COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Holiday IPA, bittered with gentle noble hops and mercilessly dry hopped with pungent American varietals. Juicy Belgian malts and candi sugar complete this celebratory beer.

Meh, on tap at Armsby Abbey this is a decent beer but not getting the beligan profile that i would expect, moderate flavors and lots of sweetness which fights against the hops.

12oz pour at Of Love & Regret. Pours a clear orange with some creamy white head. Nose is nice, not a standard take on an IPA, pungent citrus, some pine, but also some cinnamon. Flavor is interesting, orange peel, lemony hop, cinnamon, raisin, candy sugar. Lightly bitter finish. Very interesting.

Pours a rich amber color with a finger of eggshell foam. The nose has a lot of fruity esters, definite candi sugar and some piney earthy booze as well. The palate reads more like a Belgian strong than an IPA and Im good with that. The integration of fruity yeast esters and hop presence works nicely and there is a round sweet backbone that balances out the booze pretty nicely as well. Good bitterness cleans the sweetness up on the finish...
