Wreck The Halls 300x225 Full Sail Wreck The Halls

Although this isn't the first time I've had Full Sail's Wreck the Halls, this is the first time I have blog'd about the beer I am drinking mid-swig.  I will try to keep this short and sweet but we all know how that can go.

Wreck the Halls pours a dark hazy copper with medium head which dissipates quickly.  This beer definitely looks more winter warmer than IPA, but don't let that fool you; hop-heads will not be disappointed with this Christmas beer.  It has a very lively aroma - the caramel malt blends in well with the sweet citrus hops.  At first I can smell citrus but after the head disappears all I can pick up on is the caramel malt.  The taste starts off with a hint of piney floral hops but is quickly enveloped by the malt body of this beer.  I know there are some nice caramel hints from the aroma but I can't taste them very much.  The sweetness is carried over and finished by sweet, citrusy hops which  taste very much like grapefruit.  This is a full bodied beer with medium mouth feel.  It hits you with all of the flavors very quickly but lingers on a dry citrus hop finish.  It is a very drinkable beer that will appeal to hardcore IPA enthusiasts as well as the casual winter beer drinker.
