A big, bold hop-forward west coast style IPA. The malt character is subdued to showcase a blend of Simcoe, Amarillo, and Centennial Hops creating a lingering dry finish with notes of pine, grapefruit, and apricot.

12 ounce bottle thanks to Donnie. Dark pour for IPA. Another fruity caramel bomb. Not my thing with IPAs. And not West Coast, for sure.

HonkeyBra (3896) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - AUG 12, 2015
On tap at the brewpub. Pours an orangish amber with a medium white head. Bright, citrus and tropical fruit aroma. Flavor is a rich expression of hop fruitiness. Grapefruit, citrus rind, and tropical fruit. Medium honey and bread malt. Medium bodied, lively carbonation. On tap, this is unbelievable. Wonderful IPA.

Pour on tap at HopCat, hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of orange, pine, slight grass into a bit of earth, touch of spice notes into a hint of lemon. Taste was a mix of pine, orange, grapefruit into a bit of caramel, bread, some slight fruity notes, spice, finishing bitter.

Moderate floral hop bitterness, with notes of citrus peel, grains, resin, lemon, pine and faint yeast. Felt a bit lighter than expected but works nicely.

On tap at Graydon’s Crossing. Nice fruity hop aroma, aromatic and light sweetness. Carbonic gaseousness. Peach and apricot. Pale golden clear with haze, topped with thin lacing head. Medium body with medium-high carbonation. Nice IPA. Caramel, biscuit for sweetness, and hoppy notes with grapefruit and apricot. Big hoppy bitter after.
