Winter brings to mind snow covered pine forests so we wanted to make it pine dominate with an underlying fruity hop character that makes you almost think fruitcake.
Bend Brewing Co Sno’d In Winter Ale
Sno’d In Winter IPA was conceived as a “more sessionable ” 6% ABV winter IPA that has great malt character and balance without muddling the hop flavor. BBC constructed Sno’d In around a base of 2-row and Golden Promise malt with light carastan and rye malt providing depth. Comet and Chinook Salvo in the whirlpool provide a clean pine and orange rind hop flavor while a double dry hop of Amarillo and Simcoe hops amp up the hop aroma.
