In the seemingly endless cruelty, battle, and strife of the Hyborian age, a warrior has but two pleasures: Decimating one’s enemies in battle, and a horn of Cimmerian Sabertooth Berzerker to slake the thirst of victory.

Serving: 22 oz. bomber dated 7/25/14, poured into a Founder's pint glass.

A: Pour a very cloudy and hazy orange color. Faint 1/4 finger white head.

S: Pineapple, mango, tangerine, clementine.

T: Same as it smells, with pineapple and tangerine flavors dominating. Actually rather sweet for a DIPA. Has an almost "juicy" and "fruity" quality and flavor to it.

M: Nice and full. Alcohol hidden very well. Faint bitterness on the finish, not overwhelming at all.

O: So I was surprised to see this listed as a DIPA on BA. Bottle says "cimmerian pale ale". As I started to drink it, it tasted more like a big IPA. But DIPA certainly fits it nonetheless. This is a good beer. For 3F DIPAs, my standard is Permanent Funeral, and this is nowhere near that level. This one's a bit too juicy-sweet for me. Tropical fruit flavors are very dominating. Still a great effort from 3F though.

Recommendation: Any fan of 3F or very citrusy DIPAs should grab this if able.

A hazy orange color. Great on the nose, nice hop aroma. A really nice pale with a bit of a tangy / spicy taste. Had it on tap at the brewery and from a bomber. Tap was better but was really good both times.

This pours a hazy dry tangerine color with a thick meniscus of beige tan head, giving off a full dried green citrus hops aroma. More complexity grows in the nose,with some tangerine and dry spicy hops character. The finish has some woody green hops that are almost brassy in character. The dry spicy dark green hops taste is full of pithy flavor but soft on the pungency. The finish has a cat pee hops flavor that grows in the finish but never dominates. The hops have a slight metallic taste but it is not offensive as it opens. The mouthfeel has a spicy little fizz that leads to a creamy texture in the finish.

Big delicious hop flavor but lots of nice depth and unique character really makes this beer easy to drink for such a big beast. Not much bitterness to slow it down.
