Here is the full-bodied seasonal ale that brings meaning to Winter Warmer. With a snappy hop character, this isn’t just another brown beer masquerading as a seasonal. This is hearty fare brewed for the season of celebrations. Enjoyed at ease with friends and food, Winterfish will put a glow in the cheeks and warmth in the veins. Pale and honey malts provide an abundantly deep foundation. Then, for bittering, flavor, and aroma, we use 100% Yakima Chinook hops in the kettle. For additional flavor and aroma, it’s more Yakima Chinooks in the hop-back. Perfect for festive feast, this is the hoppiest winter ale we know of! Savor a pint and you’ll know why Northwesterners agree: An ice cold Winter never sounded better!

brokensail (14042) - San Leandro, California, USA - DEC 12, 2010
A: The pour is a slightly hazy golden orange color with a small scattering if white bubbles. Not really any head formation here. S: The nose is candied orange peel, sweet citrus hops, and tropical fruit to start. There’s a definite spiciness, seems to be ginger, along with some bread. T: Sweet orange peel and citrus with some miscellaneous fruit notes. It’s slightly bitter with a warming alcohol on the finish. A decent enough breadiness, but not really hearty. M: The body is medium and the carbonation is low to moderate. D: People seem to keep saying good things about this brewery, but I haven’t had good luck with them thus far. This was sort of a weird, spiced, strong pale ale more than anything.

I have not had this in years, but i remember it to be quite earthy and spicy, maybe with notes of juniper.

bhensonb (12960) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 7, 2006
Aroma of ripe citrus and a hint of malt. Amber color with a lite white head. Starts with lite grapefruit, followed by a hint of sweetness (lots of hints in this), substantial mouthfeel, ending in smooth bitterness. Grapefruit takes a back seat. Still hoppy though. Contrast SN Celebration which is a bit rough. Very drinkable.
