COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Got hops? This vicious IPA does, boasting powerful hop flavor and aroma. Out Hammerhead combines a carefully selected malt base. three varieties of boil hops, and a generous dry-hop to form an India Pale Ale with exceptional balance.

January 2011. I’ve sampled this one on tap at the brewery as well as from the bottle. Amber color with a nice white head. Nice hop balance, citrus and floral aromas. Dry finish that last for a bit. Not bad at all.

Hammerhead IPA is very quaffable. This is a very hoppy beer and the addition of hops in the dry hopping stage is noticeable. ---Rated by E. Rhodes via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft. Orange and caramel malt aroma. Golden yellow color with small head. Sweet orange caramel malt and moderately bitter orange peel hops flavor. Really like a malty IPA - probably in the minority.

theyshookhands (243) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUL 27, 2012
Pours a hazy golden with a nice foamy white head and some lace. Aroma is of, of all things, manure, urine, pine hops, some citrus. Really musky. Nice flavor, however, mostly pine and citrus hops.

LinusStick (2757) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 8, 2012
Ugh...didn’t like this beer. Aroma was near nothing. Thin and metallic with a hint of hops. Pour was a nice cloudy medium gold with a puffy two finger off white head. Taste was thin and nasty. The bitterness was there, but it wasn’t a hoppy bitterness. It was like a putting your finger in your mouth after you’ve been handling change bitterness if that makes sense to anyone. Very thin mouth feel and the nice strong carbonation drowns out any real flavors. The finish leaves an uncomfortable bitterness in the throat. Very weird and not good.

The pour is a hazy orange with a quickly falling white head. The nose is citrus hops and fruity bubble gum. The flavor is lightly bitter with a dry finish.

22oz bottle-pours amber with a rich offwhite head that dissipates. Aroma is pine/resin, some light malt. Taste is drying pine/resin hops with some bite, some light malt with a bit of sweet.
