on tap at irish pol in philly
Pours a dark amber color with a layer of beige head. Filmy retention slowly dissolves, leaving some spotty lacing on the glass.
Slightly bitter in the nose with some citrus notes. Faint sweetness and bready malts with caramel. Not particularly exciting.
Light bitterness with oily hops and leafy notes. Dry pine notes with resin. Thick, sticky malt backbone with bread crust and caramel sweetness. Light warmth towards the finish.
Medium body, decent carbonation, sticky and dry on the tongue. This is a pretty nondescript IPA, and the name is laughable. Not something I'd seek out to drink again.
Serving type: on-tap

Had high hopes with a name like Hop Explosion. Strong showing I must admit. Color was orangy amber. Head was thick but faded quickly. Nose/aroma was good when opened but also faded quickly in tulip glass. Finally taste was unsurprising the same mighty tasty at first "sip" than not much afterward. All said, best to spend money elsewhere!
