COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Saugatuck Brewing Co. and Binny’s Beverage Depot met like many friends do, over beer. We discussed the different aspects of what we enjoy, and together, we created something beautiful. Brewed for and by Binny’s, we took SBC’s Pathfinder Pale Ale and added a boatload of hops to it, such as Citra, Simcoe, and Nelson Sauvin, plus dry hopped with very rare Mosaic hops. Ladies and gentleman I give you "Hopfinder".

Tasted from a bomber. It poured with super carbonation that fluffed up the bubbly head like no beer I’ve ever had. Split the bomber between 3 glasses, and each looked and tasted a bit different. Aroma is mostly citrus and hops, but again, each of the three pourings from the same bottle was slightly different. Tough to rate a beer that is inconsistent from within the same bottle.

Stupid amount of carbonation, but no explosion at all, just an eight centimetre tall white microfoamed head atop a clear golden and honey coloured body. Aroma of light hops, alcohol, metal, cardboard, apples and very little else - mild. Medium-bodied; Assertive effervescence with a hint of apples, cardboard, malt, metal and the slightest bit of hops. Aftertaste shows almost nothing different with perhaps some medicinal flavours and that’s about it. Overall, a pretty poor offering and despite it being an interesting choice at the store, I wish I would have got something different to bring home from Chicago. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Binny’s (no way/sarcasm) in Chicago (South Loop), Illinois on 21-August-2013 for US$7.99 sampled at home in Washington on 22-March-2014, but if I did this again, I wouldn’t have purchased this at all, especially not for that price.

Had it out of a bomber from Binny’s. Pours a hazy amber, with all kind shit floating around in the beer, but thats ok. It poured with a lot of head ( that’s what she said ), It has a very tangy hop citrus flavor with a nose to match.

650ml bottle. Smell is light and citrusy. The flavor is great as it warms. By the end it develops a super juicy tropical fruitiness.
