COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bitto Honey IPA was born as a gift to be enjoyed at a going away party for two friends, Don and Maddie Bitto - two new doctors from Philadelphia who were headed to Denver for their first jobs as practicing physicians. Bitto Honey is a twist on the ever popular India Pale Ale and has been brewed with fresh honey and a heavy dose of honey malt to provide great balance to the Amarillo and Cascade hops. We believe that Hops + Honey = Heaven. Don and Maddie agreed and we hope you will too.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is brownish with a golden hue with a large white head (the beer is 5 months past its "best by" date). The flavor is pleasant Some sweet honey in the back with some tart hops up front.

bottled - nice sweet aroma. Great reddish amber color. Major head on pour. Taste seemed a bit off - not sweet at all. Old bottle maybe?

Amber-gold with a nice floral, citrus hop aroma. Flavor is thick and chewey with hops - earth, flowers, citrus, and tobacco abound. Plenty of malt as well. Nice and chewy with a thick mouthfeel. Nice IPA.

Sampled during McCoole’s Spring Beer Fest in Quakertown, PA. Nice interpretation of the IPA. Well-balanced and very drinkable.

Bottle; poured a copper color with a generous head. Aroma of honey, clove, maybe slight cinnimon. Some citrus hop flavors in taste. A unique twist on the IPA. Creamy texture.

Nejhleader (1561) - Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 7, 2010
Seemed like your pretty standart IPA, not much of an aroma, a little hops. Taste was slightly bitter hoppy, maybe with a hint of honey.

Aroma - electrical aroma - rest is hard to decipher. Appearance - the body is a hazy amber, with a beige head well over 2+". Good lacing. Taste - has an unpleasant almost electric taste. There is an sharp hop that is not enjoyable. Not very good mix. Palate - medium body, oily feel, average carbonation, somewhat bitter finish.

Brown color with some honey in the aroma and dominating the palatte with a bitter edge which seems out of sync with the honey but this is a honey ipa so lets go with this. Once the beer warmed up i was able to appreciate the honey ipa mix more. Sweetness with a bitter edge sums it up for me with rather medium wet mouthfeel.

odinstyr (797) - Hamilton, New Jersey, USA - MAY 12, 2013
Pours a clear copper-red with a foamy tan head. Smells of honey, citrus, spruce. Taste is sweet, moderately bitter - honey, floral notes, spruce.

Draft: Poured a copper color with a thin head. The aroma was floral, pine, and citrus. The flavor was sweet malts, honey, touch of hops, and flowers. Overall, not bad.
