COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rich caramel malt sweetness is beaten over the head with bright, fresh American hop flavors of grapefruit citrus, pine and tropical fruit in our Double IPA. This beer is the bigger, more successful brother of Kidnapped by Vikings.

Thanks highwine! Taste is good. Pours reddish orange with a white head. Fruit bowl aroma hint of caramel. Melon, grass, some orange and grapefruit peel taste. Medium body with light carbonation. Good mouth feel. Lacking on the hop department but not maybe because of freshness? Not sure when bottle.

Poured from a 22oz bomber that I got in trade, thanks Justin. Aroma is citrus, tropical fruit, and caramel. Flavors are citrus, tropical fruit, caramel, and light pine. Very nice balanced double Ipa! Love all the flavors I get from this beer. Another solid beer from solemn oath!

HonkeyBra (3108) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Although I’ve had this on tap before, 22 oz. bomber. Pours a reddish amber color with a thin white sticky head. Aroma of herbal and tea hops, as well as citrus and floral hops. Touches of pine. Flavor is focused on citrus hops and with some bready malt backing. Full, thick mouthfeel. Some booze towards the finish. This drinks a bit heavier than 7.7%. Pretty powerful, but tasty stuff.

Hazy amber/orange color; Medium slightly creamy body; Aroma of pine hops, floral, & citrus; Flavor of malt, pine hops, caramel, and citrus; Finish is fairly bitter; Not too bad.

juicyhops (48) - Grayslake, Illinois, USA - JAN 3, 2014
Bomber. Wonderful nose of fresh citrus hops. Hazy orange. Fresh hop flavor of fruity hops. Grapefruit rind dominates. Very low bitterness. Medium body.

ryecatcher (642) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Bomber. Pours a hazy, burnt orange, medium white head, little in the way of retention. Nose is some grass, cereal and burnt rubber. Mouth is medium bodied, grainy, bread dough, some moldy oranges, and a bitter finish that does nothing to round out an unflattering palate. I’d heard good things about Solemn Oath, but I gotta be honest, this was a real disappointment -- especially at 8.99 for a bomber.

hombrepalo (1757) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 1, 2013
Pint poured Hopleaf. Pours a hazy orange straw with a small white head and good lacing. Stars with a citrusy hop aroma, but quickly shifts to a roasted malt finish. Smooth flavor that retains both its malt profile and hoppy finish. Pretty good.
