COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
LARRY was originally brewed this summer for the Publick House’s Hop Head Throwdown. David -- owner of the Publick House -- It was such a success in growlers here and at the Publick House, that we brewed another batch to go to speciality accounts. We’ll be putting it in 22’s in March 85 IBUs 5-hops (Simcoe, Magnum, Amarillo, Cascade, Chinook)

Leighton (11841) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2011
Bottle at 1st CBC Sunday Tasting. Pours a clear amber with a big, white head. Strong resinous pine aroma, some sweet toast, hints of grapefruit. Very sweet flavor, toasted bread, some brown sugar, pine, cake. Full bodied with average carbonation. Finishes mildly warm with oily resins, pine, sweet grapefruit and hints of melon. Very drinkable. I love it.

brokensail (11529) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 8, 2010
A: The pour is a slightly cloudy golden color with a fluffy white head and some nice lacing. S: Tons of grapefruit, lemon rind, and tropical fruit in the nose. Wonderfully hoppy with just a touch of sweetness and bready malt. T: The flavor is a nice mixture of sweetness (brown sugar?) and hop fruitiness and bitterness. The hops are very heavy on the grapefruit with a bit of pineapple and some nice pine on the finish. M: Medium in body with a moderate level of carbonation and a crisp finish. D: A really nice IIPA and one of the better east coast offerings for the style. I would be happy to have this one again.

Bomber from Half Time. Pours hazy light amber with a 1 finger creamy/bubbly near-white head. Lots of fruity hop over a slightly roasted malt backbone. Near full in body. Lots of sweet caramel with lots of fruity/floral hop. I’d say this one is toward sweet rather than dry, but it’s a close call. It’s bitter, but not the harsh NW bitter. So flavorful. They did not skimp on ingredients. It’s almost chewy.

Koelschtrinker (11042) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - SEP 1, 2011
Der hopfige Beginn ist dumpf und eher dunkel, weit weniger blumig als der Geruch vermuten lässt. Auch im weiteren Verlauf weniger hopfig als vermutet, stattdessen würzig herb, süßlich, im Zusammenspiel vollmundig. Das Gesamtaroma hält leider nur kurz und zerbircht im Abgang schnell, Fruchtig bittere Noten sind hier noch vorhanden, im Nachgeschmack trockene Grasigkeit. 8/10/11/9/7/9
