COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
“Can I scream….” for more hops? You sure can. Two row American barley jammed packed with as much Apollo, Newport, Simcoe, Topaz, and Citra hops we could get our hands on, The Shape of Hops to Come is an 8.5% ABV American-styled imperial IPA that’s got a ton of bitterness, along with juicy, dank resiny pine-like, and citrus forward hop character that is worthy of it’s name. Dry hopped for two weeks this hop bomb has as much hop power we can muster!

Can thanks to dmac. Orange pour with a small head. Nose has plenty of onion. Pine cone. Some orange marmalade. Fairly strong booziness. Drinks as big as the nose sugggests. Heavy, boozy structure. Sweet grain and orange syrup. Pine and onion on the finish. As an old school IIPA it’s pretty solid, actually. Not necessarily in my wheelhouse, however.

Can shared by Jack, thanks! Pours a clear yellow gold with a near white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of resin and pine with grapefruit and grains supporting. Flavor has a good amount of pine, bread and onion with some resin underlying.

Draft at OTB Bicycle Café in Pittsburgh, South Side Location. Pleasant and smooth, really packs a wallop and should be taken in small doses.

kyzr (1596) - Montana, USA - MAY 30, 2017
Pours clear copper with a medium sized off white head. Big nose of juicy hops, pine, grapefruit and orange. Taste of bitter, juicy hops, grapefruit, orange zest and pine. Big and hoppy is all I can say.

Love the bitterness. Would prefer a tiny bit more of the citra hop profile....still a top notch IPA.

From tap. Pours clear and golden orange with a small white head. Aroma is peaches and mild grapefruity. Crisp hops fruity. Mild bitterness, sweet and juicy fruity base. Lingering fruity and crisp hoppy finish.

Poured from a pounder can into a pint glass. Ever go on a beer tour and crush a whole hop flower, rub it in your palms, and then take a big whiff? Well, that’s the caliber of the nose; citrus and pine resins watered my mouth. Golden color with a thin, white head and modest lacing. Very smooth, hoppy, dank flavor, but not terribly harsh or boozy, which is surprising with the higher ABV. Look for this limited offering and enjoy the opening of spring. Cheers!
