The Bottles are Flowing…

It’s December 23th so lets open our second to last door…

It’s Abominable Winter Ale an organic offering from Hopworks Brewery.

Hopworks Abominable Winter Ale

Abominable Winter Ale is housed in an amazing yeti adorned bottle; perhaps my favourite artwork of the season. Abominable pours a very clear amber orange with just a little white head and some lacing. Lots of citrus hops on the nose and a bit of malt. First sip is a mix of hops, spicy and citrus, at the front of the palate then the caramel malt flavour comes through at the finish. As you drink the bitterness becomes more prominent making this one pretty typical for a Northwest Coast ale. Mouthfeel is clean, medium bodied and there is some strength to this ale giving it a bit of a warmer quality; however, setting aside the winter-eque bottle nothing else really seems that Christmas like to me it just seems like a good Hopworks ale.


I am giving Abominable seven candy canes (six for the beer and one for the bottle) out of the possible ten.
