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.
