Named for the ski lodge atop our local White Pass Ski Resort, High Camp Winter Warmer takes Bale Breaker’s signature hop-forward style to a slightly darker side. Perfect for the season, this winter beer hits first with a malty backbone of spice and chocolate. Dry-hopped with Cascade, Centennial, and Mosaic, the hop character in High Camp bursts with pine and grapefruit. And at 8.2% ABV, this fireside sipper is sure to warm from the inside out.

Sampled at Schlafly’s Repeal of Prohibition festival 2014 - Pours brown with a small beige head. The aroma has mushy maltiness, nuttiness and not much in the hop department. It has a medium body with semi-soft carbonation. The flavor starts with mushy toasty malt, cardboard and caramel. The finish is very astringent. The idea of a "winter warmer" at a festival in April was a red flag I guess. I think Strykzone and I must have had samples out of two different kegs.

Strykzone (4931) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 12, 2014
Sampled at Repeal. Dark brown and opaque. A smallish beige head. An earthy and malty aroma that belies the hops that are tasted. They dominate. Citrus and bitter. Malta are significant, too. The hops grow and to the finish are almost all that is tasted. No complaints here.

poisoneddwarf (1711) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - JAN 2, 2014
On tap at Paddy’s in CDA, ID. Aroma is caramelly, toasted marshmallow, piney hops. Pours muddy brown with a long-sustaining beige head with excellent retention; leaves lace that sheets the glass. Taste is mostly hoppy bitter but there’s some caramel malt in the background. Tastes much more bitter than 70 IBU. This is a good, hoppy strong ale.
