty of spice and hop bite, this makes the finish stellar.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5669) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 30, 2011
Sampled on draft at Smokin’ Joe’s this beer poured a dark caramel color with a large creamy orange-tan head that lingered forever and left great lacing. The aroma was sweetish pine, grapefruit and resin but was a touch faint. The flavor was bitter and tangy with notes of caramel, pine, resin, grapefruit and was a bit harsh. The finish was long, tangy, pine and resin. Full bodied. Interesting.

clear amber small white head, nice lacing... malty citrusy aroma, lightly sticky smell... Lively malty sticky sweet body, lotsa hops, finishes dry, full bodied, but not bitter in a tongue buckling fashion because of the sweetness...
