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.

Johnsense (701) - - OCT 12, 2013
Dark red pour with a baby finger of head. Aromas still fairly hoppy, some toffee in there as well. Piney hops, toffee, fairly sweet, some citrus fruit in there as well. Slight burnt character in there as well. Wouldn’t mind a fresher sample but with a bit of age on this its still pretty good

Habanero (2134) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - OCT 9, 2013
Bottled. Pours slightly hazy amber with a lacing, off-white head. Aroma of burned malt, pine and some citrussy hops. Sweet flavor that ends up dry and with some bitterness. Medium bodied, oily text. and soft carb. An excellent brew.

jmarsh123 (163) - Indiana, USA - OCT 3, 2013
Pours a dark red with an everlasting tan head. Smells of lots of caramel malt with some piney scent from the hops. Taste is up front caramel what you’d expect from an amber, but also a load of piney and a bit of citrusy hops. Roasted malt notes are also detectable. Finishes extremely bitter and dry at the end of the palate. Mouthfeel/carb are pretty spot on for the style. I like my ambers hopped up, and this is a good beer, but I think they missed on the profile a little bit. Everything ends up being a bit too bitter when the roasted malts and piney hops are added together. Maybe a bit more lean toward a citrusy hop could have made it a tad less harsh.

OK this guys is hard to describe. It might be because of the assault from the jalapenos in the burger but; There is a solid malt backbone to this guy that is in the frontend and finish but fades for a bit while the hop dominates the middle. There is a sweet note just after the hop bitter that is not unpleasant. As an encore there is a bitterness in the back corner of the mouth. A real hard one to pick flavors as the change is really fast. But in the front and finish there is burnt malt, 90% cocoa and some leather. the hop is dull but pronounced. I used up just about the entire bottle trying to pick out favors. There is a lot going on here. Almost forget there is a crazy lacing from a thin layer of foam that stays with the pour until the end.

5000 (6027) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle:   Amber, moderate frothy sandy head, spott lacing.   Soft pithy nose, faded pine and citrus.   Similar tongue, much more pithy that I expected to the point it seems a little astringent.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Decent malt base.   Finishes with a slightly earthy malt and pithy citrus peel.   Could use some more sweetness.
