COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
HGH (Home Grown Hops) is an 8% ABV and 70 IBU Strong Ale juiced with hops locally grown at Oskar Blues Hops & Heifers Farm. Our home grown, high-potency, home run hitter is dry-hopped with Amarillo hops and then finished with a dose of Nugget and Centennial dry hopping. This farm raised strong ale injects more HGH than the 1998 home run race.

On draft at the brass tap, pours a amber orange color with aromas of hops, pine, fruit, and resine. Taste is a mashup of the aroma, ok overall, left a bitter aftetaste on the palate.

Draft. Pours dark gold, small white head, some retention/lace. Aroma of rich grapefruit, resin, piney hops, caramel malt. Taste is extremely dank marijuana, grapefruit, melon. Moderate/high bitterness balanced with a nice malt sweetness. Palate is oily, average carbonation, bitter grapefruit finish. Very nice.

Tap at Pony by myself lolol. Pours a medium, glassy amber with a pretty big off-white creamy head (about half bubbles and have solid froth). Leaves patchy, streaky lacing. Smell is medicinal and fruity hops. Palate is refreshing and delicious: grapefruit, hard butterscotch candy and then hop bitterness on the way down. Somewhat long legs. I really like it.

arminjewell (5993) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 25, 2011
Pour is hazy reddish orange with thick white head on tap, aroma brought notes of dank hops, with pine, orange and tangerine coming through mostly, hints of crackery bread and biscuit in there as well to balance it out. Palate is fairly creamy which is a bit odd, but nice notes of oily orange and tangerine mix with pine and bitter grass, some slight toffee and caramel notes, finishing fairly bitter. Nicely done brew.

hophead21112 (218) - Louisville, Colorado, USA - NOV 20, 2011
Hazy orange-red pour. Off-white head that recedes very slowly. Aroma of caramel, tropical fruit, slightly floral, nice sweet/bitter balance on the nose. Medium full body, moderately-low carbonation, there’s a cotton candy flavor that comes through that wasn’t in the aroma, low alcohol warmth, kinda one dimensional on the palate. Pretty good one.
