UPDATED: DEC 5, 2007 Pours dark amber forming a medium sized foamy head. Aroma of strong piney hops, malty sugars. Flavor is of strong yummy hops with a particular malty and bitter finish.

lordeche (479) - Quincy, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 27, 2007
Pours copper with thick off-white head. Strong floral hop aroma, a little sweet cotton candy, with a slight alcohol bite. Strong citrus bitterness with a bit of toffee smoothness. Nothing incredibly original, but delicious nonetheless.

jimbowood (1036) - Freeport, Georgia, USA - MAR 26, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2007 12 oz bottle. Just like the original Wild Dog, only repackaged w/ a new name. Very comparable to Gordon. Doughy, malty sweetness w/ an excellent hop nose but huge piney flavor. A really nice brew.

tennisjoel (1387) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - MAR 25, 2007
Pour is dark red with a generous sized creamy head, which is off white in color. Very nice aroma of citrus and grapefruit, similar to a two hearted or hopslam. The flavor backs it up, as well. Right along the same lines the flavor, and a very nice bitter bite. I also taste almost a skunk like peppery finish, and its a little dry. Im extremely impressed with this beer. One of my favorite strong ales up there with Arrogant Bastard and the like.

First sip conjured visions of tea steeped with a sweaty gym sock, full of bile. Second sip left me shuddering, i cant believe this beer can be this bitter and not be balanced by citricy overtones. Talk about bitter beer face! Beer starts out okay, highly bitter finish lingering like the last partygoer when you want to go to sleep! Do see some positive qualities to this beer, but dont think Ill waste another $6.99.

Had this at the brewery the week after release. This is a well balanced beer, higly complex, and a pleasure.

doormouse (14) - Hastings on Hudson, New York, USA - MAR 21, 2007
Amber color, white billowing head, nice lacing, faint aroma of hops, doughy, sweet smell, faint aroma of hops. Taste is strong and overpowering, very bitter almost sour with flavors of dried hops and pine. Biting aftertaste doesnt know when to quit.

RedXIII (127) - Powell, Ohio, USA - MAR 20, 2007
Cloudy orange pour with little lacing. Great aroma of floral and hops that is quite strong but not overwhelming. Taste is very complex with pine, hops, and a sour shot of citrus. Bitter, dry finish is awesome.

jredmond (7787) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 20, 2007
UPDATED: APR 29, 2012 12 oz bottle. Poured a murky-cloudy orange with a slight head. The aroma was very strong...and scared me. The taste attacked my tongue without mercy and left an aftertaste of some sort of sour fruit. A monster of a beer.RERATE:::: on draft at pony with Linh. 5 years, 1 month and 9 days later and Im interested to see the change in my palate, or perhaps in the beer itself. Pours a deep, hazy orange body with a soapy white lacing - looks like the cask pour. Aroma is cinnamon and nutmeg. Linh says it reminds her of a chai tea. Mouthfeel is thin with notes of ginger, tea, cinnamon, lots of hot booze, and bitter hops. I think this would be interesting if they dialed back the alcohol a bit. Overall too boozy and a bit unbalanced, but still unique. +0.4

12oz bottle. Hazy orange with a medium head. Fair lacing. Aroma is grapefruit and oily resin. Taste bring out the caramel malt. It actually has a fare backbone of malt. Oily and alcoholic texture. Medium-full body. Id almost say that this is reaching for the plinys, but it falls just short.
