Availability: Fall

Notes/Commercial Description:
Heavy Handed IPA is brewed to celebrate the harvesting of the hops every year. Within moments of harvest we add freshly picked "Wet Hops" to this IPA. Since the hops have not been dried before use, they add a wonderful character found in no other beer. A hop lovers dream. (Available September through December) Each batch is "single hopped" with a different hop variety.

Bottle from Tipples with no date, just says "Cascade" where the date goes. Poured 8/17/14. Pours murky bronze with a big off white head. Aroma of straight malt juice, not a hop to be found here. Seriously straight bready malts, toffee, and some caramel. Flavor follows that closely making this a decent barleywine, but nothing close to resembling an IPA. Medium bodied, medium carbonation. Honestly this is good the way it is, just wasn't looking for a barleywine, which is exactly what this is really. One of the better non-BA American style barleywines I have had though. I guess ill rate it as it tastes but it's lower because it was supposed to be an IPA.
