COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In a surprising turn of events, rival superpowers have joined forces to bring a beer of might to the world. According to top-secret documents, recently unclassified, brewmasters for 21st Amendment in California and Ninkasi in Oregon began their brewing careers together many years ago. Leaders from the two breweries reunited recently at a secret camp in the Sierras to devise their master plan. “We are more alike than we are different,” said 21st Amendment’s Shaun O’Sullivan. “We must unite in our common cause,” added Ninkasi’s Jamie Floyd. The resulting collaboration, an ale brewed with California dates, an aggressive arsenal of all-Northwest hops and an unmistakable aroma of victory, deals a unified blow to unoriginal beers around the world. Tasting Notes: This Strong Ale has caramel, toffee, plum, fig and date in a wallop rich malt flavor with a robust hop flavor and balancing this full flavored treat. Citrus, pine, and earthy describe the hop nose that comes from a huge dry hop of the Falconer’s Flight Hop Blend. The beer is also aged on Real California Dates imparting even more natural fruit flavor and deepening the Mahogany hue of this delicious collaboration.

Seems one of the words I use for an aroma or flavor when I can’t describe it exactly is ‘fruity,’ implying a sweetness but also that I can’t pin it down to a specific fruit. also raw sugar, lumber first flavor hit is brown sugar, a mix of lemony & resin hops, alcohol, when you lick a dry rock. tongue feels tingly then goes dry. clear amber with modest off white head
