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!

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2017 Great IPA. One of the best you will ever have. I live near the brewery and always have this when I visit. They really knocked it out if the park with this one. It's an Imperial IPA you will love if you're an IPA person.

Out of a can poured into a glass. The hop aroma when the seal is popped let’s u know this hop bomb means business. It has a depth of hop flavor that is from start to finish with pine, citrus, resin. Mixed with a hint of Carmel and malt. overall its a great beer for ipa lovers and a great value in cans!

Draft at Whole Foods Plymouth. Turbid dark straw orangy color with off-white head. The nose was resiny hops, mango, pineapple, honeydew. Tasted very complex and very smooth, with notes of mango, honeydew, tangerine, piney hops, balanced malt, and some black pepper in the finish. This one was so good that I growlered it and would have gotten a sixtel if I was having a party this weekend. Get ya some!

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

UPDATED: DEC 22, 2015 10/28/14 on tap at Dog & Bull in Croydon - hoppy and somewhat sweet. ok but not great. I was surprised to see the high abv because you can’t really taste it in there. 12/19/15 on tap at Smoky Pint in Bridesburg - don’t know what the hell I was thinking last year - this is great stuff!

From a can . The pour is a orange gold with a white head. A lot of hop flavor with grapefruit , kiwi, tangerine, mango, piney. A great beer with a nod to a band I also really like to thebpoint where I pulled out my copy of The Shape of Punk to Come and listened to it while sipping on this beer.

Pours bright medium orange with a one finger off white head with pretty nice lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine, tropical fruits, dank hops, grassy hops,and herbal hops. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a pretty bitter, semi dry, long finish. Overall, a excellent DIPA that is the best beer I’ve had from neishaminy yet.

UPDATED: JUL 15, 2017 Imperial without overpowering. Great balance act hop varietals, body vs bitterness. Sort of an update west coast Double. Worth drinking more than once if if you are welcoming of the high ABB. Pair with crystalline cheddar like Cabot cloth bound.

Can in trade. Pours a orange color, white head. Lots of dank in the nose. Maybe some cotrus too. Taste is light, dry, very hoppy, resin, lots of hoppy aftertaste. Not enamel extracting, but good. Like this beer a lot.
