OUR REAL DEAL HOP BOMB. Satisfaction IPA opens up with a pronounced fruity and floral nose, followed by an ample snap of bitterness and a lingering hop finish of grapefruit pith.
THIS BEER IS FOR TRUE HOPS FANATICS and it happens to be our staff's favorite.

On tap at the pub, 1/23/12

Poured into a pint glass, the dim lighting may have affected the appearance slightly. A partially hazy golden hued brew with decent head, I prefer my IPAs a bit on the hazy side so this worked well for me!

Smelled extremely floral. Very inviting aroma, but almost made me nervous that it would be an overly sweet IPA

Tasted like it smelled, but wasn't super sweet like I feared! Good floral notes, reminded me very much of a west-coast style IPA right here in my backyard.

Overall: I'll definitely be back for more. Very appealing IPA, I can't wait to try their other brews!

Tap at the brew pub.

Hazy golden bright orange yellow color, little fizzy head

Nose is big bright hops, fresh citrus and mild tropical fruit notes, nice fruity grapefruit orange juice, light malt

Taste bright citrus fruity hops, like tropical notes, little grapefruit, orange peel, pith, turns a bit spicy and herbal tea like, gets quite pithy too, orange velvety cake like. Finish is long spicy earthy hops, chewy, pithy, etc.

Mouth is med bod, booze hidden well, nice carb.

Overall pretty nice, a bit better than I expected for so many different hops that I expected to kinda clash, and they do a bit, but there are still some nice components flashing through.

On tap served in a tasting glass

Translucent golden yellow. White foam layer. Some carbonation.

Aroma of pine and grapefruit citrus. Nice bouquet.

Smooth start, pine and and then citrus. Good malt balance.

Medium mouthfeel with some decent carbonation . Sharper hop bite on the aftertaste that the Another Lover.

A good beer worthy of a repeat. Second best of the night. Another Lover is my go to.

On tap at the brew pub.
Comes to the table a clear light gold color with a decent sized off white head. Smells of resinous pine and bits of citric fruit. Very light bready malt almost pokes through. The flavor is spicy resinous dank hop with a huge pithy grapefruit bite. Medium body with a moderate amount of carbonation and a sharp resinous bitter mouthfeel. Decent beer, but the hops come off a bit harsh at times.

To start off I'm completely confused by this "brewery" that makes it's beers at Paper City in Holyoke but I digress-
This was just an average hop bomb, it was kind of fun to drink, perhaps some wild yeast thing, Bret?, going on in the background but there was no balance. Nothing made me say wow that is one interesting beer. It drank fine, it was mildly refreshing but over all meh. I know that this American hop slam thing is all the rage but this seemed to be hoppy just to cover up its brewing flaws.
