Highway 78 Scotch Ale Review

Highway 78 Scotch Ale

Scotch Ale [Type 32] 8.8% ABV

A collaboration between Green Flash, Stone, and Pizza Port Brewing Company, this is an excellent scotch ale. You might think 3 west coast breweries would produce a hoppy interpretation of a scotch ale, but this is a straight up, traditional scotch ale.

I had this in a tulip glass. Pours dark ruby, with a 2 inch head that dissipates quickly. Nice malty smell. First sip was a good scotch ale. I let it sit for a bit to see how it turns out. With the high malt and alcohol I expect some changes with warming.

It gets sweeter and smokier as it warms. A very good beer.

Rating

A hell of a beer. I'd drink this any day. One was more than good enough for me.
