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 (1526) - 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.

peteinSD (1433) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 28, 2012
On tap. Murky brown, rusty colored pour with a slight head of tan foam. Aroma is medium pine and hop bitterness over a roasted malt and caramel back drop. Taste is somewhat restrained hop bitterness with pine and thick, sweet malt that has a roasted, char character. Mouthfeel is thick but even. I was a bit surprised as to how restrained the hop character was on this beer but it was a nice beer just the same.

GranvilleTim (1778) - Granville, Illinois, USA - JAN 3, 2013
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!
