A rich malt backbone combines with the intense hop flavors to deliver a balanced finish that will keep you coming back to say BEER ME!

Dogbrick (8149) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 21, 2012
Sample at Redlight Redlight. The beer is a hazy amber-gold color with a medium thin white head that dissipates steadily. Strings of lacing on the glass. Notes of malt and citrusy hops in the nose. Medium-bodied with a moderately bitter hops character and flavors of citrus and bready malt. The finish is piney hops with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Decent overall.
