COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A far cry from our original IPA, The Hitchhiker is a big floral/citrus American IPA. Aromas and flavors of pineapple, grapefruit, orange, and tangerines take center stage with a tad bit of caramel malt backbone to balance just a bit. A very dry finish with hops flavors lingering...this one is for the hopheads.

On tap at Cosmos.... love this joint. Aroma of fresh pine. Nice golden color. Semi sweet malt up front. Thick pine flavors. Bitterness if firm but cuts in on a nice pace. Finish is fresh pine, bitterness and some alcohol burn.

Solid big hoppy IPA, a fun trip through the IBU wilderness. Aroma gives up massive chunks of grapefruit and tangerine and pine, and the pour is nice as well, slightly hazed amber-gold underneath a fluffy pillow of foam and modest lacing. Taste hits first with a semisweet citrus salad hop burst, tangerine and grapefruit marmalade slathered on bread, caramel undertones adding a necessary sweetness. Pine pops up in the middle, and the finish begins a prolonged IBU attack, clingy and resinous, floral hops melding with herb and a dry-as-a-bone bitter fade. Thick, juicy mouthfeel adds to the sticky, persistent hoppy back end. Very good bitter bomb.

Can. Pours somewhat hazy amber with a thick, frothy eggshell head. Aroma features resiny hops, rather strong, riding a note of tart citrus. Bold flavor delivers a strong resiny and bitter hop tone that has woody and tart orange notes in supporting roles. Mouthfeel presents good body, nice fizz, and a resiny finish. Pick up this hitchhiker! Come to think of it, though Ive made several long road trips in the past couple years - one from Atlanta to San Diego, and back - Ive seen only one or two hitchhikers. Looks as though they are going extinct.
