In order to protect themselves from attacks from native tribes, including those led by Dragging Canoe, Joseph Black and other settlers constructed a fort along the banks of Wolf Creek. Inspired by these hearty souls, this brown ale is fortified with the best of all brewing ingredients in one glass. A blend of American malts balances the incredible hop load. In a blended style of hop intense IPA and smooth, malty English brown ale, each glass is literally saturated with hop bitterness, flavor, and aroma. You will get a strong citrus experience from Cascade and Centennial hops that stand at attention to accept the boldness in the malt bill.
6.3% ABV, 71 IBU, 21 SRM.

on tap-pours a retaining tan head that laces and brown color. Aroma is resin/hop leaves [cascade, centennial, simcoe], some medium malt. Taste is resin/herbal/peat hop leaves [cascade, centennial, simcoe], some medium malt, no nut, no cocoa, and I’m guessing there’s a dry hopping that occurred. Finishes dry.
