On tap in a pint glass: Pours a clear golden amber with a thin white head. Aroma of bread, citrus, and resin. Taste is bitter up front, sweet at the end, but with lots of hop flavor throughout. Medium body, medium carbonation. A little too sweet for my liking. Decent IPA but not their best. Thorpe429 (5035) - , Illinois, USA - NOV 30, 2010
Growler courtesy of woosterbill--thanks for this one!
A: Pours a bright, light copper with a good head, especially considering that I’ve had this growler for about a week now. Absolutely beautiful lacing as it makes its way down, filling the entire glass.
S: Very fresh earthy and floral hops. You can almost smell the bitterness. Quite an explosion. There’s nothing else to it, and I am absolutely not complaining.
T: Herbal, earthy, and floral hops by the ton. Quite bitter, and almost reminds me of a fresh-hopped ale. Everything melds together quite nicely. No malt and no alcohol taste. Fantastic.
M: Nice and dry from the abundance of hops. Medium bodied with good carbonation.
D: Very drinkable. A bit bitter to be extremely quaffable, but it’s right up there. I’ve got fresh Two Hearted in the fridge, and I’m definitely sticking with this. I have nothing but very high praise for this one.
Serving type: growler

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy light orange with a small white head. Aroma of tons of citrus, hop oils, and grapefruit. Flavor again of citrus, hop oils, light fruits. Great crisp palate with malty notes in the finish. This one reminds me of Hopslam. Great IPA!
