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.

GregClow (3151) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 19, 2005
Draught (cask) sample at O’Brien’s, San Diego. Hazy ruby-amber colour. Aroma and flavour are both quite hoppy, very fresh and tea-like, with some sweet fruitiness to back it up. Mouthfeel is very soft, as expected from a cask ale. Very nice stuff, great way to kick off the night at O’Brien’s.

alexanderj (3527) - Branson, Missouri, USA - APR 10, 2009
Bottle (I got one for you Jon too). Poured an auburn color with a medium, long lasting khaki head. Aroma of yeast, red malt, pine, citrus, earth and flowers. A bit muddled. A touch of creaminess in the palate. Flavor was strong; hoppy and malty. Caramel, toffee, citrus, flowers with a dash of pine. Flavor was a bit unrefined, but it had alot of nice components to it.

italarican (1543) - 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.
