COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An intensely hoppy hand-crafted American IPA!! We chucked 6 hop varieties in the boiling kettle and 2 pounds per barrel in the fermenter as a “dry hop” infusion to express our passion for hops!! An intense bouquet of fresh hops will greet you on the nose followed by the bursting tropical, citrus flavors on your palette. We love hops and we hope you do too!

HonkeyBra (3287) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - MAY 29, 2014
On draft at the brewpub. Pours an orangish amber with a medium white head. Aroma is floral, with apparent citrus notes. Flavor is moderately bitter with fruit undertones. Mild sweetness from the malt. Palate is a bit bigger than I’d expect with average carbonation. Finishes with moderate bitterness. Overall, somewhat of a simple but above average brewpub IPA.

On tap at Bronx Bar. Pours a light amber with a lot of head. Decent hop taste, smooth. Nothing earth shattering but nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Scent of honey and pollen, nice bright citrus hops. Average carbonation, viscous oily mouthfeel, clean slightly tongly/effervescent mouthfeel. Lots of polleny hops, honey and pine hop flavor. This is a really great tasting IPA, tastes a lot bigger than what it is and has similarities to three Floyd’s brews.

Tap sample. Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate lemon citrus and malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

An intensely yet not overpowering hoppy handcrafted American IPA! 6 hop varieties boldly infused throughout the brewing process expresses our passion for hops. An intense bouquet of fresh hops will greet you on the nose followed by the bursting tropical, citrus flavors on your palette.
