Big Sky Powder Hound ....

Tonight I will try a Powder Hound Winter Ale from Big Sky Brewing Company.  It is a seasonal available October through March.  7.2% ABV is listed on the twelve ounce bottle.  The Big Sky web site shows 60 IBUs.

This beer poured with a small to medium, light beige colored head.  Beer color is a slightly darker amber.  The aroma has some citrus and a floral/herbal quality.  Also a little sweet malt.  The taste is more of the same - citrus/pine/floral/herbal hops, some sweet malt for balance.  Some bitterness builds, but it seems to stay in the background.  Medium or a little fuller in flavor.  Effervescent mouth feel.  Somewhat dry finish that leaves your mouth dry and a little bitter, but not much more aftertaste.  Tasty!
