COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Amerikansk Strong Ale. Mörkt bärnstensfärgad ale med kraftiga citrusaromer från användandet av amerikanska humlesorter och en speciell humlingsteknik kallad Hop-Bursting där man tillsätter kontinuerligt ökande mängd humle för att ge en kraftig humlearom. Humlesorterna är Amarillo, Brewers Gold, Cascade, Chinook, Columbus, Northern Brewer, Saaz och Simcoe. Den kraftiga humleprofilen balanseras av en rund och mjuk maltighet som kommer sig av användandet av mycket Mynchenermalt. Detta kompletteras av Pilsner-, Crystal, och Pale Chocolate malt. 2009 års version bryggdes hos Sigtuna Brygghus.

blafa (511) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 8, 2011
Bottle from systembolaget, Christmas beer tasting. Helsingborg, November 2011.
Bitter and sweet aromas of American hops, grapefruit resin and a caramel-like malty sweetness. Raspy taste with bitter hops, citrus notes and sweet malt. Some caramel notes as well. Flavours doesn’t really come together but I don’t mind it to much - the hoppines is quite tasty and good!

Cunningham (4492) - Halden, NORWAY - DEC 1, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2012 Bottle. Deep amber colour with a small quick fading white head. Ohhhh it smells amarillo mmm. Low carbonatin so it is a bit flat, but a warm mouthfeel, very hoppy and light malty.

tkrjukoff (4058) - SWEDEN - NOV 27, 2011
Bottle 33 cl, SB. Pours deep ruby amber with a great creamy shortlived beige head leaving lots of lace. Aroma is sweet, caramel, malty, raisins and bready. Flavor is hoppy bitter, grapefruit, pungent, has a good maltyness, sweet, some caramel and burnt brown sugar. Finishes extremely bitter and malty. Too much bitterness which gives a not so good balance towards the end.

Kastanjefärgad öl med beige medium skum. Både sötma från malten och humlebeska i doften. Torkad frukt, nötter citrus. En stor humlebeska i smaken balanserad av en maltig kropp.

VsXsV (2271) - Linköping, SWEDEN - NOV 17, 2011
33 cl bottle from Systembolaget. Clear, deep red/amber liquid with small to medium off-white head with big bubbles. Beautiful liquid but a bit short persisting head. Aroma is both malt and hop forward with notes of caramel, nuts, citrus, grapefruit, pine, tropical fruit and sweet malt. Really pleasant aroma. Taste is a bit malt sweet and medium to heavily bitter. Quite biscuity and bready. Some taste of minerals. Medium bodied with OK carbonation. Nice one, though a bit short lasting taste and quite harsh bitterness.

Vignale (2061) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 3, 2011
Mörk amerikansk strong ale med mycket humlearom men med en mörk fyllighet som balanserar bra. Gjorde ett starkt intryck och var nästan men bara nästan lite för mycket.

BeerSkull (1304) - SWEDEN - AUG 21, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2011 WOW! How this edition can be included in the Mohawks previous releases is a mystery! This is not the same beer! The aroma is very hops aromatic with fine floral and fruity notes. The taste has a soft maltiness that complements the hop aromas nicely, flavors you can find in the taste is such as flowers, tropical fruits, citrus, pine and sweet malt. A really nice and tasty beer!

Svesse (6140) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUL 14, 2011
(Bottle) Reddish amber colour, slightly unclear, with frothy beige head. Malty, hoppy nose with notes of caramel, treacle toffee, orange peel, dark rye bread, dried apricots, spices, hints of sweet sherry and lots of citric hops. Malty, fruity, hoppy taste with orange peel, dried apricots, dark rye bread, caramel, chocolate and generous doses of citric hops in the finish. Medium to full body, with a touch of sweetness, until the bitterness takes over. Lovely beer in excellent balance (and past its best before date by 3 months!).
