This beer was a sorta throw-it-together when friends came over to brew, with a desire to use C-hops for flavor. It turned out exceptionally well, without a lot of work on my part. US-05 provided a beautifully clean finish. Flavor starts nice and fruity tropical, which quickly turns to a nice biscuity malt. It finishes with a slight piney flavor and aroma from the chinook. Surprisingly, there is no heat from the alcohol, which is hidden behind the maris otter flavor.
