For those mornings when you have to cut right to the chase, this is the one. Sure to blast through just about anything still lingering from the night before, this mouthful of Hops and huge rich Malt has a gaurantee built right into the name!

Another winner from Lagunitas. Pours a rich copper color. Has a fruity aroma and a nice clean, crisp finish. One of my favorites.

sloth (2568) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - DEC 27, 2008
Small white head, decent retention and a coating lace. Clear copper color. Ample fruity nose mainly citrus grapefruit pine and pineapple. Medium body with a sprightly carbonation. Medium sweet maltiness, light touch of graininess with more fruitiness apples, apricot, heavy caramel malts and just really juicey and resiny. Lightly sweet finish with a fair bite. Bottle acquired @stateline liquors and in a recent trade with DirtyMartini.

blutt59 (6067) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 24, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2009 bottle, gorgeous golden color, head is soapy and short lived, very heavy pine and apple juice nose, flavor fights back and forth between the malt and hops with finish that is a little flat

blipp (6495) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - DEC 17, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2009 Bottle. Pours orange with an off white head. Sweet aroma of pine resin and citrus fruits. The flavor starts sweet and well balanced, with citrus fruits and ends with a nice bitter piny hop finish. Very nice.

clasley (153) - Arkansas, USA - DEC 13, 2008
650 ml bottle. Pours a clear golden amber with a nice off-white head. Aggressive pine and citrus filled nose. Hops take center stage right off the bat with tons of citrus, fruit and resin notes. Otherwise ample malt profile seems rather anemic against the intense hop bitterness. Lingering bite in a semi-dry finish.

Fin (7894) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2008
On Tap at the Blind Tiger Ale House, New York, 19-11-08. Good looking beer with a white lacy filmy head. Shards of jagged hops reach out in a Tim Burton ‘Nightmare Before Christmas’ jaggey finger type way into every nook and cranny in the mouth. There is a sweetness in this beer that gradually reigns in those jaggedty hops, but there are hoppy burps aplenty, those are some zappy hops but there is a good sweet malty base to this beer I like it but I think that there are better around.

UPDATED: APR 30, 2009 Bottle shared by paul. Pours a light copper body with a white head. Pine and fresh grapefruit, big malt backbone with light etoh in the finish. HInts of citrus and strong hop resins. 3.8 Had again tonight v.nice aroma of citrus, pine, grapefruit, and a light honey aroma. Sweet chewy hop body, lots of citrus and honey, i love 100+ IBU’s (102) flavor dominated hop bastards. This is delicious. 4.1
