From the first pour you'll find that this is no common winter beer, with a blast of fresh, resinous, and piney hops. Along with this, you'll find a subtle alcohol note that tickles the nostrils. The hops don't stop at the aroma, as the flavor mimics the bouquet, showing off a generous portion of fresh floral hops that are juicy in character. The hop blast is balanced with a toffee sweetness, and the hop bitterness is mild. 2 Below finishes sweet, with a mild lingering hop bite on the cheeks and a moderate alcohol warmth in the throat and chest. Enjoy this with a salad topped with grilled chicken breast and a light dressing.
