Full Sail Wreck the Halls ....

Tonight I will have a Wreck the Halls, Hoppy Holiday Ale, from Full Sail Brewing Company.  It is a seasonal, available November through January.  6.5% ABV is listed on the 1 pint, 6 ounce bottle.  Their web site shows 68 IBUs.

This beer poured with a thin, light beige head.  Beer color is a bright amber/copper.  The aroma is milder, with malt, caramel and some hoppy notes.  The taste has a lot more going on than the aroma.  Malt, some nice hops and bitterness, spice and a bit of warmth from the alcohol.  A little higher foamy, effervescent mouth feel.  Leaves you with some piney bitterness for the aftertaste.  Nice!
