A little bit of a sharp after taste but good flavor. Not too dark. Great for Ipa flavor.

Surprised to see this show up at the local distributor, only in 1/2 bbl kegs, I thought this beer had been retired but it is back with a heck of a hops wallop. Very aromatic hops, darker amber color and heavier in body than most IPAís and seems to have that 8.8% alcohol at least. Give this one a try.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 18, 2007
On tap at MacTarnahans Taproom in PDX (8.1% ABV) --Poured a copper-amber body with a small whitish head. Nose of piny, bitter, acidic hopiness. Grainy, metallic (slightly) and highly carbonated for the style. Bitterness and oily hops all over tongue. Not much bigger than the Thunderhead and similar flavor profile. Not well balanced, but definitely hoppy, and I like that in a beer.

Ungstrup (29369) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 18, 2005
A clear amber beer with a small off-white head. The aroma is sweet with notes of caramel and hops - though no overwhelming hop notes. The flavor is sweet and hoppy as well as grassy. A nice brew, but not as extreme as I had expected from the name.

Bottle. This stuff smells really hoppy. Has a nice opaque amber color with a slight lace head. Has a good flavor to it. Not too bitter but it bites you a little. Weak finish but overall a good beer

bb (6858) - Alamo, California, USA - NOV 1, 2004
Draft. Reddish amber color with no head. Pine malt aroma - big hops. Pine tar and citrus (grapefruit) flavors. Some caramel. Nice full mouthfeel. Can just feel the alcohol. By far their best beer. If they could make this a regular, Iíd be there more often.

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 20, 2004
(Great American Beer Festival 2004) Very fresh hop nose. Full and bitter Sweet and barley wine like. Average to good.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - OCT 13, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2004 Hoppy aroma and taste- Iíd guess itís close to 100 IBUís. But it does not hide itís alcohol well.

I love this beer. So hoppy my mouth was in love. After a few pints do not drive home. Oh my goodness, I want some right now!

Heavy, VERY hoppy brew. Thick body, somewhere between a barley wine and an IPA. Alcoholy warmth after you've had a few sips. Head doesn't last very long unfortunately. Could be a little more malty for my taste. (this is a rotating beer that they make every few months at the local alehouses as part of their Brewer's Handle series.)
