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.

arminjewell (5718) - 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.

onceblind (3673) - 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.
