This was the first time The Brew Bros col­lab­o­rated with a local brew­ery to make a beer of any kind. We choose an ESB hop­ing for a bal­anced ses­sion­able beer, but we also decided to push the IBU’s to the style limit. Sit­ting at 40, we were hop­ing the higher IBU would help attract some of the “Hop Heads” of Arizona. The beer turned out won­der­ful. The honey malt used in the beer pro­vided an excel­lent hint of sweet­ness, with the hops tak­ing a bit more of cen­ter stage. There was also a slight dry­ness in the fin­ish cre­at­ing an aspect of mor­ish­ness that enticed peo­ple to have more. Over­all, it was exactly what we hoped for.

Poured up at Sleepy Dog (listed only as ESB) with a copper looking body that supports a dirty white head of foam. The aroma offers up malts, a dash of roasted malts and not much else. The taste is smooth malt sweetness, roasted malts and biscuit malts. It quickly climbs into pretty firm hop flavor and bitterness with a mix of floral and tree shrub like grassy resiny hops. It builds into a nice degree of hop bitterness that’s restrained by the malt bill. Nice hoppy ESB with a smooth malt profile.

Tap @ Sleepy Dog. Pours a clear, dark golden appearance with an off white head. Somewhat spicy, grassy, earthy, light buttery aroma. Slight veggie, chewy malty, light cracker, a touch fruity flavor. Pass.

On draft at World of Beer. This collaboration beer between Sleepy Dog and The Brew Bros is a nice amber copper color with a earthy and noble hops. It has a nutty character and pretty well balanced. A good ESB.
