Brewed in conjunction with CBH regular, Pat Sulivan, this india red ale packs 90 ibu’s of hop fury! Simcoe, Amarillo, Summit and Cascade work together to create a sticky grapefruit/pine bitterness that’ll scrape the back of your tongue. Locally sourced malts from Valley Malts do their best to hold up the hops. This hop nectar is for serious hop heads only. Hopped like a double, drinks like a single.

Draught in Granby: This one pours a hazy, orangish amber color. There was a small off-white head that left lots of lacing. There is a very big and good hop nose. Lots & lots of pine, citrus and grapefruit. The taste is hops, hops & more hops. Not overly bitter, but lots of pine, grapefruit and citrus hop flavors. There is a good malt body, but they are pretty well hidden. Very smooth. A nice brew!
