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.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

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 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.

Enjoyed at High Horse in Amherst.

A - Poured into a standard pint glass a hazy golden hue with a one finger head that faded to leave thin side lacing and a thin blanket.

S - Aromas of light citrus, oranges, faint tropical pineapple, light grapefruit. Nice assertive orange zest, pleasant.

T - Taste is similar to the nose, quite hoppy. Nice grapefruit, oranges, citrus rind, faint pith, good light pineapple, faint tropical notes, nice light malts. Good bitter finish. Very enjoyable.

M - Mouthfeel is pleasant, nice carbonation, strong bitter finish.

O - Overall this beer was very drinkable, good hop profile. Nice finish alcohol hidden well. Nice
