Foley Brothers Pieces of Eight

“Rich toasted malt backbone to support the huge hops bill. Hops are a nice blend of citrus and tropical fruit. Orange and mango with a touch of pineapple, lemon, grapefruit. Finishes intensely bitter but not harsh. The hops flavor is every bit as pronounced as the nose—it’s huge and fresh. The herbal spiciness is here in spades, but now I can get a bit of pineapple, evergreen, and perfume as well. Finishes sweet and juicy with some balanced bitterness and some warmth. The body is not big, but is nice and allows a good showcase of the hops.”
