L: Pours hazy gold under a lacy, sticky 2” off-white to cream foam column that takes 4 minutes to descend to ¼ its original size.

S: Grassy, minty, herbal hop aromas over rich malt. The hop aromas are medium high, the malt aromas are medium.

T: Starts with a light, mild caramel and malt sweetness with a trace of melon and citrus that quickly gives way to a bitter hop accent and hop driven astringency and drying on the finish. The malt is a touch above medium balanced by the medium high hops. The hops are right on the border of being harsh.

F: Medium body and carbonation.

O: An assertively hopped IPA.

Traitor IPA has a thick, overflowing, off-white head of foam, an opaque, bubbly, orange-gold appearance, and thin lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of oily, vegetal, hop resin and background white bread. Taste is of piney, resiny hop oil, onion skin, faint rotten vegetable, and white bread. Bitterness is bold, yet not harsh. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, and Traitor IPA finishes on the dry and drinkable end.

from 12oz bottle
A-pours a mostly clear copper/amber color with an off white head that stayed around to reveal some nice lacing
S-tropical notes and malts and bread
T-melon citrus and mango it had a garden dankness with some sweet caramel malts but the hops prevail on the finish
M-medium coronation with dank resinous hop that are so drinkable very little bitterness but a smooth tasty IPA
O- one of the best brews from BH ive had would not hesitate to this on tap if i see when out
