COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Much of the history of Hopothermia is lost to the mists of time. We know that the windswept lone brewer dreamt of a Double IPA so bold and packed full of hop flavor that it could keep the wild wolves from the door of his remote cabin. We know he was able to converse with the creatures of the woodsexcept for the bears who slept through the cold winter, and the mink, who were just really super rude. And we know he skillfully crafted a beer that became the stuff of legend.

There are strange brews made where glaciers cascade
By the brewers who know no bounds.
For they stuff in the hops til the temperature drops
And then call for a few more rounds.
In Alaska, it seems, every brewer dreams
of a bold Double IPA.
Hopothermias the beer, in the Last Frontier
That will keep the wild wolves at bay.

Bottle - Orange, caramel and boozy heat. Clear gold with a decent beige head. Lots of orange and a bit of medicinal and herbal notes. A bit boozy and just not that great. Huge miss.

Bottle. Pours a deep orange with a thin head. Moderate malts, medium body. Hops are herbal and pine like, and seem to be balanced nicely with the overall brew. Finish is somewhat sweet. A respectable offering.
