COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Editor’s Note: This entry is for capped 750mL bottles brewed at Jolly Pumpkin. If you had a corked and caged silk screen bottle from Anchorage, please rate under the Anchorage listing.

He who fights with monsters should look to it that he himself does not become a monster. And when you gaze long into an abyss the abyss also gazes into you. -Nietzche

When introspection fails, it’s time to look outward for inspiration, perhaps Northward! One of the people who inspired me this past year is my friend Gabe Fletcher, of Anchorage Brewing Co. We brewed this beer together. I hope it inspires you. Northward!

Warm regards,

Petkus331 (368) - Redford, Michigan, USA - AUG 4, 2015
Aroma of sour apple and oak. Appears slightly hazy clear gold with big white foam and light lace. Very mild malt character, mellow bitter tannic oak stands out, with mellow but deep sour, lingering mellow tannins, very very nice. Fizzy light palate. Overall, a great beer, only jolly pumpkin seems to get this mellow lingering tannic bitterness, so very nice.
