Lancaster Brewing Company Boss Hog

Happy Tuesday! I took the day off to get some things around the house done because I worked from home yesterday. My parents are flying back home today and their flight is delayed. It’s looking like I will not be getting a lot of sleep tonight. Anyways, this was a beer that I had at the Continental Tavern. Let’s see how it was.


ABV: 9%

Style: American Double/Imperial IPA

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “A combination of three different hops gives this ale an uplifting citrus flavor. Boss Hog gets its amber hue and full-bodied mouth feel from a very generous addition of four different malts. The lasting bitter finish welcomes another sip of this refreshing brew.”

Random: The restaurant was insanely loud and I couldn’t hear myself think.

This beer poured with a half a finger of cream-colored head that dissipated slowly and left some lacing on the glass. The body was a mahogany color with light carbonation visible. The nose had pine notes and then a lot of malt. It was sweet and sticky caramel malt. The taste was heacy on the booze and was almost like a barleywine. It had a lots of caramel malt with sticky hops at the end, but the booze really detracted from the other flavors. It had a thick and chewy body with light carbonation. The finish was long and boozy. I could see what this beer was trying to do, but it was just a huge miss for me. I wouldn’t have this one again.

Untappd Rating: 3.5/5.0
