COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Down, down, down Maelstrom will go, pulling the hapless beer enthusiast in with a beguiling blend of blood orange, Northwest hops and sweet orange peel. Stray to close and you may not escape the currents of this tender trap. Blood orange provides tartness and the blush of a brazen sea, Citra and amarillo hops from the Yakima Valley offer bite and aroma, and orange peel suggests a little something else on the wind. Maelstrom is brewed with pale, Munich and Dextri-pils malts bittered with German Northern Brewer and finished and dry-hopped with Citra and Amarillo.

Tap @ Fifteenth Ave. Hophouse... Poured cloudy, pale orange with a thin head. Quite a bit of citrus here. Tasted of fermented Jolly Roger candies. Nice hop spice to balance. Somewhat drying, and full bodied. Good hoppiness with strong amount of orange citrus notes. A decent pair the two.
