Thunderhop in a pint glass from the bottle.

A: deep brown with a hint of reds. one finger tan lacing that compacts into a neat thin disk. Nice lookin beer.

S: Smell is a littly piney, resiny. A little bit of graininess.

T: I am getting a significant amount of malty character. Extremely balanced for a beer called Thunderhop. Citrusy, piney and sweet biscuit. bitterness settles in entering the finish. The more it warms up and the more I drink, the more it gets semi-sweet.

M: medium carbonation and coarse hops combine for a semi-dry finish. Bitterness lingers noticibly.

D: moderately drinkable. Not silky smooth, not sickly sweet, not a blast of uncontrollable hops. It's a nicely balanced beer that is suitable for a few shared with friends.

On tap at the brewery. Pours amber colored with a small white head. Aroma of pine, some grass, caramel malts. Flavor follows the smell closely with light bitter, pine notes, caramel malts, light sweetness. Medium mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Not bad but not particularly impressed either.

Had this again while out at Jerome Bettis' Grille, and it tasted much better. Lots more bite and just seemed fresher than the keg at the brewery, which is strange. Anyway, worth a try and I guess I'd have it again if I were in the mood.

Serving type: on-tap
