A: Straight forward nice Amber. Very full foam head that tan in color. Long retention and heavy lacing.
S: Malt and fruity hops, faint pine. Mildly appealing, but not compelling.
T: Malt breadiness followed by hop bite. The citrus is a unsweeten grapefruit. Medium high mouthfeel, and medium low carbonation.
O: Very ordinary. Nothing is off balanced but just not enough depth and complexity going on here. I would drink if offered, but I'm not sure I would seek out. Price is really good, that counts for something. This is a very new brewery, they've got some time to dial it in.
Eagle Claw Fist utilizes the same Chico yeast that shaped Hoppy Feet and Brown Angel. Canadian Two Row, English Crystal, and a little English Black Patent malt provide a sweet, balanced backbone. Simcoe, Centennial, and Citra work together to create a unique hop assault, with an intense bitterness that manages to leave your palate in one piece and is harmonized by the flavors of tropical fruits and flowers. The finish is dry.
