COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Warlord is a monster of a beer. It’s the most heavily dry-hopped beer we’ve ever made. The caramel and slight notes of apricot come from the generous user of domestic and British malts and although it has a bitterness of 85 IBU’s it is still well balanced. Do not operate farm machinery.

Wow, much larger head than I expected after the minimal pfffft that occurred once I opened hte bottle. 3 inch high head of fine bubbles that is nice and creamy on top. Nice hoppy aroma with lots of citrus and flowers, some tangerine, a bit of roasted malts and some green apples. Color is a dark copper brown. Wow, noticable alcohol presence and warming from the very first sip. Decent malt backbone which gives a bit of sweetness to offset the plentify hops bitterness. A very smooth bitterness, not harsh in the least bit that lingers long after the swallow. Some grapefruit pith and spruce play on the tongue that rounds out with some crusty toasted bread. This is a damn fine and well balanced IIPA.

Tap at the Peculier Pub with Ethan. Clearish brown-ruby pour with a moderate head. Toast, caramel in the nose. Medium to big sweet flavor, slight plastic and rubber, earthy bitterness. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Pine, earth finish, bit more bready, toasty malts and caramel. The off flavors subsided gradually making the beer pretty decent.

From a bottle poured a copper color with a fair amount of head. Nice hoppy flavor with a quick finish.

I think my comrades might be a bit harsh on this one. The aroma is malty with caramel and dark fruits. The pour is cloudy amber with a lacing head. The flavor has the fruits and caramel but is balanced nicely with a hop bite in the end. The finish is assertive with a nice peppery hop feel, dry and clean.

Jesterdeal (1984) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - AUG 2, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2011 Aroma of malts, sour barley and sugar. Pours hazel with a small solid head. Tastes overly malty with roasted hops barely in there. Tastes like someone made "instant" beer like an iced tea mix.

jgb9348 (4891) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUL 31, 2011
Clearish amber coloured body with a copper glow and a thick, three centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of fresh hops, pine, pineapple, grapefruit, alcohol, resin and quite a bit of sweetness. Medium to Full-bodied; Strong hoppy flavour with pine and herbal tastes at first with quite a large bitterness, some deep nutty malt and a little sweetness on the end. Aftertaste shows some rather deep flavours for the style with a lot of resin and sprucey hops. Overall, an okay Imperial IPA, too strong on some tastes and not enough on others - a bit too potent, plus the 65 cL bottle is way too much of this one. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Liquor Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 24-July-2011 for US$5.95 sampled at home in Washington on 31-July-2011.

Great ale. A taste of hoppolicious heaven. Great draft brew. Great double IPA.

This poured a medium orange color with an off white head. Aroma was light grapefruit and pine, and lots of caramel malt. Flavor was very bitter, but not muich hop flavor, overly sweet and not too great.
