COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our most versatile beer. Good to drink as well as cook with. Light enough to quench a thirst and complex enough to accompany fine dining. Carmel malty sweet fades to a chocolate roasty finish and dry from a touch of rye. 1.057 OG 13 IBU 6%ABV

BOLTZ7555 (2967) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 28, 2015
Ruby, crimson, and garnet with a tightly packed eggshell cap. Such a solid and balanced brew with loads of caramel, toffee, raisin, cocoa, pine, spicy rye, and bright citrus. Could drink a ton of this and not usually a fan of the style. Alpine does it again!
