COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An American updating of an India Pale Ale. This pale copper beverage features Pacific Northwest grown hops and malted barley. The first thing noticed is the amazing aroma from the double dry hopping, post fermentation. The initial taste conveys a combination of the sweetness of the malt and bitterness of the early addition hops. The later addition hops then come into play with citrus and pine flavors and then the aroma finishes it all off as you move the glass back to the table.

Poured from growler that was filled at the brewery roughly 24 hours ago and kept chilled during it's 1,000+ mile car ride thanks to an awesome buddy. Pours a beautiful clear golden orange with a frothy off white head slow to dissipate. Smooth up front, good balance, bites in the end with a little bit of a rough finish. I like it. Slight aftertaste though. Glad I got the chance to try it. It appears to also be named SOB. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Howler purchased from Liquor Shed. A- it pours a slightly hazy gold with a 1 finger head of foam and some nice lacing. S- big notes of pine and grapefruit with an underling aroma of caramel malt. T- very hoppy taste here. Big on the pine, big on the grapefruit, hints of tropical fruit, and then the malt moves in with some caramel sweetness. Not quite balanced but man, it’s a very good and enjoyable drop. M- medium bodied with on a fairly light side with the carbonation. Nice smooth mouthfeel. O- I really like this and I think it would satisfy most fans of American IPAs. Excuse me whilst I pour the second half of the Howler into my glass.
