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.

5000 (6298) - 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.

Yorker (1306) - Herning, DENMARK - AUG 6, 2013
65 cl bottle @ home. Pours reddish amber with a little sediment and an off-white head that leaves some lacing. Flavour is peach, citrus, pine, and caramel – with a bitter finish.

bubbleflubber (1850) - 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 (3513) - 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.

JorisPPattyn (8014) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUN 22, 2013
Medium to good yellowish head, irregular, over deep copper-amber ale. USA hops, resiny, bit vegetal, faint exotic fruit (passion-, rosewater), bit vegetable oil. Bitter-metallic; bit of dried fruit with all sweetness overpowered by the resiny hops. Finish is quite a bit empty, short of watery. Quite spritzy, slick-oily but not very well-bodied. Finish lets down, rest as expected.

ansalon (1558) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - JUN 17, 2013
Pours a hazy dark amber with a medium tan head. Nose is full-bodied with caramel, molted leaves, ripe fruit, pine cones. Taste is extremely well balanced with caramel and rye bread marrying togther with molasses, ripe fruit, grass, hay, orange zest, honey. Very very good indeed!
