on tap at the brewpub

Clouded golden pour with a thick topping of bone white head. Filmy rings of lacing cling to the glass while drinking. Extremely fragrant nose with lush, fresh cut hoppiness, sweet fruit and citrus zest. Heavy-handed dosage of hops on the tongue right up front with citrus peel, hoppy spice and nice bitterness. There's an extraordinary melon flavor throughout, juicy and flavorful on top of a mild malty backbone. Fruity, lightly sweet and bitter in the finish. Medium body, well carbonated and slightly creamy on the tongue.

This was a dead-on hit during the HandFarm B2 release day, and I was bummed to learn there was only 2 kegs produced (no growler fills either). The brew was created by blending Infinite Energy and Hop Hands together, then dry hopping with 4 lbs (2lbs per keg) of fresh hops harvested from Jean's own plants. The hop strains are unknown, so the mashup of flavors was a fun guessing game, although the melon was probably one of the more dominant flavors. I hope they're able to do this again someday.
