Strykzone (4497) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - FEB 22, 2014
Pint at Global Brew that was $12.75 and was listed as 6% ABV. This arrived opaque dark brown and had a nice head. An aroma of dark fruit and sweeter malts. The aroma was not big but did have some nice subtlety. That dark fruit in the flavor, too. It was sweet, powdery, complex and malty. That dark fruit has a lot going on in it and it made this a fun beer to try. Some chocolate came late. Somewhere in there some hop bitterness and some spiciness showed up. Good stuff.

Lupulucid (185) - - FEB 1, 2014
Arctic Circle Ale is somewhat akin to an alpine liqueur with a dose of hops. The juniper expression is not crisp as in gin but more balanced with the malt such that the bitterness and vegetal character is more evident than any piney character. Carbonation is restrained.
