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.

Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, - OCT 16, 2012
gorgeous mahogany colour with reddish latte coloured head. Crystal malt, amber and apricot aromas along with redwood, sweet figs and toffee brittle. I could go on... I will go on: spruce and pine resin. To taste there is an immediate FARK! noise as I realise what Ive put in my mouth. There was a full-on blast of competing flavours like an explosion at a caramel factory with apricot, glace orange peel, resin, chlorophyll and just every available adjective to describe American hops. This is just an excelsis of malt, hops and anger. It has the remarkable effect of numbing the back of the tongue like a throat lolly. To be fair, the label does suggest it will be an aggessive ale. "This beer hangs on to the parts of the mouth you dont expect them to and then gives you a thump." said my learned off-sider Ari. Theres just so much more that could be written about this remarkable, remarkable ale. This just describes for me the American ethos of bigger, better, faster. Remarkable.

Tap at Beer Salon Prague 2017. Deep amber, lingering head. Aroma herbal. Palate medium, high carbonation. Taste grapefruit, elderflower, bit of harsh earthiness. Long lasting biterness. Not very enjoyed, possibly spoiled keg shipped from overseas.

You read the label and you rated it below 100%, then this beer isnt for you. Go back to your amber piss water!

Bomber. Ruby color with a brown hue. Light khaki head. Woody, spicy, hoppy aroma and fig maltiness. Strong backbone. Dense malts, everything about this beer seems big. Quite a bit of pine bitterness, cake, brown bread, dark dried fruit. Full body. Bitterness and alcohol in the finish.

UPDATED: MAR 19, 2017 Barwa mahoniowa, piana średnia. Aromat karmelowy, cytrusowy, chmielowy. W smaku słodkawe, tytoniowe, przyprawowe ze świetną, mocną goryczką na koniec. Fajnie wykleja i grzeje gardło. Alko nie wyczuwalne.
