BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Dead Frog Brewing
British Columbia, Canada
deadfrogbrewery.com

Style: Extra Special / Strong Bitter (ESB)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.50%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Massive explosions of tropical fruit from Galaxy and Apollo hops collide with storms of Maris Otter Floor Malt to create a hop-forward brew with a surprisingly smooth finish. Huge amounts of late addition hops and dry-hopping with Centennial and Galaxy, produce a burst of tropical and citrus aroma and flavour, balanced by Maris Otter and some deep caramels from Cara 60. Its apparent sweetness is contrasted with a firm but mild bitterness.

IBUs: 40

Handsome amber brew with plenty of foam in the wine tumbler. Pleasant beery, grainy aroma with some dark roast. A decent hoppy ale that doesn' fit into an obvious category.

Quite malty with a caramel taste. Slightly sweet but a hoppy edge. Brewer rates this at 40 IBUs but I wouldn't say it's actually bitter. A little resiny and a shadow of mango, but there's a dankness too. Woody sensation after some sipping. From the 650 ml bottle purchased at Whidbey Beer Works in Oak Harbor for $4.50.
