Worst beer I've ever had. It tasted like tree sap! The smell and after taste wants you quit drinking. Who in the world would spend money on this. Yes the name says it all.... you have to be a warrior to finish drinking it! Barf barf barf barf puke puke puke.

The appearance is a rich cloudy golden color with a rich and thick slow settling off-white head that leaves a good lacing down the glass.

The nose is a nice sweet malt bed which the hops rise from with hints of pine, white pepper, cut grass and lemon zest.

The flavor is superb. The malt is dry yet pleasant and works well with the tangy hops. the Hops are bitter and well balanced with the malt that is tad dry for my taste but not too dry. Subtle notes of bread, pine, pepper and a tinge of fructose on the finish that gives way to a nice bitter aftertaste that lingers but doesn't stick around like an uninvited guest.

The mouthfeel is just right for this one. Slightly rich but not too much so. This allow the finish the to linger without staying to long.

Overall a very drinkable PA and a great example of an American classic. I highly recommend it.

I've never stuffed a handful of pine needles into my face before, but I imagine this beer would taste similar. Sticky after taste. Not terrible, but certainly not my favorite. I need a glass of iced tea after every 2nd sip. I got this beer in a Karbach collection because they brew in TX, and sadly I have 2 of these left.
