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.

Nitro at lucky lab. Pours hazy reddish with a large off white head. The aroma has a lot of citrus notes, light pine, and maybe some honey in the distance. The taste is medium bitter and very malty. Not too sweet but does have a honey caramel taste and is quite thick in palate.. Good.

Nephilium (1511) - Ohio, USA - JUL 22, 2013
Mild honey aroma, pours a cloudy reddish-brown with a large off-white head. There’s a bit of honey in the flavor, with a lingering bitter finish. Medium bodied, not a bad little IPA.

EithCubes (5247) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Bottle. Nose is dank and earthy-herbal hops, pine-leaning with light malt and citrus, perhaps a touch of grain. Expecting it to be sweet. Dark chestnut with red highlights and a rocky tan head. Taste is strongly bitter, faint metal with some sour acid, though only a stroke. Juicy and citric but higher on resin and scratch, woody with floral and herbal notes that don’t manage to establish themselves until some time has passed. Fullish body, seems like lemon and orange juice have been squirted in at times (zing zing) but even they are covered by the strong dank resin and dark caramel.

pineypower (2754) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - MAY 26, 2013
Bottle from Canal’s. pours a dark copper color with a small white head. Aroma is of sweet honey, light cereal, some mild citrus hop and pine sap. Taste is interesting, lots of sweet, sticky honey blending with citrus bitterness that lingers on the finish. Like drinking liquid honey comb cereal garnished with hops. Definitely interesting.

Bottle; poured a copper color with a generous head. Aroma of honey, clove, maybe slight cinnimon. Some citrus hop flavors in taste. A unique twist on the IPA. Creamy texture.

keepersj12 (2945) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - APR 13, 2013
Kind of bland for me. Not a lot of aroma. What I got was a bit of citrus and some sweet malt. The flavor had a little too much sweetness for my liking.

NITRO Draft at Khyber Pass. Copper red pour with a huge pillowy head which left rings of lace. Mild malt. Even milder hops. Clover honey. Caramel floral. Dark honey brown ale. Despite the nitro, the body seems watery. Looks nice but was a disappointment.
