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.

Reddish-brown pour with a light tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, alcohol and spicy hops. Taste is bitter hoppiness that settles as you continue to drink. At first, the hops explode then settles. Roasted malt is also noticable. Very hoppy as described-big beer=big flavor. Ok lacing. Another fine beer from Dakine!

Bottle thanks to Scott! Pours a hazy copper red with thin off-white head and light lacing. Atoms and taste of sweet caramel malt, toffee, and slight piney hops. Solid beer, bittersweet finish.

ddemmingjr (749) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - APR 2, 2013
Bottle: pours clear, deep amber, reasonable sand colored head, some lacing. Small bubbles of carbonation form an interesting pattern along the surface. Nose is cooked caramel, toffee, toast, butterscotch and herbal hops. Full bodied. Biscuit, pine, caramel and crystal malt sweetness, molasses, cedar chest and some varnish flavors. Pine hop bitterness and varnish on the finish. This has a little heat but overall, solid big red ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Miked1687 (608) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUN 17, 2013
Bottle Poured into glass. Red Amber pour with an off white head that laces nicely on its way down. Aroma is grass and pine hops. Definitely heavy on that profile. Taste is bitter for sure. Intense resiny pine hop bitterness with a sweet malt backbone that fights to stick around but is quickly overtaken by bitter hops on the long finish. buckler indeed.

Rando7 (767) - Iowa, USA - JUN 19, 2013
Bottle pours nice red color with thin white head. Aroma pine hops. Taste a bit of malts with pine hops. Finish pine and resin hops. Interesting full palate with nice tingle from hops, carbonation and alcohol.

About what you’d expect from something called Tongue Buckler. Too one dimensional for my taste but if you want a bunch of hops here you go.

ryecatcher (933) - South Side of Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 27, 2013
Bomber. Pours a slightly hazy, deep copper, fluffy white head, outstanding retention and ridiculous lacing. Nose is tropical fruit (heavy pineapple), pine and some malt underneath. Mouth is full-bodied and bittersweet up front, chewy citrus and tropical notes riding a malt backbone and almost oaky, bitterness prevails and runs through a gamut of fruit then some ABV warmth going down with a long hoppy finish. Really nice Imperial Red.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUL 15, 2013
Serving: 22 oz. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a deep red color with a thick, light tan head. Nice head retention. The nose has notes of citrus pith, resin, and caramel with a touch of alcohol. It’s a big beer on the tongue with a brief dose of caramel then a long bitterness with notes of resin, earth, and citrus. Medium to full body with average carbonation. Recommended.

HonkeyBra (3643) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - OCT 29, 2013
22 oz. bottle. Pours a rich red pour with a nice tan head. Aroma of big, bright hops, red cakeish malts, touches of pine, citrus, resin. Touches of caramel, toffee, cereal malt, and maybe a bit of spice. Flavor is big, rich, bitter. Lots of bitter hoppy notes, focusing on pine and resin. Fairly balanced with some spicy red malt sweetness. Bits of cereal and carbonation. Full bodied, a touch stick, thick mouthfeel. Finishes long and bitter. Hell of a beer.

Clear red. Big piney aroma. Flavor big and piney with evident abv. Sweet medium colored malts. Some hints of mid color crystal maybe. Better as it warms and loses some carbo.

HIGHB4LL (795) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 23, 2015
Bomber from Dillon Ridge. Appearance: 2 fingers tan head, copper red color, cloudy, ok lacing. Aroma: floral caramel, light citrus. Palate: medium, sticky texture, bitter finish, average carbonation, light booze. Taste: sweet malty caramel into floral and grapefruit hops and bitterness. Overall, very smooth, booze is hidden, very nice.
