Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 10-03-2002

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.

Pours a hazy, copper color. One inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of sweet malt, hint of rye, slight pine, hint of citrus, hint of alcohol, hint of wheat, hint of floral, and hops. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. The bitterness level is high. Tastes of sweet malt, hint of rye, slight pine, hint of citrus, hint of alcohol, and a hint of floral. Overall, a little sharp, too bitter, but otherwise a decent IPA.

Classic wet hopped ipa. Really nice tropical fruit bitterness.

Copper color. Nice hoppy nose. Malt forward. The bitterness on the finish is meager to say the least.
