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.

A reddish amber ale with a very thin off white head. In aroma, fragrant and vinous malts with smooth c-hops. In mouth, a clean biscuitty caramel with smooth c-hops, Stone-like, very classy, sweet caramel in finale. On tap at Boston Beer Summit, Jan. 15 2011.

AirForceHops (3101) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 4, 2011
22 oz bottle. Shared with LiteWait. Nice ruby pour with hints lighter hues around the edges. Looks like iced tea in the glass. Small thin head that leaves lacing along the glass. Grapefruit hops in the aroma. Very Hoppy. Possibly cascade hops and a little bit of malt. Pretty light mouth feel with very light carbonation. Quite a bit of bitterness in the finish. However I am not a hoppy beer person. So maybe its not so bitter. Should this be labeled an IPA??

22 oz bottle. Shared with AirForceHops, glad I didn’t buy this….. Nice ruby pour with hints lighter hues around the edges. Looks like iced tea in the glass. Small thin head that leaves lacing along the glass. Grapefruit hops in the aroma. Very Hoppy. Possibly cascade hops and a little bit of malt. Pretty light mouth feel with very light carbonation. Quite a bit of bitterness in the finish however I am not a hoppy beer person. I’m not a fan of the style.

LtDan (1784) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - DEC 24, 2010
Appearance: Pours a dark amber with a dense, fluffy beige head. Leaves behind creamy lacing.

Aroma: Big pungent citrusy hops and faint brown sugar.

Taste: Grapefruit, burnt sugar. Finishes rather herbal.

Mouthfeel: If my eyes were closed, I would think by the taste and mouthfeel this is an IPA. I was afraid this was going to be syrupy, and it’s far from it.

Overall: Pretty solid, and very hoppy the way I like it.

nickd717 (3477) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 13, 2010
Pours a nice mostly clear reddish amber color with a one finger off-white head and decent lacing. Very nice aroma of caramel malts and rough citrusy hops. The flavor is slightly sweet caramel malt and big rough citrusy and orangey hops. Medium body with average carbonation and a pretty nice mouthfeel. Surprisingly good for a brewer I didn’t know what to think of.

PhatB420 (623) - Pittsfield, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 10, 2010
22oz bomber sutied with a backdrop of natural gas fire situated in the Berkshire Mountains. Cant recall the last Imperial Red I have had. Faint and quickly dissapering head. Smell is sweet at first whiff then tart with candy like sudsidies that bounce around the ol factory. Color is suber dark red. Fits the beer. Taste is sweet, then bitter, then sweet, then bubbly with fresh flower garden expressions that last a lifetime. Control of the facets that bring the body make this a memorable red from a well balanced brewer. Great brew!

bbbeer (586) - Massachusetts, USA - SEP 5, 2010
Cloudy brownish red with slight head. Aroma with mainly citrus/pine hops. Medium-full body, flavor is very dry with bitter hops and just a touch of malt. More like a DIPA than anything else which I was not quite expecting given the color. Not that complex but not bad.

thornecb (4354) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 3, 2010
Pours deep mahogany into a Sam glass. Off-white head recedes to hug rim. Grapefruit and resin aromas. Thick with upfront pineapple and mango turning sharply dry and bitter in the lasting hot grapefruit finish.
