No Holds Barred is a pumped up hoppy blonde ale that pours bright golden like the beautiful mane of Mr. America himself with a light lacing of white foam. The aroma is full of geranium, orange peel, beach grass, and ginger with hints of green tea and honeydew. This blonde drinks dry with assertive bitterness reminiscent of lemongrass and kaffir lime. Hops lead the charge but are supported by a pleasant cracker like malt backbone and a dry finish. No Holds Barred packs enough flavor for Thunder Lips into a package small enough for mere mortals to imbibe.
