This is my third crowler from Garrison City. The fourth contains their Crowbar porter and is sitting in the back of my fridge as an experiment to see how well the crowler works. I will probably open it up in the next few weeks to see how the carbonation and taste held up.
This was the original batch of Bale Fire at 5.8% ABV. I visited the brewery last week and they have tweaked the second batch as it now stands at 7.0% ABV and the hops come through much better. This first batch had a sweet start with a nice floral and slight lemon bitterness. Overall a very mild and drinkable IPA that has improved in the second batch and may change even further before they settle on a final recipe.
Alcohol Content: 5.8% ABV
