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.

I have come to find that I really enjoy hopburst brewing technique, and this does not let me down. Tons of floral aroma and not a bitter finish!

Draft @ Old Chicago. Nice hoppy aroma. Color was clear, slight reddish golden color. Flavor had a nice malty backbone, with citrusy hops. Medium bodied. Very good IPA!

12 oz bottle purchased as a single at Beer Crazy in Urbandale, Iowa. The pour is a mostly clear golden orange with a one inch egg white head. The head falls with a thick coating of lace. The aroma is caramel malt and resin pine bitterness. The taste is the pine bitterness, mostly, along with a sharp grapefruit peel character to the back. The sweetness of the caramel in the nose is subdued, and decently integrated to the bitterness. The palate is medium bodied with low carbonation and the bitter finish. Some nice mineral is present in the aftertaste as the beer warms. Just OK.

Pours a hazy darker amber with off-white head. A little pine and citrus, and some malt on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with malt.

The first smell was ok. The beer didnt knock anything out of the infield. Aroma was nothing. Taste was malty and muted hops. Finish was overly bitter. Another sad Iowa ipa :( ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thanks to reeceg for this freebie in a trade!! Overall decent IPA from a brewery I had never tried. Nice hop aroma from the pour. Head disappeared quickly and left plenty of lacing. Went down very smooth with a perfect amount of bitterness. Nice notes of floral and citrus. I’d drink it again given the chance.

12/24/13. 12oz bottle from the Milan Hy Vee. Hazy amber pour with a small khaki head. Mild hop aroma, earthy and floral, more malty aspects, caramel, doughy. Malty flavor, caramel and biscuits, doughy, with mild hops, floral and sweet. Meh. Perhaps an old bottle.

Bottle shared by drowland at xmas, pours a hazy copper with a thin head, the aroma wasn’t really all that fresh, might have been an older bottle, the flavor was more sweet than anything with more malt and biscuit coming through than hops, a little bit of citrus shows right at the end, but again, might be an older bottle, there wasn’t a date on it to verify. Kind of meh.

Bottle shared thanks to Tim and Rachel! Pours a hazy golden brown with thin lacy off-white head. Aroma of slight citrus hop and light caramel. Taste follows, a little weaker, less caramel and more biscuit. Not the best, but admittedly old.
