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.

Bomber from hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. A fluffy white head leaves cool looking lacing. Almost clear honey golden beer. I smell honey and pine. The flavor begins with grapefruit and then some peach. Pine and resin. Something like tannin. Then melon and zest. I just noticed the ABV and now understand why I can’t feel my legs. This is a very nice beer. Some really tasty flavors and not a negative that I can find.

Shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. I love sharing a beer this way nearly 2000 miles apart. Pours golden orange with a white head. Nose of stone fruit (peach) and grapefruit and some pine. Medium plus body and a resinous mouth feel Flavor is rich caramel malts with a melon, peach, and grapefruit hop dominating. The finish is grapefruit zest with a little alcohol showing; Overall very tasty and easy drinking for such a big beer!

From a bomber pours light golden with small head. Aroma is big hoppy. Drinks nice and finishes dry and fairly bitter that lingers a bit. Also tastes slightly boozy but good overall.

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2015
660ml bottle, Whole Foods, Orlando. Initially a peachy aroma and taste, but this soon gives way to big piney hops and lots of fresh resin. A really sharp, bitter flavour, which definitely makes the tongue tingle, along with a fine carbonation. Coats the mouth, lingers well. Fine stuff, great find forca Brit in touristy Orlando!

Unless I’m forgetting something, easily the best Bison beer I’ve had. They’ve made a couple cool, unique brews but quality has been so so. This is a solid semisweet hop Bomb with tons of citrus and pine. Moderare to heavy bitterness but balanced with sweet.

Light retention and light lacing. Smells of grapefruit, hop resin and grass. Tastes of floral, grass and lemony hops. Dry, bitter aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
