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.

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 (6862) - 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.

bubbleflubber (2167) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Pours a lightly hazed burnt amber into the glass, with a nice eggshell head that leaves webbed lacing. The nose is malty, of sweet caramel, with a hint of spices and fruit-candies. Flavors are burnt toffee, toast, biscuit flour, tannins, light melon and finishes of big, bold pine bitters and citric pine needles. Lingering hops for days in the mouth, coupled with an oily/resinous, yet light seltzery, active body. The dry peppering hops overbalance the malt sweetness in the finish, taking away from the "backbone"; thus, the palate is a touch more hollow than the rest of the contingencies would suggest. Either way, it’s still a tasty Impy Red.

mansquito (5474) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 21, 2013
The Gibson, Brooklyn tap ($7): Pours red with an off-white head. Aroma is hops: some fruity, citrus, bit floral, with a nice darkish malt backbone. Taste is quite bitter and dry. Hoppiness permeates, but rests on the malts. Good combination. Good, but not all that interesting.
