This brew uses malted barley from the midwest and highly aromatic Amarillo hops from the northwest. The hops are added both during the brewing process as well as post-fermentation, resulting in a hoppy but not overly bitter experience. It's a smooth but concentrated ale that offers loads of hop-driven aromatics against a toasted-grain and biscuity malt frame. A hint of sweet orange oil flavor unfolds on the finish. Try with lemon- and herb-roasted chicken or spiced pork tenderloin.
