tasting notes

A maltier version of our Double IPA, berry notes reminiscent of an empty jar of strawberry jam lead with candied grapefruit peel following. Raisin, dark bread crust and pie crust malt flavors all pass by yet never become rich as the beer finishes dry in conjunction with a gentle bitterness.
