Both English and American base malts give this beer a hefty 8% alcohol, while British brown malt and Chilean caramel malt lend it color and sweetness. Five different hops give this beer a complex but approachable hop profile to balance out the malty sweetness. Apollo is used for bittering, while Tettnangers and Cascades round out the middle and a blend of three comprise the hop back.

"This tasty ale is a little wheat-wine-ish in its presentation. Sweetish, candied grapefruit and some fairly robust roasted malts combine to make a pretty nice hefty but drinkable ale. I’d go back for this too."

Amber in color with a thin head. Nice malt flavor with a deep rich sweetness. This was a big strong beer. Lots of malt and hops balance and goodness.
