COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Warlord is a monster of a beer. Itís the most heavily dry-hopped beer weíve 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 IBUís it is still well balanced. Do not operate farm machinery.

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.

Rich amber color; Medium slightly creamy body; Aroma of pine/floral hops, citrus, & some caramel malt; Flavor of sweet malt, caramel/toffee, pine hops, and citrus (notably grapefruit); Finish is bitter with some alcohol; Fairly well balanced; Overall, nothing exciting - decent I guess.

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 (1655) - 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 (4490) - 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.

Beerman6686 (3870) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2011
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.

presario (4533) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 9, 2011
Bottle. Dark copper-tinted amber. Good starting froth and lasting cover with lacing. Hoppy nose with lots of woody orange citrus. Thick syrupy body with slight mint and eucalyptus notes but mostly sticky malt and woody orange hops. 85 IPUs have trouble against the thick malt and ABV. A nice beer but a bit thick and not a IIPA standout.

TURDFERGUSON (3912) - Carrboro, North Carolina, USA - JUN 9, 2011
Bottle, RBSG. Pretty okay. Lots of citrus and caramel sweetness in the nose. Sweet at first, with big bitter finish. Always afraid to try stuff from McNeils as I had some bad experiences in college and this was just okay. well, pretty okay.
