COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For this special release, we wanted to brew a flavorful winter IPA that captured the aroma of the season. This brought us to juniper berries, which add a slightly sweet, piney character. Complemented by citrus notes from American hops, this balanced IPA will brighten the holidays. Cheers!

Nice amber color with light head. Did not find any hint of juniper but the taste was crisp. Not a heavy IPA but light and rather enjoyable flavor.

It did not have much of an Aroma. It has a pleasant amber hue. I did not find a "berry" taste to this beer. It has mild grapefruit flavor which is not sweet or bitter just in the middle. It does have a very strong pinenut taste. It has a bitter finishes which lasts. This was one of my least favorites in the pack.

Bottle. Smells a little malty, pours orange with no head but a little lace. Taste follows the smell mostly, with something I can’t place (the juniper, maybe?). Bitter aftertaste hangs around longer than I’d like. Not bad though.

Bottle: Pours light copper-amber with a short, whipped head. Caramel malt, juniper aroma. Taste is mild pine hops, toasty bread. light caramel. Nothing exciting....but really well done and balanced....a great everyday IPA.

bottle. winter mix pack. clear orange with huge rocky head. orange citrus aroma maybe a hint of floral. kind of a citrusy, piney, juicy hop note with lightly sweet malt notes and a hint of honey. medium bodied. nice beer. not sure what to look for in juniper berries, but its not bad in any way.

Depsite the sub-par ratings, I found this IPA very enjoyable and delicious. The beer poured a light golden color with an adequate off-white head. The head left some nice cascading and sticky lacing around the edges of the glass. The nose was very spicy, dry and fruity. The flavors featured much of the same, with a pronounced fruitiness, along with some flowerly and dry hops. The finish was bready and earthy with more dryness and spicy hops.

Bottle. The body was a bit thin for my tastes, but there was some nice notes of citrus , pine, caramel malts and hop. Could use a bit more charecter.

Pours a golden color with a fluffy white head. Citrus, hop and pine aroma. Citrus, pine, grass, floral and slightly sour fruit flavors. Light body and a piney tart finish.
