Clipper City Heavy Seas Winter Storm Category 5 Ale

Ahhh...another bitter. Imperial ESB to be exact! And a heavy 7.5% ABV to boot - that will definitely warm me up on a cold winter night!

This brew is ruby red and smells malty and sweet. It pours with a huge three finger plus head. The English malts pair with both English and US grown hops to blend into a sweet caramel base with an awesome bitter finish. The mouthfeel is a little thin for my taste, but the flavor certainly makes up for it. Big fan of Clipper City right now!
