COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Specially brewed for Illinois, Hopsoulution Ale is a German Double India Pale Ale with a dark amber hue brewed with Premiant and Smaragd hops bringing a heady hop aroma to a malty base, rich with caramel & toffee notes.

Stine (1584) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 1, 2014
Misty, soft orange pour. Pungent and aromatic peach and guava aroma with a floral, soapy snap. Soft, buoyant, and alluring. Balance is taut in the flavor where german hops offer a subtle grassiness against the high-acid fruitiness. Wet caramel mouthfeel; well attenuated but lacking for airiness and crisp texture. The subtlety and abnormality of the hop presence is aesthetically interesting.
