An ‘aggressive beer’ indeed. Sticky molasses malts preside over up-front floral hop insistence, earthy grain thrust, and juicy tangerine stint for surefire opening salvo to brilliant rosy amber ale. Bittersweet dark chocolate overtones fade in and out, providing wonderful conduit ambushing lingering medicinal quilt. Fully formed red fruited finish shows off sundry character – each ingredient complementing the next with curious precision. For an added treat, 22-ounce bottles’ hilarious label brags about being ‘an honest microbrewery’ while deriding major corporate sludge. On tap, highly-hopped alcohol-laden malts convey full spectrum of pear-apricot-apple-cherry sweetness.
