Hoptimistic IPA (India Pale Ale) has intense hop bitterness and flavor. This ale is further characterized by fruity, floral and citrus-like aromas due to American-variety hops. This copper/orange hued ale has a nicely balanced medium maltiness which contributes to a medium body that goes down easy, leaving a lingering bitterness that is hard to resist.

Appearance: Cloudy, golden amber with nice head of off-white suds. Thin, but lively lace.

Aroma: Floral and citrus hops. Nice!

Taste: Nicely bitter and hoppy. I get grapefruit and pine notes, as this one goes in heavy-handed with the hops in typical American IPA fashion. A tasty, solid, and well worthy brew for hop fiends, and one I’d not hesitate to try again! Well-done!
