Dedicated to Crustaceans
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 - just drink it and enjoy.

This beer just looks like it's up right my alley,pours into an imperial nonic a hazed apricot color with frothy half finger white head atop that lasts for quite awhile.Big juicy fruity esters in the nose,they really jump out at ya,after it sits some sweet alcohol is detected.Big alcohol and caramel/toffee sweetness along with fruity hops,not much hoppy bitterness but it does come into play a little in the finish.This is the type of beer that really makes me happy Iam into craft beer,yeah Rogue has made some clunkers recently and the name changing stuff is annoying but this beer renews my faith in this old school craft brewer.Great stuff...in my opinion.
