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.

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.

Bottle > Pint Glass

A - Clear amber color, one finger of off white head, medium lacing.
S - Honey, bread and biscuit malt, some light citrus zest, candied orange.
T - Malt forward for sure, tons of biscuit and sweet caramel, some grapefruit, light pine, big sweet orange.
M - Sticky sweet and clingy.
O - Too malt focused, dominates the usage of the "wet hops", which is a real shame.
