4.4/5 rDev +0.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
A: Honey orange, nice lacing
S: Piney smells are the most prominent with some floral as well.
T: Mostly piney hops with a mild, but perfectly appropriate amount of balancing malt.
M: Light and crisp, appropriate levels of carbonation.
D: I could drink this one all day long if I metabolized alcohol like mosquitos do, but I don't, so let me say it another way. My mouth could drink this one all day long but the 8% ABV would knock my ass out after an hour or two.
Pure Hoppiness was one of the first harder core IPA's that I loved. It truly is Pure Hoppiness.
Serving type: growler

If you really like malt forward, bitter IPAs, as opposed to fruity, tropical IPAs, then you'll like it.
It isn't clean. It's dirty and earthy and bitter. The hops are harsh. The beer lashes at your tongue.
And I love it.
This is not Heady Topper. It is not fun. It is beautiful in its own way. Darker than your average IPA, with a light head. Perfect IPA mouthful. So much onion flavor. Green onion and yellow onion.
Serving type: bottle
