The I.B.U.s (International Bitterness Units) are off the scale on this ale. Be forewarned, those with a timid palate, this is not a wee beer!

piscator34 (2408) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 29, 2012
Bottled sample via and shared with oakbluff. Amber in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of flamed orange peel, caramel malt, pale malt, and black pepper. Medium bodied with the orange-caramel-spice blend continuing on in the mouth. Moderate bitterness. Too heavy on the malt for me, but solid overall and clearly well made.

Didnt do much for me, total malt bomb (perhaps old?) that was very thick. Didnt need the high ABV and syrupyness for something that really didnt have much flavor.

Tap @ fg with e. Dark red pour and a modest head. Spicy aroma with a spicy, malty palate and some bitterness in the aftertaste. Not very memorable but good.

Bomber into pint glass, "enjoy by 040513" A- Deep amber, a bit cloudy, two finger lacy white head. S- Citrus hops, sweet malt, very nice T- Very hoppy, bitter, the hops are not citrusy like they are in the nose, quite sweet, but a strange sweetness. M- Good consistency, a bit low on carbonation. O- Decent beer, smells great but the taste doesnt hold up. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 06-28-2012 05:18:36

65 cl bottle @ hotel room, Santa Rosa. Enjoy By 23.03.2013
Aroma is floury and stale with resin, some vanilla and hops. Flavour has alcohol, resin, some oat and ripe fruits. Too much on the sweet side, although the resin here is nice.

Between job drink. Lovely deep amber with creamy off white head. This is Arnie from Twins. Full, muscular, but with a softer, sincere side. Massive pine and citrus rind...almost burning the tongue residually. Full body, but not sticky. As balanced as a beer called Tongue Buckler can be. Biscuit malt but the Tsunami of hops stays long after.

RedSox2004 (1840) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JUL 14, 2012
Pours a deep reddish brown/mahogany with a two-finger thick tan head that dissipated to a solid film and left great lacing. Pine hops were the strongest aroma with big roasted malts clearly present. A delicious beer, strong resinous hoppy flavor balanced with strong maltiness that lingered in the background. Medium body with light carbonation that left a real good mouth feel. A big, big awe-inspiring beer
