This is an aggressive beer. You probably wont like it. It is quite doubtful that you have the taste or sophistication to appreciate an ale of this quality and depth.

22oz bomber. 05.24.04 Deep mahoganey pour with minimal halo of a head. Reeks of grapefruity hops, alcohol, citrus grove. Its hoppy. The taste is mostly hops, abusive, numbing hops. Almost totally linear like chewing on the pith of an underripe grapefruit. Maybe some raw, earthy, grassy barley at the finish. Pithy, ridiculously astringent, dry. Interesting, but not something Id trip my grandma for to get the last bottle on earth.

This beer is so impressive that it has a god named ABA in a Pantheon of Mantrip golf gods. Lesser beer drinkers should go have a Bud Light with their tail between their legs.

It pours a dark ruby with little head. Flavor is dominated by sweet caramel and butterscotch, with only a mild hops presence. I was expecting a hop assault, but this was smooth and pretty drinkable. Maybe Ive just been jaded by the many super-hopped beers out there. Not really what I expected, but good nonetheless.

This was my first beer rating. Ive had a few beers in my day, but have been stuck with the normal, everyday bar beers. My friends have talked me into expanding my adventures. This was my first. Very impressed with their choice. This beer had a flowery aroma with a stong hops presence. Full bodied, and a very impressive start.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 27, 2004
Very faintly hazy orange brown under a small shortish lasting pale beige head. Big hoppy passionfruity malty burnt caramel sugar and estery tropical fruity aroma. Becomes even more aromatic hoppy as warms. Big smooth chewy butterscotch like body. Medium strong short malty sweet start. Softer lightly spiced dryer middle before back to strong smooth bitter hoppy finish. Went down very nicely with a quattro giusti gourmet pizza from the local pizzeria.

UPDATED: JUL 1, 2006 This beer is very good. Pours out dark brown with a slight beige head. Flavor is intense and the name rings true. very good brew. I rated this thing a 2.0 about two years ago, but I was wrong. This brew deserves much better.

Nexxus (261) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - MAY 26, 2004
Hazy medium amber brown with a lasting frothy medium light brown/straw head. Very sweet aroma of grapefruit, pine, plum, toffee, apricot, and a hint of spice. Medium thick syrupy body with soft carbonation. Flavor of resinous pine, oak, toffee, grapefruit, apricot, orange peel and ginger. Huge thanks to footbalm for this one, which he generously provided for free. I owe him a few. Excellent!
