    Thin lace, slightly more than Angry Planet
    Aroma: Chinook over roasted bread
    Taste: Big Chinook bitterness, lingers. "Kiln" amber lends a.... slightly roasted/toasted/baked bread element.

    I suspect this beer is old because others have talked about big aroma and that doesn't exist. I would call it a chinook beer, which is big bitter, resiny, and piney, over roasted malt.

    It's not a session beer. It's a big meal and one is plenty.

Beer Notes
  • The hoppiest IPA in the Midwest at 115 IBU! The Northwest Passage, once a virtually impassable route through Canada it has become the "secret" submarine route. Made with Canadian malts and four American hops, Northwest Passage goes well with Pho, Buffalo wings & bon fires.
