I haven’t had enough Northwestern style hoppy ales to be convinced that the style deserves its own category, but if I keep having examples as tasty as Captain Sig’s, I’ll happily become an advocate for legitimizing the style. Rich, sweet malts mixed with earthy, citrusy hops. The balance between caramel sweetness and spicy bitterness is done quite smartly. Plus, that’s an awesome bottle.

Draft at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a reddish brown with a frothy white head and lots of clingy lace. The aroma is ripe citrus, light floral, light herbal. The flavour is moderate bitter sweet with a smooth, rich, fruity, yeast, alcoholic, bitter hop, light chocolate palate and la ingering alcoholic bitter finish. It tastes much stronger than it is.
