Our “twice a year” beer, this special extra pale ale is brewed with ridiculous amounts of hops and a huge malty body that will leave you craving more when its gone.

Bottle/22oz - A 2010 Christmas present from Sean Lawson himself. - May have "gone by" as there are "Brett-type" aromas here. Pours a quite clear darkish amber in color with a medium, very dense off-white head that just would not fade... 5 minutes, 1.5" tall, still at the top of the glass... now that is what I call a HEAD! Aroma is a bit sour and funky with a bit of hops. Flavor is also a bit funky/barnyard with a hefty amount of hop bitter. I wish that I would have had this when it was fresher... I still appreciate the gift!

Huge thanks to Sean for dropping some of this off for me at Lawson’s last weekend. Poured into a generic tulip glass at a tasting with bmanning, Amyliz4, and Heather. The color is a ruby with just a tad bit of lace off of a two-finger head. The nose brings some sweet cherry malt and a bit of pine and citrus hops. The taste is, like the nose, a good dose of sweet malt with some mild dark fruits and a hint of cherry. The hops are fairly light and there is a bit of booze. Medium body with a bit of booze. Overall, this definitely fits within the Strong Ale category. There is a nice hop presence and a bit of earth, though the malt is bit more toward the front.
