COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
To admit that the brewer at Half Pints is a bit of a hophead is an understatement. This India Pale Ale is unabashedly hoppy, not only from the Amarillo hops we add to the brew kettle, but also from the northwest U.S. variety called Cascade that we add directly to the final tank. A firm toasted malt presence forms the background for all of these hops, and we're confident our Little Scrapper IPA could take other so-called IPA's to the mat if called upon to do so. Try it with a curry or a basket of beer battered fish & chips. Serve in a glass at 8 degrees celcius. Unpasturized.

Modest head and lighter lager body with a bit of decent fogginess. Aroma of hops with plenty of bread. Flavour is nice dry hops with a sour finish. A good, balanced IPA with a hint of complexity.

[ Bottle ][ 1oz ][ Tasting ][ ][ Snifter ][ 11.09.14 ]
Hazy gold, thin wispy white collar. Light honey grapefruit nose, highly dusty, bitterness heavy with low sweetness. Stinging honey flavor, orange up front considerable pine mid, tons of fruit sweetness, low booze and decent carbonation to support. Stinging papery end, booze finally showing. Meh.

Bottle shared by Iphonephan at the DC Pre-Thanksgiving tasting. Thanks! Poured a clear golden color with a small fizzy head. Aroma was some earthy notes, some light bitterness. Flavor was a light earth notes. Maybe not fresh so the hops have mellowed out?

Pours light copper with a thick but short lived white head. Floral and citrusy aroma advertise the burst of hoppy bitterness at the first sip. The flavour is well orchestrated but the aftertaste lingers into astringent instead of the citrus I expected. The aftertaste mellows as the beer warms up, but surprisingly a good deal of its flavour also fades.

I love the combination of citrus and bitter flavours in this beer! With a nice zippy level of carbonation this is a great refreshing beer for a hot day, and I could see it pairing well with grilled seafood, or perhaps lime tortilla chips and fresh guacamole.
