Parrot in a Palm Tree (Karl Strauss Brewery)

CHRISTMAS IN JULY Beer #2: PARROT IN A PALM TREE

My roommate was singing the praises of this beer ever since he had it back in December.

You’ll never guess what I decided to do. Parrot in a Palm Tree is a Baltic Porter with 35 IBUs and an 8.5% ABV. This is the first beer in Karl Strauss’s “Twelve Days of Christmas San Diego Style” series and was released in November of 2010.
