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.

Pours a beautiful semi-hazy orange color with a creamy off white head that clings to the glass sip after sip. The aroma is a strong citrus hop scent and the flavor is also very very hoppy. It is no wonder why they call it a "hop ale". The flavor is complex and full of citrus and earthy hops. Although it is packed with hop taste, there is still a smooth balance with sweet malt. The body is mild with moderate carbonation and is very drinkable. The flavors flow nicely together and fade gently with a slightly tart finish.
