We have as much love for the land as ol' Teddy; this is why we spend so much time finding the perfect raw materials to use in our beers. "The Big Broadcast" features the finest ingredients we've come across, including a whole bunch of locally-grown hops. Striking the perfect balance between the bitterness, hop flavor, malt flavor, alcohol, and aroma, "The Big Broadcast" drinks smooth (maybe a little too smooth). Enjoy this beer in a glass or from the can, indoors or out, just enjoy.

Malts: 2-Row. Munich. CaraPils. Hops: Mosaic. Centennial. Chinook. Food Pairing: Fried Chicken with White Gravy. Teddy's favorite. Album Pairing: Farm - Dinosaur Jr.

Very hazy yellow but not turbid. fat cream colored head that lasts. Just a slight bit of color on that malt. Nose is sweet pineapple. Soft fresh herbs, mint and citrus peel. A bit of hop dankness. Orange and a floral like rose petals.

Drinks so light for all the abv. Like fruit punch. Just a touch of bitterness form alcohol to give it away in the finish. fruity with firm pale malts. peppery spicy hop with it's bitterness finished it . A softer bubble. No real bite. Medium dry. Sweet, delicious like a beer popsicle.

L: Hazy orange amber with a nice white head. Moderate retention; great sheets of lacing.

S: Juicy red grapefruit, orange zest, orange marmalade, big biscuit malt, pine sap.

T: Huge orange and grapefruit flavor. Orange peel zest and oils aplenty, with the tart sweetness of pink grapefruit juice throughout. The malt backbone is a big biscuit, leaning towards caramel, but never too sweet. In fact, it ends very dryly with some soft pine needle and tons more citrus peel. Dangerously easy to drink.

F: Medium-full-bodied, smooth and rich and moderately carbonated. Smooths on the tongue, with some residual stickiness of hop oils.

O: This is a great WC-style DIPA! Stupidly easy to drink at over 9% and chock full of hop goodness.

On tap at The Old Toad in Rochester, NY.

This one pours a light and half-way clear orange, with a small head, and a good amount of lacing.

Smells like orange and pineapple, with some slight pine, and a bit of hop oil.

This is another solid new one from War Horse. They have really improved lately. This has a nice mild pineapple, tangerine, and grapefruit flavor, with a firm bitterness on the finish.

This is lighter bodied, much more so than the actual ABV would suggest, with no indication of the ABV, and a good level of carbonation.

This isn't quite as good as Lieutenant Dan, but it's still quite solid nonetheless.
