Brewed with the musical winners of our Beer Camp contest, Hopsichord hits all the right notes. This reddish-amber IPA works its way up the scale of hop flavors and aromas, featuring tones of tropical fruit, light pine and citrus zest. This symphony of hops is balanced by a robust malt body that blends the bright hoppy highlights with a long, smooth, and bittersweet finish.

tap @ RnH - packed with hop resins, plenty of sweet grainy notes, bready and touch of yeast. Big boozey finish and almost gaggingly sweet. Not my style.

On tap @ Rattle N Hum. Clear amber with some off white head, nice lacing. Intense hop aroma with some pine and herbal notes, along with some citrus and a hint of mint. Medium bodied, fairly bitter with a hint of sweetness. Bitter hoppy finish.

Tap at Rattle n Hum. Poured a rich dark amber. Piny grapefruit nose. FlAvor follows the nose. Big big hopped double ipa. Nicely flavored and well balanced. Lots of bitterness in the finish, but smooth with a hint of sweetness.

Tap at RnH. Deep orange pour. Nose is surprisingly sweet for these guys... smells more like 90 minute than a Sierra beer. Grapefruit and wheat. Sweet, lip-smacking body--not in a good way. Gummy sugary candied citrus fruits. A disappointment.
