COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Serum is our version of a Double(Imperial) India Pale Ale. It is aggressively hopped at several stages of the brewing process including a dry hopping that takes place little by little over a 2 week period. With an OG close to 19Plato, this beer is big and hoppy, yet has a strong malt backbone that keeps the huge hop bitterness from being overbearing. Available in VERY limited quantities and only at our pub locations.

coldbrewky (1478) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - SEP 24, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2012 Bomber via Sloth in trade. Light nose of piney hops and bright cereal malts. first taste is sweet and then quickly enveloped by hops that continue to exude thru the sweet malt in an even, orderly, yet determined fashion. Pours a deeper copper with a thin off white head. Another enjoyable brew from an old regular watering hole. Loooong spicy hop finish. Draft this past month at Bel Air facility. Up 1 in appearance, and overall.

swoopjones (6558) - Buffalo, New York, USA - SEP 20, 2010
draft @ BWI airport. golden orange pour, it says this is a winter seasonal (09-10??) if so this may explain the light aroma. Much lighter than that of the APA. Sweet sticky hop flavor, almost too sweet. notes of berry. Flavorful & bitter but too sweet
