COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ass Kisser Ale is a state of mind! Just as you contemplate the flavors of this fine ale you can contemplate sharing a bottle with a friend or your boss. Maybe they are one in the same. And then again maybe not! We are just sayin!

Ass Kisser Double IPA is a rich malty ale that has warm carmel notes that open up as it warms up to your glass. It pairs with foods with spice and aromas like Asian 5 Spice or curries. To get maximum aroma and flavor, pour this ale into a snifter style glass. This ale is made to take off the edge of a long day! Made from caring hands that understand what it takes to have to kiss a little to get anywhere these days.

Enjoy!

Formerly at 9.2% when brewed at Rahr.

This was a delightful beer with a lot of floral aroma. Nice bitter hoppy flavor. My wife is pregnant and on bed rest so I have not enjoyed a great microbrew in awhile.

Bottle from Swords at the VM. Great beer, dominated by malts and yeast. Aromas of caramel and bread, with hints of citrus. Taste is sweet, with light bitter notes, and long length. Palate is creamy, and full bodied. Orange, with a frothy head.

Maltier than most double IPAs I’ve had. Hazy coloration, brownish, but spicy and hopped to hell. Nice. Tried in Lawrence, 3/13/2011 with a group of friends in the little yellow house on W 23rd.

The real reason I come back to this beer is because of an intangible craving for the hop varieties used. Damn I love that. Doing research on what hops they use here. Unusual and damn tasty!

jtclockwork (7107) - , New Jersey, USA - OCT 8, 2010
Bottle shared at a tasting. A very hard beer to rate. Less hoppy than most Double IPAs, but extremely tasty. Pours clear amber with off white head. Nose of malts, malts, and more malts with pineapple, citrus, maple and nuts. Taste is nutty and malty, with hops, citrus, maple and caramel.

Onslow (1095) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JUN 26, 2011
Pour from a 22 oz bottle. Cloudy medium amber brew iwth ample and persistent head. Nice aroma of bready malts, caramel, and piney hops. Taste is nicely balnaced between lightly sweet caramel hops at the start transitioning to a well hopped finish. Citrus, pine, and generally bitter hops in the finish merge nicely with the general maltiness. Full bodied with a satisfying palatte. This is quite good.

Pours a cloudy copper with a robust off-white head and lots of lacing. Nose of pine and floral hops. Medium to heavy body and a very resin mouthfeel. Downright sticky. Flavor is full of bitter hops, and some fruit. Dry bitter finish. Really good
