COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sticky Zipper is all about our passion for the hop. American 2-row, crystal and munich malts create a smooth and solid base for the hope to come. Prodigious amounts of late addition and dry hopping with cascade and falconer’s flight provide a balanced bitterness with huge hop aroma and flavor - with notes of citrus, pine, and lemon zest - all without the tooth-enamel-stripping bitterness found in other IPAs....Cheers!

crazycarla64 (1) - California, USA - MAR 30, 2015 does not count
Wish it said on the bottle it was a double IPA or had the IBU listed. Decent, but a bit hoppy for me

Fatehunter (1647) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Pours two fingers of head on a slightly hazy straw body. The aroma has lots of lemon and grapefruit but the mango and pineapple really shine through well. The taste initially sweet, then quickly turns to grapefruit bitterness, lots of it. The texture is softer with fizz. Great aroma. The taste is slightly unbalanced. Enjoyable though.

theisti (3475) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - JUN 9, 2014
Draft at Hopwater Distribution in San Francisco, California. The pour is mostly clear golden, faint orange with a smallish white head. The aroma is biscuit caramel malt, along with citrus floral hops. The taste is a blend of the softly sweet malt and the citrus floral hops, with bitterness in the back-end. The palate is light to medium bodied with active carbonation and a slightly dirty bitter finish. Decent enough.
