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.

fidelis83 (2000) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - MAR 21, 2013
Lightly hazy, clear, dirty copper pour with a 2 finger, creamy, off white head that has great retention and leaves great lacing. Aroma of big citrus and pine, raw acidic hop bite, hints of biscuit and caramel, but mostly big citrus hops. The flavor has a bit more malt presence, toast, biscuit, caramel and a bit of barley sweetness up front, then the hops roll in, big citrus and planty pine sprouts, acidic hop twang and some earthy, spicy and herbal notes. Medium body with an acidic feel on the palate and teeth, moderate carbonation. Pretty freaking good overall, definitely a good dose of hops for the money. Drinks like a highly hopped IIPA, but a little lacking in the brighter citrus/fruity hop notes.
