Serious hop bitterness, along with an unyielding grapefruit bouquet from the Amarillo dry hop, balances the malty richness of four varieties of imported Belgian caramel malts. Pours a spectacular crimson with a creamy tan head. A generous addition of rye malt accentuates a spicy, crisp finish.
Tropic King bursts with fruity tropical characteristics of passion fruit, mango, and peach from the New Zealand Rakau hops used. Combined with the pepper and ginger flavors produced by our house yeast, this beer is a flavor extravaganza that has developed a loyal following.
The early brewers touted the health benefits of the milk sugar in this beer which today relates mainly to the increased amount of calories(no real health benefits…sorry). The milk sugar adds a well rounded sweetness to this dark beer and makes it an outstanding, year ‘round stout.
