33 Acres of Hanzo
A west coast double brown ale, sitting boldly with a higher alcohol content and a delightful hop twist. The black malts are invisible marked only by evidence of the senses, or a lingering after thought.
American Strong Ale
Not a style, per se, but the only logical category to incorporate the plethora of strong, stylistically vague beers coming from American micros these days. Some are related to English Strong Ales, but with more hop, while others are ultra-strong variants on the IPA theme. But no matter how varied their origins or characters might be, all are intense, potent, with generous quantities of hops and malt.
