Medium bodied with bite, fine carbonation, dry grassy finish with a good dose of hop bitterness. Decent DIPA.

hopscotch (9517) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 15, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2010 (Rating #5500) Bottle… Hazy amber ale with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. Good retention. The aroma is a bit grainy, but also provides notes of caramel and toffee. Full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and lively carbonation. The flavor is bursting-at-the-seams with juicy, earthy, hop bitterness. The lengthy finish is bitter, astringent, and then dries out.
