COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The biggest religion in America is baseball, closely followed by religion. This cultural extravaganza can’t be properly appreciated in full without a refreshing brew such as the Double IPA, the heavy hitter of Yankee craft beers. Stolen Base is our version. A triple play of smooth malts, citrus notes, and supersize-me hops that leave it bitterer than a Hollywood divorce.

TheNucleator (21) - NEW ZEALAND - JAN 13, 2014
American malty notes on the nose but hop aroma not too discernible. Honey amber colour with light caramel head. Malty taste present with hops, alcohol taste present. Quite astringent with fairly acrid aftertaste near the end of the glass. Quite good mouth feel. Overall would rate well except for the peculiar bitterness at the end. Good value for money though.
