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.

On tap at Broadway Pizza Robbinsdale. Golden in color with small white head. Not much carbonation. Full hop aroma. Good blend of hops and malt. Not overly bitter, despite the strong hop aroma.

kramer (5800) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 22, 2015
Can. Pours a slightly hazy copper body with a small wispy white head. The nose is more caramel and crystal malt than hops, it smells quite sweet. The hops that make it past are citrusy with a bit of pine. The flavor is much like the aroma suggested, rather minimal bitterness, lightly citrusy, plenty of caramel and brown sugar like maltiness. Light lingering piney hops. Medium bodied, a little clingy, with soft fizzy carbonation. Meh, decent, but I’d prefer it a lot drier.
