Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: John on 12-05-2010

Voraciously hoppy and not overly bitter. The Kind brings enormous aroma and maximum flavor. It's like taking a walk through a pine forest and ending up at a citrus farm. This beer brings joy to the world, one sip at a time.

Pours an opaque, bordering on clear, gold producing 2 fingers of frothy, white, moderately lasting head that leaves clumpy, frost like sheets & webs of lace. Aroma is thin for the style: delicate caramel malt, dough with likewise delicate pineapple, grapefruit, lemon & floral hop hints. Taste is more robust than the nose & less balanced being more sweet & malt forward & less hoppy even though it becomes nicely bitter in the finish. Sweet caramel malt forward backed by tropical fruit & citrus hops with floral hints in the background. Finishes bittersweet but transitions into a resinous bitter hop bite, with only a little peppery prickle becoming mostly dry, bitter & astringent in the aftertaste. Off balance of hop bitterness & malt sweetness for the style. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation, slightly slick, dry & drawing aftertaste.

I receive this as a periodic holiday gift and enjoy it's piney taste and smell. I always sit and savor a pint of this. My only disappointment might be the color; but it certainly doesn't impact the great taste.

Live within an hour of Honeoye Falls where this stuff is brewed. Grabbed it at a local grocery store. I had one so far and am not so sure what to do with rest of my 6 pack. Please just stop rating beers 4 out of 5 stars because the letters IPA are on the bottle. Sorry if im being too harsh. Theres definitely better choices out there than this.

Cool artwork on bottle...hear a lot of good things about 3HB but haven't visited yet

A: urine color, finger of white head with good retention poured from bottle

S: dank and piney with a bright flash of citrusy hops

T: pine washed over with citrus. Big hop taste without any unwanted bitterness.

M: smooth, balanced for a big IPA with good carbonation and no lingering flavors

O: I've passed this beer over so many times for absolutely no reason. So glad I finally tried it. Solid IPA. Really digging all the 3HB stuff I've tried lately
