CLIMAX CREAM ALE

Amiable creamy-headed straw-hazed sparkling ale combines dark Belgian malts with sinewy yeast funk, bitter citrus spicing, and tea-like splendor for casually perplexed moderate body. As hoppy as an IPA (with wispy yellow grapefruit, green apple, and orange fruiting), but softly crisp-watered and lightly grained, allowing pilsner fans a chance to catch their breath.

CISCO 10 ALE

Deeply penetrating prune theme (flavor-hue-aroma) gains congruent fig-raisin insistence to celebrate island-bound brewers’ ten-year anniversary (blending Baggywringle Barleywine with Whale’s Tale Pale Ale inside strawberry-strewn bourbon barrel). Vinous strawberry tartness lingers through oaken cherry pucker and mild bourbon warmth. Tertiary grape esters and bruised orange souring add further complexity, though mossy earthiness and dank basement finish seem peculiar.
