COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Introducing Cold Hop British-style ale, a unique ale with a rich golden hue, and the 7th release in our Looking Glass Series of specialty beers. Cold Hop's pleasantly fruity, floral hop aroma and earthy flavor perfectly balance the mild sweetness of the English grains, resulting in a refreshing yet high-gravity British-Style ale.

Hazy orange-amber body with a thin white head that quickly goes away. Sweet floral, citrus, and pine aroma - very nice. Smooth and light on the palate with moderate-high carbonation. The flavor one ups the aroma. Remarkably delicious brew with the sweetness of caramel, raw honey, and sugared grapefruit fading to just a slightly bitter pine, earthy hops finish. A downright great beer.

On tap at Cobblestone Grill. A gorgeous creamy gold pour. Aroma is pretty neutral. Creamy in the mouth with low carbonation. Not very heavy hoppy bite, as it is muted by a light breadiness on the finish. As it warms, it finishes a little more sour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
