Iron Hill Hopstinger
Prior to a wedding in Lancaster, a few of my friends and I stopped in to Iron Hill for lunch and a few drinks. The first beer I ordered was Hopstinger, served on cask. The beer pours an orange-golden color with a bubbly off-white head. The aroma consists of caramel, lemon, pine, honey, and tangerine. The taste is smooth and lemony with a good caramel base. Bits of tangerine and orange peek through as well before the pine and dry finish. There is a sweet honey after taste. The alcohol content is 7.0% ABV. This was a very dry and amazing Imperial Amber, and I was glad we made the trip, specifically for this beer.
