Optimism Brewing // Bulldog British Hoppy Ale // Seattle, WA // 5.6% ABV
Color: Burnt orange, hues of amber.
Smell: English malt and candied orange.
Taste: Citrus hops and bitter orange peel balances out the distinct, bready malt. While the smooth mouthfeel and perfect amount of carbonation that cleans the palette, making you eager for the next sip.
Overall: A richer, more bitter version of The One, their London Standard Ale, Bulldog takes on the profile of an English style IPA. A nice PNW take on a British ale that's clean, crisp, yet different.
