COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ichigo Highway is a collaborative beer that we created with Hangar 24 Brewing from Redlands, CA. The base style is a sessionable sour red ale that we aged in oak barrels along with a whopping amount of strawberries, most of which were picked from the fields besides Hangar 24’s brewery. Aged for approximately 8 months, this beer has developed a pleasant funk and a delightful acidity that is balanced by the intensely sweet aroma and flavor of the strawberries as well as a unique dryness achieved by using a sake yeast along with our house strain along with souring bacteria. Available in November. 5.5% ABV, Best enjoyed fresh due to the fleeting aroma and flavor of the strawberries

Pours a reddish hue. Nice whiff of strawberry. Initial taste is sourness followed by a jam taste. Tastes really fresh. Good sparkle to it. Some farmhouse notes as well. Excellent mix of flavors.

Bottle from the brewery tasting room. Aroma is fresh strawberry sweet tarts. This is the first strawberry beer I have had that didn’t taste artificial. The berry flavor is super fresh. Super tart sour. I had a sample of this at the brewery and it was more mellow and complex.. The bottle is pretty raw. Like a strawberry Zots! No sweetness whatsoever.

Hophead22 (2880) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - NOV 10, 2012
750ml bottle. Rating #1. Clear reddish/golden pour with a bubbly white head.Nice little funky aroma, light strawberry initially, but that intensified a bit as it warmed. Dry on the tongue with a decent amount of the strawberries coming through throughout the whole tasting process. A decent amount of tartness bordering on sour, very good stuff overall, really glad the strawberries made their self known. (2554)

Tap at The Bruery. Light amber red pour with medium head. Aroma of tart fruits. Tart (not really sour) tastes of strawberries, pomegranate and carmel malt. Good mouth feel. A super nice beer.

From the bottle, a reddish brown and cloudy pour with a small off white head. Funky and some strawberry aroma with a tart and juicy strawberry taste. Fairly good balance of sourness and sweetness.
