American IPA |  5.80% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
The first of the brews from Pittsburgh’s newest and MICRO-est microbrewery to hit the streets. Truly, a hopped-up American IPA with loads of Centennial and Cascade hops, and just barely enough malt backbone to balance it out. Our flagship brew

East End Big Hop on tap.

Hazy true amber. Some red-orange hues. Creamy head. Great lacing.

Stinky piney hops of a potent pellet nature. Pine sap, grapefruit pith, spicy/floral notes, as well. Pine forward with a wacky aromatic bitterness and semi-sweet malt undertone.

Massively bitter hops. Pine crazy and super dry. The flowery flavors also come to fruition. Much drier than the smell. Clean and crackery. Can't get over the mega-bitterness. Battery acid tongue. Macerates the palate. Unreal. Some grassiness, Swiss chard, mint, let's just describe this as green.

Silky with a carb that's held in check. Light on booze.

A local hit. East End does a really good job on many of their brews. I look forward to the Harvest, but drink this in the meanwhile.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Enjoyed this on tap out a pint glass.

A: Pours a golden thick white head that quickly dissipates.

S: Mild hop and malt aroma.

T: Similar to the smell there is a good balance between bitter hops and sweet malt.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation

O: Decent IPA – nothing special.
