Notes/Commercial Description:
Burnished gold with a rich citrus hop aroma, it is wonderfully drinkable with a big hop flavor. We’ve knicknamed it Hop3 (hop cubed) ale to reflect the enormous amount of hops in this beer: over 3 pounds per barrel! It is hopped 3 ways: in the kettle, in the hop back, and dry hopped.

4.7/5  rDev +16.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

12 oz. brown bottle with best before notch of APR 06.

Clear light amber in color with a clingy egg-shell tinted froth.

Delightful grapefruit aromas along with an almost candy like orange tint. Some herbal notes and a tinge of caramel as well.

Medium body with a pleasant carbonation, some creaminess, and a resinous mouth coating. Big grapefruit flavors come right out at the top. Mandarin orange burps. A nice sweetness fades out into a long citric finish.

I'm not sure how this beer came to be categorized as a double IPA on the site, (maybe the HOP3 on the label?). I reviewed it as an IPA, and regardless of style, it is one fine ass example of tasty beer. I'll be looking for this one again.
