COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Its official after a few months of working out the perfect flavor profile Tim down at Strange Brewery has handed over to us our first keg of Hops & Pie PA! Brewed to let the hops shine, Hops & Pie PA starts with Maris Otter to form the malty base that holds up to all the hops. Multiple hop additions showcase Simcoes piney, spicy, citrus character and Cascades resiny, floral aromas. Dry-hopped to further enhance the floral, spicy aromas, Hops & Pie PA is a drinkable, delicious pint of hop indulgence. OG 1.066 ABV 6.6% IBUs 64 We are offering Hops & Pie PA just as Strange brewed it or passed through Hoptymus Prime, our in-line fresh hopper. Custom built for H&P by Buck over at Thirstay (the best tap guy in the state!!), our in-line fresh hopper is filled with fresh Cascade hops that the IPA passes through on the way out the draft faucet giving an additional punch and fresh flavor!

On tap @ Hops and Pie. Really not as hoppy as the description states. Clear amber color with a thin lacing head. Aroma is leafy and herbal with a gentle hop bite. Taste is smooth, balanced, and sweet with a strong toffee malt backbone throughout. Leafy and lemony hop tones shine through in the middle, with some floral complexities behind it. Smooth and nuanced, with a bigger dose of toffee than Im used to in IPAs and I love it!

Nose of grass and tart strawberries with a little nectarine. Dry mouth with a resin back. The back taste doesnt linger like some more Lupulin-y beers. A good go to American IPA.

Poured a clear amber color with a small amber head. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine and light malt. On the palate, this one was medium bodied and smooth with flavors of malt and citrus (mostly grapefruit) with a somewhat bitter finish.
