COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The tenacious grip of big, juicy hop aroma and character slides smoothly into rich, dark malts. This heavyweight battle between fresh, Yakima Valley hops and dark, roasted malts is resolved harmoniously as the flavors merge to deliver complex satisfaction with a warming edge. Enjoy the twilight for the bright and brassy hops!

The pour is a dark red with some very thick head that laces quite well. Smell has a really strong hop profile, almost too much. On the taste, the fresh hops are so strong that its almost like earwax. However, it is tempered from this by a decent malt backbone. On the aftertaste the pine comes through quite well. Though this beer is almost too agressive to be enjoyed by a casual beer drinker, it certainly is great for those who see Arrogant Bastard as too timid.

Pours a dark reddish brown with a small amount of off white head. The aroma is sweet and dominated by roasted malt with a little caramel and hoppiness mixed in. The body is medium and the taste is slightly bitter with a good mix of malt and hops as well as some coffee notes. This is much less hoppy than your typical IPA and I would best describe it as a combination of a hop devil and a storm king. As a matter of fact, the aroma is almost exactly the same as a storm king. I like it.

Dark, clear, amber pour with a big off-white head. Hoppy aroma with a touch of dark fruit sweetness. flavor is big, hoppy, smooth, and a slightly sweet, malty finish. Excellent brew.

oOJUXEOo (303) - Huntingdon Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 29, 2009
On tap at Tonys Place in Ivyland. Color is a deep rich red / brown. Head is not strong. Smells of hops hit your nose. Maybe Crystal hops? I would say this beer is more hop heavy than malt. Alcohol is well hidden under hop kick.
