COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hopbursting is a relatively new brewing technique in which the vast majority of hops are added to the kettle late in the boil in order to achieve enhanced extraction of hop components (ie, Hopbursting gives you tons of hops flavor and aroma!) Our Hopburst IPA has a substantial malt base, balanced with huge additions of our unique hop blend. This creates an incredibly flavorful beer, with smooth bitterness and hoppy goodness.

Bottle from Johns. No date (AFAICT), hope itís this yearís. Copper with ring. Grassy leafy hop aroma with a little vegetal malt. Mild toasted caramel malt with minimal fruitness. Medium assertive citrus rind and woody hops finish. Fairly dry. Mild astringency. Medium body. Lively carbo. Pretty good.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Pours a deep hazy amber with a medium off white creamy head. Aroma of orange zest,caramel malt, nuts and a nice sweet hop profile. Flavor of tropical fruits, citrus zest, nice but not harsh hop bitterness. Nice and dry with some caramel and nutty notes to balance. Was expecting a caramel bomb but it wasnít! This bottle is at least 3 but probably more months old. Need to try a freshy.

cards04 (2509) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 7, 2013
A nice ipa. Pours a burnt orange with some nice lacing. Aromas of dank basement, piss, dirty socks, and sweet honey and citrus. Nice hoppy flavours. More pine driven Than anything else. A touch of water on the finish keeps this from having a higher rating.

BVery (8912) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JUN 2, 2013
