Notes/Commercial Description:
"This annual favorite is a sublime hybrid of an American style IPA and a winter warmer. The result is a bold brew that celebrates the holidays with an intriguing blend of Centennial hops providing elegant citrus notes balanced by a backdrop of a rich caramel malt body. Dry hopped to amplify the aromas and flavor. Available in 22oz. bottles and draught. ABV 6.5% IBU 68"

22 oz bottle of 2012 release, into Deschutes tulip snifter

A - Small head. Little retention. Would like more foam, but the color of the beer is a deep pleasant amber. Nice clarity.

S - Faint bready malts. Very faint hops. Nothing unpleasant, but not much to work with.

T - Can definitely detect those "winter warmer" malts. They play nicely with the hop notes, but it's all pretty faint. I want more from this beer. Gets better as it warms.

M - Kind of thin. Almost but not quite watery. Not bad, but not good.

O - So basically I wish this beer would go farther with the concept. In fact, I think the concept is great, and I really enjoyed the taster of this I had a few years back at a Winter Beer Festival. Unfortunately, this beer fails to meet any of my expectations. It's not bad or offensive, but it isn't doing much. Actually, if you are newer to craft beer, etc - you might really like this. I think I would have enjoyed this a lot more at the beginning of my craft beer journey. I'll certainly never turn one down, and I may even check in with this beer next year.

It has a LOT of potential, but Full Sail needs to kick it up a notch. WRECK the halls, please! But really do it next time!
