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.

Capa (1987) - Manama, BAHRAIN - MAY 26, 2012
Lightly hazy orange. Light honey with solid bitterness. Good beer and not as honey forward as unthought it would be.

r464 (1916) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 6, 2012
Aroma is light, but has a bit of hops and honey. Sweet start building to a bitter finish. Caramel like malt, a touch of darker honey, then a floral hops end. Interesting, but not a standout.

Arayaga2 (1776) - portland, Oregon, USA - APR 6, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2013 Chestnut amber with speckled white head. Aroma if grapefruit is weak and carries into a weak watery taste. Englishy yeast character

Leafs93 (1668) - 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.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 22, 2009
Amber-gold with a nice floral, citrus hop aroma. Flavor is thick and chewey with hops - earth, flowers, citrus, and tobacco abound. Plenty of malt as well. Nice and chewy with a thick mouthfeel. Nice IPA.

NikkTwist (1589) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 28, 2012
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.

Nephilium (1347) - 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.

bth122 (1259) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2013
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.

Sampled during McCoole’s Spring Beer Fest in Quakertown, PA. Nice interpretation of the IPA. Well-balanced and very drinkable.
