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.

had on-tap at the Tex-Mex. Nice to see restaurant supporting local breweries. appears a darker copper amber color, with nice white head. The cap of head covers the beer until the very end. aroma is pretty sweet, dominated by the honey. Taste follows similarly, with a fairly sweet flavors of malt and honey. The hops are subtle. Mouthfeel is very smooth, with lower carbonation that definitely works.

Leafs93 (1900) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 1, 2011
Pours dark amber and has aroma of florals, caramel and honey. Taste is sweet with a honey aftertaste. For some reason this beer left a terrible aftertaste, almost funky but in a bad way.

chronictonic (473) - Oreland, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 24, 2011
on tap at Fatty’s - This is a confusing beer, and my review is based on it’s style (IPA). Dark amber pour with a small to medium white head. Aroma is mild - some malty sweetness. Flavor is mellow and smooth, slightly sweet and finishes with a lingering, albeit mild, hop bitterness. I think it would have scored a lot higher if it had been marketed as an Amber Ale though. When I see IPA, I know what I want - and this is not it. However, that’s not to say it’s a mediocre beer. Under certain circumstances I could definitely drink one of these. I can’t help but wonder if it hurts their sales calling it an IPA instead of an Amber. I can see that someone who decidedly doesn’t like IPAs or bitter beers might avoid this outright, but if it was labeled as an Amber they might try it.

Pours a dark copper color with a very thin white head. Aroma of hops, caramel, and pine. Bitter hop flavor dominates with a touch of caramel and honey. Decent beer.

Scouser (304) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2010
Pours a nice copper colour with creamy lacing. Really nice floral aroma, violets, rose hips. Was kind of lacking in taste for me. Malty at the front with a little hop kick on the backend. Love the aroma, not a bad beer.
