COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is defined by its pronounced hop bitterness, flavor and aroma. It has a solid malt backbone that works with the citrusy American hops. The hop bouquet resonates like flavors of tangerine and ruby red grapefruit. The mouth feel is crisp and dry leaving a balance of bitterness and rich malt on the palate. It is golden honey in color.
Hops: Chinook, Columbus, Cascade, Summit, Eldorado, Amarillo

3fourths (8593) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 27, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2013 hazed gold body with a fine white head. strong American hop nose ( lemon / citrus, dried grass, a lot of floral character, light dish soap foam). medium-full body with high bitterness, a lot of hop alpha acids. moderate sweetness does little to balance the aggressive bitterness, but I prefer this to higher sweetness as the same bitterness. still it’s a bit too brash for my tastes, and the yeast seems to mute it all and wash out the hop flavor especially, but it also provides a softness to the body that helps. overall and fairly nice IPA -pale, not too sweet, mostly clean, and thankfully there’s little pine resin or oil orange hop character.

first taste was 3.5-level. second try is 2.6 (watery, pasty and a bit sour)
