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.

bottle @ House of 1000 Beers / New Kensington PA --- Cloudy dark amber, off-white head that sinks to a bubbly rim, sheets of lace. Taste is malt that begins to sweeten through the swallow before being snuffed out by citrus hops. The hops add unsweetened tea during a long finish. Not sure this one is fresh.

PorterPounder (7412) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 27, 2016
Pittsburgh, PA - on tap at Church Brew Works. Slight haze to the medium copper pour, light bone colored head that clings to the edge of the glass. Heavy spruce aroma, some papaya fruitiness, maple syrup sweetness. Flavor has some citrus accents, a bit of pineapple fruitiness, some caramel sweetness, Kind of a throwback to old-timey West Coast IPA. Thickish mouthfeel.

dresden (1477) - 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.

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.
