Best by date of August 2014

A: Golden crystal clear honey hue with 1 finger of thick creamy head. The head lasts a good while and leaves good lacing down the glass.

S: Strong aroma of floral hops with a lot of malt sweetness. The aroma is more bitter than the taste of this one. Hints of honey, caramel and mango in there.

T: Nice mango fruity hop flavor that finishes with a clean vanilla/caramel finish. Hops dominate the palate up front with the mango sweetness and piney finish but are not overly bitter or punchy. More balanced ipa with the malt sweetness combined with the mango sweet flavor in the hops leave you with more of a sweet balanced ipa more than an overly bitter flavor.

M: Medium to thin mouthfeel, nice carbonation to finish the beer off with a slightly sweet aftertaste.

O: Nice balanced version of a west coast style ipa.Good solid beer, but I was expecting more of punchy up front hop flavor and aroma with a name like Death by Hops. I thought the hop blend was good giving it a slightly sweet flavor and good malt profile to balance out the total flavor. Overall good beer but the name left me wanting more of a hop bitter punch.

22 ounce bomber -> tulip glass

A - pours up crystal clear copper with a two finger off white head. Retention is decent and lacing is extensive.

S - very pine, resin, and earthy

T - strong caramel malt presence with very bitter piney hops on the finish. A bit spicy too.

M - thinner than I expected for a taste that big. Good carbonation

O - loved this one. Nice and bitter. Not sure what the IBUs for this one is but I bet it is in excess of 75.
