COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In the seemingly endless cruelty, battle, and strife of the Hyborian age, a warrior has but two pleasures: Decimating one’s enemies in battle, and a horn of Cimmerian Sabertooth Berzerker to slake the thirst of victory.

Pours slightly hazy gold with some head and decent retention. Aroma is the DANKEST IPA I’ve every laid nose to. Pine, cedar, cheesy hop cones, some mango and honey but mostly smells like some medicinal chronic. Taste piney parmesean cheese, some grapefruit and tangerine, big cedar finish. Body is medium, creamy/dense, low carbonation, super long complex bitter cheesy hop finish, surprisingly balanced though. Overall, easily the best double IPA from the Floyds and certainly the best being brewed in the Midwest right now!

This has been a want since I read the name about 18 months ago, roughly -- 22oz bottle poured into a fancy tulip. Caramel, light brown pour, clear color with pillowy white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is green and earthy, resinous. Flavor is a very nice candy sweetness that a great hop backbone, very much opposite from most IPAs I drink. There is a distinct lingering hoppiness, pleasant and lasting. I like it.

Ktwse (2213) - SWEDEN - DEC 18, 2014
Pours hazy orange amber with low white head. Aroma of citrus, fruit and loads of caramel. Taste is initially light pine hoppy followed by a fairly heavy boozy sweetness, then a lingering resin bitter finish. Medium to rich creamy body with average carbonation.

boto (1890) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - NOV 30, 2014
A friend picked up a bomber at the brewpub. This one pours a cloudy orangish color. There was a thin off white head that left no lacing. Pine, orange and pineapple notes to the nose. Maybe a bit peppery. The taste is very good. Somewhat bitter, with a fuller body. Pineapple notes, orange, lots of malts, with no sweetness. Very Nice!

Patrickctenchi (4070) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - NOV 23, 2014
Bottle: Cloudy, orange, with a light tan head. Apricot, tangerine scent. Strong orange sticky sweetness followed by a an equally intense heavy peel bitter. Thick and malty. A bit of alcohol bittering and warmth. Strong stuff in every aspect.

shrubber85 (7947) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - NOV 21, 2014
Bottle. Tangerine, peach, and pine/grapefruit peel aroma. Hazy golden yellow with giant head. Very sweet tangerine/apricot malt and strong bitter pine/grapefruit peel flavor. Not bad - a pretty typical I2PA.

dwm1034 (662) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 17, 2014
Split bomber with sherm1016. Pours a hazy orange / amber color with a few floaters. Nose is bold, hop forward .... as is the tastes....bitter is the only word to describe it....bitter upfront and bitter at the end....with a touch of booze....good stuff.

Medium on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, caramel, some bread, some pine hops, with a sweet, malty finish. Nice.

Chuckaduck (669) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - NOV 15, 2014
Bottle. 11/16/14. Pours vivid and rich color of cloudy gold-amber with a fluffy off-orange and cream-colored head. Aroma excellent, is citrus (orange), caramel, pine, honey, light colored fruits, spicy, candi, floral, sweet tarts. Taste is aggressively in your face; huge hop profile, highly assertive fruit rind (grapefruit, orange), pine, some resin, grass, caramel, bread; finish is long and bitter, grapefruit rind. Dense lacing throughout. Medium carbonation. Mouth feel is wet, slick; medium-full bodied. Loaded with bitter hops, "decimating" seems all too appropriate a word.
