COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The ThunderHop I.P.A. has an intense bitterness, flavor and aroma. We chose to use two varieties of American hops in the brewing process. The color is copper to amber and the aroma is noticeably hoppy due to the use of Glaciers in the dry hop process. You will also pick up a complexity from fruit-like esters. The body is big and malty with some caramel sweetness.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear yellow gold with medium white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is floral and earth hop. Medium body, pine, resin, grass, light bitterness, very good.

dresden (1435) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - JUN 7, 2016
Draft in Pittsburgh. Aroma is slightly piney, light.. Underwhelming. Flavors of too heavy to the malt side, very much a previously thought of East y coast ipa.

boto (2086) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - MAY 14, 2016
Draught @ Tapped: This one pours a hazy orangish color. There was a wisp of an off white head. Minimal lacing. It has a little bit of a lighter nose. Some tropical hops, pineapple notes as well as some orange and grapefruit. The taste is good. Pretty good hop bite to it. Grapefruit, pineapple with a decent malt body.

AirForceHops (6090) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 4, 2016
12 oz. bottle from a trade with Joshua C. on Untappd. No date coding on bottle. Color is a unfiltered amber, fast dying head. Aroma is mild pine, weak fruits and lighter caramel.

Flavor starts with pineapple, candied oranges with a mild caramel malt base. The bitterness is pine resin with a slightly herbal. Bitterness is low with a slick / sticky texture. Pretty average single IPA.

Drank from a pint glass, poured from a twelve ounce bottle, thank you Björn! Tastes like an overly hoppy IPA, but they did show a nice complexity of hop flavors/aromas tho.
