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.

Many thanks to Px2GrafX for the special hookup on this little guy!

Bottled June 06. A very fun looking brown 12oz bottle. Pouring in to my trusty stone pint glass.

Pours a rather transparent burnt orange leaning towards yellow. Very small head is fading somewhat quickly, despite the flurry of bubble action. Lacing is there, but doesn't stay long. It's kind of strange, I've never seen lacing like this.

Nose is floral hops with a hint of tropical fruity hops. Very, very inviting. This is arguably one of the best smelling IPAs I’ve ever had the pleasure of lifting to my nose.

A pretty quick burst of floral hops, quickly rushing into a faint lemony tropical hop. Not much else to it, it doesn’t stick around long. It’s quite pleasing despite its lack of complexity, and its got an absolutely wonderful mouth feel.

I could easily drink this all night. Quite frankly, I think I’d rather drink this all night than 90 minute (please don’t hit me!)

Thanks again, Px2!!
