Mendocino Brewing Co – Eye of the Hawk – American Strong Ale
Appearance: Dark amber with the slightest bit of haze, a quickly fading head that is full of lacing.
Aroma: Biscuity, apples and other white fruits.
Taste:Bitter and sweet battle for enjoyable dominance but the finish is orange peel.
Mouthfeel: Creamy with light carbonation, a medium body and long finish.
The 8% ABV is evident immediately. The hoppy bite is very enjoyable as it is subtled by the beers malty sweetness.
