Alaskan winter ale, brewed with spruce tips—not sure if this is in place of or to supplement the hops, or even how much of a presence they actually have. But, the power of suggestion is a strong thing indeed.
This looks fantastic, a glowing amber with a toasted white cotton puff atop it. Thick & cloudy like the SF fog. The bouquet is pleasantly piney, like an evergreen or pine forest, backed by an orange marmalade note. Flavor has a mild bitterness, and there’s some definite pine notes, and a sweetish caramel malt finish. Smooth and enjoyable.
