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.

12 oz. bottle tried 29 Oct 2011. Courtesy of R&S, thanks! Served in the 0.5 L Adambrau becker.

Did not record batch number.

Large tight tan head. Lightly carbonated. Clear ruby copper in color with a few relatively large floaties. Aroma is sweet caramel and resin with a touch of orange. Starts hoppy and resiny with sweet orange, stays this way throughout. Light body, moderately warming ethanol. Finish is a light lingering citric bitterness.

Flavors all seem slightly muted.
