Warning: this is a high-octane beer.
Hoppocratic starts in a chalice glass, brilliant copper color, low head but sticks around for a long time. Lacy remains on the side of the glass.
Very mild grapefruit scent, taste is complex with plenty of hoppiness but also a bit of hop resin afterward. Very big taste.
Now I've got to visit GSB and meet the brewers!
Serving type: on-tap

Swung by the brewery minutes ago and smapled on draft and grabbed a fill to go (and some bottles). I eagerly await the new snifters, but this review is from the classic gab mason jug (growler filler ~30 minutes ago).
a - brew pours a semi transparent amber orange with a generous frothy IPA head. Attractive for certain. Solid sheets of lacing coat the glass as the head vanishes but never fully leaves...always at least a skin of froth on the surface.
s - nose is super dank. Really rich and fresh. Pine cone end of the hop spectrum for the nose. Sticky bitter hops.
t/m - as the nose suggests, this beer is not for the faint of heart. The flavor is even more bold and robust than the nose suggested. Leading with pine cone bitterness and lushness. On the sweeter end of the spectrum, but I like my double IPAs sweet. A hint of the booziness is present in the flavor and really tingles my mouth. Even carb. Bitter finish.
o - I have said it before and I will say it again, I am really pumped about what is happening on Li these days. Are they making the best beer I have tried? No, but they are making beer that competes with everything available locally, but most promising is that they keep getting better and batter and are experimenting. I missed the last batch of this beer so can't comment on progress here, but definitely digging this. A bit sweet, a bit bitter,a bit awesome. Worth checking out...if you are local, you would be crazy not to jump on this ASAP. Pretty sure bottles will sell out today, but it suspect it will be available all around town in the near future on draft...if not already.
Cheers gsb, nice job!
