A freshly bitter and bright ale that sticks out in the right places. Bottle from the brewpub pours a bright orange-amber. Nose has plenty of citrussy and floral hops, really nice. Tastes quite bitter but fresh and balanced with a lightly sweet center. This brewery’s seasonals and experiments are impressing me more every year. Happy to have this as my rating #400...

Yes, it’s called "Hop Lobster". Apparently, they wanted to play with the recipe for "Hop Monster" until they realized it was not the same beer at all, thus, the Lobster. Pours big and orange, great lacing. Aroma is big fruity hops, with a sweet caramel, woody undertone. Flavor is giant bitter hops, and slight sweetness from the malts, though not nearly enough of a malty profile to undercut the slightly over-exagerated hops. The palate may be the best aspect of this beer, best defined as "chewy" (think think, creamy, and filling). Great name, good beer.
