COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our brewers have paired choice hops with a unique blend of specialty malts to produce a rich and hoppy American style E.S.B ale that goes down smooth after a long day on the water.

Bottle at home. Drove from Montana to Baltimore with beer not in cooler, so maybe not the best showing. Starts sweet-the sweetness thatís hard to avoid in high alcohol beers-with a healthy dose of bitter at the finish. Nice amber color, not super deep or complex in flavor but a nice IPA.

Iphonephan (3303) - McLean, Virginia, USA - JUN 26, 2013
On draft at Montana Aleworks in Bozeman. Pours a hazy dark gold with a fine white head. Fruity hop nose. Flavors of grapefruit and melon. Bitter finish.

luttonm (2223) - Belgrade, SERBIA - SEP 5, 2012
Draft at brewpub in Belgrade, MT. Deep orange, stringy foam head. Funky, drying sweat nose. Big funky citrus hops. A larger DIPA, first Iíve found on trip. A bit ovv-sour before fruity bitter finish. Nice effort but not great.

TheHOFF43 (1752) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - SEP 2, 2012
Bottle from Munsemj. Pours a nice hazy golden with thin white, fluffy head. Great hop aroma and good taste. Very smooth for being 9% abv. A nice DIPA for sure.

Braudog (5752) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - JUL 8, 2012
Draft at the brewery. Medium to dark orange. Thin but sticky head. This drinks with a bitter and earthy character, the bitterness really stark in the finish. Pretty easy to drink for 9% but not living up to their "rich grapefruit" promise. (#4654, 7/5/2012)

jake65 (2635) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 26, 2012
Bottle: Pale copper pour with a thin beige head. Lots of sticky lacing. Floral and citrus aroma is rather potent. Flavor profile is full of citrus, lighter in the florals, and strong in the caramel malts. Really has a solid malty backbone. Lingering hops. Good.

DuffMan (6798) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 16, 2012
Bottle. Hazy orange amber with a lasting lightly golden creamy head. Aroma is nice: light pine and tangerine peel. Bitter citrus hops and lightly toasty malts play nicely on the palate. Long bitter finish. Smooth, almost creamy mouthfeel. Iíve had a few beers from these guys, and this is the first one that rises above mediocre. I like the light toastiness.

TheRealMGD (551) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - JUN 9, 2011
Tap @ Montana Ale Works. Hazy orange pour with a short off-white head leaving minimal lace. Light pine nose. Medium body with a lovely fine, creamy carbonation. Toasted pumpernickel, spruce and grapefruit, and heaps of umami and bitterness in the finish.

BuckeyeBoy (2752) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 28, 2011
12oz Bottle Thanks to Toby. Pours out a crisp clear copper topped with a long lasting sand head. Aroma is sweet caramel malts, hop juice, and a little grain. Taste is more of the sweetness and a little bitter grapefruit peal on the end.
