COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We used a mix of Horizon, Columbus, and Cluster hops throughout, including dryhopping in the fermenter. Cluster is an old hop that was once the most widely used hop in American beer. It has a distinctive aroma and flavor - reminds me of English candy for some reason.

Picked up a couple sixers in TN dated 5/16/2012 so this was about a week old when I started drinking it. Looks just like all of the other Hop Projects, amber, clear, good head and lacing. Smell is nice, hoppy, fruity, good stuff. Taste has a hoppy flavor that seems more fruit than pine but not citrus. This was really well balanced and though I am usually quite biased towards West Coast style IPA’s. I would have bought a case if I had a way to get it all home.

Bottled June 11. Pours penny color with a thick tan head. The Columbus really shines in the aroma. Acetic and resinous hop flavor, finishes dry with a caramel finish.

Bottled June 12th... guessing this is the right one? Doesn’t say what number on the bottle... but others were bottled on June 11th? Great beer! I’m really enjoying this! Love the heavy pine and backing floral and citrus, great resin, nice light crystal malt profile, almost rye like but probably from the hops, very spicy, easy drinking, wonderful!

nearbeer (3841) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 18, 2012
12 oz. Bottled May 03, 2012. Clear shiny copper with a small, lasting ring of creamy foam. Resin, citrus and earthy toffee aromas. Flavor is the same mix with even more resin and toffee, and a nice woody touch on the bitter-dry finish. Near-medium body is sleek and balanced, with light-medium carbonation. Very nice session IPA.

NachlamSie (2809) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 3, 2012
6 pack from Kroger. Bottled on June 11, 2012. Pours copper with a fizzy white head. Aroma is sharp and hoppy with a more normal IPA profile than some Hop Projects of late. Some approachable citrus and dank green are noted. The flavor is a little heftier in the malt department, or perhaps the hops don’t cut through quite as much. Still a solid bitterness is present. Grapefruit up front with a more herbal finish. There is something almost earthy that I can’t put my finger on. Honestly, this is a good beer.

Bottled on June 11, 2012
Tasted on 7/23/12 from a 12oz bottle purchased at Whole Foods Green Hills. Pours a beautiful, bright copper orange with a thick, fluffy beige head that slowly recedes to rocky lace. The nose is vegetal bitter with a touch of candied yam, an herbal note, and some pine resin. The flavor is pretty much the same, the hop profile is quite distinct, with herbal pine resin, and candied yam malts. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long resin hop and candied yam finish.

Excellent hop and malt balance, weak flavor, very nice malt background and good malt finish

rstone27 (7) - Alabama, USA - AUG 21, 2012 does not count
On tap. Darker straw-amber color, slight haze, around 12 SRM. Off white head with medium rockiness, yet smooth. Light, unimpressive aroma, notes of pine, citrus, straw, grass. Taste is very well balanced, malty caramel, earthy notes on front end with a nice smooth citrusy, pine, grassy, woody hoppy finish. Not a tremendous bitter linger. Wonderful lacing. Good IPA.

decaturstevo (5213) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - SEP 8, 2012
Orange pour with foamy white head and lace. Aroma is large resiny hop dominated. Nice resiny hops with a hinto malt. Strong bitter finish that just continues to grow. Medium bodied with good carbonation. What a bitter.

pushkinwow (2098) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 2, 2012
Bottled on June 12. Amber with a nice slightly off white head. Overlay of caramel and slightly muted citrus with the grapefruit coming through towards the end of things, some pine, and a sweet maltiness. High carbonation, moderate body, becomes bitter and then a sweet grapefruit ending with a nice dryness.
