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.

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.

onceblind (6172) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2011
Tap @ Liquids and Solids. Clear amber with a big off-tan head. Big fresh dank hop oil aroma, lots of earthy-toffee tones. Taste is very smooth and coating with a lasting finish. Big toffee and caramalt backbone, with a substancial fresh hop bitterness to balance, but very smooth. Beautifully balanced, sweet at first, but follows with resinous floral hops, fresh cut grass. Just delightful.
