Hood River, Oregon’s Double Mountain Brewery & Cidery has released their seasonal favorite Fa La La La La Winter Ale for 2019. Centennial hops take the stage in this strong but rounded take on an IPA, similar in vein to Sierra Nevada’s Celebration.
More from a press release:
Evergreen and bright citrus notes with resounding choruses of Pilsner and Crystal malts echoing in the refrain. This Winter IPA is full and rounded, delightfully aromatic, and as crisp as a bluebird winter morning. The body has enough weight to warm chilled bones after a day out in the cold. Fa La La La La is currently available on draft and by the bottle at our Hood River Taproom, SE Portland Taproom in the Woodstock neighborhood, and throughout the Northwest.
Fa La La La La Winter Ale 7.5% ABV 85 BU Bottle Description: Bags full of Centennial hops give a delicious citrus and resinous hop character. Pilsner and Crystal malts provide the base for this one-hors open sleigh.
“We look forward to our winter bottling party every year and anxiously await sharing this great beer with the rest of you. Our crew brewed and bottled this together, come join the fun”, Matt Swihart, Brewmaster
