COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is an aggressive beer. You probably wont like it. It is quite doubtful that you have the taste or sophistication to appreciate an ale of this quality and depth.

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2007 Dark copper color. Off white, khaki head. Dominate malt aroma. caramel and a slight citrus zest finish in the aroma. very bitter, leather, alcohol, raisin, toast, Bitter from the first sip. pine, citrus, The texture of this brew is complex. Thick, creamy, chewy, yet very refreshing. Hop monster bitterness in the finish. Very bitter beer not for beginners. Good more for me! Arrogance is Bliss

Deep mahogany with off-white head which holds well. Aroma is carmel and citrus. Very much hops and citrus with a bit of carmel.

Nice start, smokey citrus flavor, but the taste turns flat at finish. Maybe bad bottle.

Bottle from trade with realale420. Thanks Brian! This is an awesome brew. Pours a rich mahogany color with a nice off white head. Leave plenty of nice lacing. Aroma of hops and caramel. Taste is wonderfully hoppy and with some citus overtones. Great all around beer!

A great beer no doubt. It has plenty of flavor to satisfy you. A very aggressive beer that I only like one or two of. Very hoppy for style. I believe it is a little unbalanced. I think due to the alcohol difference, the double bastard is better balance.

This is a great American beer. I was stationed in Germany for a year, and this is better than anything I tasted there. Bottle: Dark brown color, nice very light tan head. Smells sweet carmel. Tastes fantastic, bottle description is right it is "sophisticated" smooth bitter carmel hoppiness. Rolls down very smooth. I will be visiting this brewery on the next visit down to SOCAL. Superb.

GriffinAvenue (396) - Winchester, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 4, 2006
Draft. Deep reddish-brown. one finger foam. lacy head. Hoppy but much more body than average ale. Not overly bitter. Filling and easy slide down the throat on a rainy day.

On tap. Mahogany pour with thin tan head. Nose is pineapple and pine. Flavor is very smooth, malts balance out the pineapple and pine bitterness. Really good.

An overwhelmingly sweet grapefruit aroma. Not overwhelming in the sense that it is too much, but in the pervasiveness of that aroma over any malt . Roasted malt and Schnook. Fantastically well balanced and hopped. Great beer.
