COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This IPA pushes the boundaries (BJCP American IPA top-7.5% ABV/70 IBU) and delivers what you would expect. This aggressively hoped IPA awakens the senses with aromas of citrus, fruit, and pine but will bombard your taste buds (with hops, a subtle malt sweetness and notes of caramel) that will put a smile on your face. Available for a limited time on draft.

Formerly known as Hop Prop IPA.

DrSilverworm (8696) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 16, 2014
12oz bottle, purchased from Brennanís in Madison during my stay for GTMW. Pours a mostly hazy darker orange color. Thin off-white head, leaving decent bits of lace. Good bigger piney hop, some orange citrus, resin. Light caramel malt. Moderate to bigger bitter taste. Lighter sweet. Medium plus body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. Solid IPA. Day was dragging on a bit, this certainly woke my senses up a little, as advertised.

Pour on tap at the brewery, clear orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of orange, pine, grass into a bit of grapefruit, slight biscuit, bread, some slight spice. Taste was a mix of orange, grapefruit, pine into a bit of yeast, slight earth into a bit of biscuit, some bread into a bit of spice, finishing slightly bitter.
