COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

Medium off-white head, with lots of particles distributed throughout the orange body. Nice lacing rings left as the beer is consumed. Aroma is both grapefruit and floral hoppy. Flavor is pleasant piney hops, some grapefruit, and rounded off well by decent malts. Fairly dry finish. Bitterness lingers nicely.
