COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
American Brewers have re-defined this traditional English Ale with an intense bitterness derived from the distinct citrus/pine character of Pacific Northwest hops. A dry, crisp malt character and aggressive alcohol make our I.P.A. a Hop-Heads Passion. 16.5°

Can. Pours with a very mild hazed golden body with a small white head. Aromas are fruity, hoppy, citrusy, grassy, tangerine and oddly enough: a distinct raw celery note. Flavors are vegital, grassy, DMS, light cardboard (possibly hot side aeration type of thing or stale 2 row). Lively carbonation, dry, not particularly enjoyable.

July 1st Sunday. Can reads that this thing is close to two months old. Wow - would love to try this thing fresh. Great smell of tropical fruits, mango and citrus. Taste was quite as potent but still nice tropical, even keel malts, citrus.

Can - Light orange with a small head. The first thing I noticed was the bready taste of crackers (in a saltine sort of way). Has a piney hop backbone and pretty dry.

7/9/2014.12 oz. can. Clear amber color with a white head. Citrus, pine, grapefruit aromas. Bitter right off with lots of grapefruit and hops on the finish. Nice and dry all the way.

Pleasantly suprised by this one and thanks to Britt for opening it at the end of a pretty decent tasting session. Tropical hop aroma profile wafts a ways past the glass. Nice and fresh seeming even though the can says it is a month old. Great aroma that comes through pretty well in the flavor as well. Clear orange color. Really nice.

Was surprised to this rolled out in Houston. Snagged a sixer of cans. Didn’t expect much. Poured it, checked the date on the can, over a month old. Expected even less. Took a sip. WOWZA. Pours clear copper. A clean, strong dose of resin with a lighter body and notes of apricot or mango. Not much citrus in this one, but it’s near perfect for a single IPA in my opinion. Up there with Sculpin. After drinking most of the six pack over the past couple of nights my opinion remains the same. This is a great offering and will immediately replace my previous go-to from local brewery Karbach, who recently changed their Hopadillo recipe to make a darker more malty IPA for who knows what reason. Bye bye Hopadillo, hello Hop Shock!!

Talk about balance, drinkability and punch, this one has it all. From the copper haze to the white lace the floral hoppy nose leads to a floral malty flavor with a hint of bitterness. Perfect!
