COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewing the perfect ale is truly a balancing act ... Hazardous work you might say. With Hop Hazard our challenge was to hand craft a malt rich base that could counterbalance a combustible five-hop blend and still leave your taste buds with enough room to enjoy a unique, dry-hopped finish.

Bottled. Pours a hazy copper (it’s unfiltered) with a big pillowy creamy white head. Aroma is excellent balance of hops and malts. Caramel, some burnt sugar. Flavor is also an awesome blaance. Burnt sugar sweetness on the front, with a hoppy finish. Very nice pale ale, despite its name, it is not overly hoppy. And it’s fresh tasting, which I like.
