Garrison Brewing 15th

Garrison Brewing celebrated their 15th anniversary with 15 types of hops, mango & ginger for a 9% strong ale. Goldings, palisade, millenium, columbus, galaxy, tettnang, bullion, crystal, cascade, amarillo, strisselspalt, berle, citra, Mt Hood & Brewers Gold.

The looks and initial smell reminded me of a west coast style IPA. The mango taste sweetens the bitter hops taste and some some the peppery taste of ginger comes on at the very end. At 9%, this is not a light weight, however it does go down crisp. There will be a second production of this beer, but expect a few more tweaks and a little darker. This is a very interesting brew.
