COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Eagle Claw Fist utilizes the same Chico yeast that shaped Hoppy Feet and Brown Angel. Canadian Two Row, English Crystal, and a little English Black Patent malt provide a sweet, balanced backbone. Simcoe, Centennial, and Citra work together to create a unique hop assault, with an intense bitterness that manages to leave your palate in one piece and is harmonized by the flavors of tropical fruits and flowers. The finish is dry.

yngwie (13194) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle. 22oz. A dense, off-white head forms over an unclear, amber colored body. The aroma has a lovely maltyness blending with the citrusy, piney hops. Caramel hints. Its quite bitter in the flavor, with caramel maltyness and resins and pine cones. Full body and a pleasant carbonation level. Lasting finish with a lot of bitterness. Overall, a really nice one, although a bit one dimensional bitter. Yeah I know its malty too, but still. 131231

alcaponejunior (438) - Texas, USA - DEC 9, 2013
Pretty nice looking, poured the bomber into a tall 20oz imperial pint glass, topped off with the last couple ounces. Rusty copper colored, some haze, many small, fine rising bubbles, a tannish head that had pretty good staying power and left good lacing. Ive seen this beer listed or spoken of as different styles, imperial amber, amber ale, American strong ale, but Im really getting an almost barleywine vibe from this one. Aroma has that heavy, pungent maltiness of a barleywine, but a little more of the smooth caramel malts, toffee, and bread. Flavor is reminiscent of a barleywine too, but a little smoother, with lots of maltiness, a touch of chocolate malt maybe, some toffee and caramel, some crackers and breadiness, topped off with a heaping helping of bitterness. Body is thick and chewy with a bitter finish, leaving lingering pungent malts and lingering bitterness. Alcohol is not very noticeable. Its quite a tasty barleywine for an American amber/imperial red/strong ale/whatever it is. I did rather enjoy it tho, will have to try something else from Clown Shoes.
