The name sort of says it all. John Maier, our Brewmaster, wanted to create a beer that defied traditional style definitions. The result was a remarkably hoppy yet balanced and malty ale that quickly became a cult favorite in our Newport brewpub. But what was it? It was not quite a barley wine and not quite a double or imperial IPA. Who really cares about putting beers into narrow categories? Great beer is great beer - just drink it and enjoy!

Without any look at the label except the name, pours a hazy yellow. The taste is kinda bland. The aroma is nice. After taste is long lasting ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle - the pour is cloudy with a orange body and a creamy white head. The aroma is hops, barley, something bright I cannot peg. Maybe hints of cilantro. The taste is smooth, I see the barely wine, and Imperial ipa, the overall impression I get is a strong imperial beer. Good hop backbone followed by a good malt base and bright citrus and hoppy finish. The mouthfeel is thick and smooth with a nice carbonated finish.

Grunt fill from Albertsons. Dark golden dragon en body, instant small, fluffy head. Big warm, malty aroma, taste Ramos up the heat. Boozy notes, sweet malts, small bitter hops bite. Really nice on this cold wet day.

Beerclubsa (147) - Strand, SOUTH AFRICA - SEP 1, 2016
Aromas of tropical fruit and background citrus hops with medium caramel/bready malt and low to medium citrus hops and some esters. Pours an orange-deep golden, quite hazy with a long lasting, off white head. The palate is well balanced, with a medium alcohol warmth and stone fruit hops mixed with bready malt and a medium high hop bitterness. Long, balanced finish. It may be because it was the last beer of the evening, but I didnt find the alcohol as harsh as some other raters.
