Notes/Commercial Description:
Started as an experimental Amber testing a new varietal hop just on the market in 2013, hands down here – Mosaic hops give Storm Cat (a stud Thoroughbred who had a 24-hour armed guard for his, talents) a grapefruity essence with a residual sweetness from caramel malts.

Stopped into One Trick Pony from a recommendation from some guys we were talking to at Flossmoor. Very glad I made the trip.

Stormcat pours fairly clear amber with a small beige head. Lots of citrus hoppiness in the nose along with some pine. The owner said it's an all-mosaic hopped beer and it certainly smells the part. Light caramel malts as well.

Very similar flavor. Kind of like a more citrusy Simcoe. Lots of citrus up front light and refreshing with a little bit of pine for a contrast. Called an amber, this one does have some caramel malts to balance the hops. It's definitely a cross between an APA and an amber which is right in my sweet spot.

Light bodied, but not watery. Good carbonation and really didn't think it was quite this high in alcohol. If not for the ABV, I'd say this was a session beer.

Went home with a growler of this to share with other DLD folks. Very nice beer and others I only sampled were as well. Definitely make this stop if you are in the area for FFF.

Serving type: on-tap
