Carton SS Hief

Our cats have this habit of shoving themselves into one small cat bed at the same time. Since they’re all relatively large cats, Val decided that it was a good idea to buy them a larger cat bed. They all love it. We definitely spoil our cats. Anyways, let’s get to the beer.

ABV: 8.4%

Style: American Double/Imperial IPA

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Every now and then we like to leave our nimble little work horse at the dock and go out for a luxury cruise on a bigger Boat. For SS Hief we explore what technology has to offer in the form of a modernized hop engine. We shored Boat’s stony, linear, crisp, dry frame with some extra wheat, doubled the size of everything, and moved the entire second dry-hopping to up-to-the-minute powder versions of Boat’s hops. Drink SS Hief and let’s see how the new money set cruises.”

Random: I’ve never been on a cruise before. Val and I have considered taking one to Alaska.

The beer poured with a large three finger, white head. It dissipated slowly and left a lot of lacing on the glass. The body was slightly cloudy and yellow in color. There was some carbonation visible. The nose was filled with wheat and grassy hops. The taste was incredibly crisp with lots of wheat. There was grass as well as a touch of pine. The body was medium thickness with lots of carbonation. It had a lengthy finish with grass and wheat. This beer was very refreshing with hidden alcohol. I would definitely have this one again.

Untappd Rating: 4.0/5.0
