22oz bottle acquired in trade with riversideak (thanks!). Poured a deep and cloudy brown color with a large sized off white head. Aromas of roast, citrus, chocolate, pine, and floral hops. Tastes of citrus, roast, pine, and some dark fruits. Had a light tart finish. Lacing left on the glass.

Very interesting and tasty. Berry-like sweetness with some black malt on the nose. Nice dark pour with a fluufy khaki head. Wrigleys flavor, some tartness, and lots of methinks EKGs. Thanks Andre! TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - OCT 25, 2008
On tap at TND. Pours a deep brown with amber notes and a medium bubbly light tan head that laced. Aroma of fresh hops, toasted malt, chocolate, lightcaramel and pine. Flavor is all hops up front, pine resin, grapefruit, caramel, chocolate...loads of hop flavor. BrownDogBeer (50) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 22, 2008
22 oz bomber. Pour dark brown with a tan head that stayed for a while. Very heavy malt flavor. Medium body with a slight hop taste that lingers with a slight coffee/ bittersweet chocolate taste. Not as much hop taste as a typical IPA. Just enough to cover the malt. Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - OCT 19, 2008
Way too malty for my tastes, I think these so called darker IPAs will be a taste it might take me a while to acquire. It did make for a nice looking pour though, and obviously an amazing name and label. Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 17, 2008
Bomber. Poured iced tea brown with a lovely cap of beige head. The aroma picked up some odd notes of sour barley and caramel with some grassy and piney hoppage around.. smelled off. The flavor confirmed my fears by providing a sticky, sour mess with vinegar and oaky notes all over the place.. there was some caramel providing some body, but it didn’t accomplish much under the veil of the sourness.. same goes for the hoppage, which just managed to bitter up the sourness. Again sour on the palate and not at all pleasant.. I feel ya Ken.
