Strong Ale (8.7% ABV)... Whine-like in "honor" of its namesake... Orange hued like the team that sent him home for the summer... The perfect complement to a playoff run.

Draft at Nodding Head. Dark ruby brown with runny lace. Sweet malty flavors but finishes dry. Good carbonation. Caramel pine. Raisins. Nice hop bite to bring some balance.

Both sweet and hoppy, like some barleywines. A handsome pour (on tap at NH) with orange and yellow hilites. A fine, perfumey floral hop aroma. I tasted some lime, brown sugar, brine, and yeasty bitterness, It is earthy and nutty, but the flavors clash a bit. Named in honor of whiney hockey star Sidney Crosby (not singer David Crosby as I originally thought).

Deep coppery color with a thin tannish head. Very crisp with a nice flavor of raisins and other dried fruit. Not extremely malty. A bit of hoppiness, but not overly bitter. Surprisingly light and drinkable considering the alcohol content.
