Pull on your wool socks and crack open a 2° Below Ale. This tasty winter warmer started life as a small batch beer brewed for the Al Johnson Uphill Downhill – a telemark ski race in Crested Butte, Colorado. The Uphill Downhill celebrates the exploits of Al Johnson, letter carrier extraordinaire, who delivered mail by ski in the late 1800’s. Dry hopping during fermentation creates a floral nose with a hint of pepper and spicy, subtle undertones. 2° Below provides a bright, hoppy palate and a cheery warm afterglow.

SlimHabib (459) - Redondo Beach, California, USA - NOV 15, 2014
Bottle pour. Clear copper with a large off white foamy head. Nice mix of malt and hoppy aromas with a strong pepper aroma. Creamy medium body. Biscuit, pepper, and light toast flavor. The only big downfall is the flavor fades quickly.

A delicious beer that is very crisp and refreshing. Nice flavor on the initial sip, but no weird aftertaste that lingers on the tounge.

jebert (500) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 4, 2014
Pours a pretty gold with a medium sized white head that quickly dissipates. Nose is of hops. Fairly creamy on the palate, the taste is hop forward with a malt backbone. Slightly bitter on the finish. Hopheads will like this one. Pairs well with chicken off the grill.

Some time back we had a number of visitors staying with us. For fun, they took turns going out and picking up varieties of beer. I kept notes about what we thought about each, but can not find them anywhere. I did find a bag of empties from that time period, so thought I would at least record those w/o commet and ratings from memory. This is one of those. (When I do find the notes it will be interesting to see how close I came)

Appearence - Pours to a nice rocky head light amber color. Aroma - Strong spruce that covers any malt aromas. Flavor - Piney very dry and bitter the hops override any malt flavor. Mouth feel - astringent. Overall - It’s has to strong of a piney hop profile for my tastes. Not very drinkable.
