Drinking notes from GTM 05: Wow lots of different hop notes. Beer is much better once it warms up. Hop notes blend a lot nicer.

Very, very bitter with hints of floral goodness. The bitterness seems to over power everything though. This stuff isn’t too bad, but I wouldn’t go breaking down any doors for it.

draft at the brewery. big hop aroma with some scent of pine. Reddish orange in color with a frothy white head. Nice flavor of spice and sweetness. Good body with sweet flavor that dries out at the end. I enjoyed this beer.

On tap at the brewpub. Light copper with oranges and yellows. Light ring of off white foam. Fruity esters, piney hops, and a touch of caramel in the nose. Huge amounts of hop flavor (Fuggles). Very nice. Starts out sweet and dries out at the end. Very nice beer. I’d love a case.

grapefruit-copper body, hazy, soft white head; a little spice, some earthiness, and citrus--apricot, says the menu; an ipa, but WHAM#$! what i will never forget is that every gulp ended with a massive dry and bitter hop decapitation attack--awesome.

Really, really bitter. Nutty, walnut, almond flavors -- like a roasted chestnut. Floral dominates the nose. Pale malts. Fairly good.

brownish in color thick off white head well laced.. smells very piney hints of gin like aroma some light sweetness too. Full oily thick palate. Very piney flavor reminded me of some gin touch of malt.. brought thoughts of pine sol to my head.

English IPA... man, I didn’t know the English liked overly stale piney beers, that seem relatively balanced, but only because the hops aren’t burning the throat. Not that it was horrible, but the piney hops overwhelmed the first taste. Complete and full off-white creamy head, dark amber body. Piney vomit and gin aroma with some nacho cheese Doritos. As mentioned before, the flavor is a lot of stale piney hops. Some buttery bread in there too. There is some generic underlying sweetness... I suspect that and the type of hops (non astringent) kept it on the fringe of balance.

This beer pours out as cloudy copper color with visible signs of sediment floating around in the glass. It has a good thick head and leaves a nice complement of lacing on the glass. It enters the mouth dry and sour and then proceeds over the taste buds with a nutty bitter flavor. This beer spreads smoothly through the mouth leaving a nice easy bitterness lingering in the throat. This is a good beer but one would expect a beer named after a barbarian to have a little more bite.
