Draft at Nodding Head. Dark ruby brown with runny lace. Sweet malty flavors but finishes dry. Good carbonation. Caramel pine. Raisins. Nice hop bite to bring some balance. Slipstream (2678) - USA - MAY 19, 2012
Both sweet and hoppy, like some barleywines. A handsome pour (on tap at NH) with orange and yellow hilites. A fine, perfumey floral hop aroma. I tasted some lime, brown sugar, brine, and yeasty bitterness, It is earthy and nutty, but the flavors clash a bit. Named in honor of whiney hockey star Sidney Crosby (not singer David Crosby as I originally thought). r464 (2362) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 2, 2012
Deep coppery color with a thin tannish head. Very crisp with a nice flavor of raisins and other dried fruit. Not extremely malty. A bit of hoppiness, but not overly bitter. Surprisingly light and drinkable considering the alcohol content.
