"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"

22oz bomber in a tall pint glass. Well within freshness date.

A- Nice amber color, bright and clear. 1f off-white head, sticky lacing. Little evidence of carbonation.

S-Sweet caramel malts, some alcohol. Hops deliver some spice aroma, some citrus, orange rind, pine.

T- Some sweet winter breads, citrus hops.

M- Light, drinkable body with more better carbonation than it shows. Finishes dry enough.

O- Good enough: drinkable and the winter ale/ ipa mix works.

one of the more clever and enjoyable full sail beers ive had. 2011 vintage has lost some of its hop intensity, particularly aromatically, but this is still drinking really nicely. copper in color, mostly clear, with a patchy white head that sticks around. the nose is akin to an English ipa, sweet caramel and toffee and butterscotch and honey all coming from the malt, big and sweet, but there is more hops than just bittering balance. there is an oily hop aroma, not as fresh as it probably was, but it transfers a ton of flavor. citrusy and bright hops compliment and contradict the sweet grain complex, its really well balanced and chock full of flavor. I also appreciate the relative lack of holiday spice flavors, but rather a good drinking beer for the holiday season instead of trying to bottle the holidays. not a huge fan of English ipas, but this one is great. also love the name. well carbonated still and full enough bodied to suit colder weather yet remain drinkable. I like this one a lot.
