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.

I was hoping to be blown away by the wet hops, but I wasn't. I paired the bottle with a mushroom and swiss burger. It left me thirstier than before the food. There was nothing particularly bad about this beer, but nothing extraordinary either. The aftertaste was subdued by the feeling of needing something else to quench my thirst.

12oz bottle with no date. A fresh hop IPA from these guys.

Look is a dark IPA color, clear, no chunkies (boo!). Smell is a whole cast of hop aromas: dank, wet, sweet. Taste is juicy and fruity, with a solid backbone of sweet savory malt.

Interesting wet hop beer. I wonder what hops were used.
