Brenda and I sped across Missoula to make it to Kettlehouse... She's getting more and more agitated.. but she isn't saying... and then we make it to a Roaring taproom on Myrtle.. It's raining.. and there is little chance that we're getting out quickly. I decided to try the Hopnosis because the lady behind the bar couldn't tell me what style it was... I was HOPING for a DIPA.. but found out after talking to a few of the locals that it is a very hoppy APA... oh well.. it is pretty damn good.
Poured into a standard shaker pint.. fairly clear golden orange brew with a good head and lace..
Aroma is every bit a good American IPA.. pithy citrus and only lite malts.
The palate is pretty fucking bitter for a pale ale... the malts are just prevalent enough to not make this a "drink and move on beer". Big hoppy mid palate is bordering on too much.. it needs more malt for such a small beer. Good carbonation and body.. but honestly.. more hops do not always equal a better beer.... balance is a virtue... The malts are there for a reason.
I got a growler of this before I even took a sip of the glass.... I'm excited to see what the Boise geeks think.
Serving type: on-tap
