Our 2nd Annual release of all things awesome is back and better than ever. This year’s interpretation is tilted toward the American side of the classic English Strong Ale. Still, rich and complex but with increased hop flavor and aroma displaying more citrus and pine than last year’s rendition.
This ale pours amber with an orange hue and dense, off-white head. Intense aromas of apricot, prune, and honey jump at the palate while subtle citrus and pine hop aromas work to balance the perceived sweetness. Strong, intense flavors of toasted white bread, toffee, and dried fruits are balanced by the medium-high hop bitterness. This beer is full bodied and chewy with a slight alcohol warmth on the finish. Drink with care! At 8.9% ABV, you can bet you won’t be makin’ any sudden moves anytime soon.
