32 ounce growler
Served in a teku glass

It pours amber, borderline copper, in color. A modest beige head tops this beverage. The head didn't stick around long and left little lacing.

The smell is fantastic, tropical and citrus fruits galore. Mango and pineapple come to mind. There is a little pine as well.

The taste is exactly what I expected following the nose. Tropical fruits with a little citrus and a pine finish.

It is smooth with a medium body.

Another great IPA from an Ohio brewery. I think we are getting spoiled here.

Brew Kettle is like flying right under the radar but higher than all the other guys that are flying under the radar as well. This dipa is overflowing with dank tropical aromas and flavor. Ohio is a great place to be for hop heads.

Hoppier than White Rajah, another tasty IPA from Brew Kettle. On tap at Pies and Pints Easton.

An aggressively hopped brew that is sure to satisfy anyone's hop craving. I get a slight onion taste or I would have scored even higher. Still, a really nice beer.
