COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A slightly more malt-forward version of the Thunderbeast, this beer still packs a ton of citrus and tropical fruits into the nose, but has a lightly sweet, malty backbone that provides a very balanced drinking experience. Brewed with Falconer’s Flight hops, a portion of the sales of these hops go to the Glen Falconer Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to furthering the craft beer community by providing educational scholarships to brewers.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours reddish brown with a modest off-white head and a toasty aroma. There is a fruity smoked malt flavor with balancing hop bitterness. Fun to drink.
