Eagle Claw Fist utilizes the same Chico yeast that shaped Hoppy Feet and Brown Angel. Canadian Two Row, English Crystal, and a little English Black Patent malt provide a sweet, balanced backbone. Simcoe, Centennial, and Citra work together to create a unique hop assault, with an intense bitterness that manages to leave your palate in one piece and is harmonized by the flavors of tropical fruits and flowers. The finish is dry.

Smell is lightly grass lemon zest. Taste has a definite malt backbone with good balance and a good hop toward presence.

10/7/11. Slightly hazy brown pour with a small khaki head. Strong hoppy aroma, but they smell old. Big bitter hoppy flavor as well, but it again seems old, almost musty. Otherwise there is a bit of sweet fruits and lemon peel along with dark fruits and caramel. Reminds of a bitter old ale. Meh.

On Tao at the common table. Pours a deep mahogany with a thin off white head. The aromas are dough, old church, musk. The mouthfeel is dry and bitter with a heavy body. Cheers!

Ibrew2or3 (8508) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 5, 2011
Bomber pours a nice deep amber with copper hues and tan head. The aroma has some sweet somewhat rich maltiness and a nice level of pine hops to go along with lesser amounts of roasted malts and earthiness. This thing offers up a great taste with a pleasing load of pine hop bitterness as well as fairly dark roasted malts and bitter grassiness too. It doesnt seem these work together but they have enough body and depth to really meld and please. To midway faint earthiness and black tea are noticed while the pine hop goodness remains un-wavering in its rich yumminess.

monkeychugg55 (1075) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - OCT 1, 2011
Fairly dark amber-brown with a big tan head that leaves thick globs of lacing and retains very well. Lots of floral and citrus hops in the aroma, with a strong caramel presence. Nice malty body with caramel and bit of bread upfront, followed by strong hops, bitterness and a lingering, slightly burnt finish. Very full body with soft carbonation. The alcohol is very well hidden. Lots of flavor and a little too easy to drink.

Lots of hops in this, certainly bitter, yet still has a nice strong and tasty flavor. Doesnt seem very amberish.

tgncc (3126) - Bellmore, New York, USA - SEP 20, 2011
Hop forward for this style. The aroma is resiny hops, some toffee and molasses. The appearance is deep hazy amber/brown, big off-white head. The flavor is resin, pine, caramel, molasses. Again, hop forward. The finish is strong, lingering pine needles, resin. Medium to medium/thick in body. Pretty good.

Strykzone (7193) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 12, 2011
Sampled at an ESBLS tasting. Lightly hazy and brown. A nice funky rocky tan head. Big citrus hops in the flavor. Some nice caramel is also tasted. Just a bit of cinnamon spice. This is not bad.

Drake (13303) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 10, 2011
Sampled at the 2nd Annual Top of the Hops Charlottesville, VA beer festival, 9/10/11. Pours a hazy brown color with a thin head. Fair head retention. Aroma of floral, citrus and tropical hop notes with earthy malts. The taste is bitter metallic and earthy hops with a brown sugar finish. Medium bodied.

IPAsavedMYlife (346) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - SEP 9, 2011
Dark amber in color, reasonable sized off white head. Medium creamyness. Def some PNW hops in there, centennial dominate. Also lots of breadyness comes through in the nose. On the tounge, this thing is a hop bomb. Some more of the red breadyness of the malt flavor, but not very strong or complex. Plenty more hops come through in the flavor, and ends pretty bitterly. Well made, but dull.
