On a rusty afternoon, hands covered on the spices of hatch, Dortmund rolling the ball, this brew entertains me. Ruby, staring back at me, waiting for the connection, sending me messages of cherry, honey, flowers. Then... It happens. I taste sweet bitterness. Everything an I.P.A. Has to offer and then some. Everything I smelled is there. But in a language my taste buds understand. Apricot, chillin with me. Smooth, nice, I dig it.

This is a rich golden-caramel color in the glass, topped with a cap of thin foam made of tiny, tightly laced bubbles. There is a present but not overpowering hop aroma that’s misleading—because the taste is all about hops! From first sip on there’s a bitter intensity—or an intense bitterness—that defines the Buckethead IPA for me. I would describe it as a sharp, biting hop-forward piney-grassy flavor, with just a touch of sweetness for balance.
