COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A far cry from our original IPA, The Hitchhiker is a big floral/citrus American IPA. Aromas and flavors of pineapple, grapefruit, orange, and tangerines take center stage with a tad bit of caramel malt backbone to balance just a bit. A very dry finish with hops flavors lingering...this one is for the hopheads.

On tap at j Clyde. Pours Amber with a thick off white head. Some what if an onion patch, catty. Mosaic hops since they are on my brains. Moderate bitterness followed. Actually a decent ipa but fuck des mosaic hops. Srs. If not for dos this is high bro, like a kite.

On tap at World of Beer in Birmingham, AL. Poured amber with fruity aroma. Lightt hoppy, piney taste. Not bad, but nothing exceptional either.

jbrana (640) - NASHVILLE, Tennessee, USA - MAR 26, 2014
Strong citrus and pine flavors with a sweet and mellow malt body. Leaves a resinous piney bitter aftertaste that isn't great, but otherwise a really good IPA.

Malaclemys (421) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Tap at Good People Brewery. Poured amber with off white head. Strong citrus and resin aroma. Slight malt with a dominating citrus and slightly grassy (in a good way) hop flavor. Dry bitterness that left you wanting more. Wish it wasn’t just a seasonal.

Nero55 (919) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 29, 2013
Draft. Amber with a medium white head. Strong aroma of resin hops and caramel. Flavor of strong resin and citrus hops, with not much of a malt presence and a bitter finish.

Suttree (5766) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 24, 2013
Sampled at 2013 ENBF. Orange, clear, loose white head. Stoney, piney hop flavors dominate the aroma. Flavor is a bit of caramel and honey, mixed with big piney hop flavors. Nice sticky hop finish. Very tasty...

Gustav1996 (333) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - DEC 10, 2011
Had this several months ago on tap. Aroma: understated citrus, fruit, hops. Taste was the same... everything understated/mild. A good beer but not one I would look for.
