Notes/Commercial Description:
Early fall had farmers picking whole cone hops and shipping them to us overnight to brew a wet hop beer. We kicked up a black beer with a very sticky hop character. Beware of the StickyFat Bear.

Bought a couple bottles on a visit to Half Acre.
Pours black with a creamy 1/2" head. Aroma is subdued. Flavor is smoky with a a little bite. I'm a little surprised how quickly I drank this - very tasting - I'm glad I bought 2 bombers.

Black thinner pour with a small white head. Roasted chocolate aroma. Big chocolate flavor with a small hoppy presence. Much more like a porter than black IPA, but still some hoppyness.
