Powder Hound Review




Powder Hound is a great blend of sweet and hoppy bitterness. The orange-red that pours from a can of Powder Hound makes the white head pop. An initial sip invites hints of toasty malts, caramel, and even touches of ginger. Piney and citrus elements are present as well, creating a nuanced and layered experience. The 7.2% ABV of Powder Hound provides a hint of a burn to moderate the sweet notes of the beer. The beer is able to maintain its hoppy backbone to the last sip. Rather than becoming muddled, the Powder House is a great beer that ensures the different flavors and touches stay separate. Everything works together in this effort to make one of the best winter/holiday/Christmas ales that we have had the chance to review.


Make sure to visit the Big Sky Brewing website of Facebook ( ) for more information about the brewery and the array of beers which they produce. Powder Hound is a seasonal beer that is available from November to March; make sure to pick it up in cans or in bottles to experience a fulfilling and delectable division from the winter.


Rating: 8.5/10
