COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We admit it. We have a problem... We love our hops. We especially adore the amazing science of hops! As homage to our favourite wonders of nature, we present to you our award-winning Headstock IPA. The flowering humulus lupulus hop-cone provides us with the vital acids, essential oils and resins that permeate throughout our IPA. The result is a deliciously obscene wallop of tropical fruit, citrus and pine flavours and aromas any hop-head would gladly give a DNA sample for. We conclude that hop science is one tasty passion.

Doesn’t bring anything new to the table but it’s so well-crafted I would say it’s one of the best IPAs I’ve tried. Being in a pint format for more or less the same price you usually find most 33ml cans is also a big thumbs up

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2017 Lata 50 cl en el kraken 31..03..2017. (r232). Embotellado 16..01..2017 Sin lote en base de lata. Color amarillento anaranjado turbio con espuma blanca. Aromas frescos afrutados algo florales y herbaceos ligeramente resinosos. Sabores frescos maltosos dulces con buenas dosis de afrutados tropicales. Piña, mango, melocotón... Suaves herbaceos y ligeramente resinoso s el final que dejan buen amargo duradero. Cuerpo medio algo pastoso y con espuma fácil de beber. Bastante buena con bastante sabor. Para repetir sin duda.

Draft at RnHw. Pours a golden body with thin white lacing. Nose is pine, resin and malt. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a bit more fruity notes coming through on the palate; flavors of peach, ash and sweet malt. This was a bit better than their "Naughty Neighbour" offering, but wouldn’t be surprised if both were much better closer to the source.

DanDan_ (83) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 22, 2017
Can (Jan 23, 2017): Dark hazy orange, finger of white head. Dank resiny hops, pine, orange/grapefruit peel, floral, caramel malt. Sweet fruitiness on the front followed by a medium sticky bitter/dry finish. Medium body, nice fine carbonation. Overall: good rich IPA, I just never seem to reach for it. Maybe it’s a bit cloyingly bitter for its body, or maybe just old can was cooler.

kaserov (986) - Oviedo, SPAIN - MAR 19, 2017
Color dorado, turbio, con capa de espuma de un blanco puro de dos dedos de grosor (retención decente). Carbonatación media. Textura de zumo. Aroma cítrico, tropical, con presencia de resina, y maltoso si se agita (indudablemente disfrutable pero, me pregunto, si huele tan tan suave y está enlatada dos meses atrás, ¿cómo huele cuando lleva enlatada seis meses?). En boca es cítrica, menos tropical, resinosa, herbal, con amargor final mínimo que continúa en postgusto pero de una manera muy sutil. Rica, no muy amarga y deja poca impresión en el paladar, pero es una IPA más que sólida y reseñable.

3.8
Bawelt (874) - Lyon, FRANCE - MAR 17, 2017
Nez : ultra florale, un tout petit peu agrumes, des notes très vertes (un peu artichaut). Bouche très aromatique : très agrumes et florale pour le coup avec de très grosses notes résineuses.
