COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Prepare for your palate to be victimized by HAYWIRE, a Double American Black Ale brewed with 10-pounds of hops per barrel, and a special process using hopped wort as mash water. Centennial, Citra, Zythos, and Falconer’s Flight hops fill this beer with notes of citrus and sappy pine, while the malt brings hints of toffee, coffee and cocoa.

This is a stupendous beer! Dark color with thick foamy head with staying power. Plenty of hops balanced with the tasteful blend of coffee and cocoa. Absolutely delicious!

Pours a dark brown, nearly black color with a nice two finger dark tan head. Slight mahogany around the edges. The conditioning on this beer is excellent. Nice tight head. Even though this beer is over 5 months old, the nose on this is TREMENDOUS! Immediate bitter citrus notes that are overwhelmed by giant pine....so much pine, all the pine in the world. That pine gives way to a nice coffee, toffee almost chocolate sweet aroma. The taste up front is bitter citrus which again gives way to a massive middle of the mouth bitterness of pine which actually rather quickly rolls into coffee before the citrus comes back and finishes in a nice toffee chocolate sweetness. There is a nice sticky residue on the lips that is very stout reminiscent. The body on this is medium full and there is no, I repeat no trace of the 11.5% alcohol. Excellent.

Tap. Tulip at bulldog. Black with tan head. Sweet and some toffee smell. Bitter dark chocolate to go with maltiness. Finishes bitter and slightly sour. A lot going on.

On tap at Republic 7C, pours a dark brown/black with a large tan head. Aroma is heavy on the pine and citrus hops with a solid dark black backing. The hops really hit you up front on the this one bitter and resinous and subside in malts of coffee, and cocoa. Damn good!

Bottle @ home. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma is pine and roasted malt. Flavor is piney, hoppy and roasty malts. Better than last year, in my opinion.

Sampled on tap at Indeed. Pours a black color with white head. Grassy, piney, roasty aromas and flavors. Pretty fuckin solid.

Tap pour at Northbound that must be one from the first batches of the season. Very fresh in aroma, color, and taste. Light head on a dark black beautiful appearance. Powerful double black ale with a slight coffee flavor but remains very balanced. Aftertaste is great and definitely leaves you wanting more. A good local brewery and a great representation.
