This Ale is brewed with the best of Old and New World hops. Then we infuse the aging tanks with a dry hop addition of Cascade and East Kent Goldings to bring home the hops! Expect this Ale to pour a glass brimming with rich caramel flavors along with an intense hop aroma

This is a great beer but it is not quit an IPA. Naming it IPA is hurting it. I was hoping for more citrus. If you don’t like IPA’s for their "citrusness" try this beer. I would buy this again because its a great ale not a great IPA.

12oz bottle. Rating #570. Dark amber/copper pour with a white head. Mild aroma, very light pine and a little sweet. Mild bitterness, sweet citrus with a little pine. Not bad. (2295)

Style et résumé: IPA hybride (anglo-américaine) aux houblons EKG et Cascade.
Comment: Bouteille de 12oz. merci Patrick.
Description: IPA cuivrée avec une belle mousse beige durable. Le nez est classique avec du caramel, des houblons herbeux et une touche fruitée provenant de la levure. En bouche cette bière est digeste, liquide, mince, facile à boire. Elle manque de corps.
Note: 6/10

Poured a clear amber orange, with a one-finger off white head. Smells of faint grapefruit, citrus, and a touch of caramel. Taste is very smooth and well-balanced with a light bitter finish. Highly drinkable, but just a mediocre IPA.

Une deuxième New Glarus pour moi. Cette fois-ci, la Hearty Hop en bouteille de 12 onces. À l’œil, une robe à la couleur orangée bien limpide sur laquelle flotte une petite tête mousseuse qui ne résiste pas. Au nez, l’amalgame classique des houblons américains et anglais. Des notes florales et un souffle de la pinède. Un fruité plutôt discret qui s’affirme en pamplemousse. Une base maltée qui apparaît de belle façon. Un caramel bien intégré. Au goût, des saveurs de fleurs épicées et de résine. Un signe plus ou moins éloquent des agrumes et des malts qui trébuchent en cours de route. En bouche, un pétillement assez soutenu qui semble déranger la densité du liquide. Donc, un corps plutôt mince qui présente une texture plutôt mince. Une finale dans laquelle la résine apparaît de façon conviviale, sans grande intensité ni grande étendue. Un gros merci à Martin pour cette échange.

Pours a clear caramel color with a medium tan head. Aroma has some piney notes and a hint of spicy grapefruit...earthy with faint sweet malty notes. Flavor is slightly nutty and almost has a chocolatey malt note...earthy/spicy hoppiness...tastes more like an ESB. Mouthfeel is a bit light and thin and the finish has roasty malt and good bitterness. A bit boring as an IPA for my tastes.

Bottle through great generosity! Pour has a bright amber color and a thin covering of white fizzy head. Aroma has citrus rind, caramel malt, mild sweetness, and nice dry hops. Mouth feel is light and the carbonation is not too strong. Flavor has more bitterness, some pines, enough malt to keep it balanced, and a finish that goes for dry. Quite enjoyed this and even though it is not a kick in the teeth it has nice hop combinations.

Hops hops hops. If you like hops, this is amazing, if you don’t, pass. Great color, but since I’m not a hop head, I will pass from now on.

Bottle at home, brought back from Casanova’s in Wisconsin. Pours clear orange, thin off-white head, fine lacing. Nose is spicy juniper and nettle, with a hint of tea, stonefruit, miscellaneous citrus, and some toasty caramel further down. Flavours of big caramel, with spicy, tingly hops all down the sides of my tongue. Really nice grass, light citrus, and grapefruit syrup flavours, with an overall spicy, tea-like impression. Very different from what I was expecting, but thoroughly pleasant.

Good feel, nice, ample carbonation. Aftertaste lingers for a little bit, hop oils coating the mouth nicely.best ipa I’ve tasted yet
