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.

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

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.

Nejhleader (1425) - Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 7, 2010
Seemed like your pretty standart IPA, not much of an aroma, a little hops. Taste was slightly bitter hoppy, maybe with a hint of honey.

raymow (1345) - 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?

ordybill (1234) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - DEC 12, 2015
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is brownish with a golden hue with a large white head (the beer is 5 months past its "best by" date). The flavor is pleasant Some sweet honey in the back with some tart hops up front.

katrinaez (1152) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 8, 2015
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

JFURYCAT (1079) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 11, 2012
Brown color with some honey in the aroma and dominating the palatte with a bitter edge which seems out of sync with the honey but this is a honey ipa so lets go with this. Once the beer warmed up i was able to appreciate the honey ipa mix more. Sweetness with a bitter edge sums it up for me with rather medium wet mouthfeel.

checkmatei1 (765) - Willow Grove, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 14, 2010
Draft: Poured a copper color with a thin head. The aroma was floral, pine, and citrus. The flavor was sweet malts, honey, touch of hops, and flowers. Overall, not bad.

odinstyr (714) - Howell, New Jersey, USA - MAY 12, 2013
Pours a clear copper-red with a foamy tan head. Smells of honey, citrus, spruce. Taste is sweet, moderately bitter - honey, floral notes, spruce.

Voodoo (537) - 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.
