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.

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.

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.
