COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It isn’t always easy being green. Sexy organic hops aren’t easy to come by. This year, we scored hella’ Organic Simcoe® and finally brewed our very first Double IPA. With over 3 lbs of hops per barrel, Kermit The Hop is bright, citrusy and palate-wreckingly bitter. Resinous pine coats the tongue and reluctantly gives way to grapefruit and a grassy bitterness that stays at the back of the tongue for days. Drinking green never tasted this good.

Draft. Poured clear copper color with an average to large frothy white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy complex citrus hop aroma. Medium to full body with slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid beer.

Dogbrick (8141) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 4, 2014
Sample at Daily Growler UA. We have officially reached the bottom of the barrel on hop puns with this one. Clear pale golden color with a medium white head that diminishes steadily to a film. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, hops and roast malt. Medium body with flavors of grapefruit, piney hops and sweet malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a fruity hops aftertaste. Above average overall.

Bigger bitter taste. Lighter sweet, light heat on the end. Bigger body. Kind of slick. Smooth, kind of soft / crisp lighter carbonation. Pretty solid simcoe DIPA to sip on.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 5, 2014
Bottle:   Moderate example, witih a decent body.   Soft pithy hop nose, some citrus peel.   Similar tongue, not terribly hoppy, moreso citrus peel and pith.   Smooth on the tongue.   Has a slight dank or sweaty aspect to it.   Not real bright or floral.   A little mealy after the finish.   Not a hop bomb, decent malt base, good balance, but could be hoppier, brighter, and more floral.

Bomber from Whole Foods. Pours a clear copper color with a large white head. A big citrus nose. A great flavor of mellow fruity hops, resin, some bitterness, not huge bitterness, a bit of orange peel, more resin in the finish. A full bodied big IIPA. The whole here is wonderful. Fluffy palate.
