This beer gets it's great flavour from a skillful blend of two hops from the Yakima Valley. Amarillo for its spicy fruity character&Summit which is the most pugnacious of all American hops! Scarlet Macaw marks the mid point in the nautically themed""Hawse Buckler""trilogy. Tart gooseberry and soft peach on the nose. Gooseberries and fruit to taste, before an intense bitterness that's as sharp as a macaw's screech!
