Prison City Brewing 4 Piece with Strata
What the brewers say
Our single-hop pale-ale series features Strata from Oregon. Nice dank flavor and aroma. Great fruity and citrusy undertones as well.
What our panel thought
Thick, velvety blanket of foam. In the aroma, pink Starburst with a vegetal note. Grassy flavor with lemon custard and honey malt; nicely balanced sweetness with light background bitterness. Slick, tongue-coating mouthfeel. A bit unwieldy, raw, but with high points.
What our editors thought
On the nose, a defined and edgy lemon-tropical blend has a crisp linen through line. Curious and unexpected. On the sip, juicy lemon and tangerine with light peach and apricot, just enough bitterness to keep that edge, and a pleasing taut finish.
