We brewed From the Hip last Monday! Here are details about our first batch!

BATCH #1From the Hip
ABV: 7%
SRM: 5
IBU’S: 23

From the Hip is a refreshingly complex Belgian-style strong ale brewed with rose hips. It pours a hazy, glowing golden color with a fluffy, white head. The aroma entices with light perfume-like floral notes, to be followed by balanced flavors redolent of citrus, spice, and honey. The grist is 1/3 malted wheat, lending plush mouthfeel.

Best served 40-45° F. From the Hip pairs well with delicately flavored foods: pan-seared tuna or scallops, arugula salad with lemon vinaigrette, burrata, mozarella, chèvre, fresh fruit with crème fraiche and honey, and strawberry shortcake.
