COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The fabled Hop-a-lot-amus is a mythical creature. The heavy hop character of this Double IPA is as subtle as a "river horse" in your lap, but finishes like a hippo in a tutu. Enjoy! 93 IBUs

Bottle from Oak Tree. Pours copper amber with a foamy beige head. It’s so hoppy it smells like hippo crap. Med body;foamy carb. Flavor is roasty malt overwhelmed by a lot of hop. It’s very astringent, and seems like citrus and resin. GFS!! Trust me on that.
