Forget CNN. We can tell you what’s happening in the world. Some shit’s blowing up. Some is hitting the fan. Here’s your fleeting escape.
Death by Viking, our imperial IPA, bursts with pine resin and grapefruit hop aroma that gives way to a clean, tongue-smacking bitterness and a warming finish like those post-pillage bonfires pre-Battle of Stamford Bridge. There's enough malt character left after fermentation for a hint of caramel and cracker, but not enough to call this beer balanced. The fermentation profile is moderately fruity, accentuating and complementing the intense hop-derived qualities of this beer.
Pain Cave is a double IPA with a bodacious citrus and pine-sap hop aroma, minimal malt character, intense lingering bitterness, and light-t0-medium body--there's nothing balanced about it. Kavorka is a Russian imperial stout with the aroma of Ghirardelli Square and a coffee roastery being swept up in the Boston Molasses Disaster, a subdued bitterness, and a rich, full body with a lasting baker's chocolate finish. A good amount is already stocked away in bourbon barrels.
Axe Scar Pig. is our American red ale, ruby in color with a tight off-white head, packed with caramel and toasted malt character, and bursting with the choicest earthy and melonesque American-variety hops. Like a battle hog built for endurance, Axe is medium-bodied and supremely drinkable. Interrobang‽ is our true-to-style Belgian-style tripel, straw colored and brilliant, a delicate balance between bready pils-malt sweetness, spicy Continental hop aroma, and bubblegum-fruity Belgian yeast character, all forming an invisibility cloak around the beer's potent 9.0% ABV.
The majority of beers we brew can be classified under four categories:
It's a relevant question for your beer drinking this week as we bring back Skinny Jeans R Ridiculous, our single-hopped American pale ale, and release for the first time H4LF2UAD, our Belgian-style dubbel. These beers are strikingly different--Skinny Jeans is a hop-forward, light-bodied, easy-drinking beer that showcases the floral, citrusy character of Cascade hops, while H4LF2UAD is a malt-forward, full-bodied sipper that highlights the dark-fruity-goodness that emerges from the combination of dark specialty malts and Belgian yeast. Grab a sample of each at the taproom and feel your tongue do somersaults trying to figure out what the hell is going on.
