Hopworks Urban Brewing // Abominable Winter Ale // Portland, OR // 7.3% ABV // 70 IBU
I can't seem to get enough of the HUB Abominable this winter! Also you have to make do with the glassware you own when you don't have a snifter...
Color: Amber, cedar, barley brown
Smell: Earthy and floral with a slight tinge of sweetness and spice
Taste: Subtle yet complex balance of winter spices and malt sweetness that still allows the citrus hoppiness to come through, giving it a true Pacific Northwest characteristic.
Overall: A winter ale that I'll come back to again and again. A great balance of winter flavors without the heaviness often associated with winter ales.
