COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed to drink long winter sessions of our favorite card game. Extensive dry hopping combined with a formidable malt bill creates the hoppiest beer in Redwood County!

12 oz. bottle that I picked up in Wisconsin on my way out to Yellowstone. Pours a clear amber with a think tan head that dissipates by the second sip and leaves little lace. Pleasant aroma of sweet malt and overripe orange. The flavir begins with sweet malt and is followed by a combination of overripe orange and bitter orange pith. Mild-moderate bitterness at the finish. Dries out just a bit towards the end as well. Medium bodied.

Nice dark orange pour with a white head. Aroma is catty hops and a bit of resin. Flavor is sharply bitter, but not unpleasant. Good malt bill. Resinous and pungent. Pretty decent, but I have no idea why this is 7.7%

Heathery herbal nose leading into a very tinny flavor. Palate is crisp but not intriguing. Hops are noticeable throughout, but hardly dominant.

Iím sure this beer is past its prime, but I have no mercy in rating if thereís no best-by date on the bottle. Wish more brewers would do this. Pours a dirty orange with no head and not much lacing. Aroma is caramel and sour yeast. Taste is a yeast bomb, then some funky malt, then a moderately bitter finish that dries out. From the other reviews, this was likely a bad batch or old bottle. Just noticed itís a winter seasonal, so itís probably at least 8-9 months old. Hops are a mere afterthought, making me think somethingís not right here... Iíll finish the bottle, but only because the other Brau Brothers bottle I just opened was spoiled as well and Iím not pouring two bottles down the drain in a single night. Get it together, people.

Bottle at yespr. Cloudy orange coloured with a small off-white head. Sweet and fruity aroma of hops, pine needles and basil. Sweet and fruity flavour of caramel, hops and pine needles. Dry hoppy finish.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 26, 2013
Bottled. A pale golden beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of straw and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of straw and malt, leading to a dry finish.

NielsenRatings (8275) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 27, 2013
Bottle @ home, courtesy of hasselHOFF. Thanks Kyle! Pours quite hazy reddish orange appearance with no head. Caramel, dark bread, somewhat citrusy, a bit spicy aroma. Goopy, sweet caramel malty, orange candy, boozy flavor. Honestly, makes me gag. Not good.

baumanj (9) - Northfield, Minnesota, USA - MAR 5, 2013 does not count
BITTER - too much so. Not very enjoyable on it's own - needs a formidable pairing to match this bitter hop-filled ale. Not any sweetness to speak of - tart with a bitter beginning and finish.

Bottle pour. Decent beer here that doesnít quite have as much hop profile as the marketing would have you believe.
