Before you Citrass Down, better have some Pepperation H
Cherry wood smoked amber ale, brewed with chile peppers and aged with hickory wood. Another great experiment from your loving friends at Against the Grain Brewery. We startout with a base of pale ale and cherry wood smoked malt giving a nice sweet smokey flavor and aroma. The addition of caramel and V ienna malt lends toasty and caramel flavors while the German Magnum hops balance out the sweetness with a clean bitterness. Then we get a little weird by adding the puree of Guajillo, Morita, Pasilla and Chipolte peppers. This combination provides earthy, dark fruit and smokey chile flavors. Then we take it a step further with the post fermentation addition of Habanero to give bright fruit flavors and a slight heat and hickory wood to give some honey and cocoa like flavors. Very complex and drinkable beer.
