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.

AWISLguy (1163) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Bomber from Cardinal Wine in Niles shared with ck1. April 2011 date on bottle. Pours orange red with a foamy solid orange head leaving great lacing. Aroma has sweet caramel, fruits and hops. Taste follows with sweet malts, dark sweet/sour fruit, tropical fruits and a range of hops. A bit rough, quite typical american strong. Finishes sweet and sour, and grainy with malt. Curious what an April 2012 one would taste like.

Sampled at Rapids Liquor tasting. Dusty, peppery, malty aroma. Taste is not good in the beginning, transitioning to a cracker malt finish.

Reviewed from notes. The appearance has a hazy amber body that leaves a one finger white foamy head and lasts for a minute. The body is too dark for any carbonation to be seen. Some spotty lacing coats the sides of the glass. The smell has some citrus, pine and hops up front combined very nicely. The taste brings back the hops over top of the citrus and pine. On the palate, it sits about a light to medium with nothing harsh on the tongue, sessionable. Overall, this is a great beer that I would no doubt have again. Thought it seems close to an IPA (smell and taste), it still is something worth seeking out.

minutemat (1305) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2014
75cl bottle @ The 2nd Shrewsbury Bottle Share, courtesy of Paulo. Very hoppy from the off with a eager bitterness squeezing the life out of those tropical hops. Its tongue numbing dryness gets a bit much though and I would’ve welcomed a bit more fruitiness. Still, a good introduction to this brewer for me.

BlackHaddock (3485) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2014
Final beer of the second Shrewsbury Bottle Share on 24th Feb 2014: cheers Paulo for bringing this brew along for the four of us the split. A red hue to this amber bodied beer, on top a well tanned crown. Intense floral hop nose with citrus notes in the background vying for attention with some semi-sweet molasses. The hops carry on into the taste, again with a citrus undertone to the bitter, dry front: the malts creeping into the taste later and giving a mini balance to the otherwise prevailing hop content. A good beer to finish on, tests your taste buds and leaves you wanting more: a very interesting brew, hides it’s alcohol well within the flavours.
