Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: orangesol on 05-31-2014

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Philly Beer Week is upon us once again, and to commemorate the occasion our brewers have developed a hefty Double IPA as cumbersome as the legendary symbol that embodies the week-long celebration – the Hammer of Glory! Scratch #145 was soaked in some of our favorite American hops before being dry-hopped with two classic citrus-forward varieties (Amarillo and Cascade) to overload the senses with orange and grapefruit. The result is a massive hop bomb teetering on the fringes of 9% ABV that’s sure to provide one with the stamina to wield the coveted Hammer of Glory.

Beer was poured into a snifter at the Union Brewhouse in Weymouth.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a hazy pale orange with good clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Nice lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Floral, pungent, grassy, tropical, citrus, lemon, pine, caramel, bready, and a little booze.

Taste: Awesome hop flavor with balanced malt background, mild bitterness, and a little booze in the rear.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, thirst quenching, a little booze, medium carbonation, mild tingly bitterness, and medium to full bodied.

Overall: Love the scratch series beers these guys are doing. Especially this one. Very popular beer tonight at the bar. Happy to have gotten a taste. Hope it lasts to have a second. (803 characters)

Clear dark gold/light amber color. Decent head that leaves blotchy spots for lace.

This smells of pine resin and grated grapefruit peel. Touch of alcohol.

Starts with a surprisingly strong pale malt taste. This actually lasts through the aftertaste. Well balanced, especially for a DIPA. Very smooth mouthfeel with a bit of alcohol warmth. The hop component is straight bitterness but in a muted way. Superior. (414 characters)
