COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Don’t be fooled by the label depicting a Grim Reaper Santa Claus in a sleigh pulled by skeletal reindeer - this is not a Christmas Ale. "Sleighor" is an Imperial India Pale Ale. The intense hop bitterness, flavor and aroma will dominate at first. To complement, the body has a complex blend of malt and alcohol flavors. The ABV is 9.1%, and the IBU’s are pushing the mid 80s. The entire family of Cascade hops is used. Cascade, Centennial and Columbus are spread throughout the boil, and a huge sack of Amarillo for dry hopping. The hop combination gives this brew a distinct profile true to its IPA roots. The presentation is clear copper with a thick tan head, coupled with billowing citrus and floral hop aroma. "Do You Dare" to enjoy this fine ale from the Reaper? Brewed at Sudwerk for ReaperAle.

fiulijn (14294) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 18, 2009
Hazy amber color; creamy head. It has a resiny hop aroma, not too strong, actually much less than most IPAs. The caramel and toffee flavor is quite chewy, it has surly a strong bitterness, quite resiny, but also a bit dusty. It’s powerful, but there is nothing impressive here, the hop doesn’t give the necessary quality.
