Bifrost Winter Ale, from Elysian Brewing Company
One doesn't think of hoppy when they think of winter ales (or at least, I don't...), but maybe they (I) should, as this bitter treat takes a nip out of the winter air!

Fresh Hop Pale Ale, from Great Divide Brewing Company
Season: Fresh Hop
A seriously delicious pale ale, with a fresh citrusy hop bitterness - which makes sense, as it is a fresh hop ale...

C-Note Imperial Pale Ale, from Lompoc
Season: Christmas/Holiday/ Yule/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa/Thanksgiving/Black Friday
I'm confused. It's an "Imperial Pale Ale" that is, in fact, copper in color. With the color, one would expect an Oktoberfesty-type ale with a mild bitter start and strong malty finish. This copper-colored pale ale starts out with a hugely strong hoppy, bitter taste that stays on through the alcohol finish (that sort of tastes malty, but is more booze than malt).
Don't let my confusion fool you into thinking that I don't like it. I do indeed like it and will most likely indulge in more before the end of "the season."
