What To Imbibe On:
North Country Brewing - Stinky Hippie. Hailing from Slippery Rock, Pennsylvania this brewery is bringing their tasty treats to the masses in the vessel of an aluminum can.  Stinky Hippie is a 6% pale ale that is an amber pour with a big fluffy head, with a nice balance of semi-sweet malts, moderate hop profile of citrus fruits, pithy, and slick mouthfeel. 
Commercial Description - Do I smell patchouli or is it hops? Bob thought this was a good name for a pale ale, so Sean created this beer with different, very pungent hops. Peace and love.
