Boldly hoppy, just like the award-winning craft beers the brewery is renowned for, the seasonal offering was created when a newer team member committed a ‘folly’ by mistakenly mixing two different beer tanks, resulting in 500 barrels (or 15,500 gallons!) of the merry new brew. A taste of the resulting batch revealed it to be delicious, a hop bomb with a winter spice flavor. It’s Green Flash’s unexpected gift to IPA enthusiasts this holiday season. Jolly Folly is dominated by resinous, spicy hops. Its piney, floral aroma yields to a full malty flavor that is nicely balanced by multiple layers of citrus and tropical hop flavors.
