Pours a rich honey color with an small, off-white, head, really more of a film. Retention is phenomenal. Great sheets of lacing.
Smell is herbal hops up front followed by some hay, floral and faint malt.
Taste is hops, floral and herbaceous, hay, malt (light), and some lipstick (ooh, no) in the background.
Medium bodied, light carbonation. Warming after the swallow. Except for the lipstick note lingering on, this is really quite good.

A-Cloudy almost bright orange. One finger head that doesn't last long.

S-Bread. Malt. A little bit of citrus and orange flavors.

T- Sorta sweet, as the style would suggest. Sweetness is mainly in the form of malt and bread with a tad bit of citrus thrown in as well.

M-Lighter, not much carbonation, tad watery.

O-A good cream ale. The style is normally an avoidable one to me but this one was enjoyable but not great.

Capital Brewing : Hop Cream

LOOK: Pours a bright copper color with soapy head. There is a moderate chill haze and plenty of lace going down the glass.

SMELL: Hops come in floral in the aroma, along with sweet toffee and caramel malts.

TASTE: An interesting blend of hop and cream ale features, with fair bitterness and orange citrus pairing with a sugary sweetness. The hops and sweetness gives off a flavor that reminds me of melon. Ample bitterness to suit the vanilla like unfermented sugars, the bottle lists the IBU at 34.

FEEL: Medium bodied, well carbonated feel. Finishes more or less clean.

OVERALL: A fresh new angle on a cream ale. The hops worked well with the inherent sweetness and everything worked well together. This is the type of cream ale I could drink a few of. Well done.
