This year’s Fa continues with bags full of Matt’s favorite hop, Centennials, to warm your heart and soul. It’s like a sweater for your insides! Brewed with Gambrinus Pilsner malt and a dash of crystal malts, this brew has a voluptuous malt bill to harmonize with the wealth of hops. ‘Tis the season to be jolly!

From tavour. Poured from the bottle. Nice clear orange color. Decent head. Aroma is hoppy. This is much different from most winter ale. Flavor is great.

Bottle. Colour...medium amber with at thick white head. Nose...what the?! Is this supposed to smell like a cross between urine infused diapers and an old school hair salon??! Palate...reluctantly I bring the goblet to my mouth and.... luckily it’s not like diapers and hair salon! Whew! But it’s not great either. There’s dank, musty, odd hops and a bitter persimmon thing going on. The mid palate is oddly tangy as is the finish, which is sadly long. I’m not sure what happened with this ale, but something seems amiss here. A bummer as I tend to enjoy Double Mountain beers.

Pours out beautifully, burnt orange and huge fluffy head. Aroma hints at the spiciness that follows in the taste. Not overwhelming, but complementary to the malt and hop profiles. Lingering savory flavors, slick and creamy body.

Draft pour at Frankies pizza. Pours a cloudy caramel color with a thin foam head. Slightly spicy aroma. Sweet caramel malt flavor with a slightly litter finish. This beer is alright, nothing that particularly stood out.

This poured a red to amber with a white head. Aroma was of citrusy and grassy hops, seemed a little stale though, and caramel malt. Flavor was similar, bitter and sweet, only a month old but hops seem to have dropped off a lot given the deScription.

Fatehunter (1828) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - DEC 21, 2014
Pours a half finger of head on a cloudy darker straw body. The aroma is grainy. The taste is malty yet hoppy. Great balance. Caramel, pine and grapefruit flavors. The texture is crisp with soft edges. Quite enjoyable.

emacgee (4457) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - DEC 19, 2014
Hazy copper amber pour with two fingers of creamy sandy tan head. Malty aroma with a kiss of spicy and earthy hops. Some crystal malt notes come through with a lightly grassy character. Flavor is kind of muddled, definitely get the citrus rind and woody note from the Centennial. Pretty heavy bitterness on the finish and lasting for sure. Not a big fan. Seems unbalanced (hate using that term) and muddled/confused in the flavor. Doesn’t know whether or not to be some IPA or strong ale and gets trapped in a bitter limbo.

This beer is cloudy and brownish copper. It has a Carmel aroma and smokey rich flavor. The malt comes through strong.
