As the daylight hours reach their shortest time, the green we see outside comes mostly from the majestic pine trees of Michigan. We’re paying homage to the intense scent of these trees in our latest specialty release, Juicy Tree. Let your senses indulge in the aroma of walking in a winter wonderland with this holiday release.
Juicy Tree (7.5% ABV – 65 IBU) is an experimental India Pale Ale made with blue spruce tips, juniper berries, and cranberries. Big aromatics of piney evergreen and sweet berries tingle the senses. After some slightly tart and tangy flavors up front, a harmonious balance between pleasant fruit sweetness and bitter pine is reached. A sizable malt bill, ample hop additions, and the floral qualities of American Ale yeast, all contribute to symmetry of this beer.
From picking the spruce tips, to the brewhouse, the cellar, and the bottling line, our staff has produced this beer with the love we feel during the holiday season. So cozy up inside by a fire, bask in the glow of holiday lights, and sip on a Juicy Tree while you enjoy time with friends and family. Be sure to pick up a six pack if you see it, this specialty release is like the season that inspired it, gone too soon.
