Poured from a 22 oz. bottle marked Batch #6 into an unbranded short-stemmed tulip/snifter
Pours a deep, clear amber with golden highlights capped by a cream colored fluffy two finger head. Above average retention and some splotchy lacing. Pineapple, tropical notes, caramel maltiness, and whiffs of clean alcohol on the nose. Pineapple, zesty mandarin orange, big caramel malt midpalate. Caramel carries through the finish and is joined by warming alchohol and intensely bitter citrus rind; really intensely bitter citrus rind, which leaves a very strong aftertaste. Huge full body due to the large malt backbone which puts this beer on par with most American barleywines. Moderate, gentle carbonation, soapy and smooth on the palate. This brew is truly a palate wrecker. The strong bitterness of the finish really pushes my limit and trends just a bit too intense at times.

This beer is true to the name! Bitter but wonderful! A awesome hop aroma from the Columbus and a great caramel end taste to help balance it all out! It's strong but great. I was fortunate to have this brewery a few ocks from me and had this the day after it was canned! Extremely fresh!!! I must admit thought! The full flavor came out in my opinion about a week or so later! Overall great beer for hop heads and bitter bikers alike. Cheers!!
