COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
During the summer, YuleSmith is transformed into a big, hoppy, Double IPA. The enormous load of hops requires a substantial malt background to create just the right balance for a Double IPA. Lighter in color, summer YuleSmith is available around the 4th of July and is packaged in a red, white, and blue bottle. For the winter season, YuleSmith is brewed as an Imperial Red Ale. This version is maltier, more balanced, and darker in color than the summer version. Although quite malty, big hop flavors and aromas are abundant making this an unforgettable winter warmer. Winter YuleSmith is packaged in traditional holiday red and green.
Original Gravity 1.085, Alcohol by volume 9.5%

Ends dry, bittered and slight spiced. Good balance between body and bitterness into the finish. Lasting mild citric fruity note.

8.5%ABV
Wonderful dark amber color, hazy, with red and mahogany reflex; medium head. It has a very nice aroma, sweet caramel, powerful hops, fruity (tangerine, oranges, plums…), resiny and some vanilla. The mouthfeel is very bold, nevertheless smooth; it has a strong flavor of dark caramel, rhubarb candies, medium sweetness, full hopping, dynamic, with moderate resins and bitter orange peels; long and balanced final, yet strong and chewy. Very powerful, but also very well brewed. Excellent.
