COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bitto Honey IPA was born as a gift to be enjoyed at a going away party for two friends, Don and Maddie Bitto - two new doctors from Philadelphia who were headed to Denver for their first jobs as practicing physicians. Bitto Honey is a twist on the ever popular India Pale Ale and has been brewed with fresh honey and a heavy dose of honey malt to provide great balance to the Amarillo and Cascade hops. We believe that Hops + Honey = Heaven. Don and Maddie agreed and we hope you will too.

Aroma floral, spruce, citrus, Appearance brown, red, hazy, cloudy, frothy, tan foam, white foam, Taste light sweetness, lightly bitter, Palate light body, lively, Overall not a great I.P.A. but I would suggest this beer to a friend that is easing into I.P.A.s because it is not overly hoppy

UPDATED: APR 5, 2015 Pretty good ipa. The slight honey sweet slowly peeks out. You can smell it as well. Hops are light. Not overly dimensional. Tap

raymow (1040) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 8, 2015
bottled - nice sweet aroma. Great reddish amber color. Major head on pour. Taste seemed a bit off - not sweet at all. Old bottle maybe?

nuplastikk (5071) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 28, 2015
12oz bottle. Hazy amber body with lots of floaties enough to bring it down to a 2 in appearance. Steady, creamy off-white head. Doesnít smell that appealing, kind of a 90s brewpub APA thing going, earthy. The concept is cool, but the end result is not so impressive. The hops are more dominating than the honey, which plays second fiddle here.

rentonj7 (88) - Bridgeport, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 9, 2014
From bottle, deep ruby amber color with almost no head. Aroma is almost all honey. Taste is very sweet with light bittering. Long finish with alternating sweet/bitter - interesting. Full bodied with oily texture. Almost no carbonation, but I donít think it needs it. Not what Iíd usually go for, but Iím impressed.

Lightrider (317) - Bristol, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2013
Bottle into an ale glass. Pour is a dark amber with a lace head. Aroma is on the weak side. Taste is a very bitter pull, not a smoothly built beer. Finish is harsh, not what I would have looked for in an ipa. But better then most mass made swill.

Voodoo (433) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 19, 2013
Pours a hazy brown with large yeast particles in suspension. Aroma of sweet malt. Taste is sweet up front with a medium mouthfeel, and noticeable earthy hop taste tailing into maltiness and ending with a slightly rough astringency and little bitterness. Very odd IPA as hops are a small part of the show.

Strykzone (5534) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - NOV 15, 2013
12 ounce bottle from a trade with jdb288. This is quite hazy and dark brown. Cool looking. A big darker beige head has good retention. I smell honey and clover with rich malts. No hops on the nose. The hops are tasted and they are classic west coast hops with a nice grapefruit profile. There is a bit of herbal and pine but the hops are generally citrus. This has a little something different and is a tasty IPA.

Tnkweiss (2) - USA - NOV 11, 2013 does not count
Bottled. Pours hazy amber with thin head. Overall drinkable beer, the honey is subdued, but so is the IPA taste.
