Brewed at Devils Backbone Brewing Company (Roseland, VA).
A collaboration imperial red ale, brewed after both breweries won medals for their Irish-style red ales at the 2016 World Beer Cup℠.
Upon release Iron Leaf glides bright and clear. Belgian bubble gum aromas spin off into lemon zest and clove. Cereal grain and lemongrass flavors bend its path back as it warms in the glass. All together the result flies true to target: a celebratory pint. Just watch out for that first branch…
The initial tartness of this kettle-soured ale crests through the aroma of salt and coriander. As it recedes, fresh citrus zest adds its own notes to the chord. No better way to wind down the rhythm of a long, sunny day.
