By a wide margin, newcomer to our Brewfest Icicle Brewing Company out of neighboring Leavenworth, WA walked away with the most 2011 Rails to Ales Brewfest People’s Choice votes for their … drumroll please … “Bootjack IPA”!
They describe the brew as, “Intense hop flavors and aroma are smoothly balanced in this medium bodied amber ale. With citrusy floral hop notes and a sweet-malty undertone, this American IPA is an amber beer dominated by rich Yakima grown hops. You will smell the hops, taste the hops, and feel the hops. Served in an American crafted traditional 16oz. pint glass. ABV: 6.5% • IBU: 60 OG: 15.7°P • FG: 3.8°P.”
