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.

Cartoonkhaki (1275) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 23, 2016
Golden cloudy body with off white head. Sweet hop aroma with light citrus hints. The lingering bitters that drape the sides of my tongue are pleasant. Great body. A great general IPA to get in the southern Ontario region.

Moebbels (792) - FINLAND - OCT 22, 2016
A textbook example of the looks of an IPA with a mildly hazy body and a creamy, well enduring white head. Nose has notes of apricots, resin, caramel and citrus fruits. Taste is mildly sweet with a nice, lingering bitterness on the aftertaste. Medium creamy carbonation and rich palate. Nice and balanced heavier IPA.

Tasting with Ilya. 473ml bottle (thx, Peter!). Aroma is slightly sweet, with tropical fruits and some piney hops. Taste is piney bitterness. Same aftertaste. Good one.

Pours a translucent gold, head stays for duration of drink. Bright aroma of pine, tropical fruit. Taste of mango, peach, toasty malts, slight earth, and BIG hop bitterness; impressively, the bitter bomb doesn’t disrupt the sweet backbone. While I find the Naughty Neighbour slightly more approachable, this is also an impressive brew.

Pours dark copper with a foamy white head that laces the glass. Aroma is citrus hops, grapefruit and tropical fruit. Good bitter sweet taste with a dry finish. These guys know what they’re doing, really enjoyable.

Can into glass. Very nice aroma that seems sweeter than other IPAs. Pours a very cloudy amber. Medium to heavy bitter. Medium bodied with a sticky texture. An interesting IPA that is definitely on the hoppy side.
